Wink London: Door knocking.

What are the chances of knocking on the door of this 'big house' in London to ask if I could search her yard?

I knew she was home because her personal standard was flying over her house but then common sense 'reigned' with the thought of spending a considerable amount of time in the Tower of London.

.....Doug.

Lol, you should go for it. The old girl might be interested in some loot dropped by her predecessors over the centuries.

Heck! You could pass for Prince Phillip! Simply Dress appropriately, salute the guards and waltz on in there and give it a quick sweep! Dont bother the Royalty with your 'asking' shenanigans! What are you? Irish? or worse yet, a Colonist?

Lose that 'Michelin Man' vest though..huge detriment! It looks too French...

Getting to the door might be the hardest part. Those guys out front in the fuzzy hats might object.
