In Montreal, between, visiting, taking John's Mum shopping and running errands, there was not much time for blogging. However, I did manage to get the blog finished, pictures chosen, cropped and colour-corrected, not by Christmas as I'd planned, but before New Years. However, since the writing was done in bits and pieces, while doing a number of other things, and checked by John periodically (sort of says John,mea culpa), we both missed some rather glaring- and embarassing- errors.
Corrections, then: Firstly, Murder She Wrote starred Angela Lansbury, who played Jessica Fletcher [thanks Gil and Judy, and Carol]; secondly, we saw many interesting Joshua trees in the desert around Barstow, and on the way to Las Vegas [thanks Les].

So a couple of lessons have been learned: plan trips back to the cold north, landing where your clothes are, and don't try to write a blog -or anything else- in the midst of doing a lot of other things.
We have another week before we fly back to Las Vegas and Barstow, and continue our travels to San Diego. Run-Around-Sue will be all fixed, the new batteries will be longer-lasting, and the weather will be warmer!
