What a small World...

Checked a guest in to our motel today and immediately noticed his Lancashire accent.
Where you from originally I asked.
Blackpool born and bred he said and we then conversed about Pool. He's been a Pool fan all his life and, like me, moved to Oz nearly 20 years ago. He's 8 years older than me (born in 1955) and although born on the Grange Park estate, he showed a level of intelligence to be admitted to grammar school, eventually trained as a doctor and emigrated as a GP.
It was the next bit of conversation that gob-smacked me. He told me his best mate at 18 got killed at Bloomers.....

Kevin Olsen!

He described the time as completely unreal as they had grown up across the road from each other and Kevin being murdered still seemed surreal to him now at 61....

Small World eh?

(His name is David but that's all I can say)

Then your brother-in-law would know someone by the name of David who was also his mate....
