Raspberries to: The crane driver who caused Victoria Street and surrounding roads to be shut at around 12.30. The driver of the car that caused the crash at Earl's Court that created gridlock around the area at the same time, though I hope no-one was hurt. The white van driver who (a) ignore a yellow box junction at Wandsworth (b) stalled his vehicle inches in front me (c) gave me a single finger salute when I glared at him (I don't think he played in the third section at Stevenage, and didn't like my comments, but you never know) and (d) then couldn't re-start his van. To all the car drivers close to this incident who would not let me reverse, or let me out. The people responsible for two sets of traffic lights being out of order in Mortlake adding around 15 minutes to my journey. ...all of whom played a part in it taking me two hours and 5 minutes to get from St James's Park to Mortlake Crematorium and end up being late for my friend Jon's funeral. Roses to: LBB who came along to help out because I asked him to The chauffer driver of the Rolls Royce who did let me out at Wandsworth The people who took the time to seek us out to say thank you for playing The two readers who summed up Jon brilliantly, one by reading one of Jon's poems, and one by reciting a poem he wrote on hearing of Jon's death. A certain member of Fulham Band without whom I'd have struggled to get through the day and drive home safely. Jon Smith was a fun guy, and I like to think he'd have ribbed me about being late. I went to 2 of his famous parties in Richmond, and I suffered appaling traffic on both occasions, to be genially ribbed by him. Rest in peace, Jon. The world is less of a place without you.
