I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the family is still here and we are having a blast. The bad news is I slipped on some wet stairs yesterday and tweaked my back.  I’ve always had back problems and this didn’t help. But now I don’t have to take my turn carrying the backpack during our adventures. Since my back is sore I won’t be popping onto the computer much over the rest of the family visit. See you in a couple of weeks.  I wish you all well.

This photo is of Tower Bridge and you can see that the Olympic spirit has arrived in London. I need to try to snap a photo when the sky isn’t so cloudy.
