Home Away from Home

Toff and Georgie's home in the Cotswolds

I depart for the U.K. tomorrow for my 34th visit. I first came to that Sceptered Isle in January of 1978 and I can't explain how much I value all the time I've had and friends that I've made...I love being a part of this tiny village and the community that continues to welcome me. I always think that i should arrange a show somewhere with Toff, but then there is tea to drink and cake to eat and plums to pick and before I know it, I'm back on the plane home! But I'm open to suggestions...
Parry, my arch enemy. I have 5 lbs. of peanuts for you, pal.
The old bottle kiln at Winchcombe.
I'll be recording my cider friends history.
Important to avoid the sheep poo.

You might not be escaping much heat the way it is here at the moment. It's a British summer that we haven't seen in a long long time.

Have a wonderful trip! I met Parry while I was there :) He was sunning himself in a cage outside the shop. Loved him! Also left with a ton of damsons from Toff's tree. Mmmmmm.
