Today I met Jack

He was a very eloquent young man. He came up to me, introduced himself as Jack and asked my name. We had a wee laugh that I am Gill. Jack and Gill.
He then proceeded to tell me that he has autism which makes him ask lots of questions and am I allergic to anything?!
I told him I’m not ( actually didn’t really want to engage in that one).
Neil told Jack that they have met before - fishing. (Neil reckons it was 3 or 4 years ago ). Jack looked at Neil for a moment before saying “Highlands- Hebrides- Barra”. He was spot on. Clearly he has an incredible memory for details.
