>I’m very sorry….


you’re 5 minutes too early….

This is the South Street Gallery in Nelson at 4:55pm yesterday.

Not that they’d just closed and there were people rattling around inside, putting stuff away and doing the things you do after you close up for the day.

Nothing like that.



A guy I used to work with toured New Zealand in the 1970s.
Got to the dining room of the motel at 9:02 one morning and the owner said

“I’m sorry, you’re 2 minutes too late”

You have NO IDEA how often I’ve heard that over the last 30 years…
