HI LIZ, THIS HEAT IS NOT LETTING UP, I TRIED SITTING OUT YESTERDAY FOR AWHILE BUT IT EVEN GOT TOO MUCH FOR ME. I PITY ANYONE WHO DOSEN'T HAVE AIR CONDITION.
THE FOOD AT THE FESTIVAL WAS POLISH SAUSAGE & SAURKRAUT, I DON'T REALLY LIKE EITHER ONE BUT I WAS SO HUNGRY I FORCED THE SAUSAGE AND GAVE MYSELF INDIGESTION THE REST OF THE DAY :D

I'M GLAD TO HEAR YOUR PAIN HAS EASED,  :-*

RUBY,  I LIKE BOTH THOSE THINGS BUT THEY DON'T LIKE ME.  THE SAURKRAUT I HAVE TO STAY IN AFTER EATING IT HA.   I PITY THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE AIR ESPECIALLY IN APARTMENTS.  IT MUST BE HELL IF YOU LIVE UP HIGH.   THE FORECAST SAYS IT'S COMING DOWN A BIT BUT THE HUMIDITY KEEPS IT UP.  MY SISTER SAYS  IT WAS  NOT SO GOOD THERE, BELFAST,  IT WAS RAINING, SO WHAT'S NEW HA.   WE NEED THE RAIN FOR THE POOR GRASS.  I HAD THOUGHT OF SITTING  ON THE BALCONY BUT  I CAN'T STAND THAT HEAT OR HUMIDY AND EVEN THOUGH I'M INSIDE  WITH AIR, MY HANDS FEEL PUFFED UP, I CAN TELL ANYWAY BY THE RINGS BEING TIGHT.  NOUGH  COMPLAINING HA.  HOW'S EVERYONE  BACK HOME RUBY.   I  HOPE THEY ARE KEEPING WELL.   LOVE LIZ :-*

Hello!
Well,its cooled down over here a little-thankfully from my point of view!We have had some much needed rain-
but its still nice weather for those on holiday-and of course for the children still on their school holidays.

Jean when do the children go back to school in Canada?As you know,here its around the 4th September.I am sure
you love having the wee ones but they are rather a handful!

Ruby-that`s good news about Eileen-she really has got tremendous benefit from her time with you both and of
course meeting up on the Washington trip with the others.I had a laugh at the thought of you and Bobby taking off
to Spain from Canada for a break!
You had already had a `gallivant`around your own area of the World, and of course all the entertaining that comes
with having guests-family or not-it is a lot of work ,and your out of your way of going for want of a better expression!

No,I have never been to Venice.The first time I went abroad the package deals had just started.It was 1964 and I went on
my own to Majorca for a fortnight.How that came about was-the boyfriend at that time and myself were to go to stay
with his sister in Scotland and also tour about.I `fell out` as we used to say-with him a few weeks before.
In those days we had to book our holidays in work in January-so I was going to be hanging around home for my 2 weeks.
So,my Daddy-who was the light of my life -understood this and when I asked him about going away myself he took me
into the City to a Travel Agency where he knew a man there.
This man asked me what \I wanted in the holiday-I said I want sun and somewhere there are young people!So he decided
Majorca was the place for me!a
So Daddy leaves me up to Aldergrove,I fly to London,then got myself on the plane to Palma.Arrived at the hotel at
around 4.00 am-could not speak a word of Spanish-the Nightporter could not speak any English-other to say `Passport`
you get Reception later.
Well,I had been told never to give up my Passport to anyone-so he and I were at loggerheads on that -until eventually
I had to leave it with him and go to my room as I was exhausted.
Unpacked -but sleep was out of the question worrying about the Passport.At 8.30 I was down to Reception asking for it!
Of course,no problem-but I of course had no idea this was the form when one arrived in the early hours in those days.
I phoned home later and when Mummy heard I had a room with two beds in it she nearly had a fit-thinking I might
have someone else joining me!
I did feel very embarrassed having breakfast at my wee table on my own.However,went into the bar for a coffee later
and down at the bottom of the room were about 30 young people like myself.There was a record player and they were
having a great time-10 am!A girl came up to the Bar for cigarettes and she said to me-in a Manchester accent-ČAre you
on your own`-yes said I-`well come and join us then`!
That was me for the fortnight!It was such a great holiday and it was the start of me holidaying on my own.
You`ll be sorry Ruby you asked me about having been to Venice!!!

Liz I hope your getting nearer the time to getting sorted at the Dentist -and that the pain has been held in abeyance by
the tablets your taking.
I think your right to stay in your Apartment rather than move -as you said that one does not have all the storage you
need-and anyway the hassle of moving does not bear thinking about !

Well,must go now-and let you folk `get your heads showered`!
Take care.
Jillian  :-*

JILLY, I REALLY ENJOYED YOUR STORY AND I THOUGHT YOU WERE VERY BRAVE TO GO  TO A STRANGE PLACE ON YOUR OWN, I'M GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD TIME. I USE TO GO TO THE PICTURES ON MY OWN BUT I GUESS THAT'S NOT THE SAME HA.   I WENT DOWN TO SEE THE  APARTMENT AGAIN WITH MY FRIEND WHO THINKS I SHOULD TAKE IT.  THEY ALL SAY THERE IS  NO PRESURE BUT  MAYBE WITHOUT KNOWING IT THEY ARE PRESURING ME.   SO I REALLY HAVE TO THINK HARD.  THE THOUGHT OF MOVING AGAIN  IS TOO MUCH, MY FRIEND SAYS THEY WILL HELP ME BUT ?      KEEP THOSE STORIES COMING GIRL.   LIZ :-*
