Homeward Bound

I'm here to bring you the Good News. The Second Coming is imminent. The End (of my American imprisonment) is nigh!

We just heard from the honorary British Consul, and he says that my visa will arrive in the next couple of days and that i can book my plane ticket for Friday week. I don't know how he got a 10 week process shortened to less than 3, but I'm not looking a gift-bulldog in the mouth.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It is not a train. Life is good.

Oh wow! That's amazing!

10 weeks of playing "bridge" in your mom's flannel sheets would have gotten old.

Congratulations!

Mr Murph said...

"Honorary Consul" sounds a bit Victorian - does he wear a big hat?

Hurrah for the news!

It has been said that a prophet is without honor in his hometown.
I am delighted to hear that you will get back to where you once belong, to nestle into the bosom of the Motherland and ensconce yourself in the heart and minds of the Empire.

Give me an EH-men!
