Wednesday 5th October 2016....back home!!

I have really enjoyed seeing Anne again and she treated me so well also loved the sights of London what a vibrant and moving city.....this morning we went shopping and guess who is going to look so spiffy in his new shoes at the Golden wedding on Saturday!!!!

Took  a couple of trains back to Hull this afternoon and fortunately no cows on the line this time and the journey went well....and I was back home at J & M's just after 6.00 pm!!!

This evening spent catching up with Janet and Malc as we all prepare for their big 50th wedding celebration dinner!!!

Nothing special tonight...



What am I going to do next Wednesday when back in Canada and I cannot watch the show??????

Les, just love the blue shoes! They remind me of Elvis and his blue suede shoes. Ha! Looks like we in the USA have to wait for the latest episodes of the Great British Bake Off until your network syndicates the latest show to our Public Broadcasting Station (PBS). In the meantime, we have Hurricane Mathew blowing his way up the East coast, and we are locking down all projectiles in the yard from high speed winds. I hope to get to the Wingies soon when this storm is over.
