I stopped by a wooden bench up the road today after having bought some beer.
I needed a little rest (as well as a cigarette) and the bag was heavy. Then a quite distinguished looking man walked up to me and said . . . “Do you remember me? We went to the same school together!”. I said if he told me his name it would probably come back to me. He did. and it did. His first name was Marcus. Sure enough I remembered him and we spent 5 minutes or so discussing some teachers and other boys at the Weymouth school. He said he had left in 1962 to which I replied that I’d been expelled in 1961. “I Know, he said!
We talked a little longer, but as he left I called after him that I’d put the meeting up on my Blog later if that was okay. “Yes, I’ve seen it he replied; I’ll have a look later”.
Well, what do you know; a small world it really is! If you’re reading this Marcus, please do post back if you’d like to.
I wonder, do you remember any of these people? I think this was taken in the summer of 1961, not long before I was expelled!
