"Extraordinary Stories from an Ordinary Guy"
This is a blog I have followed off and on for some time.
http://www.lifewithldub.blogspot.com/

I first discovered this blog when someone alerted me to a great story on the history of Oyster Pond.
http://lifewithldub.blogspot.com/2011/09/oyster-pond-yacht-club-past-memories_30.html

Since then I have enjoyed reading this writer's stories about St. Maarten as well as other stories.
Recently this "ordinary guy" was on the island and contacted me because he wanted to meet the gardener and visit Cannegie Liquor Store. He had read the story about the gardener being in business for 50 years and thought this would be an interesting story for his blog.
Unfortunately he never caught the gardener in the store. One might guess that the gardener was otherwise occupied..maybe in his garden?

But the "ordinary guy"  wrote another "extraordinary" story about his visit to the store. He talked to a long time employee of ours and also to our granddaughter.
Take a look. You will enjoy reading this.

I love this... It's such a nice write up on Diederick and the store... Hopefully on the next visit of the "ordinary guy" we can all meet.

Dear Barbara, Thank you so much for the nice story and comments about my recent posting. I too hope that we can meet next year. Our trip is scheduled for late April to mid-May. I will contact you a few weeks ahead of time to set up a meeting. My wife, Carol, and I would love to see your garden. Here's hoping we all stay healthy until we return again. Larry
