Hope to hear from u asap. If you find a wicked love close to you and a true love far away, I bet you would wait for the true love to come rather than go for the close wicked love that will end up hurting your feelings. True love knows no bound nor distance nor limit. There is something in me that wants to continue with you and for your information, this is my time on a dating site in my whole life. We should get to know each other and see where life leads us. I am matured enough and I know what I want in life. I mean I am looking for a relationship that would be my last till my dieing days.

I am a one woman man and so I rather get going with you and you alone. Please if you can help me stop coming to this site, I would so much appreciate it. I have got a million words to say to you but not any more on this site.

Looking forward to your swift response. Phone is good but email is better because email has reference while phone does not. When you read messages, you can go back there any time in the future and read it all over again but phone calls allow words to disappear into the air. Please confirm you receive this message so I could send more about me. I am looking for my second half, a woman to spend the remaining seconds of my life with. Please keep in touch on there.

Hello …. Where do I start from? Really, it is disturbing to go on that dating site to see how much people appreciate love, but yet, we have to go the extra mile to get this great status. I have a beautiful home in stockton,CA and seeks a beautiful angel, both inward and outward. Forgive my manners, my name is Ben Johnson, a global contractor.

I own my construction company I deal basically in oil platforms, rig constructions, renovations, over water bridges, interior decors and some art works. Trust me, I can add to your beauty lol. But I am really thinking of hanging the hat this year. Been through many ups and downs in life, yet, I am blessed in some other ways. I mean after getting to the top of success, I have come to realize that we are nothing without a partner. I mean someone who would stand by me no matter the situation. A woman who I can say, she alone has the right to be womanly irritating to me lol.

A witch who would protect me like a lioness would do her cub lol. And I can promise to protect her beyond all vices. A woman who tells me, honey, you can do it, no matter what I want to do. I have really worked hard in the past 12 yrs to get to this height. I have seen faces of women on that site, many of whom have been taken for granted, many of whom are not being reciprocated, but I have come with a good news and a bad news. The good news is, I am here to pick my woman to make happy, my second half, my best friend, my co-pilot, but the bad news is, I have only one woman to do this for lol.

I saw something in your face, something that made my heart pause to read you, something that tickles in the heart, could that be love at first sight? Maybe we could find that out lol. I hope we can now have a direct communication via email cos I do not want to go on a dating site ever again. Your email means a lot to me. It shows how real and ready you are. I have been in NV for only one month as I used to own a house in Coral Springs, FL until something in me tells me its not my end point; 4 something that wants me to relocate.

I sold that house and bought a new one in stockton,CA That was my first time on a dating site and you are the first woman I choose to communicate with. I have now decided to stop visiting the site. I hate to communicate with more than one woman at a time. I rather focus on us and hope this be the last chapter of our love life.

I must tell you this secret, I have a wonderful heart, when I am in a state to choose among many, I let my heart do it and it has never been wrong. There are millions of women on that dating site, I joined and I was so hopeful that despite the number of women, I will certainly go for my own destined woman. My heart never go wrong and when it pushes me to you, I knew I was going the right path. So glad you are one of my kind, we are both open minded and ready to fall in love in the hands of that wonderful partner.

I guess you should truly know who I am. If at my age I do not know what I want and when to say it, then what would I be? When a wise man sees he has probably spent about half of his time in life already, he begins to assess his main goals in life. What could be more important than a happy ending? A man needs to live his life full of joy and happiness, no matter his achievements, he is reduced to nothing if he has no crown to complete him and that is a woman to call his own wife and best friend.

A woman who knows that even while arguing they still need to hold hands. A woman whom I can call a partner in crime lol. A woman whom you can tell anything and everything. How could you think anything can make you happier in life than finding a love that knows no bound. To make you know more about me, I will break this down into segments and it would be like a case study. If you ever had a French kiss, I bet you would be happy to know I have a French background; English is my second language so I have an accent. All my life, I have a story of only one woman to tell. And if I were told I would be on a dating site someday, I will never believe it.

