Default The yanks are on the way over the pond.................

and we are all so excited. They called us last night from Minnesotta and are going to be starting their long trek today to England. So much catching up to do, so much to see - we will really be great hosts to them whilst they are here.

Pray for us that the weather is kind for them - dry at least.

Will post all the piccies but all hae a good week.

REgards to all

Yeah, I wouldn't count on DRY! I'm sure it will be a great week and they will love whatever you decide on. For me, just being in England is a kick...... just walking around is fun. Samuel Jonson was right, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life."

We did a 16-day tour of the British Isles and Ireland 5 years ago, and saw light showers only two times in that period. When asked how often he had seen weather like that, our tour guide replied "Never!" Of course, it wasn't in the month of May. It was actually in August. But it can happen. <G>

Let's hope that you and your Yank visitors have such good fortune as well, Maureen.

Jack

Kimmie:
Don't worry about the weather it isn't any better here in Minnesota. If you have three or four days of sunshine they'll appreciate it. It's been a soggy Spring here in the Minneapolis area. My area remind me more of Widdecombe on the Moor than just west of Minneapolis. <VBG>

Have a wonderful time with the Yanks.

Take care,
Mike

Wish I could join all of you in beautiful England. Being of Welsh background myself, I'd really, really like to go over the pond again and be with you all!
Have a great time together!

Just to let you all know that we had the most WONDERFUL time and the weather was kind. The last 4 days was real summer and we all made the most of it.

Back to work for a rest - we really it the ground running. They absolutely love England and are planning their enxt trip - 2 weeks next time.

Turns out my good friend Tammy originates from Scotland and she met one of my good friends who shares her grandmothers maiden name - Davidson. It was such a coincidence and Tammy went back with a plaque, tartan and a bottle of Davidson pure malt whisky for a mother who broke down on the phone when she called her up.

It was a wonderful week and we are all friends for life - We are all going to St. Thomas in the autumn (fall) and then they are coming over here in Feb and we are going over to Minnessota in June next year (to avoid the snow and the mosquitoes).

It is so great to have such great friends and the miles don't matter.


Happy Tuesday to all out there - glad to be back.

Regards,
Kimmiegirl
