You will have noted that people do not figure heavily on my website, and certainly do not do so on Cindy’s; our presence, or that of others, in front of icons of international travel are scant. So, the recorded events of 31 May 2014 presented a problem: who to process and which website? ... I won!

The next dilemma was whether to select the best two dozen images or the best 500, but as Louise and Tell did outstanding work and we asked all our guests to contribute, it seemed only fair to be generous! Thank you to all for your contributions.

Some are captioned, some are not, and the last gallery is a mere taster, more may appear if I ever get time. It may now seem like a lifetime ago, but I hope the galleries bring back some happy memories for those who were there – they certainly do for us. For others, we hope that you get a feel for a joyous occasion and enjoy the story.

Cindy returned to the US two weeks ago – as she jetted West from Heathrow, I jetted East to Pisa and thence drove on into the mountains in the very North of Tuscany. Ignoring the Airbus cockpit security door flying open with great violence as we hard landed, the odd angle at which we skittered along the runway and driving a small manual Alfa in soaring temperatures – that was just the Italian drivers – it was a great trip. A big birthday, fantastic food, great local wine and dramatic scenery, but it is now back to the reality of waiting patiently for the USCIS to get its act together.

OK, I promised to spare you yet more of my rantings about immigration!

Mind you, I still have the images from the honeymoon, Africa last October and quite a few thousand in between to sort, which could easily take me 15 months at this rate.



But no … calm thoughts, positive karma and constructive projects are the goal. That, and the 5/2 diet.

Wish me luck.
