Fame at last - Belle has become a centrefold!

Belle reveals all to Canal Boat
4th Feb 2011

The March edition of Carnal Boat arrived through the post today and there I was, flipping through its glossy pages when my eyes alighted on the "Me and My Boats" section - always a favourite of mine.

I was brought up short. Wow, that boat's colour scheme is almost exactly the same as Wand'ring Bark. Hang on a minute - it is Wand'ring Bark!



Then I remembered. A few months ago Belle submitted an article about her ensnarement into the world of canal boats and I was asked to provide a selection of photos. I thought no more about it and assumed that it was of no interest to them. Obviously I was wrong.

Now she is famous, a legend in he own lunch box, a published author with he face in a glossy magazine. Maybe they should start a new column called "boaters wives" - that might increase circulation a bit....



So now I can keep a copy of a "glossy magazine" in my bedside table without fear of being misunderstood. Belle a centrefold, who would believe it!

A fascinating Freudian slip, Andy: Carnal Boat!

(meant to add) My copy arrived today - I usually start at the beginning and read through to the end, but I might just make an exception and head for Belle's article first.
