Ah, the Sixties…

It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer of 1960 and Fred had a date with Sue. He arrived at her house and rang the bell.

‘Oh, come on in!’ Sue’s mother said as she welcomed Fred in. ‘Have a seat in the living room. Would you like something to drink? Lemonade? Tea?’

‘Tea, please,’ Fred said. Mum brought the tea..

‘So, what are you and Sue planning to do tonight?’ she asked.

‘Oh, probably catch a movie, and then maybe grab a bite to eat at the Wimpy Bar, maybe take a walk on the beach…’

‘Sue likes to screw, you know,’ Mum informed him.

‘Really?’ Fred replied; eyebrows rose.

‘Oh yes,’ the mother continued. ‘When she goes out with her friends, that’s all they do!’

‘Is that so?’ asked Fred, incredulous. ‘Yes,’ said the mother. ‘As a matter of fact, she’d screw all night if we let her!’

‘Well, thanks for the tip!’ Fred said as he began thinking about alternative plans for the evening.

A moment later, Sue came down the stairs looking pretty as a picture wearing a pink blouse and a hoop skirt, and with her hair tied back in a bouncy ponytail. She greeted Fred.

‘Have fun, kids!’ the mother said as they left.

Half an hour later, a completely dishevelled Sue burst into the house and slammed the front door behind her.

‘The Twist, Mum!’ she angrily yelled to her mother in the kitchen.

‘The bloody dance is called the Twist!

“Hello Boy !” greeted me as the door opened and my hand is squeezed to the point of pain.

This is the usual greeting I receive when visiting Martyn Farr at FarrWorld, the home of one of cave diving’s best known and experienced proponents.

It seems like a long time since I first met Martyn, over 3 years now, but he doesn’t really change, still vertically challenged, still as fit as the proverbial butchers dog and still a fascinating and bewitching orator. I first attended his Cavern Course and then progressed through Intro Cave and Full Cave until I was a qualified cave diver… what a scary thought that was.
