Home Again, Again

We made it home to Montrose without any major SNAFUs. My sister Peggy and husband Tony picked us up at the airport. No lost luggage, no miscues at the arranged pick up point, and the next day, no flat tires on the drive to Montrose. (We did wake up at 2:30 am with a case of jet lag, but we bravely fought through the initial feeling of energy and stayed in bed til 6 am.) Fergus met us that evening at my sister's house and he was very happy to see us, but of course, he's happy to see anyone. We had some nice wine and a fine American dinner of steak, green beans and the best sweet corn I've tasted in years. Thank you Peggy and Tony for the beds and comestibles and the airport service. Thank you Amy, Dan, Mimi and Max for taking care of our buddy Fergus.

We have no plans to return to France next summer (but we'll see) due to lack of funds. It has been quite a run for quite a while. France, Italy, Austria, Slovakia, Spain, Hungary and Mexico were experienced and enjoyed.

If we can think of anything to blog about in the near future, we will. Otherwise, expect nothing and you won't be disappointed.

It's good to know that things went right on your return trip, and great that Fergus was/is OK. We'll keep an eye on your blog for occasional news in due course. Julian

Glad you made it back safely. What a reunion that must have been with Fergus. Look forward to seeing you back here before too long. Hot as Hades here today--in the low thirties. Will saunter down past your house this afternoon and check for mail. Love to you both. Ange

I'm glad you made it home without the usual SNAFUs! I'm sure it was a case of "absence makes the heart grow fonder" with Fergus.

It's always great to follow your let us know when something interesting happens!

Take care.
