I wonder if there choices of Snakes On A Plane, Airport, Castaway, Con Air, Passenger 57, and Air Force One were the very best.
They should have gone with Alive. That movie makes me scared of turbulence, especially in those rickety prop planes Horizen Airline and Air Canada’s Jazz Airline uses. Combine that with a flight delayed due to “mechanical problems” and a soul that has ‘t been to confession in 10 years… I really do prefer to drive, even if it means putting in 1500-2000 kms in a day.
The photo does look like London (the Union Jacks help). In fact it looks to me like my memory of Oxford street. Is this correct?
Welcome once more to this sceptred isle :-)
Blognic sounds good.
C’mon. He’s the Dad of two young girls. You may not like that the President isn’t anti-homosexual but your humor here is a bit coarse.
Fr. Z., have fun on your travels!
Just don’t forget to come back home!
Too funny – though it reminds me yet again of why I hate to fly. Have a wonderful trip Fr. Z! Many Blessings on your travels.
Easy on the Blognic Father . .you’ve just arrived . . We are miles . .and miles from London, so would need to make arrangements. Early next week would do us . . Or Friday evening next week before the LMS meeting . .???
Next Monday and Tuesday are special bank holidays . . .so it might be difficult to get accommodation . .??? . . Oi vey . .!!! What to do . .!!!
Just checked some hotels . . .we could make Sunday . .Monday . .Tuesday . .and possibly next week end.
Work permitting . .my employers might throw a spanner in the works.
So put us two Northeners down as a definite – maybe . .!!!
PostCatholic. Coarse, really? Hysterical.
I’m looking forward to some more photos of your adventures and meals while in Britain.
And I am looking forward to hearing your talk at the LMS Conference on 9th. (The one you were preparing perhaps?)
Aw shucks! There I will be – flying from Trinidad to Gatwick on Monday 11th (arriving about 9:00 am on the 12th) and getting the next available coach to Swansea (about 10:00 am) – the next leg of my journey to Cardigan. I will only catch the tiniest glimpse of London.
I would have joined the blognic if I wasn’t heading west.
Coal Hole again?
Glad you had a safe flight flight.
Hope it is an enjoyable trip.
Father, safe travels! A pub rec for you: Make a stop at the Harp in Charing Cross and have a pint of real scrumpy. Marvelous place—8 real ales, and the cider is not some fizzy crap out of a keg but is poured from jugs behind the bar. They also have perry. Have a pint and imagine you are in the West Country! [Great recommendation! Thanks for that!]
Welcome; maybe make it to Scotland sometime?!
Flight noise, not my little stupor mundi !!
@PostCatholic, I thought what Fr. Z said was funny, and it wouldn’t shock me if it came to pass.
Two males, one female, Obama…. As long as they don’t make babies!
Incidentally I have no idea how that works! With the headphones, or otherwise…. Oh boy it gets deep quick.
Happy sojourning in the UK.
Give my love to Mrs. Broad and the girls.
[Ah, yes, the Grapes. And I must make a stop at Half Moon Street, as well.]
Yes, our POTUS is the father of two young girls. And he uses this when making phone calls to young women like Sandra Flukes to further his political goals . He also trying to set up a new world order that will take away certain value systems that young women especially need these days. In these sad days, a good laugh is welcome.
Have a wonderful trip, Father. We will all I’m sure be praying for your safe return.
Welcome to England, Father.
If you have a blognic, let us know as soon as possible. Glad you landed safely.
Glad you made it safely to England, Father Z (and during Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend, no less!).
I just found out, from my priest-friend in the Salford [Manchester] diocese, that he was recently on this side of ‘the pond’, in the USA! He was on a three-week tour that took him to NYC, Washington DC, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia! He relayed me some of his adventures in a long letter,, which I received when I picked up my mail at the post office after having held it there for nearly a month.
That said, have a great time in the UK, Father Z….will you be meeting up with your fellow priest-blogger in Blackfen (‘His Hermeneuticalness’, aka Fr. Tim Finigan)?
Hope the weather will be nice for your visit, as well as for The Queen’s Jubilee. Here in the northeastern US, we might have a soggy few days….
Baeda . . .the Harp is a good pub, used it as my “local” back in ’98 when I worked in London, usefull to know about the cider . . .but for real cider, ask Fr Tim to get a few gallons from Parkminster . . Yum, yum.
The Harp is a bit on the small side . .are there rooms upstairs .???
What about inviting some of the SSPX brethren along . .??? [If I knew some here, I might!]
