Almost home....

......after a lovely ten days in the UK staying with good friends and catching up with other friends in Cheshire for ten days.  I've (for right now) decided not to moan about the WT's travelling - I'm sitting writing this in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare waiting for the little puddle jumper to Kalamazoo - all courtesy of his "diamond encrusted" status on American airlines!  Even better, the area where I'm sitting is cell phone and loud conversation frowned upon, lovely!  In desperation I moved in here after being regaled with the entire wedding service and menu from the reception of a couple who appeared to have more money than sense! Oh, and I thought you might like to see a picture of the WT.  Nice, isn't he?

The WT Catching Up with World News at Manchester Airport
 The connection is a bit slow here so I'm having trouble putting up more photographs.  It's quite amazing, too, a couple of people seem to be having trouble grasping the concept of cell phone free too, just had to ask an Arabic gentleman to please finish his conversation somewhere else!  After quite a few years of working for Whole Foods Market I have no problem getting in people's faces (in a very ladylike way, of course!).

Our flight will be called soon so had better go, leave me a comment if you feel so inclined, I do enjoy reading them!
Oh, and by the way, bringing granary flour in your cabin baggage is NOT a good idea, I got searched twice!

A giveaway on DJ's blog to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

This is just a quick dive in and out - my dear friend, DJ, is having a giveaway over at her blog, please get over there right now and check it out!  Even if you don't need another chart still stop by for a visit and catch up on the journey that DJ is taking - she didn't really want to travel this road but, my goodness, you will be amazed and encouraged by her attitude and her frankness, you will be giggling in some places and crying in others.

Small note from me - my LAST biscornu is in its envelope  waiting to be sent to Michelle - was halfway out the door to the post when I realised it is Columbus Day today!