Sometimes in , I lived happily with Mary, a wonderful angel; a wife any man would pray for and two blessed beautiful kids that stood as my shinning glory. But it is so sad to say they are no more! I hate to say this but I lost them in a fatal accident. I watched them lying dead in a pool of blood!!! As much as I adore my family, the inevitable death took them all in one day and life suddenly turned around my table of great joy into a terrible agony.

Such is life! Sometimes we pass through situations we do not have control of and we only do nothing but bear whatever it is. I just want a woman who would be my best friend and everything. You know someone whom we would still love each other more as the days pass by, even when we cant make love anymore and all we could do is play bingo and lots more lol. My favorite colors are Green, Blue and Black and my favorite meal are sea foods, Chinese and Mexican. My woman can have personal time for herself, no stress about that but I would like for us to share each moment of our life together.

No matter how independent my woman is, I would still love to give her every thing and any thing; like taking her shopping every weekend. TV programs are good and I would love to sit close to my woman watching a lovely program. I hope this has giving you an insight about who I am. If there is any thing still missing that you need to know, I am an open book and will honestly answer any question. I hope to hear from you again. Much Smiles! Thank you so much for your condolence!

Life is full of miseries and ironies, the most important thing is our willingness to stand to our challenges and wanting to move on with life once again. As it is said that winners never quit and quitters never win; I know we are winners. I believe we both know that Love is not a destination but a journey and this is a journey that takes two to walk. It is a place called joy and happiness paradise. Sweet Apple, I would also be stupid not to be a man of a woman like you. Really, I just see in your face that I can live with this woman, not the beauty part alone, but the depth 5 of your soul.

As I could remember, as a kid, I was a very cute one lol. One whom many bullies would target, but only to realize there is a tough side of me. I could make a sober person dance; I could affect one with my smile. I grew up having more older friends. Many would confide in me. No matter how dirty you may be, just come to me, and I will give my support. There is no Mr Right until we make him right and there is no Mrs Right until we make her right. A relationship is never about how much at the beginning but how much we could make it grow into.

But sincerely that is the bitter truth! When I lost my wife and kids, I feared love until I recalled that if it touched a heart, it would make the darkness fade into an endless sunny days. Can you prove that right? I have come to realize that, let a man write a better book, let him preach a better sermon, let him sing the best of songs, let him gain wealth beyond dreams, he is reduced to nothing except he has a woman to call, my wife, my best friend and co-pilot.

My mother is very old now and at almost 91, she can still sing. Now she cant wait to have me come visit her in Paris with my second half, and I cant wait to have a happy home too. After my last project here in Johannesburg, SA, I am quitting field works in only three weeks time. Any other job would only require my attention from my home office wherever I go. I want to spend the remaining seconds of my life with my woman. I have a house in the States,I have one in Dubai, but if life turns around and I have no home any more, are you the type that will stand by your man to build one?

Would you smile at your man when he looks tense? The whole world may be mad at me, but if my woman is smiling at me, I would care less. Who says we cant pick rags and turn to riches? Who says we cant design our own paradise together. It is workable just walk by my side, please send me more pictures of your beautiful self.

Every word in it is a dedication to you. Looking forward to your email. Still smiling! LOL Dearest ……. You already make me feel like the luckiest man on earth. My dream is to travel to all the beautiful places and see all the wonders in the world with my woman. Meeting you and hopefully, starting a new life with you is the surest thing. Just be patient, I will be retired in only few weeks. This joy in me since we started writing one another, is the best I have felt so far in many years and I pray it grows and never die. I am at work already. How was your night? I think you should know these as well.

My aunt who is also married to an American took me from mom and brought me up. They have a house in Cairo so we all stayed there as one family. It bothers me at times but I promise mom to learn it in this life time. I am the only child of my parents so I would say mom is the only person I have in my life and hopefully, you. My aunt was a great impact to my life but you know some people come to our life for a season. I think that was what god wanted her to do and that was fulfilled long time ago.

