Message from Don Charles:
Just thought you OTC guys, I have in my address book, might be interested, last saw cuddly Kevan (not in my time) over at Olympics in Sydney were he was a trackside official. Went with him on one of our coinciding days off to show him a bit of Sydney, was his first visit to Sydney I think.
Then maybe it was the time I was travelling on an esculater in David Jones Karrinyup, going up and Santa was on the down set, in full uniform, the next thing I knew Santa was attempting to go up on the down, taking great strides and yelling “Charlsie how ya going” as he attempted to overcome the downward movement to meet me at the top. Think he was on a lunch break or somesuch. Caused a few heads to turn.
Seems Hookie must have mellowed over time, very sad way to end it all though.
