That was one quick trip!


Came home to weather, came home to the crows , gulls, squirrel and jays. They have not been here since I have been gone- They all came today, loads of them. Peanuts and lard for everyone!!

I also came home to our fifth flood, I don't know I have lost count, and Christmas decorations/lights and such still up.


This is the box in the drive with all of our stuff from the basement in it. The wood floors  are totaled.
Good thing  home owners will cover most of the cost this time.


The flight home was splendid! Virgin Atlantic premium which is only 100 dollars more , well worth it! Pampered, well fed and entertained, I watched three pretty good movies- "The Wife" Glen Close is marvelous! I watched a biopic of Blaze Foley, love his lyrics- his life a mess as one would expect, whiskey soaked and dirt...my favorite was Bombshell, about Hedy Lamar, her inventions and the raw deal Goldwyn Meyer gave her... the patriarchal world, pretty much goes without saying. Anyway I recommend it. Alice Phoebe Lou sings SHE during the credits and if that isn't just the icing on the cake!
I watched three episodes of Killing Eve, favorite- black comedy, pretty dark but hilarious.

I sat next to an enigma- the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, also the most helpful and generous.  A talker but very  interesting- initially. When she spun off onto woo woo she lost me pretty much, though her take on  life during these times of change was curious and rather hopeful if you believe that we are spiritual beings on a mission. I made sure she heard me when I exed GOD out of the conversation- The flight was just too long for that and I could not be polite for ten hours .
So, all in all, trip home was - a trip home, the usual let down.I miss London of course- may never get back again, who knows, Brexit is flushing her down  the toilet- what a mess!
There is no floating device large enough to save her from drowning in her own shit.

My stay there was fabulous , the ceiling did not fall down like the last time. Sarah was delightful as always-  Everything worked and that which didn't I replaced or added new stuff.
I am a good renter.
 Lost my credit card the final few minutes of running around- left it at BOOTS.
Last day better than first, wouldn't you say.
 Home again, jiggetty jig- in a half assed way. Now , to catch up on reading your blogs...

    1. a good time for weaving, or painting bright colors on anything that will hold still. These days are dark, color beaten to a grey mash, like pulp but not to a pulp- it's not dead yet.

  6. Welcome back! We missed you and your insightful posts. As Ellen said, he's still here and I think he's getting worse. His latest was saying Nancy Pelosi is a fan of human trafficking. Sorry about the floods and happy home owner's will cover it. It's such a nuisance.
