THE DRIFTING TRAILER MAN


IT ALL BEGAN with my ten year old daughter. Although she’s well disciplined, of late she’d been coming home later than usual from school, humming Blue Danube.

Donna had acquired a rather disquieting habit of frequenting a big, Sprite Caravan which had for the last two months found a home on the park green.

She promptly replied: “Ballerina.” That was contrary to what I had always thought she wanted to be: a dentist.
