Small Talk #88


Baba liked Paxos so much he wanted to buy somewhere. Trouble was, he was only interested in dilapidated wrecks.

"I fancy a project", he said "I could stay at Steve's and do building work, plastering, electrics, plumbing etcetera on it during the winter..."

"And what about your work?", said Granny.

"Hadn't thought about that!", replied Baba.

But he kept taking down phone numbers.

He asked neighbour Les about it.

"Even total wrecks cost €100K upwards, and there's frustrating bureaucracy that'll cost you lots extra", said Les.

"Maybe we'll stick with Salcombe!" sighed Baba.

'Where's Salcombe, Baba?... can I come too?'
