|Must have been the laptop I was using, works fine for me now, too.

~Thank you for bringing me back to that thread, Poppie. It brought back wonderful memories of how all of this came to be.

The sun is shining bright in London today and I am loving it. I just looked at the forecast and it says sunny for Friday, the day of the wedding. \Keep your fingers crossed ladies.

Yes, I am still hoping Celtic and Lucien will be able to pop over for a day or two.

I love Stonehenge - both Dennis and I have been there twice. We actually haven't much time to do touristy stuff and I am finding touring around with Dennis to be a bit difficult.

This trip has reminded me how lucky we are in the states with our disabled citizens. There are few elevators here, and many that are here are too small for his wheel chair. Some subway stations have escalators, but they are difficult to manuevuer with the wheel chair. Cabs are outrageously expensive and the streets are so packed with cars that have the right-of-way over pedistrians.

Ann, my son is in London right now and he said the same thing; traffic jams everywhere. He didn't sound too impressed. I've heard that everything is outrageously expensive in London, but at the same time most millionaires in the world live there.

I'm sure it isn't easy to get around with the wheel chair. Maybe a drugstore or the tourist center has information on wheelchair friendly routes?

Hope you have a lovely sunny day tomorrow at your sister’s wedding.

How's the trip going? Send us a photo of you guys all decked out for the wedding. Hi Poppie...so good to see your beautiful face and how lucky for you to meet Anno.

In 1991 I was driving to Wales after taking a Channel Ferry from France and was trying to drive around London via the M-something (not sure if it was the M-1 or the M-5...can't remember). Anyway, the more I tried to go around London the more I got into it and ended up smack dab in the middle by Picadilly Circus...with taxi's and double-decker busses honking and screaming all around me. I was a nervous wreck with a migraine headache by the time I finally got out of there. It was one of the most harrowing driving experiences of my life. I know Brits who refuse to drive in London...now I know why! But, I do love that city. I'd give anything to see it again...but, this time I'd take the train and underground.
