  19. Baz,

    You were my first mentor in the work life,,you drove me to work every day for 2 years…. Don’t be late or I’m leaving you!!
    you taught me how to drive manual “effectively” and my last fond memory, two years ago just having a beer at 8am in your driveway. And having a laugh that it only took you 5 years to paint your fence!!
