Hello Neat Romers
Those of you who know me from back in the day will know I'm usually full of life and cracking jokes or writing songs .. I've come to know some real gentlemen and one lady in particular (not you Aleyson)
To those who have been with me I'd appreciate it if I could mention that at 10.02pm EU time Calvo SR passed. He was a bit of a noob but he loved me talking about my rom, he constantly wished that he could fathom modern technology, a few months back I showed him the original Calvo1 mod for LPG. I showed him what it looked like before and then he looked on in amazement as I went into recovery and flashed it and showed him the result..... "is that what I did?" He said ha ha
He loved hacking but knew very little about it so he was delighted with it. He honestly thought that I worked for MI5
Over the past few days I've been showing him my phone when the nurses weren't looking... I brought in Pepsi cans and pictures of local tourist spots and used Google goggles... Words cannot express his utter delight at something that is so unbelievable to somebody from his generation. Google Sky blew his mind!
My favourite moment was when I challenged him with Shazam using the hospotal radio.... He did not believe it was possible... And you know what... He proved me wrong once.... One of his favourite songs is/was "stranger in the city" and my phone didn't recognise it..... With the biggest smile on his face he said "I may be old but I know more than that piece of ****e that you look at all day"
He was right... He did... Calvo Sr was a true gentleman, he fought in the British Army for 13 years and was middleweight champ for the green jackets for 4 of them
My dad was 5ft 5 (and a half) but one of life's true old school rock hard men
I will miss him, I all ready am... There are tears on this screen as I type. I would like to say thank you to Bob, ESD, TRB, Rosario and Aprillia ( and obviously Sale)... He knew who you all were.... Technology fascinated him but unfortunately it couldn't save him
This is very personal but I feel that this is my family too and i should share
Thanks for all of your support guys
Give me time and I will be back writing songs and posting pictures...
Unknown to everyone Sale dedicated a mod to Alan SR and in that way he will always be part of this Neat Rom Family... As I hope I always will be too
If I may I'm going to post his favourite song that bamboozled Shazam... I'd appreciate it if you all listened to it
Good night Dad, I love you
