DH just emailed this to me! :eek :o0 :o0 :o0 Man arrives at wedding year early LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Teacher Dave Barclay flew thousands of miles across the Atlantic to Wales to attend his friend's wedding, only to discover he was a year early. Barclay, 34, was told about the wedding earlier in the year and assumed it was to take place in 2007. It was only when he had flown into Cardiff from Toronto, Canada, and rang the bridegroom seeking details of the venue that he discovered the wedding was in 2008. "I am a year early -- yeah, my mates are loving it, aren't they," he told BBC Radio Wales. The groom, Dave Best, had emailed his friend at the start of the year. "He just said July the 6th and I assumed it was this year because if you tell the guy July 6th, they're going to think it's this year," Barclay said. Barclay, who has been teaching in Toronto for three years spent £500 ($1,015) on his premature flight. "At least it's assured me a mention in the speech next year," he added. Could you imagine!?! :o0 :o0
