My many adventures

Hi Folks, I want to dedicate this first part to all the Houston people and now the Florida folks who were and are in the path of dangerous hurricanes. I pray for you, your family and your pets to get through this terrible time in your life. Some countries all around the world are facing flooding, mud slides and war, please send help, relief and prayers their way.

I survived breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I still want to visit.

I've been to Scotland, England, Vancouver, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, Yukon, Alaska (Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway), a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & Sulcuk, Ephesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: September 7, 2017

Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband have been married one year. WOW that went fast. Was invited to Toronto in July to receive an Honorary Membership award from my union PSAC/USGE. They even brought my grandson up with me. We visited Niagara Falls, CN Tower and went to Medieval Knights dinner theatre. We had such a fabulous time!

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.
I just love summer! I hope the winter will be gentle to us.

Still trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

I have so many posts to write about so please keep patience with me. I received a great posting from which looks to be a great animal site. Hope you enjoy it.

My granddaughter Layla moved back in so now the family is together again for a while. She is a musician and is going to Community College for a Certificate in Music Finance. She also wants to cook for a living because she just loves food and boy can she cook. I wanted to help her to go to Culinary School but we will have to wait to see when she finally makes up her mind.

My little guy Rialey is now 14 and is 6'1 1/2 ". He is so thoughtful of me and helps me a lot.

I really wanted to travel this year but since retirement, the money is too tight. I'll have to save up but I have all those beautiful memories to keep me smiling for now. Thankfully I have posted most here on my blod.

Take care my blogger friends.

Thanks friends,

Sydney here I come on Air Canada's Beach Craft Plane

Well, I am off to Sydney tomorow on an Air Canada Beach Craft plane.  I now have flown on these planes so much I am no longer afraid.  You should have seen my face when I first got on one! It was worth a million  bucks.  The Co-Pilot is also the Flight Attendant.  After he/she greets you and when everyone is on board with their seatbelts on, he gives his speel about safety the plane and emergency exists, he then lifts his leg up high to put it over the seat so he can sit down and hel fly the plane.  We had so much fun laughing, because we couldn't believe it.
      During my first encounter with these planes, I asked for a window seat and she said to me "dear, don't worry, you'll get both".  I had no idea what she meant and when I began to walk to the plane, I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't.  It reminded me of the movie from the 60s/70s where a small plane goes down in the jungle surrounded by headhunters.  The convict has to bulles left after they were able to get the plane fixed and it takes off, but two seniors agreed to stay behind because there was too much weight with all the people.  He agrees with the elderly man to shoot both he and his wife and the last bullet would be for the man, but what the elder man didn't know, is that there were only two bullets, not 3. 
      After he shot them, he got on his knees and while crying, he put his hands in prayer, as the drums of the headhunters stopped, which meant that they were coming.  THIS IS WHAT I thought about when I first entered the plane.

Since my first encounter with this small AIr Canada Plane, I am no longer afraid and can sleep on it quite nicely.  The Captain and the Co-Pilot are normally really nice and they make it a good flight for us.
