Postcards from England: Christmas 2016 – Hamleys Toy Store

Dear Readers,

It’s Saturday, and Hamleys in London is bustling with shoppers.  And to add to the excitement — demos and wowsers of all kinds.  From magic erasable boards to flying airplanes, boomerangs, and bubbles. When it all came down to The Purchase, though, we brought home an old fave — Paddington Bear!

Ah, shopping in London,

–Rusha and Bert

    1. Oh, the Places We See

      There was a lot of queueing all over London — and not just for Paddington. It was a packed city, and we thrived on the excitement of the crowds and the lights and the city itself. Now, we’d love to do something like this every Christmas — it put us in the spirit! Hope your Christmas is merry, and your new year is oh, so wonderful!

        Our five grandsons are providing the spirit for us this year. Now, where’s the eggnog! Here’s wishing you and Bert a great Holiday season as well, Rusha. –Curt

It makes our day to hear from you.
