Hello, Hello, Hello Everyone! We have missed you! Lulu has been crying herself to sleep every night she has missed you so much. It’s so good to be back with all of you. Lulu’s eyes are glistening with joy right now. I can’t get that Cheshire grin off her face. I gave her a bath in our dishwasher this summer. She is so clean and perky now. Our summer has been filled with many, many things that I want to share with you. I can hear your familiar moans & wailing already. That’s okay. I realize I tend to get quite loquacious. I am who I am. Yep, it’s cozy chair & coffee time again. Put your phones on hold and let the reading begin. I really don’t know where to start. Hang with me as ... read more

We were afraid you might be getting a little lonely and bored. We sure don’t want that. Lulu suggested compiling another blog that has just a bunch of various people and places for your perusal. Oh, lucky you! It is the giving season! I belong to several groups on Facebooks. Two I follow on a regular basis and often share my own finds. One group is called “Old Farms and Barns”. It is a wonderful group if you enjoy beautiful and unique farm and farm related pictures. My “Santa & Tractor” photo is a recent submission of mine. The tractor wasn’t my photo..but I put Santa in his place ...Go,Tractor, Go! The other group is called “Weird Second Hand Finds that just need to be shared”. I’m addicted to this group. I spend hours just looking ... read more

Yes, dear loyal followers....this blog (#474 - are you kidding me? I have to admit I must be a quite a blabbermouth) actually brings us up to date with all our doings. Whew! (I’m wiping the beads of sweat off my forehead as well as Lulu’s - she’s been so stressed out). The blog site is still not working and we don’t know who is receiving our blogs or not. Those of you who use Goggle Chrome (like us) receive the blog with a warning that says it is unsafe. Our Verizon manager reassured us that it is nothing to fear or be concerned about. If you get that message and are nervous, let me know and I’ll send it a different way to you. When I went through my “follower” list, I did delete a ... read more

Still trying to catch up. You all need to get right back in your time machines. We aren’t up to date on our timelines yet. But we’ll get there eventually, I think. Even though our travel blog site continues to be a real mess and heartbreaker, we still have so much more to be thankful. Our family comes first, followed by all of you. We are so thankful for everything we can do together and make such wonderful memories. Obviously, our main reason for leaving the warmth of our sunny “R&R” to return to the snowy, white blanket covering our home was to be with our family. That’s what it’s all about for us. Cory and I are blessed with 4 children, nine grandchildren plus spouses and significant others. A grand group! Oh, and of course, ... read more

Well, my many, virtuous, devoted followers, it doesn’t look good. Lulu is having a tizzy. She is wearing a cervical collar as a straight jacket. Only piece of equipment that can contain her. Me....I have bloody stumps for fingers after continually typing. My brain is in a constant spinning mode. Sad, just plain sad. All of it! We really need your sympathy now.....more than ever. I have worked on my blog site problem for many weeks now....starting November 12th. Nooooooooo. I’m pooped! Everything I try doesn’t seem to have or be the right answer. Whhhhhyyyyyy. The travel blog support site has never answered me. They used to respond within 24 hours. Where art thou ol’ Travel Blog people? The problem (refresher) we are dealing with is: the TB site is not notifying the majority of you ... read more

And we were right on the money! On the third day of travel, we arrived at our home in Shongo, NY. Cory pulled into our snow covered driveway on Tuesday, Nov.20th at 3:20 PM. The car kind of slipped and slid on the driveway. Under the fluffy, white stuff was nasty mud. Almost like pigpen mud! Besides the deep white snow on the ground, the snowflakes were sprinkling down all around and adding to the accumulation. Welcome to our a true winter wonderland. What were we thinking? On Sunday, Nov.18th....we left warm and toasty Florida in our overly packed sedan. The new windshield was so clear. The blue sky was the typical true Florida blue sky. Not a cloud in sight. A hot air balloon had just floated over our RV. We watched it slowly ... read more

Happy New Year Everyone! In with the new and out with the old.....good! good! good! Actually, 2017 was a good year for us UNTIL THE END. We met our desired goal by having our auction to sell off all our antiques & collectibles plus more. Our house and property are in shape to be put on the sales market. Our oldest son, Cory, relocated from N.C. back into our area and continues to work in an accomplished position for the Corning Glass Company. His daughter, Rachael, graduated from college and is pursuing her doctorate at the University of Alabama. Our daughter, Kim, changed jobs from SUNY Geneseo to SUNY Binghamton; enhancing her career. Their daughter, Haley, graduated from high school and began college at Miami University in Ohio. Our daughter, Lory, remains a loyal and important ... read more

UPDATE: You are on notice everyone! Our flight plans are being delayed.....not cancelled but delayed. We are disappointed, too. Lulu is in a state of morbid collapse (she’ll get over it once she thaws out). We must stay strong together and have patience. In my boredom, I found this definition: VIRTURE — An example or kind of moral excellence (the virtue of patience). I guess if we want to remain in the excellent category, we need to remain patient. We have resigned ourselves to it. Have to. “We can only focus on what we can control”.....words by Cory E. Guenter. Our car repair shop called Cory this morning. They got the radiator in but it is the wrong one. Rats! So....they have to order another. AND now we are dealing with the holiday- HAPPY NEW YEAR! ... read more

Okay, folks....our pilot says you can unhook your seatbelts at this time. We are in a holding pattern. What’s going on you ask? Inquiring minds want to know!! Can this be for real??? Well, let’s talk. I’ll give you the grueling details. Of course, we have to start at the beginning: THIS MORNING. As you know, when we picked you up earlier, our plan was to leave for Florida today. Oh, we could feel the extreme excitement in the air with all of you. It was going to be a great day for traveling. Even though the sun was shining, it was very nippy outside when loading all our last minute items plus all your baggage. I don’t want to say that you “come with a lot of baggage” but.....just kidding. Temperature this morning was a ... read more

Hellloooooo Everyone! It’s so good to be back again with you. It’s been such a long time. We have missed all of you. We hope each of you have had a good and healthy summer. We are still appreciating the lingering warm weather. We are pretending the fallen, colorful leaves are a new kind of flower that continues to bloom. Its fun to live in a fantasy world. BEWARE: this blog will be a biggie, a super biggie....Just so much to catch up on. Time for you to settle into a comfy chair, grab a tasty drink and treat and then, let my ramblings begin. You can rest your eyes as needed....we don’t want to burn them out! “Moderation” is not a word that comes easily to me with just about anything I’s like “all ... read more
