    Sounds like a wonderful time. I’m positively GREEN.

  2. That is a whole lot of great time packed into a short while. And may I say that hair of yours looks fab?

    Wow, what a great trip and what great friends! I loved Warwick Castle, too — I even recognized that passageway where you exited. That’s where the castle defenders would allow invaders to get into, then drop the portcullis at each end… and pour boiling oil onto the trapped attackers. Lovely thought.

    Thanks for taking us along on your trip!

    Wonderful, wonderful summary, as always. I’m so glad you had great good times with Virginia. And if you had asked I would have told you to avoid any and all things involving Carol Kane.

    wonderful! loved to ride along, all included. wouldn’t miss every bite of poultry and thoughts of Hookerdom or muffin tasting dicks!! no doubt the long hours travelling were worth every minute of your stay in London – even the lousy play!!
    I am sure the familiy got a light headed Jocleyn back !
    and by the way – you have such a lovely tan!!

  6. Wow, you crammed a whole lotta fun into that trip!

    I got all choked up AGAIN when you walked in on Virginia. Wonderful trip, and oh how the memory of this is going to keep you very, very warn on a Wisconsin morning when you’re ninety.
    You know that email that went around the universe a few years back about grabbing life by the tail and just hanging on tight…wild ride and all that? I think you wrote it, Or else your best friend wrote it while thinking ‘Gee, what is it about Jocelyn that makes her so aliiiiiive?’
    Terrific travelogue. I’m so impressed that you manage to stuff all your readers into your carry-on bag and take us with you. So much fun when the experience feels first-hand!

  8. Spotted Dick is always funny. Don’t care WHO you are.
    Bummer about the second play, but you had a bagful of GOODIES and SHAKESPEARE’S GARDEN AND BEER AND honey, I’m glad you went, saw, conquered and blogged the tale so we could enjoy/envy vicariously.

    I love reading your blog! What a suprise and a shock your friend must’ve had when you walked into the restaurant. Such fun photos of your trip.The beginning paragraphs and your description of London made me laugh…. so true, girl, so true…. and I should know… I live here…London is like a box of chocolates you never know what you are going to get… it can be a maddening mess or the most fabulous sunny, beautiful, white wine soaked afternoon that’ll stay in your heart forever….
