"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

My friends in London have invited me to come visit , I can stay with them.
I can also stay with a family member in their country home .
From there I could visit a friend in Scotland.
And perhaps a friend in France.
I picture myself doing what I / we did in the past.
We went somewhere to visit .. a holiday .. and ended up loving the place and dreaming of living there.
I always wanted to live in England.
I would live in Scotland but 1- the weather might be more than I could cope with 2- would they understand me ? would I understand them ?
Would the fact that my great grand parents etc are English and Scottish help ? I doubt it.
Actually, I want to go back in time.
Anyone want to go with me ?
Yes, I like the idea of the 1960s but even just a few years ago would be OK too.
Back when my life was about US and not just ME.
I like the clothes they wore then.
I love the hairstyles.
I do long bangs (fringe) well ... I can still wear a short skirt and tights.
I will copy Jean Shrimpton ... remember her ?
Or Julie Christie ... yeah ..
Anyone a few years younger than I , has no idea what I am talking about :)
So the cats and I are appreciating a list of nice things so far today ...
1- they allowed me to sleep past 6 am.
2- they allowed me to lie in bed with my coffee and read some of my new murder mystery.
a "cozy " murder mystery.
It was pretty cozy, snuggled in the bed with 2 fussy kitties and big soft pillows..
The sun is shining.
Fall colors are bursting out now - everywhere you look there are totally golden trees, red trees and a lot of leaves on the ground.
Maybe I will take the blower out there and neaten things up.
Or maybe I won't.
I kind of like the look ..
I might be moving. There will be no fall leaves where I might be going.
Unless I go to London.
