Betty's Back from the UK!


Hi My People! 

I had a fabulous time in the UK!

Our first stop was London.



I absolutely, positively LOVED London!

  (Can you tell by my stance and attitude in this picture?)


The Royal Albert Hall was very impressive.



We went to a symphony there!  



Loved the British Museum too!



The English Major visited the Globe and was in heaven!



Thanks London for a fabulous vacation!

Tomorrow:  Betty's report from Scotland.


Some of you may be curious about my recent home renovations and how things went while I was gone.  We shall get to that soon, but for right now let's just relax and look at Betty's shiny vacation photos, shall we?

London is truly a great place to explore. Lots to see but very pricey. Was there in May.
