Whilst sitting having a wine - or nearly a bottle this afternoon and BBQ'ing ( in the middle of France I must say ) today , a family walked past me and asked where we were from ; and I said Sunderland / Newcastle area , I asked why and they said their son recognised my car - talking about my private plate !

I asked where they lived , it just so happened that there were from Catterick - North Yorkshire , where we usually go caravanning to our CL sites at Leyburn , and normally pop into Catterick to do a bit local shopping where they live !!
That's what happens when you have a private plate !!! :P
Had my plate for 24 years now and well known !!

I went to Switzerland for a meeting with a senior medic from one of the big pharma companies on a Monday. Walking down Oxford St two days later I bumped into him on the pavement...

Bumped into a pupil in Paris once.
Ruined the break.

Some years ago my wife went into the toilets in a site in France and met the lady who lives opposite us. We knew they were in France but had not realised they were using that site for an overnight stop before heading further South.

On the path back up from Kynance Cove, we bumped into our window cleaner. Twelve months later, we were sat in an Auberge in the Dordogne, and who walked in and sat at the next table, same guy but with different lady. Difficult or what. :blush:

Gives rise to the old toast "heres to wives and girlfriends, and may they never meet".
