It's A Teeny-Weeny World!

Fans of Little Yellow Duck might be getting a bit worried about MamaDuck, who hasn't posted anything for about three weeks. Don't worry, she's fine, seemingly having a great time as a volunteer worker on a remote Andalucian farm. But she can't get onto the Interweb at the farm: the nearest Interweb cafe is in the village, a one-hour uphill walk away. After a hard day's graft she tends not to fancy a long walk up a mountain. We do have a Google chat about once a week on one of her days off, and this usually happens when she's taken a two-hour bus ride into Malaga or Ganada.

There's a holiday cottage at the farm, and they had some guests a few weeks ago. A Brit couple from Dubai. That's fairly surprising in itself. But when the bloke sees MamaDuck he says

'You're Mrs Keefieboy aintcha?'

Turns out it was one of my drinking buddies from the Alamo. Incredible.

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world.


Give my best to MamaDuck, have a wonderful time learning the lingo, gringo, and I look forward to many interesting posts from AID-YFNOB and LYD upon your return!

I also wondered what'd happened to Mama Duck.........thought she'd waddled off into the wilderness! Nice to know she's having a good time. Hope you enjoy your trip Keef & we won't be surprised if you bump into someone you went to school with!
