Small World

Several years ago, our church in Niantic had an exchange pastor from England. Turns out he was from Ulverston. So I sent a note off to him. Rev. David and Pauline Robinson rang us up and invited us over - they live about 2 blocks from us. We went over after supper one evening "for a cuppa." They were quite fun, wanted information on the folks back in America, and have many interests. Ulverston is their retirement home. They knew about our house in Bugle Court and gave us some history on it. We enjoyed them and look forward to seeing more of them.

Another "trailing spouse," Pat, is from Rhode Island. She worked for the Catholic Diocese there, and was active in the RI Council of Churches. There she knew a Methodist minister, named Bob Moore. He is a former pastor for Niantic Community Church. So many small world coincidences.
