A Hillbilly in Piccadilly Circus

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Dear BOTB Readers:

My apologies for the gap in posts here at Bill of the Birds. Geez, I get a swank new header for the BOTB blog homepage and immediately abandon my post. In fact, I fled the country.

I've spent the past six days in the UK attending the British Birdwatching Fair. While there, when I had Internet access, I did not have me bloody laptop with me. And when . . . well, you know the story, mate. I should just shut me ol' piehole and get back to bloggin'.

The BirdFair was great, the people friendly, the pubs quaint, and the weather, well the weather was quintessentially English--mostly rainy and cool.

I'll have a few posts to share about the BirdFair, but until then, I'll leave you with a photo taken of a hillbilly in Piccadilly Circus, deep in the heart of London.

I can see how this could have turned into an international incident. They didn't let you drive did they?

No, I had a driver for the entire trip so Merry Olde England was safe from my NASCAR-like driving technique.

Hmmm...your title sounds like a cast off from a Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court. Did you see any birds while there? Or just birders?

How mush does YOUR life suck? In the UK. Jeez.
Geoff and I went there on our honeymoon, and right where you are standing, I think, is where we almost got hit by a double-decker bus. It was fabulous.

If you need someone to take over your road trips to other countries, tropical forest, etc.. while you are blogging, my hand is up!

[irony] I know that traveling to the largest birding event in the world is rough duty, but somehow I know you'll soldier through [/irony]

When you get back, just in case things are too quiet, I've tagged you into the seven question birding meme: http://www.bornagainbirdwatcher.com/2007/08/seven-birding-question-meme.html.

Cheers mate!
