Nottingham: Searching for Robin Hood?

Happy Snoopy Dance
We’ve finished with the book event and are still with Ruth in Nottingham. As always, she is a lovely host, even when I keep soaking her bathroom floor (as happens when there’s no actual shower door). She’s been known to worry about having guests barge into her home before, but there’s nothing more we could ask for.

We’ll be heading up to Scotland tomorrow. Alas, Glasgow’s having a heat wave so it’s in the 70s, but I’m hopeful for temps in the 50s soon. {dance dance dance} (Hey, where we’re from we’ve had like 40 days over 100 already this year.)

I’ve never been to Scotland before so am very excited about this. It’s nifty to go to a new place, it’s amazing to finally go some place you’ve read and heard about—AND that’s been a setting for a great many books you’ve read, and it’s so wonderful to be visiting places over here that are so steeped in history.

We’re just VERY glad to have missed Splendour, this mobbed outdoor music festival that happened yesterday about three or four miles outside of town. LOTS of people and we weren’t there. Yay! (Well, okay, Stacia’s a bit bummed that we missed Blondie, but Ruth and I just keep looking at the crowd pictures and being glad that we weren’t there.)
