OPS Normal in February/March and April

#1 Post by OFSO » Tue Feb 12, 2019 8:59 am

I'll be in London from next weekend until the second weekend in March, and again in April from the 8th. Anyone passing thru and having thoughts about an Ops Normal lunch please contact me. Possibly The Captain on the run from his in-laws or ex-A flogging hippo hides ?

I believe Woody and Caco are both in CPT.

I'd suggest outside the Angel, Islington, tube station at 12:00 on Monday 18th or Tuesday 19th as there is a range of eateries within ten minutes walk, including my favourite pub, the Narrow Boat.

That sounds good to me. As things stand either date suits me, Monday probably better. Will check with SWMBO as she may want to join us.

Sorry OFSO we will be miles away. Really have no inclination to visit the UK.

I am worried that the Unholy Alliance of Caco and Woody will have depleted the Cape's reserves of decent wine. There had better be some left for me!

That's one of the politer things that I've called you bearing in mind that the site is meant for family viewing!

I hope that you had a good time but I reiterate that I also hope you've left some wine for me.

You can be sure that they will have passed all the wine available.

Unholy Alliance

Woody, I may have some shots here of Capetonian. The balance of terror lies with us! =))

Just kidding Capetonian! ;)))

PS - I am sorry I missed your shindig on Monday, but as some Latin Johnny once said "ex nihilo nihil fit" and I had to catch up on the pile of work that mounted up while I was galivanting with Woody et al.
