  1. Congratulations Mary. You definitely deserve the award!

    I didn't know you'd been to London. You'll have to go back sometime and see the rest of England.

    And thanks for including me in your list. I recognize some of those names, really nice blogs and good friends too.

  2. Thank you, Sheila.

    Russ won a trip to London in 2000. It was only 4 days. Not nearly enough time to do London justice. We had a great time though. If we ever get to England again, I'd love to spend at least a month. I think a year or two would be more like it for everything I would love to see. :)

  3. 4 days is certainly short. A friend of ours took two weeks recently and managed to travel to lots of good places. The trains really help.

    Still, 4 days in London sounds nice. did you catch a show?

  4. Thank you so much for passing the award on to me and congrats on receiving it yourself! :)

  5. we saw the Hunchback of Notre Dam Sheila. I was so impressed with the acting, the dancing, the singing, and the props. Of course I had seen Hunchback several times before but never like that.

  6. Mary, thank you ever so much for the Award! I see you've passed it forward to some splendid recipients!

  7. You're welcome Ruth. Aren't they all marvelous?
