This has been a busy year, lots of business trips and a quick weekend or two thrown in for fun. These are kind of like the previews before the feature film. It is time for the major adventure of the year. We will be visiting Bert and Someone for the first week, then I am taking DG to Brussels, Amsterdam and Normandy, then back to London for a long weekend and home. I promise lots of interesting pictures and probably a story or two from along the way. I should be back posting August 14th. Sorry about the long break, you all talk amongst yourselves and you'll be fine while I am off gathering blogg fodder.