Mom said Aunt and family recently relocated to Australia. I met Mary in Paris but again in the States and we got married. Till the very moment she left this world, she was every thing in my life and I will never forget the good old days. Those days are what I am looking for once again. A woman that will be my life and every thing. I am so happy we are both matured enough to understand what we need in life. Please do not blame my feelings! The truth is, a journey of a thousand years start with a single step.

The best we can do is what we are doing now and once I get to you, we can get married without any regrets.

If you cannot know me now and love me for me, believe me, you will not love me when we are together. Love knows no bound and distance makes us know if truly we are in love or not. Let me make an illustration here perhaps it will help you hit the right point. When you meet a man who is handsome and you too look sexy and you both meet at a cafe or mall, without knowing any thing about each other, your minds jump and most of your decisions would be controlled by what your are seeing, I mean the handsome in him and your sexy look will make most of the decisions for both of you and before you even get to know one another, you are already making love and having sex and before long, you begin to know the person and in the end, he might never be the right man for you and you may not be the right woman for him.

Then, it is already late to make some corrections, but all you can do is to say farewell to each other. That hurts I bet! But if you both meet in writing just like the real dating works, both of you have not seen each other apart from the pictures and if you can express yourselves and fall in love under such condition, then I promise that when you both meet, the main chemistry is already there and such relationship would last forever and ever. This is the reason I joined the dating site; to look for my own woman, my best friend, my own wife, my own love, my sweetheart, my co-pilot, my angel, my all and every thing, someone that will love me for me no matter the condition and she is sure to get more of equal love.

I am so happy my heart is in for you and wants you for the rest of my days. I urge you not to lie to yourself as well. You had joined the dating site as a matured woman knowing fully well that a serious relationship has to be built first through writing and then you meet for the main chemistry. I want to live a proper life with my woman. I think we should really take this to another level. Be warned I have been told I have an unsorted accent, but sexy lol.

You can always kiss me on What a heart taking message to wake up to. You simply grabed me by the head and I felt your kiss lol. I will find time to call you today. You brought tears of joy to my eyes, I was totally moved by your message. Thank you for being you …….! My answer is NO! We are created for each other. No matter who we are, no matter how stone hearted we may be, every human being knows what they feel immediately they see the opposite sex, be it in the picture or physically. If you feel just likeness for someone, you know.

If you feel like having sex with someone, you know. If you feel you want someone to be yours forever, you also know. All these feelings are our bodies telling us what they want. But instead of most people giving their bodies and spirit what they want, they tend to give them bad food, I mean bad partners. And you know, the bodies will reject them either immediately or someday.

Many people spend so much time thinking they can create love. That is impossible but only a waste of time. Every relationship that takes long before the partners fall in love will have a happy end. But nah, most love life people spend time building often end in tragedy. To be candid, which love are we building? A duplex or a mansion or a small room? Very funny! Or has any one ever seen love physically?

We all need to start seeing the other side of the coin because it is the side facing down, only powerful minds can see it. Listening to my body, soul, mind, heart and spirit, it is you I want. Not just for a period but for ever and ever. Back into our pasts, we gave in all but still, look at where we are today. Still on the same road like someone in a circular path, always returning to the same point; looking for our second half.

Why not hold hands and just walk straight. And to be candid, there are three major attributes of true love, of every good relationship that lasts forever. Those attributes are what we need to put into great consideration. They are understanding, tolerance and endurance. Every wonderful partners that live together until their dieing days must have passed through a lot, I mean, they must have been through some really hard time.

But because they understand themselves, tolerate one another and endure whatever situation they find themselves, their life seems magical as if they have special bond holding them together. And every relationship that ever crashed surely lack those attributes either from one of the partners or both of them. As far as we are not the bad type, god surely prepare us for a better future, a better place and a better life. Love is never created or controlled by mankind but by god himself. If we earn the whole world, gather all those treasures on this planet combined with the ones in all other planets and there is no love in our life, certainly we got nothing.

Maximus died for he loved his wife, his children and his country. Thank you for so much care. Imagination of them still living in the house almost got me crazy. But I thank god I have overcome my fears, I am alive, full awaken again. Thank you for coming into my life at the very right time. I must say the days ahead would be very long ones as we are closing to the end of this big project. I could notice the joy of relief upfront on the faces of my men.

