Posting from Lunnon

We have been having a wonderful time in London!

Eric Square is the consumate host!

He even found a sale for the girls to visit this morning!

Here you see the ever-lovely basset ladies and Teka in line to enter Harvey Nichols - ready for the big sale.

Ummmmm ......yes, that is Lacie at the front of the line. She wanted to be first to get to some of the sale items, and she dressed to be able to try things on quickly. The bloomers you ask? Seems Mumsie has been kee
ping her in knickers since the last "incident" and she finds them quite comfortable.

Bouncing Bertie came down from Scotland for the day and tipped a few pints at the "Green Man" which is close enough to the shopping district so the ladies could find us, but far enough aw
ay that we did not have to offer opinions.

Like my kilt? When muzzer saw it, she thought it might be one of my Dad's family plaids. But my sissie "she who knows all" tells us that it is not th
e Davidson tartan, because it has no red. I like it anyway...and it was on sale!

Muzzer asked me to make a sentimental visit to this address for her. She goes every time she is in Lunnon, even though
Marks and Co. is no longer in business. She loved the book when she was an "itty bitty" and allows as how the movie of the same name was a "reasonable effort" to capture the spirit of the story.

We will have more to report later, but right now I need to go help Butcho figure out how to get all the packages on the plane.

This has been the BEST new year celebration. Getting to see Eric and Bertie and the basset girls and all the others just made the holidays perfect. It was JUST what we needed. (And maybe some of that stinky cheese will help grannnnmoma. Do ya think?)

It looks like you're all having a fabulous time in Lunnon! Maybe you can bag up all of the parcels and let them fly behind the plane? Better use extra rope. You gotta do what you gotta do, right?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

So...Lacie pretends to faint, but pops right back up...

My true concern is how the heck I look bigger than the basset aunties...HAVE YOU EVER SEEN HOW HOOGE A BASSET IS?

The Lacie is just a petite bit of canine....

I'm off to develop my pictures if I ever get them taken.

Glad you're having such a good time in Lunnon!

When you get a chance, could you please send me your snail mail address for the Excursion backpack you won?

You'll have to do a quick check of their website for the correct size and the color you want.: www.kyjen.com.
If you have any trouble deciding on size-please let me know. I have the size measurements that I can e-mail you.

Your buddy,

Yoohooo Gussie! Didn't we have a smashing time in the pub? But by golly that Lacie..being so mean to Miss Enid, eating some weird crackers with her stilton (mmmmmyummy we had stilton with cranberries in for Christmas in SD house) hasn't she heard of Bath Olivers? Then the worstest causing that eclipse when she bent over as she was waiting to go shopping in Harvey Nickers.

Thank dog us boys were able to sink a few and throw a few arrows in peace. You looked super smart in your kiltie Gussie...but any ideas why when we met up with the girlies you know who spent so long lying on the floor??
Wiry love Eric xxxx

Oh, dear old London taaahhhn! It's been a long, long time, and I'd love to go back one day. And that's a fine kilt, laddie. Not everyone's got the legs to pull that look off, but you are rockin' it.
