With some trepidation, we have booked a flight to Manchester, England, leaving here at the end of May. Manchester is about 30 miles from Ormskirk, where our flat is.

Anybody know how to get a volcano to cooperate, other than throwing virgins into the crater? Elizabeth, at The Garden Window, has been keeping us up to date on the ash cloud. Many, many thanks to you, Elizabeth!

We'll go from there to Greece along about the middle of August, my idea being to get there in time for the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos on August 15. However, we didn't buy the tickets; Demetrios wants to, um, wing it. Decide later on exact plans.

Return flight to the USA is mid-November.

Our good neighbors will be looking after our house and collecting our mail.  By the way, Dickie, the one with hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver, is doing better.  Thanks again for your prayers and for the offers of help.  He still going to have to pay $689 for next month's pills, but after that, Medicare will be covering everything.

We'll be in Greece this summer but we'll be on a boat so we won't be in port very long in any one place. Wish it would have been possible to meet up. But since that is not likely, let's plan for a weekend in Fort Wayne once you get back. It will be time for another reunion.

Kalo Taxidi!

You needn't fly to Greece, you know. You can go to Italy and take the overnight ferry. I've done that from Germany - you'd just have to add the chunnel or a second ferry to your trip.