Even the locals are beginning to admit that they will surely miss me. They say I have become more of a family lol.

I love all my men, be it professionals, acquired expatriate, and locals. While working I try to build a personal relationship with each and every one even though I have over men on this location. Basically, all I do each business day is supervise the workers, monitor the jobs and make corrections and I have been doing this for more than one year. We are like a large family and every one is always happy. My world, we would have so much to plan as soon as we get together. My dream has always been to travel to all the beautiful places in the world with my woman and with you, that dream will come true.

And you will love it for I find humor in almost every thing no matter the situation. I can turn tears into endless laughter and bring smile to a sad face. I am gifted in making people happy. I want a woman to love and to love me now and forever. In , same year I moved to FL, I worked at the oil rig of Dubai and after the project, I had the opportunity to own a home in the city resulting from the cheap sale from the first owner who intends to relocate to India where he came from. I paid only half of the money while the remaining half is to be paid to the Government.

The home would be mine when all the debt on it is cleared and I can enjoy whatever it brings from rental. My mother would really love to meet you …….. Please take good care of yourself and remember Ben cares. Each time I think about you, a star falls from the sky; so if you look outside your window today and see no star, its all your fault for you made me think about you too much. Now I have your picture in my wallet, another one on my bed, another one in the bathroom and another one in my heart.

I want you around me every where and any where.

Destiny, meeting never happen people lost love.

Please take it easy with work and take good care of yourself. Yours Forever, Ben. Angel …. How are you today? To be honest with you, my night was full of the thought about our life to 9 begin. So please tell me, who are you? A woman being a goddess? Or a goddess pretending to be a woman? Whichever you are, you are doing something special to me lol. I mean after all these years, I would have thought I might not have the possibilities again of having my dream woman, my partner, my best friend and co-pilot.

The inevitable truth is, if it is meant to be, our hearts will find each other regardless of the distance apart. And if our hearts melt together so will our bodies and souls. Then every word and every touch will fuel our passion flame. I will be yours, you will be mine, and we will be one, forever and ever.

Absolutely I have come to know that we spend most of our life seeking for the secondary needs, while our primary needs are left unseen. We have worked so hard and attained some wealth right? But for what purpose? To be realistic, except if you just want to be known as a rich person, wealth means nothing if you have no best friend to share it with. All the millions are useless indeed.

How much do we need to eat? How much do we need for shelter? How much do we need for daily fun? Excess and excess leads us to vanity. But for few of us who value the simplicity, we sure would do well in finding happiness. As I always say, money can buy a good bed, but never will money buy sleep; It can buy the best diamond watch, but can never buy time; it can buy piles of books, but cant buy knowledge; it can buy food, but not satisfaction; MONEY can buy sex, but can NEVER buy love.

That is why I refuse to follow the crowd. So as my own man, I would give up all that can be bought for that which cant be bought. I want true joy and happiness. I want my woman to have power over my moods. I am on the South Dale in the coast of SA. Haven to wake up every morning by 6am to catch up my chopper down here. Working from then till late at night, yet being able to be distracted by this woman. I have over labors here, both skilled and locals, yet all could notice a new glow on my face LOL.

He found his woman on the net and to be sincere, he inspired me. I am ready to travel any where and live any where in the world so far that would please my woman. So the best of men would accept what they feel without questions, because truly, Love and death cant be escaped, no one can tell when, how, or where.

It is never too early or too late. What is more important to one is the love we share, the memories we have or the feelings within. Give love a chance to swallow you up. If you are as open minded and simple as me, I can promise you that the sky would be the beginning. Could you tell me your ideology about true love and life? Looking forward to your sweet self. You must wonder why I call you sunshine. I feel like giving a hug lol. Just as the sun lights up the earth, you light up my life.

