Mouser tree

London

So, surprise surprise, I have cousins in London, England. My Dad spoke to me today to tell me that he'd been in contact with the family in Great Britain.

Dad has a distant cousin who lives in London. She's married with kids. She was on a bus when the bombings occured. The vehicle stopped, unloaded everyone, and she spent 45 minutes walking home.

Her husband normally takes the Tube into work. His stop is one of the ones bombed. For some reason, he had to drive in to work that day, and managed to not be blown up.

Their kids were all either out of the country or out in the country, and weren't at risk.

Whew!
