Fame At Last

It is always very heartening to realise that people actually read this blog. I've long been used to folk sidling up to me at country funerals and addressing me as 'Nelly' and only today I was in Tescos when one of the employees greeted me thus,

Good to see you wearing shoes that match!

Although I cannot beat Hannah's experience - for she was walking her little dog on the river path when a complete stranger came up to her and spoke to the dog,

Hello Ziggy!

She then said (rather shyly) to Ziggy's owner,

I read your blog.

I think I called you Nelly the first time we met!

Nelly said...

I tried very hard not to call you Grannymar and it took me ten years to pronounce your real name correctly.

Wow, that is pretty cool.

I've never had that happen face to face, which is probably a good thing...

Brig - this is a small place. Everyone knows someone that knows everyone else. Also, I have about a hundred cousins.
