Hasta La Vista

Thanks, guys, for all the great book and music ideas. I leave tomorrow. My flight leaves Manchester at 11:30. After 8 hours I will arrive at Newark, where I'll hang around for three hours, then fly to Salt Lake City. I will arrive there at about 8 p.m. MDT or 3 a.m. GMT. I'll try to sleep, get up really early, visit the gym in the hotel, eat breakfast, catch the shuttle to the airport, pick up the car, then drive for five hours. Is there an easier way? Yeah, but it costs a lot more.

I spoke to my mother last night. She's ill again with another virus. I can't wait to get there and make her some chicken soup and give her some TLC. Hopefully, that's all she'll need.

With any luck, I'll be able to post from there.

Enjoy your drive! A good talking book will make the time pass faster than music. Music comes in 3 - 5 minute time periods and can be counted too easily. A book on the other hand gets you involved - especially a good one - and before you know it - you're there!!

I hope your mum is feeling better soon. She will be once you are there to help! I envy you that - believe me.

Oh no! I've just found you, and you live somewhere near me, and now you're off on some trek for who knows how long?!

Oh, well. Safe journey.
