Parry the Parrot here has been a better correspondent than I these past 5 weeks! I have been on the run the whole time and when I sit down at the Milway's PC I grow quickly frustrated. I'm heading home on Tuesday and I will shortly purchase a new Apple computer, at which time I will write a proper synopsis of this year's adventures in Britain. It has been wonderful and exhausting and anyone who thinks I come here to sit in the hammock and eat plums is just plain crazy.
I am extraordinarily fortunate to have such a rich community here, and I am always a bit torn between my two homes back in Virginia and here in the Cotswolds. I often say that I am the richest person I know...and I mean it. See you on the other side of the Atlantic!
