That was the instruction I received on a Monday night about 7.45 pm in a telephone call from a female with an interesting accent. It could be something out of a Le Carre novel or it could be the instructions to a Sailor for any sort of nefarious activity that your mind may conjure. In this case it was the instructions for my first appointment to be on a clinical trial. To sign all the paperwork, to have my tests to ensure my eligibility, to cross my fingers and hope that I get the drug and not the placebo. (Unlike most cancer clinical trials this one is placebo controlled as there is no alternative treatment!) All done - bloods, ECG, urine, pain charts, fatigue charts, etc, etc. Signed my life away on various forms, so now I wait to ensure my eligibility. I'll keep you all posted. Sailor PS - Alana is very nice and has the most beautiful voice. A tourist remains an outsider throughout his visit; but a sailor is part of the local scene from the moment he arrives. Anne Davison
