2 Peter in the Flesh
2 Peter and I , in his parent's backyard. They've lived in Busselton most of their lives and he came home for a brief visit before heading back to Tassie tomorrow. We all got together for a coffee and home-made scones this morning.
For the uneducated or newer readers, 2 Peter is a regular reader and commenter here at Holt Press, having discovered the blog after a Google seasrch of Busselton Blogs one day when he was missing home.
Our relationship has grown over the last year or two and became fully6 established today when we met face to face for the first time.
It was great to meet him and his family which included his sister Val who works off shore on an oil rig.
Carolyn really enjoyed meeting his Mum and Dad Aileen and Brian, she's always gotten along well with older people, and I can see her dropping in for occasional visits even with 2 Peter as a chaperone.
I liked them too but have to say they scored a couple of black marks by virtue of being staunch West Coast supporters, and Slim Dusty fans!!! (There are other blogs where those tastes will be more appreciated!) They won brownie points for being fans of The Chaser though!
2 Peter (so-named because his comments sometimes follow those of my Dad, also called Peter, thus making 2 Peter 2 Peter, which for those who know also has Biblical undertones) dropped back around this afternoon to meet Favourite Daughter, Fashion Boy and Sport Boy, all of whom he's read about often through regular visits to the blog.
As a parting gift, and to cement the growing friendship, I gave him one of my paintings as he was leaving. (For your information Broady it was one that he had earlier admired! and the only comment he had to make on my appearance is that I am taller than he'd thought!)
