Time really does fly!

Chris, that's a lovely headstone on Malcolm's grave :D

We'll never forget Malcolm on here... I still often happen across his posts and always have a good giggle at them...

He lives on in spirit ;)

I was only thinking of his percywotsit yesterday as I was struggling with some leaks.

That is a perfect headstone for Malcom, well worth the wait and the effort.

The headstone is lovely Chris.
Malcolm regularly enters my thought process especially when I'm getting a bit fed up with something and I need some PERCYWATSIT. I can still hear his great accent!

Cannot believe Malcolm has passed away, a true Gent with a huge and wicked sense of Humour and an even bigger heart. No question went unanswered and the knowledge imparted was priceless.
where ever you are Malcolm, i hope your Percywhatsits are in full flow.

I'm really sorry to hear about this. I had advice and help from Citronut many of times and very greatfull RIP

I only seen this post now I've not been online much with work and doing my house up so catching up with things online a bit now.

I never met him in person but I could tell he wanted to help as much as he could and will be sadly missed.

It dose not seem possible it is 2years today that malcom past away


I never knew his surname. Was he Austrian? Goldberger. Definitely sounds like he could have been one of Sylv's people. In fact, there was an Austrian skijumper called Andreas Goldberger.
