The same one. He's been visiting a small printer company in Lexington ... Lexsomething IIRC ... and was somewhat worried about getting stuck. And he is stuck.
The meal was a bunch of colleagues, who were supposed to be attending the Gordon Ramsey place at Versailles. The trip involved travelling Eurostar, but alas for ogranisation, there was a fire in the Channel Tunnel the day before, which rather messed that up.
I've dropped him an email expressing commiserations, hope that he gets home in time to spend tomorrow with his daughters, and a hope that it wasn't that famous product of Kentucky that was the real reason for the delay. However, he's a loyal Scot, and deeply convinced that Whisky should never have an E additive.
Ah well, I've now got a bottle of Speckled Hen open in front of me.
