Its the thought that counts.

There I was, walking along the road on my way back from the village shop. We were out of toilet paper, so I had been out to buy a copy of the Daily Mail. When out of the blue, one of those American tourists folk (who are much favoured by those hire boat businesses) stopped me.

Apparently it seems he was looking for 'Hire Boats 'R' Us'  He asked me 'hey buddy, what is the quickest way to the to the Hire Boats 'R' Us marina? So I put on one of my extra thoughtful looks for a few moments.  (the look of extra thoughtful is something I have perfected over time) So then I enquired 'are you walking or driving?' to which he replied. 'I’m driving.' Looking extra thoughtful again but just for a moment, I said 'that buddy, is without a doubt the quickest way!' and set off strolling back to the boat. I do enjoy being able to help.  

Now I have the urge to whistle a bit of Mahalia Jackson: 'If I can show somebody, how they're travelling wrong, then my living shall not be in vain.'

IWA Top Tip: When using a visitor mooring, a tuba placed on your boat roof will keep the mooring spaces on either side vacant for your IWA friends.
