I wanted to end the week sharing a picture with you that I received this week from a friend in the UK.
Sean started off as a ‘friend of a friend’, someone that I used to go riding with (Sports Motorbikes) on a Sunday. The initial friend faded away but Sean and I have remained friends. His family have stayed in our apartment in Spain several times when we have been in Florida, and when I do go back to the UK I try and see him.
A fireman and a Black cab driver Sean is a ‘salt of the earth’ guy, with tremendous family values and a very close and fun family.
So when I received the picture I was really happy for him as he had been after an old Ferrari for years. In fact this car used to belong to his friend who sold it in 1999, but Sean tracked it down on the internet as he has always wanted it and is now the proud owner.
The picture was taken at Silverstone during the 60th celebration of Ferrari, while trying to break the world record for road cars on the circuit, 386 cars took part and apparently it was quiet a sight seeing so many Ferraris and having one to take part in, according to Sean.
Well there you are – my feel good post to end the week. I am really happy for Sean – and without the power of the internet it is unlikely that his dreams would have been realised.
