Dear Janet and Theresa:
Well, one thing after another happened and I never got back to get your replies until now. We had a WONDERFUL time in Oxford and England. We went around looking for anything we could that reminded us of Morse or Lewis, and it was a full 5 days in Oxford.

BUT the best Morse-related thing that happened was this. We went to a very good Thai restaurant, the Bangkok House on Hythe Bridge Street. To make the story short, Laurence Fox ended up being seated right next to me. It took us a few minutes to work out that it was he.

I've always been a bit shy about such things AND I've always thought people deserve their privacy when they're just trying to have a meal, etc., so we didn't say anything. Still, it was nice just to have the experience. We both feel like we were a bit silly not saying anything, but at the time it would be foolishly forward to bother him.

Anyway, having been there we not look at all our Morse DVDs and take joy in spotting all the things we can. And it's fun to see things edited in impossible sequence and feel like we're in the know!

Wish I could go back in a time machine and meet John Thaw!
