    Well, as you can see from the thread posted below, this isn't her first trip off on her own, just her first international one. Hookette has a bit of a vagabond heart and, um, loves to be handled by couriers. :vbeek: :vbrolleyes:

    Oh, and this is the thread where she was given her name (by Noobette). Some fond memories in that thread and far too many people now missing.

    You know, after a couple of rounds we tried in the thread I linked, that she hates using protection. :vbgrin:

    Ah yes, I remember that thread, but as you rightly mention, this is her first trip abroad. That's always something to remember. I won't talk about the handling part, though ;), but I guess she'll come back with a T-shirt that reads "What happens in London stays in London" :eek::D

    That thread is a very funny read... but lots of BHers are missing now :(

    Hookette landed at Heathrow earlier this morning. Watch out... she apparently has two whole days before she is due at FxTec world headquarters. :vbwink:

    maybe the first documented trip abroad? hard to know, sometimes, exactly what those delivery services really do...

    The irony of this video for 2020 is not lost on me. The remake would no doubt be something like "Downstairs." :vbrolleyes:

    We didn't "go downstairs" in 2020... We were pushed -seemingly by a forceful kick in our collective arse- all the way to the bottom floor (or to the basement for those in northern countries), tumbling and screaming in disbelief the whole way down :( :vbwink:

    Distractions, you say?

    Is this where I tell you that Bixby gives me the UK news headlines 3 times a day? I heard one item about a slight scuffle at the airport in the baggage sorting area. Something about a Yank getting a ittle too friendly with a couple of baggage handlers.

    Wait a minute...WTF?!? This just popped up in the tracking for my Pro1...(reads bottom to top)

    So, does departing for London mean returning to Newark or did I miss "can be used as a boomerang" on the spec sheet. :vbeek:
