Hmm...I feel quite excited, and Matthew does too! Robert is contained in his emotions, and the dog is very perturbed with her ears laid back. She absolutely hates the sight of suitcases. There are a hundred things to do at the last minute...laundry, hair washing, notes to be written, garbage to put out, etc and my own travel notes to double check.
Would you believe that I nearly forgot to print out all my notes for England and Wales that I had carefully researched and saved on my computer? Yes indeed...I always said I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached. I have them in a special cardboard folder in my suitcase.
I double checked online, and all that's showing in Stratford Upon Avon on July 25th is "Henry IV Part II". We've decided we don't want to see a part 2 of anything, so we won't be going to a great Shakespeare play. Alas. I assumed there would be a Macbeth play or something interesting. I'm sure there will still be a lot to see there.
So we are going to see "The Mousetrap" in London instead. I've always wanted to do that too!
My parents are coming to take care of the dog. My sister will take care of her too so she will not be lonely. Paul, my nephew, has promised to mow the lawn! Robert mowed it this morning before it got hot. Yes, it's hot here at last, just as we are about to leave for the monsoon rains of Europe!
So, until Friday or whenever I can find a computer again, take care! I'll miss you all, but hope to see a lot of comments to cheer me as I work my way around Europe!
