You have to read this one!

Pat just sent me this link. The post has been written by a childhood friend and it describes an awfully funny incident.

It just upholds everything I say about boys -- with them food is always high on the list of priorities, especially when they are seventeen and stupid.

I don't know why I have never mentioned this before -- but Pat's blog is an excellent place to keep track of the best non-classical concerts in Calcutta.

G'day Sue,

Thanks for visiting the post and commenting. As a good friend of Patrick's, you're ``adopted'' as a good friend of mine too.

Did the big fella ever tell you that another dramatic highway adventure of ours, as college-age learner drivers, is documented in a 3000-word essay published in a 2007 Anthology of Anglo-Indian World Writing?

He and I have had some classic adventures over the years - and we still stay in touch. Saw him in October - at the DI!

Am adding you to my blogroll lest I lose sight of your blog.

From one proud Calcuttan to another ...

Keep smiling

What clever boys! They knew their priorities very clearly.

Sue - I followed your link... you won't believe this but my grandparents fiat rolled down a slope in the himalayas and into the ganges :)).

Hi Sue,

If you've been reading the colour Sunday magazine with the Telegraph, you'll notice a weekly picture and caption by me - I think it's near or on the comics page.

A lot of my Calcutta shots have also been featured on my blog since my ver brief trip there last October.

Do keep in touch

Dave -- Sure, any friend of Pat is a friend of mine. I haven't heard of this other adventure, is there an online version somewhere?

Dipali -- I think you mean greedy, not clever. Like The Bhablet. He will not let go of his food no matter what else he needs to clutch.

Sqiggle's Mom -- Gosh! Did they get anything usable back?

Dave again -- Ok, knowing that certainly adds interest to those photos. I'll keep an eye out for them now.

Hello everybody - Sue, Dave et al! Despite the bitterness I've expressed in a recent post about "friends", it's always good to know that real friends abound! Thanks for being there you guys, even if we don't see each other as much as I would love to.

Dear Sue and Patrick,

There is nothing better than real friends. That's why we've been buddies all our lives.

Sue, there isn't an online version of that yarn as far as I know, but I'll see if I can rustle up an original MSWord version ....

Gimme a week or so
