Saltysplash, gazza, kris and Johnv to this Summer's haul so far. Not met many boaters 'cos there are so very few boats on the move up North. Have not met any gits, only nice people. Nice boater waited for us in Beal and had the lock ready and gates open for us, he had overtaken us earlier.
Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
I hope that I never become famous and someone trawls my contributions on this site looking for the odd post which may be offensive.
We've met a couple from this site....Dogless (Rog & Jane & their beautiful flower array on top of their boat) this summer, Jenlyn (Steve) & his lovely partner and I must say he is a really nice person and ever so helpful & generous.
From the other site we've met: Ray T. and although he was very nice and helpful when we first bought the boat, seems to have a real hate for WB's now Capt Fizz who is a #1 guy and a great welder, Terry & his lovely boat Ollie Keeping Up (Alan) nice gentleman I "think" we've met Delta 9 when buying an achnor from him when we were in Braunston Marina?? whether it was him or not, he was a nice guy David Schwnezer (sp) bought one of his oil lamps - I love the lamp we've also met Alan & Kath Fincher - I hate to admit it, but we've had them on the boat for coffee & sweets - that won't be happening again any time soon:) I'll leave it at that, my Dad always said if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Oh, we've met Barry as well, the one with Ricco the dog...same rule applies
I've met Alan Fincher too at a CWDF banter. And briefly spoke to Kath too, i would happily chat with Kath again but tbh i found Alan boring as hell. I dont profess to be the most interesting person to meet but i suspect he could talk a bloody glass eye to sleep.
Barry I have met too and he seemed OK, better for getting to know better i suspect.
I met JohnV today and his boat Sabina H, we went to Woodwards the propeller people and had some fun with his propshaft which I suspect will continue tomorrow fingers crossed the big puller will do it!!!
Lost in wonder at the world and often wondering how I got there
