The Sun Sets...

... on our time together ...

 

Frank leaves again tomorrow - back to England.

Not sure when he'll be back - it depends on what happens with

getting the house sold there.   In the meantime - I have so many

amazing memories of our adventures, how much fun we have

together, and how lucky I am to be married to this wonderful man!

This is a fascinating set of images, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray! Fun trying to get them!
Ah yes...I remember not being able to see for a while after trying to take this shot ! Don't you worry my love, once the estate in England is sold, and I move into the gate house, I shall return to claim the U.S. back....X
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Fun working on it, though, huh?!
We'll be anxiously awaiting your return! XOX

Fabulous series of pictures. It is fun to 'play' with the sun.
I hope that all goes your way fast and that the house is sold soon.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Astrid! As long as you don't blind yourself! smile
Thank you, Astrid. This is all getting really old, the more time we spend together, the worse it is when we're apart.
Fabulous starburst in that first image, Elizabeth...and with the wee trees at the top to give perspective!

Many prayers for you and Frank as you continue to navigate this Journey. Is he able to hire a management company to do the selling for him??? Or is that too costly?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ginnie!
And thank you for the prayers - we need them. We have an Estate Agent - similar to the US Real Estate Agents... but in England they don't seem to do much. We're getting ready to switch companies, in fact, because while Frank was in the US - there were a couple people that viewed the house. We found out that, although our agent set up the appointments through Jane (Franks ex & BFF...) as we'd asked them to - the agency didn't bring the client to the house - they showed up and JANE showed them around! NOT what we're paying for! They don't get paid until the house sells, but you'd think they'd actively want to do something! So the problem remains in leaving the house empty. We've decided not to rent it, because you can't show / sell a house with renters in place. Not fair to anyone. We may end up having to get a security system linked to the police and with camera's that we can view from over here. At any rate - we're talking about Frank coming back in January. So... we'll be apart for the next three months. :-(

Such grand scenery

Tell Frank it's starting to get cold hereabouts now..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Too true.

I can't tell you, enough, how much he hated leaving. The sunshine here is getting into his bones!
Spectacle impressionnant !!
Merci
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so kindly!

Gobsmacked! Yes, your memories will help you, good that you have had together this wonderful time!
I wonder that there is not an honest broker who could do all the selling business?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Philine! The more time we spend together, I'm afraid, the more difficult it is to be apart. We do have what they call an estate agent. But the problem is in leaving the house empty. Not safe to do that. We may end up setting up a security system that is linked to the police, and that has cameras we can view from here. It'll be expensive - but if no one is interested in the next few months, it will be worth it.

I love your point of view, ideally positioned to get the sun through the gap. How anything grows on the rock is beyond me.

I hope that Frank gets the house sold quickly, as I'm sure you do. I think really Frank misses his weekly coffee with Mick Shaw and checking out his new kit smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Alan! We waited for it! smile Those rock plants are incredible!

Someone is looking at the house tomorrow - I'm saying prayers that this will be the one! I'm sure that the big draw to England is Mick and his collection... but the more time we spend together, the more difficult the parting... plus - the Arizona sunshine is REALLY getting into his bones! smile

A last peak of the day.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: And a very good one!
Fabulous shots, Elizabeth, all of them! I am sorry to hear Frank leaves again. I thought he was back for good.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary!
This house thing has really got us down... nothing is moving in England because of Brexit. We just can't leave the house empty for lengths of time. If there's no interest in the next few months we'll have to go to the expense of setting up a security system linked to the police that we can monitor from here.
Some fine photos Elizabeth. I obviously wasn't aware Frank was coming back so soon, but I guess if he wants to sell his house and pack up then he can't be in two places at the same time. I'm sure we all hope it won't be too long before you're together for all time.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian!
It's a real pain. Getting us both down. Keep us in your prayers!

You slotted it perfectly in that top picture.

Don't overdo the farewelling ...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Louis!
No such thing...
great presentation Elizabeth... i like the first one... it is similar ti the sunset in the volcano that i poster this week...

i'm sorry that Frank is leaving for England today...
hopefully it will be for a short time....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Peter! I do see what you mean!
We just have to get that house sold!
Great shot, Elizabeth - I'm sure Frank'll be back as fast as he can smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Tom!
Just got to get that house sold!
