March 2-9, 2002 found thirteen cousins from the USA traveling to England for a week to meet their family. We flew together from Detroit Metropolitan Airport to London Gatwick Airport. We spent two fun days taking in the sights of London. Most of that group had never been to England or even across “The Pond”. Wednesday Morning of that week, two very special cousins from Oxford rented a minibus and came to London to pick us up and drive us out to Cranham, Painswick and the Villages of our Ancestors. The minibus was filled with stories of all the fun we had experienced so far on the trip. I smiled and said I felt another “book” in the works with all the fun stories of this trip. The driver and our cousin from England immediately responded that if there was a book about the trip, it had to be called, “Wiggles On Tour”. Sure enough, not many weeks after returning home another photo journal was in the making and it was called, “Wiggles On Tour
Besides our time with the tourists spots in London, we visited Kingham, Cranham, Painswick, met many family members for the first time and had an awesome farewell dinner at the RAF Club (Royal Air Force) in London on Friday Night, ” It was a week none of us will ever forget!
