Everything is fine, so far, I've seen the town of Hertford, thats was 5 minutes of fun. So far, I have restrung Leadfinger's banjo, and according to Jacqui, I neatly and tenderly tuned her guitar.

That was Kendall's report. Sin - I'm taking great care of him (we wnat our deposit back - we're a poor nation! - so am making sure he's well looked after. I promised him that I'd take him to Soho to see the sights - more interesting than Hertford! Further report to follow when we have time.

Sorry Sorcha. I have been a bit disoriented lately. Comes from getting hit on the head with a desk, I guess.


And on the home front: What in the world have you taught this dog, Kendall? I woke up in the middle of the night (my bed was lurching around) to find Seamus flat on the floor under my bed. Seems he wanted to sleep in my room but Ed the cat was at the foot of the bed. Having dealt more than once with Ed's nasty attitude and nastier claws, Seamus decided to go across the room under the bed rather than walk past the cat. BUT as with the desk in the stairwell, the dog didn't fit. And I had to move storage carts filled with spare blankets and sheets to get him out. Wish you could have seen the evil gleam in Ed's eyes. It appears his sole purpose in life is humiliating the dog. Wish he could do it during day light hours.

I thought Kendall might decide to fund his trip with some busking or CD sales. Never thought of him as a male prostitute. And the old joke: "Would you got to bed with me for $100,000?" Finish it Captain...

Ya know Kendall. Once, some years ago, I thought of a neat career change. I thought about becoming a male prostitute, but that idea was short lived. One of my previous wives, or ladies, I forget which, suggested that I'd probably earn what I was worth ... and I'd starve to death!!!! Oh well. CHEERS, Bob

Reminds me of the guy who came home and found his wife packing a suitcase. He asked "What are you doing?" and she said, "I hear that in Chicago, I can get $50.00 a pop for what I give you for free."
He started packing too, and she said, "What are yu doing"? he said, "I'm going to follow you and see how you can live on $50..00 a mont"

To finish Sinsull's joke,

He: Would you go to bed with me for $100,000
She: Why, certainly.
He: Would you go to bed with me for £10 ?
She: (indignantly) What sort of girl do you think I am?
He: We've determined that, now I'm haggling!


And just to clarify the comment above by MMario:
sounds like Kendall - flashing his presidents at the ladies.
Franklin was only President of Pennsylvania, I believe he's the only person to appear on the front of a current US banknote (US= bill) not to have been President of the US of A (but I'm open to correction)

On thi sside of the water, the punch line has been told as "We've already established that; now we're quibbling about the price!".

From the USGoc site on currency:

rrency that is in circulation today? Whose portraits were included on currency notes that are no longer produced?


United States currency notes now in production bear the following portraits: George Washington on the $1 bill, Thomas Jefferson on the $2 bill, Abraham Lincoln on the $5 bill, Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, Ulysses S. Grant on the $50 bill, and Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill.


There are also several denominations of currency notes that are no longer produced. These include the $500 bill with the portrait of William McKinley, the $1,000 bill with a portrait of Grover Cleveland, the $5,000 bill with a portrait of James Madison, the $10,000 bill with a portrait of Salmon P. Chase, and the $100,000 currency note bearing a portrait of Woodrow Wilson.

Kendall here, We didn't go to the Albert Hall, much too tired. But, we did got to a local session at the Great Eastern Pub in Hertfor

Yesterday, we went to Stonehenge, today we went to Glastonbury, Avebury and Camelot.

Jacqui here

Thursday we went local to Hatfield House - to show Kendall that what we call 'ancient' is well over 200 years old (well, most of the other visitors were!)

At the moment Kendall is trying to tune up my other guitar but there's a screw loose in my G string and we can't find it - looks like a fun evening!!!

Kendgall here - we had a good night's sleep and are raring to go. Keep stirring the pot!

Jacqui here - I'm just going to feed him breakfast and a roast dinner to satisfy the inner man and then it's practice with that banjo (sweet music!) ready for tonight.

SOunds like everything is going about normal for a couple of colonists off to meet their ENglish cousins!

Nigel, also, the $10,000 bill was another American currency with a non-president, Salmon P Chase, secretary of the Treasury in 1863. I don't have cause to see many of these bills.

It was wonderful to meet both Kendall (at whose feet I fell!) and Sorcha - the evening at the Black Lion was so good, the landlord has asked for more!

Kendall is one mean banjo player - and that's from someone who dislikes the banjo slightly less than the melodeon!

Sorcha on the fiddle was amazing - interesting to hear the American slant on some familiar tunes.

I hope the rest of the trip is as much fun as this evening was!

The session was wonderful and as Liz said the landlord wants us back!! So there will be a session in the Black Lion on Sunday 25th April from 7:30pm.

It was absolutely grand to see so many catters turn up to meet our American friends.

After the session a number of us came back to our place and continued conversations and drinking!

Pictures have been taken and will be posted soon!!

Tanks again to all of you for coming.

Just to say that Linda and I picked up Sorcha from Micca & Khatt last night and took her to the session at "The Cricketers" in Greenwich where she seemed to have a great time. We left her sleeping in the caravan this morning - I think she needed it after Hastings over the weekend.

Kendall is, at present, traversing the Atlantic by way of Halifax. His flight arrives in Boston some time after seven tonight E.S.T. By the time he gets home he's going to be one tired puppy but I think he had a good time.

Sorcha's due to leave for Chester this afternoon. She was still asleep in the caravan when Linda and I left for work this morning - let's hope that she wakes up in time to catch her train from the local station (Mottingham). She then has to use the tube to get from Charing Cross to Euston, where she picks up her train to Chester.

Enjoyed having you staying with us Sorcha - hope to see you again before you go back to the States.

Finally made it to Emma's place near Chester......only got lost on the tube once. Missed my 16:00 connecting train because there were no escalators and I had to woman handle the case up 3 flights of stairs. Caught the next train and arrived an hour late. I was able to call Emma from Crewe to tell her not to abandon me. Doing Chester town tomorrow, then I don't know. I'm having a glorious time. This country is sooooo beautiful and everyone has been just wonderful to this poor lost Yooser! Whizzy, I fly home on May 25. I'll PM you in a bit. I'll be at Emma's place a few days so should be able to pick up your reply. The Hastings Giant thing is fabulous!! Talk about a crick in my neck, LOL!
