Amalfi/Basel - Do You Know What????

It WAS Bryan Ferry!!! The man who drove us to Naples Airport this morning at 5:30 a.m. confirmed it. I asked him if he has every driven any celebrities, and he said no..."but my manager has." When I pressed a bit further, I found out that the manager had driven Bryan Ferry from our hotel to his private jet two days ago. That means that Mrs. TBF definitely saw Bryan Ferry lying on the chaise lounge next to mine. I'm saying that that counts as an official brush with celebrity.
We are now back in Basel. Everything went well until we were standing at the luggage carrousel at Basel Airport. Some idiot decided to hit the red emergency stop button for absolutely no reason whatsoever after only about four suitcases had come out. I was standing right in front of the button, and I saw him do it. Of course, I was listening to my iPod Shuffle at a fairly loud volume when he did it which caused me to probably yell out "...WHAT THE HECK DID YOU DO THAT FOR?!?!?!" Then, it took the competent Swiss airport authorities a good 45 minutes to get the thing turned back on. But, we're home now, and all is well with the world. I'll post more pictures from our trip soon.

It's too bad you couldn't have surprised Mrs. TBF and asked him to come over and sing "More Than This" or some other Roxy Music song for her...

You'll need to remember this if you ever play the 'tenuous link with celebrity game' - the more tenuous the link then the more chance you have of winning. F
