    Rounding out his US trip in Boston, Massachusetts, Owen reports in once again. The Bunker Hill Monument is featured. Although the card notes this is his fourth submission, this is just the third one I received from Owen with no others to date. Hopefully Chicago's postal service hasn't eaten the missing postcard.

    Photo of musket fire demo at Bunker Hill Memorial.
    He was depicting a rebel / Patriot volunteer , depending on your point of view.
    We kept quiet when he asked where we were from until an American lady pointed at us & said loudly, ''They're from England!''

    Chicago's postal service is awful. It might take a month or more, or might not show up at all.

    Cannot wait for Xenforo.

    There are 294 steps to the top of the memorial.
    Legs felt it after we came down.
    Last went up there in 1995 on honeymoon, weird going back with the 3 children.
