Funny things happen on the way to Edinburgh!

... s arranging for my bag to be put in a cab & brought to Birmingham. We get to right station, however we've missed our train. Christine goes in to rearrange our train trip. From outside the large window this doesn't look good. However about half an hour later she reports we have tickets on the 2:00 pm train!

So now on to my luggage--they call to ask in I'll pay for the taxi driver! I said yes, ...
