TRAVELING

I have just returned from a month's trip to see my daughter and grandchildren in Singapore. We had a side visit to Bali, and five days sailing in Thailand. It was a wonderful trip, but I am worn out by the 32 hour plane trip. I will write some more about this, meanwhile enjoy the photos. Ames

Thanks Ames,

I do sell a lot of books and especially patterns not only to the UK but in So. Africa, Australia, Canada, and Europe. The trick is getting the word out. If I had the money I'd go exhibit them at Crufts. I have a friend who's a British judge who wants me to come over.
