    From what people have told me … Kelly is one of the most friendly obliging people you could meet.

  • no doubt phil! i just got that feeling he was trying to avoid everyone;) lol been mobbed everytime you go near the water must get tiring after a while…especially on the gold coast where 90% of the population knows who kelly is..i even had a couple in their 50’s or 60’s come up and ask if that was kelly and wanted me to email them a copy lol (not thats old; lol)
