It's a beautiful day in that the newlyweds came to see me. They brought me the was it Evening Standard? newspaper from Great Britain. Apparently "they" whomever is in charge of that, brought out the Queen's jewels as that was mentioned on the front page of the Standard. I will save it for reading here shortly. So Neil and new bride were able to see them!
They played some videos they took and that was great fun. They were housed in the middle of London within walking distance of most of the places they wanted to be sure to see. The British Museum...how AWESOME! I can't believe what they have in there. And the Rosetta Stone? WHOA! So many things. I wish I could spend like a day in each room to get it all absorbed!
There was some demonstration over something. Though the language was/is English, the shouting was not understandable and so the newlyweds had no idea what was so bad. There were hoards of police too, at least 40!!! My son said everyone in the streams of demonstrators seemed clearly drunk. Go figure. There was shouting, chanting and none could be decipherable to Neil and Christi.
Meanwhile, I ate the rest of the green beans and potatoes for breakfast no less a thing and I had the strawberries that were left for brunch. Oh my gosh, deLICious!!
I looked for green beans in the grocery today and they were sealed up in opaque plastic BAGS! No way! I have always wanted to see and feel them. None of that hiding it away stuff.
Tomatoes, not greenhouse ones were...$2.79 a POUND! In the grocery!
I took the picture in the header a winter ago when myself and two sons went to Nashville to spend the day. We walked everywhere. When one son was at Vanderbilt, he went to the Parthenon all of the time. He has been to the real one since but this one is a huge attraction both to locals and tourists. Very impressive. Copy and paste this into your browser or follow the link I finally put in, above.
Thanks for putting up with my delirium over the fresh veggies. I forgot how delicious they are...but I think that was pretty obvious. :-)
