Selling CDs at his concerts, for example, or when I've been driving him around the country, it's reasonable to suppose I may have met some of Lloyd's fans without them knowing who I was. Accordingly, one of the intriguing aspects of the world wide web (and, in particular, sites like Twitter) is that, I've become 're-acquainted' with people with whom I may already have met - but only as a result of the internet have we started to engaged in a dialogue.
One such person is Melanie. However, although she is a massive fan of Lloyd (she saw him Paris earlier this year, is going to see him there again in a couple of weeks - and, as if that wasn't enough, is seeing him again in Exeter at the end of the month) we didn't actually meet (for the first time, at any rate) at a concert - but as passing acquaintances who happened to live and work in the same area. In the meantime, she has moved abroad and is studying at The Open University. Going on from that - and I'm not quite sure how she stumbled across it, the photographs in this Rambling blog remind her of her time in this area.
At the moment, she is back here for a few days. So I met up with Melanie (shown below), her sister-in-law, two nephews, and two dogs for a stroll on her beloved hill. I'm calling it my first tweetmeet - and I don't want to hear any rude remarks about edible animal dangly bits. BTW, on very clear days, from where we're standing, it's possible to see London in one direction and The English Channel in the other.
