Ice breaker

Ice breaker

Sunday 18th May 2014

I was sitting on a bench opposite Northaw Church this afternoon, reading my book and waiting for the ceremony to finish, when a voice said "my dad had one of those". I've heard that comment so many times and this time it came from an elderly gentleman who sat beside me and proceeded to recall his motoring exploits over the last 60 years. It turned out he is 93 years old and has driven all over Europe. We had a wonderful chat as we basked in the sunshine and the time flew by.

Some say owning a dog is an ice-breaker and encourages people to talk to you, but I think owning a vintage car is even better.
