Call with Reg

September 19, 2007

At the usual half 7, I called Reg to see about a swim tomorrow.  I was pretty sure that we weren’t based on the information on and, but I called none the less.  It was a short call.  He just stated to call back tomorrow night.  We are still looking at the window between Friday-Saturday.


I think tomorrow’s activities following the swim may be heading to Ashford or the British War Memorial or…who knows.  The day in Canterbury was spent mostly at the cathedral and then wandering around the shops.  We did stop for tea and snacks at the Tiny Tim’s Tea Room.  (Thanks for the suggestion Nick!)  I know that it was probably referring to the Tiny Tim in the Dickens’ novel, but I couldn’t help thinking “Tip Toe through the Tulips.”


Here are some photos for entertainment:

And for the final photo, a contest.  Can you guess what this is?

    A row of brand new shopping tolleys photographed while drunk, from an odd angle?

  3. Alex thought maybe hangers. Jacob said a chihuahua course he was laughing while saying this. He thought also hangers, same with Matthew. Guess they were listening to Alex. I thought maybe shopping baskets or chairs stacked.

    I think the picture of the odd shiny stuff is a Fresnell (sp?) lens on a lighthouse.

    During a visit to Prague many years ago there was a scupture to protest the arrival of all the western like structures: McDonald’s, malls, you know the drill. It was a 12 ft tall combination of shopping carts. You pictures reminded me of a close up of that.
    by the way: in my fitness classess this morning we did extra forward crawls, breat strokes, and back strokes in honmage to you and your swim which I am sure will be tomorrow. I have about 72 people in two fitness classes and they are all pulling for you!
    It’s 9:30 Thurs. nite for you. I’m guessing you’re getting up early and getting in the water. Go, Macy, Go!
