Off again
« on: Aug 19, 2015, 05:32:05 PM »
Just so you won't think I have stopped posting,  We are off early tomorrow to pay an impromptu visit to my sister on the Isle of Lewis (Outer Hebrides).  Perth by tomorrow evening.  Friday, Uig on Skye for the ferry across the Minch to Harris, then a drive up Lewis.  I will keep in touch using my 'phone if I can.

Lucky you xetog.  The journey will be as good as the visit with a bit of luck. I haven't been that way for nearly 40 years. Bon voyage or maybe bon trip.

Never look down on anyone, unless it is to offer your hand to help them up.

Here we go again.  My last post for a while.  We are awaiting the car to take us down to Southampton to meet the Queen Mary 2 for a trip across the Atlantic.  She leaves about 17.00 and arrives in New York one week from today at 07.30, so our 52nd wedding anniversary (21st)will be celebrated at sea.  We will be with our daughter to celebrate her anniversary on 23rd and again for Christmas day (previously mentioned several times) and we fly back late 26th/27th.  I hope for the opportunity to post from NY.  By the time we get home we will have had 12days of good eating!  Merry Christmas everyone.
