Subject: RE: BS: Six Degrees Of Separation
My eldest daughter was across the pond visiting friends in Edinburgh for awhile. One morning she nipped out to get a few groceries and when she was coming out of the shop, met her elementary school friend, a former next door neighbour, from the west coast of Canada, coming in.

Recently, we considered buying a very light weight pop-up camper for our truck, from a small manufacturer in California. I had spoken to the salesman in the US and said I would really like to have a look at one of the units in the flesh, before making up my mind. He said that they had sold a couple of units to Canadians and as luck would have it, one recently to someone, who also lived in Victoria. The salesman said he would put him in contact with me and maybe we could work out a viewing.

A few days later I recieved a phone call from the gentleman and I explained that we actually lived some distance out of Victoria. Turns out so did he...five houses down the road from us.
