Saturday night we went for dinner and then met friends for drinks. It was great fun to have a night out in local pubs. It's wonderful when wine tastes the same no matter what continent you are on. Sunday was great. We all went into London to Camden Market. We met up with Jeff from Toronto. It's such an interesting place with people with all different color hair and vendors selling everything from foot wear to falafels. Monday Emma and I went into London on our own. We went for a tour on the London Ducks,similar to the Wisconsin Dell Ducks. Julia wanted a day with Cindy and her boys at home. Tom met Jeff in London for a day of music shopping. We all did what we wanted and it was great. The London Ducks took us around London to all the famous sites and then for a tour on the River Thames. It gave the Wisconsin Ducks a run for it's money. Tomorrow off to London for 3 nights and then to Paris for 3 nights. Blogging may be hard so we'll catch up in Prade France. Hopefully I will find a place to send a quick update. Thanks to everyone who has been sending notes. We love to hear from you.

The Harpers are very important people to us and Cindy, well, for those who know me know how close Cindy and I are. Russell and Cind... full info
