I’m back from my extended visit with my son Ian in England and his lovely family. I enjoyed my beautiful grandchildren: Jehanne, Jarl,
Aleston, and Emberlee.
I was able to attend his wedding to Sam, his second wife, but a wonderful woman. She drove me around her native Yorkshire while he was working for Comcast (Sky – In England). It was late and the castle closing but I was able to tread the very same path that the Duke of Newcastle walked at his castle, Bolsover. The Duke of Newcastle was credited as being the father of modern dressage. He was also a teacher of the young Princes, Charles (later Charles II) and James (James I) Stuart. https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x487999eb9d5aa607%3A0x93eb0188c556b34f!3m1!7e115!4shttps%3A%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipMu16OrGr2t8_8l1HUGWahaaSWAFjdM0v5wYMHT%3Dw390-h220-k-no!5sbolsover%20castle%20-%20Google%20Search!15sCAQ&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipMu16OrGr2t8_8l1HUGWahaaSWAFjdM0v5wYMHT&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj1td3WicrmAhWRT98KHSLkAKUQoiowHXoECBAQBg#
So, I’m back after a very nice and fun wedding at Bolton Castle. Everyone was in Medieval dress. There was a period sit-down meal accompanied by Minstrels. Then there was music and dancing–and the DJ even sang “Coming to America” for me!
I also saw him graduate with his Masters to be a researcher in fertility.
Pictures to follow as soon as I download them from phone and iPad.
