FAMW: Return to (Ohio via) Heathrow Airport

[From November of 2010. -- DLA]

Nine days ago, passengers arriving at Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport, outside of London in the UK, were greeted in the manner demonstrated here. That's right, kids. T-Mobile is at it again. If they did this in the USA, it would almost make up for certain new security features implemented by the TSA.

Let's look at that playlist, shall we (with H/T to LadyJferyou)?

0:11 - 0:36:
Etta James, "At Last"
0:37 - 0:55:
Mel Torme, "Comin' Home Baby"
0:56 - 1:18:
Mark Morrison, "Return of the Mack"
1:19 - 1:39:
Iggy Pop, "The Passenger"
1:40 - 1:53:
Thin Lizzy, "The Boys are Back"
1:54 - 2:05:
Kaiser Chiefs, "Oh My God"
2:06 - 2:26:
George Michael with Aretha Franklin, "I Knew You Were Waiting"
2:27 - 3:03:
Peters and Lee, "Welcome Home"

We should all really do this more often. Then we wouldn't NEED a pat-down for that holiday trip to Grandma's. Something to think about for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

The above is from last November, and it came to mind while I was packing today, for the trip to Ohio tomorrow morning. There will be more to say about that later, but for now there are bills to pay, laundry and errands to be done, and other preparations to make. “Welcome home, welcome! Come on in and close the door ...”
