You are looking forward to your next vacation in 2019, when you will be able to relax with your family and explore a new place or return to a favorite location. Given the fact the average American vacation is only 3.8 days; you want to get the most out of them. But your plans can easily backfire when you become sick, like I did when I visited New York. After talking to several friends, I found out the Big Apple is notorious for making people sick. Literally!

It looks like some of the bugs got worked out of the travelblog system. Which means it is time for me to update my blog I guess! First stop: New York City to meet with the Captain. I wanted an upgrade for the 13- hour flight and asked at check-in. No complimentary ones available because she said the flight was not very full. I asked if there was at least the middle seat was empty and she said yes, so I figured I'd rough it. Well, the flight was almost completely empty and after a bit of shuffling, I wound up with a whole row to myself! So I actually got some decent sleep by laying across the three seats and I was not the only one. I actually wound up on the same flight 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

Nov 11, 2018 (New York) - Getting ready for the long haul over to the Middle East for a short stop over before flying on to Bangladesh. It seemed like we had a lot of time planned to be on the ground, but given the tight schedule. I land at 2 am on November 11 (local) and we start meetings at 8:30 and push through the whole day. The work in Bangladesh is being coordinated through a large local NGO( BRAC). The plan calls for trips to local facilities in Dhaka, but also travel to Cox's Bazar and the large refugee camp near there. Considering local travel constraints, I'm packing only "carry on" - got it all into a small back pack! More soon!... read more

New York (Nov 9, 2018) In the 50's and rainy in New York this Friday evening. Fridays evenings can be challenging to get to JFK, so I chose the subway and the Air Train which worked quite well. I got to the Kuwait Airlines ticket counter early so there were no lines. The gate agent told me they had an upgrade to Premium Economy (more legroom and closer to the front) so I went for it. Hope to get some sleep on this leg so I can be in shape to meet at 8:30 the morning I arrive. Flight looks pretty full. More soon from the other side of the pond!... read more

Being back in the US for the month of October it has allowed us to get more done around the house and keep our promise to ourselves to take advantage of some of the live music that we have available in the area. We also had the bonus of getting together with some family members, hooked up again with a few cruising friends we have met over the years and I have also had a chance to get in touch with a few more friends that I had back in High School from “just a few years ago”. Before we had left the boat, Bob already knew that he wanted to get to the Annapolis Sailboat Show so already had our tickets and reservations at an AirBnB. It was a quick trip as we left on ... read more
