Blessing at Babis

Big Jim stood 6'5'' in his socks and Ann just came up to his chest. A great character and lover of all things Kos. As an ex RSM in the British army he had many tales to tell and loved sitting and passing the time with Babis.


Some years ago now when Babis opened his gift shop he had a bit of a do and Father Michael came to bless the occasion. The problem for Jim however was that Father Michael only reached up to his navel ( a slight exageration) and as Jim was stood in line to be blessed the only way Father Michael could reach Jim's head with the bunch of basil was to slap him round the face. Jim said it felt like being slapped with a wet lettuce. He loved it really. Nothing so special as feeling part of the community.