The only one I have met, with a heart so bright. Just seems like yesterday, you came around my way, you changed my whole scene right away, with your outstanding personalty. The only reason this was possible is because you must have portrayed yourself well and you have been yourself. That is absolutely what no one can ever be. Like I said, it takes a life time to try knowing the reason why you feel the way you do with some people. The answers are never there. Trust me, the day relationships starts falling is the day people can figure out the exact reason they have loved each other.

Life is boring if perfect. Life is worse when there is nothing to change about anything. The balance in life is based on the facts that, there must be thieves and criminals for the police to remain employed. The medical practitioners would run out of business if we are all hale and hearty. If everyone are vegetarians, Oh my!

Guess how many people would not earn a living. White gained from black, blacks earn from white. If everyone is rich, wealth would be meaningless. Who would do the laundry? Who would drive the car? The essence for this short word is that, if you can read the meaning in this, you are my woman for sure. The moral of the speech is that, we were all created for each other.

There is much fun in helping. We can all be better if we accept the fact that we cant live without each other. The world would be a better place if we can start accepting things we cant change. Siting here thinking about you, brings out a part of me that loves everything lol. I have a proposal for you this wonderful day. Because I know you at least care about me, after all you wake up to check on my email and know if I am still alive lol.

That is something, so I want your help today. There is this woman whom I just met, and I could be scared about how she has gotten my attention, but I would be stupid to submit to fears. I noticed that she already has a place that can not be replaced in my heart. Who could ever think of hurting such a woman who only wants happiness? I want you to help me find her and tell her, I am not known for fears.

I know a journey of a thousand years start with a single step. A man who wants to fly must at least learn to stand on his feet! Tell her if she is willing, I would love to take her hands. I am a man who gives nothing but everything. Once I have her hand, I can promise her forever. Tell her I know this is not going to be a kid walk. Tell her I know there are times we would argue in future. But tell her I would teach her to know that even while we argue we would still be holding hands for there are many sides to a coin.

Tell her life is short, but we can make paradise out of it. Tell her her worries have become mine, because I do not really know how she has done it. Tell her, that coming across her was by chance, communicating with her was by choice, but then falling in love with her is beyond my control. You know where to find her my dear, just go to your dressing mirror and you would find her staring back at you lol.

Yes, the interior decorations will be completed this week and then we can proceed to fixing of the electrical pipes and covering of the pipes. All those will take only six days once we are through with the interior decoration and I am getting paid the same day. I have invested all I 11 had in this project but the good news is, once I am done, I will be three times richer than I was lol. I will explain more to you when I call today. I keep thinking of how much I need to be home with you, how much I want us to be together and how much I want to be with you every where and any where.

Darling, I will be kissing you every morning and make passionate love to you in bed and maybe in the shower too; I hope these are things you would like. Our afternoons and evenings would be filled with so much fun, laughter, smiles, dance, talk, walk, relax, kiss, hug, and many more. Our nights would be you on me and me on you, even when we sleep, we would still be holding hands. And I love my tongue for it tickles, I will start from your head and slip gently down and in to every single part of your body and you could almost loose your breath.

Your loud scream would be a trigger and makes me more perfect. My love, I am here fully emotional and just want to be with you. I am sunk in love, crazy about you honey. I am at work but I can hardly leave the office cos I am waiting to hear from you every second of every minute of every hour. I tell her I'm developing a theory that while most villages have one big story, this particular village seems to attract strange happenings at an abnormal rate.

Someone had come into the house and said to my mother: 'Well, I've just seen something I've never seen before, someone walking across the mountain in the dead of night The figure had been walking near Brynambor, a remote sheep farm owned by John Williams.

Browse Sections

The next day, some nearby farmers went to check on John after being told he'd failed to answer his door. They found him in the bedroom. He'd been shot five times with his own gun. The killer was soon discovered to be a year-old English drifter called Anthony Gambrell, who was now on the loose and thought to be hiding in the hills. It sent shockwaves through the village. John Williams was well-loved; the treasurer of Soar-y-Mynydd chapel, he had been described as "the happiest man in Wales".

