This is the start of a longer entry. Or perhaps several short ones. I've got jet lag and work to do, so it may take a few days to get it all out. Meanwhile, here are a couple of pictures for you of my younger daughter and her fiance who were the reason I traveled across the pond for the holiday. Still to come -- the homemade, genuine English Christmas pudding. The lubricated toasts and liberally overserved guests at the lively holiday dinner. With an homage to the dessert that was five limes and a cup of sugar short of a pie.
I don't think my daughter stopped smiling during my entire visit. Neither did her fiance for that matter. They are so excited about getting married. And you're all invited. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
