By now a few days have gone by since we returned from our tour to England and Scotland and it’s time for me to leave a “sign of life” 😉 here in my blog.
We really had a great time and we enjoyed our travelling a lot, but after 29 days on the road we were really happy to be home again. Towards the end of our tour we actually were longing – in a way – for our Karnes City again. Yes, believe it or not, you can actually long for this little southern Texas town. 😉 Well, it must be because we’re at home here. As the saying goes, “East or West, home is best!” I can only agree to that.
Well, southern Texas has us back, and we certainly had to get accustomed again to the heat and humidity around here, after cool and sometimes outright cold “merry old England” [and Scotland, of course, wasn’t any warmer either]. When we arrived on Wednesday, it was fairly good here, at lower than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, for the middle of June in southern Texas that was kind of cold. But the coming week will have real Texas summer temperatures again, maxxing out around 95 Fahrenheit. Well, as I’ve found out in the news this morning, Germany will have a hot spell like that in the upcoming week, with temperatures there reaching 95 degrees fahrenheit, too. But theirs will not last that long as ours. Here we’ll probably have two months of that heat.
Talking of our tour: as said in a previous entry in this blog, I had planned to give a day-by-day account. But meanwhile I’ve changed my mind. I don’t know yet if, how, when and where I’m going to write about our trip. Let’s just wait and see.
By the way, we were really happy, on arrival, to find everything was well, especially that all our animals were present still. That’s always our main concern when we’re travelling. Well, we were not so much concerned about the doggies, as they had been with our vet, Dr. Patton, but the cats had been outside all the time and thus we were really happy when all of them showed up alive and well.

Holidays are important for recreation, but also come home.
Thanks, dear Rhythm, for the welcome! 🙂
Home, sweet home : )
Aber “home, sweet home, Texas” – nicht “Alabama”. 😉 Und eigentlich müsste es ja heißen, “home, hot home!” 😉
Stimmt : )
Thanks, and have a great weekend.
