We miss everyone too. You could always come and visit!! The Wolves and Ducks will forever be great friends I think and all or any will always be welcome here. I miss waking up to the sound of the toys playing upstairs, Christian is such a honey. Elizabeth has a rare talent for art and we would love to show her round the galleries and the sculpture park where our Christmas photo on the fridge was taken.

well, I'm sorry to say " they got to enjoy some American hospitality" since they were horn-swoggled by their rental car company, lost in NYC, stuck in traffic, burglarized and had a stretch of rainy, depressing horrible weather - but CAN say I was glad to meet them all, and sincerely hope that they managed to have a good time despite all.

Good thing they didn't have Jack with them on the entire trip though...who knows what added complications he would have raised!

The Ducks have gone from our house south east to Mystic Seaport for two days .That would put them on the plane either this afternoon or tomorrow . Its easy for me to loose time so Im a bad one to talk . I thought they said they were getting on the plane Saterday afternoon but that wouldnt give them 2 days in Mystic witch is the main thing I remember them saying !! . If theeyr hotel room had hook up Geoff said he would let us all know how they were doing .. I think the twins will like the aquarium if they find the time. Its on the same ticket so I hope they get there as well . Happy QUACKING !!

Guy - the chimes of the clock commonly known as 'Big Ben' are called 'Westminster Chimes' and are nearly always reproduced wrongly!

However... today and tomorrow, until 4pm, they won't be heard at all - The chimes are 'closed for maintenance' - first time they've been silenced for 20 years, for repair and cleaning. I hope they find the time to retune them too... one of them is slightly out and makes me wince every time I hear it!

Hope the Ducks are OK.

Cet I concure . We gave them the best matrasses we had for the floor in the music room and not one complaint ! Molly and Rowen slepped near their feet ( At least at the begining of the evening ).
                Maddy and Elizabeth had a really great connection . They went off with an art teacher to have a look at an Alexander Calder exhibit at a local museum . Lots of stuffed animals were exchanged who are now imigrating to Briton with the Ducks .
               But to have the chance to sit and play music in quantity in the eveings was just what was needed. We actually found ourselves doing early Fairport Convention, I showed Geoff one of my faverites from the 60's : " Truck Drivers Queen" a classic . He had notes I didnt remember for Maddy Groves (Jane had every verse) and black Leg Minor or SkewBAll . Lots of Morris tunes as well . I sent Geoff home with a "Humanatone" that I hope makes it out at some aproppriate moment at the right session. Just ask and I am shore he will give you a demonstration of this inportant American traditional instroment .
               It was also great fun to hear about so many mudcatters from them .
                The perfect house guests and as we said a few minutes ago as they got in their car this will not be the last time we gett togtether.
                As always in these moments it is time to thank MAX again .. What magic can happen when like minded people get together and Max you really have made a vehicle for helping THAT to happen ..
                  All the best , Guy

Thanks to Artoush the Armenian autobody guy (Art's Collision Services [no kidding], corner Heron Road and Kaladar Avenue, Ottawa), the Ducks are winging down the 417 to Ormestown and Beer. Nobody slept very soundly last night -- too much tension yesterday -- but despite the continuing rain today's omens look good.

The Ottawa police were their usual sweet, efficient selves. Constable Jason Savoury was responding to a complaint about grafitti when he found two of the four stolen Duck suitcases in the schoolyard where the thieves had dumped them. He delivered them to our front door on his way back to the station at the end of his patrol shift. Geoff and the kids recovered a few more items during two sweeps of the neighbourhood; Mollie is very proud of having found her sock. Best of all, nothing of significance was lost -- except, of course, a good night's sleep and a day in Ormestown with Beer and family.

What were the good things that happened? Let's see: Edmund leading the flock down Parliament Hill with a twin by each hand, birdlike voices reaching us on the damp breeze. Maddy in the Peace Tower: "Is there a reason why that clock looks so much like Big Ben?" Chocolate ice cream at three meals. Fuller's London Pride (voted Britain's best ale) at The Royal Oak, and several rounds of "Who Am I? 20 Questions". Try to imagine Maddy as Hitler ... Rowan as David Beckham is a little more likely.

By the way: You will know your day has taken a sharp left turn if you ever find yourself calling the police dressed only in a towel and a light coating of bathwater.

Unfortunately dawn in Ottawa brought the discovery that our rental car had been broken into and pillaged. Some of our laundry has been recovered but we now have no rear quarter light. The rental company say we cannot have it repaired but must return the vehicle to the nearest office for a replacement - that being JFK airport!!! We are hoping to have temporary repairs done and carry on as planned but it is a real pain in the a***. We will keep folk informed if you are expecting us as there may be delays but hopefully not.
