I’m trying to get ready and my heads going round in circles as I contemplate the things I have to do and/or want to do before I leave..  It doesn’t help that the entire air system in the U.S. has been disrupted by a criminal act in Aurora Illinois.  Flights in and out of Chicago have been particularly affected.  I’m scheduled to change planes in  Chicago.  Will I have a lot of airport waiting time??  Never mind, I’ll take plenty of reading material – and my knitting.

I recently read a very good book – Wake by Anna Hope.  The thread of the story is set in post World War I England and there are flashbacks to action in the War itself.  The author has recreated the overall gloomy atmosphere of England at that time extremely well.        index   I recommend it if you like to read books about the First World War and its aftermath in England.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are you off to Ireland? I just came back from Washington DC and those traveling via Chicago said things were a bit slower, but not too bad.

    My trip was fine apart from a 45 minute delay leaving Seattle which meant. I almost missed my connection. From Chicago to Hartford. am happy to be in Conneticut with one of my sons and his wife and two children. Did major shopping at Ll BEan. Freaked out my bank back in Seattle.
