London and Let's Go Home!

Hello, Dear Ones! I want to thank you all who went along with me on our English trip. This is the very last post, I promise, as you're probably sick of this stuff! :)
 We drove the rent car to the Heathrow air port and returned it. We had reserved a room at the Hilton for two days at the air port so we could get to our plane to come home easily. It was really neat because there was an enclosed walkway from our hotel into the air terminal. I guess you've figured it out, we like Hiltons and we like trains. In the air terminal is the tube and we took it a couple of times into the heart of London. 
 Of course we went smack to Piccadilly Circus and you've never seen so many folks! Everywhere.
 You never know what you're going to see! ;) He wore the flag beautifully.
 This is the London Eye. We were going to ride it but if you look really close on the right hand side you'll see some of the line. Now triple that and you'll know how long the line was. Never mind! ;)
 So we amused ourselves by walking around and snapping. We've been to London a few times but it's always nice to see it again. Big Ben! :) Tick tock.
 A quick view of St. Paul's Cathedral right next to Big Ben.
 It just happened to be the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain and we ran into this little man you see above. We were walking by and Mr. Precious saw all of his medals and stopped to thank him for his service. The little man was just thrilled! He was 95 years old, had been a fighter pilot in the war and was shot down. He was just loving talking to us and we certainly enjoyed talking to him!
Here's one last snap! We would be hopping onto our airplane later that day and as nice as our trip was, I was ready to get home! I missed you all so much. Now I've got to hurry up and get my Fall decorating done. Thanks again for all of your comments - I love hearing from you all.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

England Swings

 England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben
The rosy-red cheeks of the little children
Now, if you huff and puff and you finally save enough
Money you can take your family on a trip across the sea
Take a tip before you take your trip, let me tell you where to go
Go to Engeland, oh
England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben
The rosy-red cheeks of the little children
Mama's old pajamas and your papa's mustache
Falling out the window sill, frolic in the grass
Tryin' to mock the way they talk fun but all in vain
Gaping at the dapper men with derby hats and canes
England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben
The rosy-red cheeks of the little children
England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben
The rosy-red cheeks of the little children
