Actually I was really glad to have him here (in the grand scheme of things he was a godsend.) I've met some people in my time and for a seventeen-year old - which seems a lifetime away these days - the lad's up there, right on form, and right on par with Scottish Dean from back in the New Zealand days. Dean had that natural rare gift of blinding you with inspiration, Jay's got the tools and the fibre to become one of life's giants - so many things fundamentally in place that are just itching to be nurtured. I couldn't wait to clip him round the ear and tuck him under the Woz wing. We managed to get him started with a mate of mine Matty, who's just set up a company making silly money doing carpentry. Jay was the final piece in the Matty jigsaw. All good.
Today saw us squeeze ourselves into the liveliest event of the year: race day - a huge day here in Kalgoorlie and a perfect opportunity to see something other than fluorescent jackets and empty glasses. The weather was glorious, the beer was cold and the day was lazy - cruisy times for new beginnings..
