Thanks to the RLM Software flight tracker I see my father just landed at Heathrow airport a few minutes ago. He should be calling me in about an hour to meet him at the Hendon Central tube station.
This is the first time in the 4 years that I've lived in London off and on that one of my parents have been able to visit me (It's about freaking time. ;) I'm very excited to spend time with him and to show him around the city for the next 5 days.
Camera duel with dad:
The last time I saw him he was a little black speck waving goodbye to me at the ferry.
Hehe people are always telling him he looks like some celebrity it seems, but I'm not sure if he's had Tommy Lee Jones yet. When he was younger he always mistaken for Mickey Dolenz from The Monkees and even signed an autograph as him once. Since he bought some glasses people on the street have called him David Letterman. :P
Fortunately these were taken in the states and he wasn't driving. :)
I forgot about "that automated thing". We used to always rent videos from the machine at the Texaco station or the library.
Merry (belated) xmas & happy new year to you too!
