Peek a Boo!

Peek a Boo! I had enough of those headaches. I called my travel agent and booked a trip to get away. London, Paris, Milan, Rome.......all through Europe. I had not done that, and I really needed it. Being poor before, I had only been to Mexico and Jamaica. All that history was amazing. Some places weren't so great to be American. Boy, when people tell you that we aren't popular, they are RIGHT! Having the appropriate money straightened those Europeans right up though. I didn't take any crap. But I didn't stir any up either. It was fun to get away and relax. And my headache is finally gone! How have YOU been?

Good to see you back online WFW! I'm glad you're taking advantage of the windfall for travelling! (I am soooooooo envious). Hope you keep blogging about your travels! If you stop by Greece, make sure to e-mail me so we can meet for coffee.
I've written you a formal thank-you note (on my recent post) for being my first-ever blogger to leave a comment on my blog a year ago.

We had blog birthdays recently... so Happy Bloggiveraries!

Hey WFW: glad you're back. Yep, yep, we aren't the most popular in the world - thanks to the Bush-leaguer and Ronald Dumsfield. I served in the military and never thought I would write such a thing about the prez but this man has caused the world so much misery (when he could have done so much good). Consequently, people in the world that use to love us - now don't. Anywho, I hope you had a great time. As for me, I had to build some new chicken houses - we are going to start raising cage-free stock for breeding purposes. A real challenge. Old Baldy

Hey! You skipped Ireland! The best part, and we even speak english, sorta. ;-) I'd even have bought you a Pint.

Really most of europe is better informed than you might think, and they do know who to hate. It's not the american people, it's the american government.

Interesting how the american government no longer represents the american people. Didn't the americans revolt when they were taxed without representation?

Sorry I wax political, but do come to ireland, they will treat you right.

I'm with Branedy. Ireland is soooo beautiful. Once there, one can't possibly want to leave.

I'm glad you got to get away, dear and that it took care of your headaches.

I still have a crush on Old Baldy. ;)

Finally you took a trip! Can't believe it took you this long - I would have been on a plane within weeks of my windfall. A plane to Anywhere But Here.
