It's a short notice trip and not firmly set in stone, but I plan to be in the UK next week, with time off starting Friday afternoon and not heading back here until Tuesday morning. Anyone up for a mini get-together of some kind?
07/31/2009 12:31:37 PM · #2
Cant promise I will definitely be around but I will give it a try once you know where n when you will be available...

I might be able to manage something - I shall check my diary.

Actually I would be better just asking my wife . .

:- )

Where abouts will you be - London ?
07/31/2009 02:12:44 PM · #4
I figured I'd head down to London (I think it's "down to") on Friday. Which reminds me, I need to check on a place to stay....

Looking to get together with folks on Saturday if at all possible?

Deb - buy me a ticket from the States and I will be there! Just kidding! You have fun in London!

We should be off work on the Monday before you go back, we are planning a trip to Kew Gardens. I think the actual weekend will be a non-starter for us.

Hi Deb
Where are you visiting , I know you mentioned going up to London but does that mean you will be visiting other places as well?
07/31/2009 04:41:00 PM · #9
For work stuff, I'll be at RAF Lakenheath. After that, I'm limited to where I can get to by train or other public transport, as I have no desire to drive on the wrong side of the road. :-)

I lived near Ispwich in the late 70's/early 80's and the tankbusters from Mildenhall and Lakenheath used to use our tractors for target practice. They would fly over us, real low, wave and then do another run at us.

Oops...

I accidently clicked on the window while I was scrolling down, I got the popup on my computer, but without even looking at it I hit "OK" b/c I am so used to this PC having popups come up that I have to acknowledge.

I would come to England to apologize to you in person, but Deb won't buy me a ticket!

Maybe if you bribe me with a ticket to London, I will pull my strings with the SC to have them keep you around! :P

I did find it funny though - When they implemented the new spam button I was so tempted to click it but I always resisted, but then when I finally did, it wasn't even on purpose - sort of takes the fun out of it!

I'll definitely be meeting up with Deb so let me know the plans for a GTG and I'll do my best to make it...if you guys can cope with walking very slow for the day ;)
08/01/2009 08:30:02 PM · #20
I am free Saturday and up for it .... I need to be home by 8 otherwise I turn into a pumpkin!! I'll make sure I drag janna with me as well :)
08/02/2009 01:59:24 AM · #21
I will know more tomorrow, but tentatively would like to set up a wander-about for Saturday somewhere in the London vicinity, reachable by tube. And I'm game for wandering slowly as well. Definitely have everyone home by 8 who needs to be, too!

Any suggestions for places to wander about? I do think I'll try to join Steve and Beverly on Monday at the Kew Gardens if they're still going there. So ideas for Saturday?
08/02/2009 02:10:22 AM · #22
Wish I could join you Deb. Sadly flights are a bit out on the £££ side even on Ryanair!
08/02/2009 02:17:43 AM · #23
That's OK, Sarah - I still plan on visiting you where you are, and preferably before it gets cold and dark. :-) I have frequent flyer miles on Lufthansa I have to use, though, so I need to go where they go.
08/02/2009 05:01:13 AM · #24
I might be able to make this, any idea of where and when?
