T is for Travels

I had to look up the last blog entry to see where I left off on the alphabet, that's how long it's been. We got our acts together and took a trip to London. I came back sick, got busy working, and life goes on. Funny how the world works, for many years we didn't travel at all, then all of a sudden I went half way around the world twice in six months. Bill is going to Texas, Boston, and Ireland this summer, within the space of a few weeks. Then I'll finally head off to Houston to visit my mom. If you have yarn shops to recommend in any of these places I'd love to pick up a few souvenir skeins (or have them picked up any way).
