Hi, Sarah,

Of course Jane is welcome, and I've added her to my list of those to be
picked up. Be patient. It's only 11:19 A.M. on the 17th here in
Arizona, and the party can't start until the 18th in Cornwall. Since
the MMMC travels at lightspeed, there will be no actual delays, except
perhaps to load passengers at the various stops. Virtual delays on the
other hand, will abound, so that we can enjoy various sights on the way,
and partake of the in-flight entertainment, etc. <G> Not to worry
about the ice holding you to the tower, we'll pack the blow torches.
<GG> If you come free before we move to a position to catch
you.....just be patient. We move at lightspeed, so we'll get to you
before you hit anything. <VBG> We've rigged a trampoline so that it
can be extended from the trunk (boot for those of British persuasion) by
remote control. There's a big yellow "X" in the middle, so you can't
miss it. I figure your bouncing can entertain the passengers while we
go down to pick up those sensible folks who chose to wait on the ground
by the tower. <Enourmous Grin> Be sure to glue that slinky dress down
where it counts, or the passengers might mutiny in favor of just
watching you bounce instead of attending the party.

See you tomorrow.
