Not much to write about today. Woke up early, and perhaps a bit hungry, so went down for breakfast, then returned to my room for some extra sleep.

Was able to make some reservations for my trip to Germany in a couple of weeks. Also worked on figuring out travel plans from Germany to Italy. Then walked to McDonald’s for a couple of cheeseburgers and to Boots Pharmacy for more decongestant. Got a little turned around while walking back to the hotel but eventually made my way back. Every so often the GPS in my phone and I don’t see eye-to-eye. We’ll work it out later…

Booked a trip with a local taxi driver who will drive me around Liverpool and point out the main attractions. He will pick me up from this hotel on Sunday. A little more expensive than a bus tour, but I can learn so much more from someone who has lived here and knows the back stories and local history.

Took another nap before starting in on finishing blog posting for the past few days. Nice to know that my issue with loading pictures had more to do with a slow connection speed than any issue with the application or web hosting.

Received an email from the people who adopted my cat who let me know they took him to the vets yesterday. They came home from work and found him in pain. Looks like the poor guy has arthritis and a hurt hip. He is on pain medications and seems much better today. I was thinking about the cat just yesterday and wondering how he was doing. He will be 14 years old in a few weeks.

Wanted to get today’s blog update out of the way before going to sleep. Earlier, I took a picture from my room that shows a nearby port and the River Mersey. Overcast most of the day, but no rain.

Added some maps showing Isle of Man and where I’m staying in Liverpool.
