Our new motorhome is here and it's a girl. We have named her Nellie Bly after the travel journalist who went around the world in 72 days!
The excitement of the new arrival sent the expectant "father" into a tiss. Taxi to Leeds to get the night bus down to Bournemouth was booked for 11pm the night before. Car pulls up outside the house, Dad loads cases into car, with the aid of the very nice "taxi" man. Only when wifey comes out and says "don't we know you? Aren't you our son's girlfriends's dad?" So it was, he had come to pick up his daughter as she had missed the last train home, and at that moment said son and girlfriend appear as well as the real taxi! Very funny! Story will be told again and again and again!
