It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance,  Colonel Sir. Or is it just Sir? I beg your pardon, but I am from New England, and quite unfamiliar with British titles. You must have the most fascinating stories of battles! 

I have been unusually busy, what with planning my wedding, work, and all, but I do hope to have a chance to talk more with you soon!

Take care,

Brenda
