Hi Jackie....just checking in and see that now it must be only 1 more sleep before you head across the pond. Have a great flight...will be tracking your flight along with the others .

It's all good here .....obviously sad to leave your friends but you know SKYPE brings everyone closer and like I believe Rosie said you just close your eyes and you can be anywhere.

Take care and have a safe flight. Nice to see the welcoming committee at this end grow again.

If you were able to read back through all the pages and pages of the old postings, you will see the history of how High Tide, Rodney, and I returned and all the twists and turns in the road for each of us. It was snow time here in December, and each of us got caught in that, especially Rodney and High Tide (who is going/gone back west to get the rest of his life there sorted before returning here). Welcome back to the thread!
I'm still here in Devon and waiting to sign the contract. Trying to move the solicitors along as both sides want this to move quickly. We have asked to go and see the house again on Wednesday so that we can do some measuring etc. Also going to take a contractor along as there will be some work to do before we are up and running.
Went to Totnes the other day which is an absolutely lovely town with a great antique/food market. The town has a great artsy community and has a real bohemian feel to it. Amazing little cafes and cake shopshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totnes
Also went to Plymouth one day. Weather was beautiful and we walked from the Barbican area all the way around Plymouth Hoe. It is great exploring all these places after so many years.
Hope all is going well for you in Frome. Have loved viewing your photos.
David

Yes, Jackie--good flight, good luck, best wishes for your return home! Will be great to read your posts from there.

High Tide, great news that house purchase moving along...have heard of how nice Totnes is, I think the writer mary Wesley lived there and wrote about its charms in a book about the West country?

I love the west country so much...Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, beaches, cliffs....coombes, hills, valleys.....

ah well.

Tina

David! Great to hear from you, and now you have answered the ? "Where is David?'

Buying and selling is a pain, renting is bad enough. And I am glad that you have had the time to look at the Frome photos on Flickr. Not the best by any means, but they give a snapshot of an interesting place to live. I keep expecting to turn a corner and find a minstrel with pointy shoes and a lute!

I have been fortunate enough to get involved in the local Arts and Environmental scenes already - some people are in both groups. It's a good way to meet people and make friends, whist being useful.

Take care, Rosie

Well Jackie this is it, tomorrow you leave our Las Vegas, I know I was in a real tizzy when I got on the plane, and while I was waiting for the engines to start I can remember thinking --- what for heavens sake am I doing, but it passed when we were in the air,
I have had a pretty good life in Las Vegas, met a lot of great people, made friends with a few, had a lot of good times too, you can always find somewhere nice to eat out there, and affordable,
And Im sure you have quite a few friends there dont you, and you will miss them of course, I will miss mine too, but we have got to look at it this way, it was great, but now its time to move on to the next chapter of our life,
Take care my friend and I hope you have a nice comfortable flight,
Rodney.

JACKIE!! Well from where I am sitting it is NO sleeps, so that must mean one last sleep for you. I just checked and it is Monday morning 9.30am for you.

One last sleep and one wake up and you will be getting on that plane and going HOME!!!

We will be tracking you and will be looking our for your first post from the old country. Hope you have internet at your mum and dads place?

Take care, have a safe and pleasant flight and don't look back, only forward.
