"Hi Lorraine, how are you, dear?" --that was the boat greeting, you :)

Now coming to the post, Good one, Nice photo...it makes me want to go to my home in Kerala...

I am very bored, so let me tell a past story...I was in school, 8th grade when they took us on en excursion to Cochin and we went to see a ship from the inside...It was a German ship...we all got in..and as usual i went on with my exploration all myself..landed up in a cabin where a man was drinking all alone...

Oh my! the way I ran back...heart in my mouth and it was a huge ship...he followed me for some time...a ton size of a man...and still remember the way I jumped out of the ship breathless...and I had hell of a session from the sister for going separate from the batch! :)

but no use..I always used to roam around alone! :)

wishes,
devika

Lorraine said...

You were and still are, a gutsy girl dear Dev...scary experience, poor you, hope this didn't just bring that nasty experience, 'cause that would be awful x

Devika said...

Oh i have had a few "good" nasty ones than this, Lorraine...Except once when it was real bad, God was with me most of the time...Even with the bad one it was real eye opener, especially since my parents were by my side :)

(bad because i lost myself for over about 1.5 years)

but, i should say..my guts comes as a gift from my father, and my mother brings an element of submissiveness...so finally I am a "not this way, not that way" kind :)
