The Mermaid and the Sock of Dave
This is a very strange tale.
In fact it is a very fishy tale.
As with all my stories and poems I saw this all happen in my mind so just wrote about what I was seeing and hearing.
Many years after writing this I was working in a town called Girvan in Scotland for the very first time.
Oh boy! It was the place I had seen in my story. There was the house from the story, there was the clock tower,
there was the sea wall just as I had seen it. Even the people I met reminded me of those in my story.
This may be a long read but I guarantee that it will make you laugh.
I have always envisaged this made into a film.
I even began writing the script.
