I know what you're thinking.

You're thinking: is that a woman carrying a naked, armless, headless mannequin through the street?

It is.

This will probably be my last post for a few weeks (and then expect a torrent) owing to an imminent trip across that there pond that separates the UK from the US. Washington, Boston, and New York await us and we're looking forward to seeing many highlights including Thanksgiving at first hand, the Patriots taking on Kansas at Gillette Stadium, a satellite due for launch next year being built, and even the delightful +Patricia Elizabeth in the flesh!

Unless the TSA probing is too much to bear. Then we'll cry and come straight back.

  1. Funny man. Even if the probing is too much to bear you better make it because I don't want to deal with the disappointment! Can't wait!

  2. Oh jealous of your trip! Planning mine for next year, a whole month if I am lucky! Can't wait to read about it when you get back.

  3. +Claire Pitt Yes, ESTAs were fairly straightforward; got them last month. What are your plans for the US next year? Relatives out there or just a bit of a nose?

  4. +Mark Hooper Have wanted to go back since I last went in 2008, when I stayed with random blog friends. Planning something similar and somehow ended up as an International judge at a Halloween ball in Salem, so will start there and then will be fitting in New York, Gettysburg, Pittsburgh, Niagra, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and then back to Salem, with time in Connecticut inbetween all that. Well that is a rough plan.

  5. Well apparently the hotel is haunted, not that I believe in such things, but I am looking forward to all things Halloween, American style 🙂 Hope you have an awesome time 🙂
