Richmond here I come!

Dear All,
While making my preparations in readiness for my trip to
Richmond, I have been informed that my flight from London with British Airways is to take off
from the New Terminal 5 at Heathrow!
Now not being a pessimist and I always try to look on the bright side of life, it has
occurred to me that I’m wasting my time taking any cloths as they have a weeks
back log of luggage to clear already, so what chance for Wednesday week!
This has got me thinking as to how I’m going to dress myself for the Trips,
Dinners and Dance!
Now things in the Land of the Free, will to some extent be
cheap for a lone Brit down on his luck and a long way from home!
Then it hit me, I still have many friends in the ADS, (God Bless
you All) and I can’t wait to see you all again!
So for fun I thought I could ask each of you to bring one item of clothing,
not new but in my size and clean for me to ware in an emergency!
This would spare me the cost of new cloths plus add and element of
entertainment if indeed needed, if/when I ware them!
I can hear you all say, bring some in your hand luggage, but I’m bringing
Flowers, as that, so my priorities are focused and correct, anyway where’s
the fun in that!
So I’m:
Height 6′ 1″
Chest 42 -44
Waist 40″
Inside Leg 31″ish
Shoes 8 1/2 -9
Feet both, Left & Right
Eyes Brown
So there you have it, I can sit back without a care, knowing all
eventualities are taken care of!
Knowing I’ll be the best dressed chap in Richmond!
Regards to all,
1st April 2008

    FedEx or UPS your clothes over a week ahead of time to either the hotel or to one of us in WDS who’s going to the show, who will bring them to you when we come down.  I used to work for a corporate executive who traveled quite a bit, on lengthy trips to Europe, and that’s what he would do — ship the clothes on ahead so he didn’t have to carry so much baggage, then ship them back home when he headed back to the States. The hotels back then (in the 70’s) were great about accepting packages for travelers with guaranteed reservations. Maybe they’re not so accommodating now?
