Missing

Again we nearly missed a meal (lunch today) by getting to it late. I would have gotten a fish & chips, but we're in the quite posh neighborhood of Belgravia (near Kensington) at a hard-to-find pub on a mews (the fact that it is quite hidden has no bearing on the price, just the complete lack of tourists in an otherwise touristy area). So I instead got the fried fish sandwich. And it was delicious.

Some British names that amuse us include: Cockfosters, Tooting, Turnham Green, St. John's Wood, Wapping, Cockspur. I mentioned Turnham Green to my British coworker and he did not see the humor.

Every time I see the letters TO LET, I think ther is a letter missing from the space.

"to let" in the same way. Ha ha ha, thanks for that one!
