The innkeeper from Wales that came over to the Cotswolds to see me last year is coming to ME in Jule. She will be here for both my concerts too.

She likes gardens so I have booked us in to a B & B in pittsburgh that is near Phipps Conservatory for 2-nights (she gets in at 10:30 PM). Then I am taking her to Point Park to see the Ft Pitt battlements and museum before going to another gardens that is on the way to where I grew up. Going to show her Colliers, WV, the Old St John;s Road (where I grew up - no town and still that way), and then to Toronto (Ohio) where I wnt to high school to meet my friend Dani & stay at what used to be HER B & B.

Then will take her to Stan Hywet Hall in Akron, Ohio (the home of the Seiberling family - Goodyear Rubber) before we come home to Gillum House. I have concerts on July 1 & July 4. On the 5th we will head out for Richmond to visit a lady Mary met in 1989 when the lady stayed at Mary's B & B - they have kept in touch. THEY are taking us to Williamsburg for the afternoon. Next day I am taking Mary to see Madison's home, spending the night at a B & B in Charlorresville so we can visit Monroe's home and Jefferson's before coming home. I am taking her to a City Council meeting to show her off before she goes back.

Now SHE is planning where she is going to take ME in November when I go back to England to do 2 trade shows there for BedPosts. Life is GREAT!!! (Pray I have a good season so I can pay for it.)

My Brit friends are fleshing out the trip for me. The gentleman who picked me up at Heathrow last time i doing it again. He will get my laptop set up the way it needs to be for the trade shows. Then I will go to London for 2 nights with my son. When he goes back to Finland, I go to Wales. The following weekend, after the first show and some more site-seeing in Wales, the innkeeper in the Cotswolds has invited me back so we can visit - last time they were up to their ears in throwing a 70th birthday party with friends & family (they KNOW how to throw a party!!!). Then it will be time to travel to the last B & B Show and the lady who took me back the Heathrow last time is planning to help staff that one so I will go home with them and they will take me back to the airport again.
