Yesterday a guy arrived on his motorbike to stay there, and as we were all four of us sitting in the sunshine drinking tea, we got chatting. He told us about his travels and mentioned he had a facebook blog. On asking where he originally hails from, he told us Gisborne. Aha, we all four of us said, we know people from Gisborne who live on their narrowboat. Barry Teutenberg (sp?) we said. I know Barry he said, he is a very close friend of mine and a party animal.
So Barry and Sandra, we have met and exchanged hummus** with your friend Nigel Reichenbach! He mentioned 186 Derby Street and said you would remember it ...
|Nigel with Irene and Ian|
|And with me|
Howzat for 2 degrees of separation then?
** Nigel had bought hummus without checking the label, discovered that the one he bought had gluten, so gave it to me. So he had some to eat, I gave him our already opened tub. Score for us as his was untouched!
We didn't have long with him as he has already headed away this morning, but we will keep up with his facebook blog. I've had a quick look. Check it out: search for wandering weka
