Only in England
Yesterday morning, while walking Olga, I found a British Airways boarding pass for a Lord lying on the street.
At first, I thought it was for a man named Lord. It actually said Lord So-and-so on it, and if someone can name a baby Messiah I don't see why they couldn't name one Lord. But I looked this guy up, and Lord is his title -- well, he's an Earl, but Lord is the appropriate term of address.
I found it amusing that he used his title on his airline reservation. Maybe he gets better treatment if British Airways knows who he is. He flew coach, New York to London, seat 29 K. Which I think is a window.
(Note to Lord So-and-so: Buy a shredder.)
Things are quiet around here this weekend, which Dave and I are very excited about. We have no obligations at all. I just want to read and clean the house and walk the dog and maybe take a photography walk today or tomorrow. Even better: No rain!
