In seven days time I shall be sitting on another plane making my way to Boston for a few days. Gonna meet up with my belovéd, and spend some time hanging out with The Redhead, Joey and Itamar. Specifically, on Saturday 22nd we will be at Clery's so if you are in the area please do come out and play! (Just don't ask me where Clery's is, as I have no idea. I'm just going to follow Red when I get there.)
I have also located a sixpence for Red to wear in her matrimonial shoe. I had never heard the additional line to the traditional mnemonic for the items a bride is supposed to have on her personage at the time of marriage:

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a sixpence in her shoe

I'm honoured to have been asked to supply the sixpence, and delighted that I am able to.
Right now, however, I have just arrived in London for a couple of meetings tomorrow and an intimate little Duran Duran gig at the Hammersmith Palais.
The next few days will go quickly, the weekend will just fly by and before I know it I will be where I most want to be.

What?! And a sixpence in her shoe? What nonsense is this? It doesn't even scan properly. I think they've just made that up so you've got something to do. And surely they don't make sixpences any more – where do you get them from?

No, seriously, it's part of it. 🙂
And Clery's is in the South End section of Boston, near Copley and the Prudential, not far from fancy-ass Newbury Street, very close to an Orange Line T stop (Back Bay) for anyone who might consider joining us.

Ooh, and as per scanning, it's a “silver sixpence” according to this webpage.
