|Douglas Blades (6/6) and Peter Hoffmann (6/2) The Stair|
(Strathpeffer Station Bookshop 31/10/2012)
Just back from a lovely meeting with the charismatic Douglas Blades, a role model for me when I was young-hot chocolate and scones at the former Strathpeffer Railway Station Cafe-absolutely wonderful to meet up with Douglas again, probably for the first time in over thirty years. It was a rushed hour between meetings for Douglas as we went over some old photographs, had a few laughs and exchanged memories of living at The Stair half a century ago-some of which will no doubt appear in future blogs!
ps Can't believe I forgot to ask Douglas the origin of his call sign-NEEEP!
