@benpobjie @SydneyTom_ It’s be a wild ride. I mean just this one sentence has so much hidden meaning…

via TweetDeck in reply to benpobjie

@benpobjie @SydneyTom_ Her world was constant adventure. In India, her houseboat sank, so a local prince invited her to live in his palace.

@SydneyTom_ @benpobjie I remember her compound was basically a converted stable yard. Christ knows, see previous “bad influence” etc.

@SydneyTom_ @benpobjie First met her at Gray St. Came in shouting “David I’ve just been pulled over for speeding! Roll your mother a joint!”

via TweetDeck in reply to SydneyTom_

@SydneyTom_ @benpobjie Your mother was a bad influence, Tom. But I think you know that already.

via TweetDeck in reply to SydneyTom_

@SydneyTom_ @benpobjie I don’t think I ever managed to get inside for 10 seconds before she’d rolled me a joint and handed me a glass.

via TweetDeck in reply to SydneyTom_

@SydneyTom_ @benpobjie Now I’m remembering when after a break-up I spent a few months in Andy’s compound smoking dope and drinking wine.
