Ron and Betsey and Phil and I flew back to Chicago yesterday, 1/28, after ten wonderful days in England and Scotland. In addition to all the other activities they enjoyed, Ron and Betsey also had the thrill of staying a day and 1/2 just outside London with family friends she had not seen in 30 years!
After getting checked in at Heathrow Airport and going through all the legalities, we began the fun prospect of some shopping in the huge duty-free area at Heathrow. But, prior to that, another spontaneous picture -- we almost needed a can opener to extract Ron from the Bob the Builder engine! ha (What a good sport!) Bob the Builder has a devoted fan in Ron and Betsey's adorable grandson, so this engine had special meaning for them.

After "push back" from our Heathrow gate....

...another shot of planes, construction, and the tower.....

....and it's goodbye, green and beautiful England, once again (that is, for THIS time!).
