Goldydawg circa November ’04 with the awesome Benita & Dermott (Sp?)
So, it’s always the way that when you are somewhere like Scotland, you meet one of the most Australian people of all time! Such was the case when I met Dermott. He & Benita were at the same pub as me when I was watching a game of Rugby in Edinburgh. I liked them instantly & we hung out quite a bit over the proceeding couple of months.
Of course, my Caledonian adventure finished, but they stayed on for a couple of years, but now they are back!
This afternoon I took Benita out to lunch. Of course, I can only speak for myself, but it felt like we just took off from where we left, not like it had been almost 2 years since we saw each other. You have to love friends like that!
Some yummy Vietnamese food, a chinese mango pancake & egg tart for desert, then a nice chat with Dermot on the phone (the crazy bloke was back at work in Queensland 3 days after getting home from a 4 year trip).
I read this today in a blog that I wrote in Scotland, and I will say it again. I am positive that I have far more good quality friends than any one man deserves!
God is good!
