My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving 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 want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus 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...


Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband went to their beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

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 had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

So looking forward to the summer with fresh air & warm summer nights. Spring here is pretty good too.

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.

Thanks friends,

Wish I had a maid

I really wish I had a maid to come in and help me clean this house.  Since the cancer and the difficult knees, housework is so hard now.  People don't really appreciate their mobility until it is taken from them then stark reality sets in.  It is not easy to get use to but you do it anyway.  Why does it seem like nothing will ever happen to us then boom! It does and we can't believe it.  I look at people who walk, run or jog and I remember...hoping they appreciate the power they have to be "normal". To be able to just stand up and walk whichever way you decide.  It's precious, so take nothing for granted.
I once was blindfolded and led by a seeing eye dog, just to get the sense of what visually impaired people go through and it was aweful.  They became my new heroes.  I tell others to live each day as if it is your last, yet I sit around wishing I could meet someone, or just get up and walk normal.  But I don't have the confidence anymore to think someone would want me.  I changed so much since the cancer.  Even my hair, when it came back, is so curly and wild, not like it use to me which was just some body to it.  Losing my hair was the hardest.  It was so hard to accept, watching it come out piece by piece until I had it all cut off and shaved.  I can't even remember doing it, so that just shows you how a person can block things out, painful memories. I gess that's why travel is so important to me.
