I can't think of any circumstance where the answer to that question would be no.

Hi Magnus, sorry but I'm not likely to be able to join you for this (generously hosted) tasting, but hope you are well and have a good evening; Phil.

In light of your generous offer I will quite gladly expand the theme of this tasting and thus, very gratefully, accept your F77. As Phil wrote above, It's hard to conceive of any occasion where this port would be out of place. Thank you.

Hi Phil, would have been nice to see you next week. Another time I hope!

Apologies:

Cheesy Welsh Rearebit for starters, followed by the Gammon, with black pudding, chips and heritage carrots but NO egg (let Julian have it before it touches my plate!)

Thanks

Both documents look good, please send to B&F.

I can print A4 but will need to do so on Sunday evening latest as I am travelling to the UK on Monday.

Have decanted an additional bottle (for 'dagger') just in case we have a thirst on :D. I expect to arrive shortly after 6.30pm.