The killer in the hills had been terrorising the village for years. Nobody knows why he first came, but he'd developed something of an obsession with Llanddewi-Brefi. He found occasional shepherding work and was known to sometimes sleep rough up the mountain. Six years before the murder, he'd broken into John Williams' home and stolen a gun. Later, he'd taken an elderly couple hostage with a sickle. For centuries, British folklore warned petrified children of symbolic black dogs; evil and malevolent forces in the hills that strike fear into small communities.

Now, Llanddewi-Brefi was living a nightmare made real. The police feared he would could kill again, or at least take hostages. Villagers were told to lock their doors, check on their neighbours regularly and not to go out at night. They were given a secret code to use if in danger, and police called remote farms every half hour to check on them. The fear was too much for many, and 12 farmers moved away during the hunt. The police eventually traced Gambrell: he'd fled to Hampshire.

He was tried and sentenced to 30 years in prison at Lampeter court, nine miles from Llanddewi-Brefi. A crowd of villagers gathered outside the court to express their anger at him as he was bundled into a van. Last year a Welsh documentary series called Y Detectif revisited the murder. It discovered that Gambrell still sends letters to some of the residents of the village from his prison cell in Durham.

Who knows if he'll come back? Mr Ebenezer is sitting on the sofa in his conservatory, wearing a purple cotton jumper and beige trousers, peering through his rounded rectangular spectacles at the Cambrian News while Sky News blares in the background. He has a Daily Mail next to him too, which he buys every day so he can "stay aware of what the enemy is up to".

He speaks with a theatrical and earthy mid-Wales accent — it has a soft lilt and sing-song feel that makes you want to tap a beat out on your knees. Through the conservatory door is the dining room, where Mr Ebenezer's silver laptop sits closed, but ready at any point to be opened. Since he's been a journalist and celebrated local author. Forty years ago, at around 11AM on a cold March morning, he was one of the first reporters on the scene to the bust of Operation Julie, wandering through the village as neighbours stood on the doorsteps observing the chaos, declaring they knew something was up all along.

He tells me nobody has a bad word to say about the LSD guys around here: Smiles, especially, was bit of a local hero. Nothing's changed round here at all! When I ask him if he thinks there might be some acid buried somewhere in the village he grins mischievously. They keep it going. I do think there must be stuff left, though, no doubt. Some say it might be buried in the quarry, but I think Smiles is behind that rumour. He was a very naughty boy. I ask Mr Ebenezer whether he knew of any other strange happenings in Llanddewi-Brefi, and his eyes light up as he begins talking about a mysterious man who appeared towards the end of the 60s, a decade before the LSD.

Bloody mad, but highly intelligent. A fugitive from The Krays apparently, and he had a scar from ear to ear. The man in question was David Litvinoff, an enigmatic and mercurial character in 50s and 60s London with as many connections to the worlds of rock and roll and fine art as he had to the aristocracy and the criminal underworld of The Krays. The English jazz and blues singer George Melly described Litvinoff as such: "The fastest talker I ever met, full of outrageous stories, at least half of which turned out to be true, a dandy of squalor, a face either beautiful or ugly, I could never decide which, but certainly percent Jewish, a self-propelled catalyst who didn't mind getting hurt as long as he made something happen, a sacred monster, first class.

One night in , Litvinoff had a disagreement with one of his gangster associates and was badly beaten up. Shortly after that he vanished. When he re-appeared some months later it was in the Llanddewi-Brefi village shop, begging the shopkeeper to let him take some provisions on spec because he hadn't sorted himself any cash yet.

He had moved into a small whitewashed cottage with a slate roof on the edge of the village, called Cefn Bedd which translates as Behind the Grave. Soon, Litvinoff's famous friends were arriving from London to visit him in this little village that he called his "Celticlimboland", where "nothing is the norm and quite rightly so".

One time Litvinoff rounded up a group of excited older women in the post office after telling them he had Cliff Richard in the car outside, only for them to shrug with disappointment when it was actually a bewildered Keith Richards.

