Not a survey

September 15, 2018
Well, I’d started a survey stolen from Marg, since that’s about the only way to get me to make an entry these days, but after going on and on and on for one question, I decided maybe I better just do the actual survey later. And write about my answer to the question “What are…

    Well of course I haven't made an entry since I was frantically searching for pumps to wear to Cousin E's daughter's wedding, despite my repeated vows that I'll start writing regularly again. Oh, well, twice in a month is actually pretty good considering my usual abysmal record. The wedding was lo...

  • Why are there NO NORMAL PUMPS?!?
    July 1, 2018
    Because I kind of NEED A NORMAL PUMP. I am going to a wedding in a week, (for anyone who knew Cousin E on Open Diary years ago... her daughter, who in my mind is about six years old,  is getting married! July 7th!! And since Cousin E is in fact my real-life cousin, of…

    Oh, look, it's been almost a month since I finished my England entries, and swore I'd start writing non-travel entries regularly again. Hahahahaha!!! My job has suddenly veered from Really Really Busy to Absolute Deadness, though, so I'll take advantage of having pretty much nothing to do for the...

  • England #29- the journey home/wrap up
    May 20, 2018
    Ohhh, how sad it was to have to leave England and travel back home!!! Of course I missed Baker B and the kitties terribly, but I wanted them to join me in England - not for me to return to the US. Sadly that could not be, so return to the US we did, on…

    England #28.2 – Avebury, Part II and one more Barge visit
    May 18, 2018
    OMG, I am... almost finished. So now I'm going to be experiencing the sad end of a wonderful trip all over again. I've got one more entry after this one, the journey home/wrap up one. And that is IT. Finally. (lol, I started this entry DAYS ago. I've been spoiled at work for weeks by…

    England #28.1 – Avebury, Part One
    May 14, 2018
    I'm making this into two entries because we went to Avebury twice- the first time was the Stonehenge/Barge/Avebury/Marlborough day (Tuesday May 9, 2017; yes I have officially lapped myself) when we didn't stay all that long as it was getting late and everything was closed. Including somewhere to ...

    England #27 – a quick pass through Wells, Somerset
    May 11, 2018
    This will be mostly pictures, since we didn't spend much time in the very pretty and very tiny town of Wells . Wells is the smallest city in England, with the exception of the City of London, which is technically a separate entity from London despite being right smack in the middle of it. Tiny We...

    England #26- Stonehenge and the Barge
    May 10, 2018
    Tuesday, May 9, 2017 - we were off to Wiltshire! Specifically to Stonehenge, with stops in Alton Barnes, Avebury and Marlborough. We've been to all of them before, but I can't get enough of Wiltshire, and I think it's safe to say neither can Kim. Or Baker B, who was with us in 2013 and…

    England #25.2 – Glastonbury Tor
    May 9, 2018
    Onward to the Glastonbury Tor! The Tor is just amazing. In the early 1100s there was a chapel there, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1275, then was rebuilt in the early 1300s. The tower is all that’s left. The Tor, which is the hill itself, is terraced, and the terracing may be the remain...
