Fred Dibnah

Fred Dibnah

I am currently (I mean at this moment) watching The Fred Dibnah Storyon UKTV Documentaries. The world is a sadder place for the loss of this great man. You may not agree with his beliefs, principles, call them what you want. But he was a genuine principled man who gave his all for his work, no vocation. I have just heard him say, after his first divorce that he felt he was becoming the man down the pub, propping up the bar and realised it had to change. Fred, I hope, wherever you are, the great steam rally in the sky, the great chimney in the sky or the great pile of bricks in the sky (!) that you can read this. To me and many others you would never be that. What a better world we would live in if more of us were like you. I regret deeply that I never met you in person. But I feel that I know you. I hope they have chimneys, steam engines and Guinness in heaven!
