Origin of the Name

It was the 1970′s and Gordon Wellwood (Bree’s father) was travelling alone all over the world. Some places were potentially hostile. But before he set out on his journey he created a code phrase with his family. The idea was that if he was truly in trouble and needed money, he would send (via a cable: it was a different time) this code to alert his family of his troubles. Thugs intent on fleecing his parents, on the other hand, would not think to open their request for money in this way. That phrase was “Having a wonderful time... (please send money).” We now have to come up with a new code phrase.
