Have a good trip Eastie, Dont break out crying like Chevy " I cannot get left!!!!" 8p

So your gonna leave us all alone with Beau in charge here at TT......(Muhhwaaaaaaaa) When you get back from across the pond, Beau will look like one of those "after the wild party fall out" pics you see on the internet. We are gonna get him drunk, have one eyebrow shaved off, magic marker hitler mustache on his face, a big pirate hoop earring. a big "Kick Me" sign on his back, a MR. T style haircut on him, paint his finger nails, then we are gonna duck tape his legs together and put him on a couch with his hand in bucket of warm water so he wets his pants, then put the couch up on top of some dressers so its about 6 ft in the air, then we are gonna wake him up the next morning by flashing the lights on and off really fast and hit the fire alarm and watch him freak out and fall off the couch into a big pile of pillow feathers that get stuck to him because we poured honey all over him before waking him. :popcorn: :uglyhamme

If any misdeeds should befall Beau, just remember this.

"... I am a superstitious man and if he should be shot in the head by a police officer, or if he were to hang himself in his jail cell, or if he's struck by a bolt of lightening! I'm going to blame some of the people in this room, and that I do not forgive. But that being said, I want to swear here, ... I will not break the peace we have made here today."

Have fun, Doug. :wavey:

I know it doesn't sound like much of a "tourist" attraction, but while we were in London two years ago, we sat in on the House of Commons one day. Pretty interesting stuff... The wife got busted for taking a picture inside :eek:

Dont worry man, We wont mess with the powers that be :o I dont want you dispatching Santino or Michael on my tail :eek: I aint much worried about Fredo though....

Beau will be just fine when you get back :)

I'm told by a boss that the court system is interesting to take in. But this trip is just me going over there to hang out with an old college buddy of mine. More of a trip than a vacation. The difference being that when I get home from this trip, I'll need a vacation. But good sight seeing is on my agenda. Just noticed that Clapton is playing 3 shows at the Royal Albert Hall. My guess is that it's too late for tickets to that though.

I wouldn't worry about Fredo. He's too busy trying to close a deal on a boat before he goes off to band camp. ;)
