Arrived smack on time on Virgin Air. Security in Boston took all of 60 seconds, and immigration and customs at Heathrow took 90 seconds. Virgin gives you an express pass which is even faster, apparently, then having an EU passport. We had to find our driver amidst 50 or so holding signs (one doing so with his teeth, thank goodness not our driver), and The Stafford had our penthouse suite ready for our 8 am arrival.
We visited Harrod’s, enjoyed high tea at the hotel, and made some additional reservations for the week. I have a separate office in the suite, sort of a corner nook, which is great for writing.
I’d love to say I’m having withdrawal signs from Olympic curling competition, but I’m not! (I think Apolo Ohno is terrific, but going crazy over seven medals is a bit much when Bonny Blair won five golds and a silver.)
I’ve engaged a cartoonist, and in the next month you’ll be seeing a weekly strip here called “The Adventures of Koufax and Buddy Beagle.”