Lost on Earth or Fateful Love

Notorious parties would take place at his home, a mixture of London friends and any young locals who were brave enough. When Mr Ebenezer visited Litvinoff at his cottage one afternoon, he noticed an invitation on the side to Jimi Hendrix's funeral in Seattle. There was a boiled sweet attached to it: the message inside said the sweet was laced with LSD and instructed anyone who couldn't attend the funeral to take it on the same day.

In a series of events that led to Litvinoff leaving the village for good, he offered the sweet to a local policeman who was doing the rounds one afternoon. He spent the rest of the day splayed across Litvinoff's sofa, hallucinating and shouting nonsense down his walkie talkie. In the 60s and 70s, there was this growing notion of the rural idyll as an escape from a world that seemed to be spiralling repeatedly into war and chaos. Many had nostalgic conceptions of the countryside as a place straight from 16th century Dutch landscape paintings; where life is changeless and lived at a slow pace.

There was a particularly English fantasy of the countryside as a more authentic, civilised and fulfilling world than the dirty, fast-moving and industrial reality of city life. It's something that is returning again now, as people recoil from the hyper-connectedness of metropolitan existence and potential nuclear war, and start to dream again of absolute isolation via AirBnB river boats and huts in the mountains.

But, as observed by the sociologist Howard Newby, those Dutch landscape paintings were never portrayals of rural reality: they were utopian dreams of pastoral beauty created in adherence to a set of rules about what made a painting picturesque. And when Litvinoff — and many of the hippies and good lifers that would follow him — moved out to places like Llanddewi-Brefi, they often found that life was not perfect and simple, and that the countryside was an unrelenting place that came with its own unique demons. He was someone that needed people around him. Ultimately, Llanddewi-Brefi drove him mad.

Smiles never set out to find Llanddewi-Brefi back in July of , but he did anyway. He, his girlfriend and her daughter had been driving around various villages in Wales looking for For Sale signs. When all hope was lost they chanced upon Llanddewi-Brefi. Y Glyn cottage wasn't for sale, but it was obvious nobody lived there. The man next door owned it. Smiles was one of the first hippies the villagers had seen up close. Others had passed through, but Smiles' cottage was right on the main street. He frequented the pub often, joined the darts team and strolled around in bell bottoms and beads, with glitter on his face, henna dyed-hair and daubed eye shadow.

He had long dark hair and a great big beard. At first, a few of the local lads wanted to kick his head in. Other villagers speculated about what business he was in; most assumed it was either pornography or bank robbery. But through a mixture of kindness and ridiculousness, he soon charmed a village, who, by this point, had started to develop an eccentric worldview — or at least an increased openness to things happening around them that are not all that normal.

His cottage was a two-up, two-down, and those who had the surreal pleasure of visiting spoke of a huge Parvati the Hindu goddess of fertility, love and devotion hand-painted in the living room, and a big blue Shiv Shankar on the back wall. All the skirting boards had been painted to look like grass and snails. In one of the bedrooms upstairs, there was a paper mache of Jimi Hendrix stepping out of the wall, his hair made of copper wire.

The kid's bedroom had been turned into a paper mache cave, coloured light brown with a red and yellow streak, and decorated with reflective baubles. He'd removed the ceilings in both and converted them into a skylight, so they could all fall asleep beneath the stars. During his time in the village, Smiles would become involved with the LSD network and go from being a reasonably low-level drug dealer to shifting , thousand tabs of acid per week, making him one of the biggest names in the operation.

When the undercover coppers arrived in Llanddewi-Brefi disguised as wandering hippies, Smiles was the target. Stephen Bentley was one of the undercover detectives. He wrote a book about his experiences, Undercover: Operation Julie — The Inside Story , and is responsible for this summer's claims that there is still a stash buried. He tells me over Skype that he became tremendously close to Smiles over the two years he spent undercover, and came within an inch of revealing everything to him the weekend before the bust.

Smiles swears from the moment he met Bentley he knew he was a copper, but it was a case of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. Then, at 5AM on the 26th of March, , Smiles awoke to the sound of his door being kicked it, and it was all over. Over the years, Smiles hasn't featured in any of the books or TV documentaries about Operation Julie , so I assumed he didn't want to speak about those years any more.
