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,

CheapOAir tickets and website and Continental Airlines

We booked our flight with Cheap-O-Air and I checked today and it is still around the cheapest flight to Spain.  The one problem I have is that our e-tickets don't match our passport names.  Now I am trying to get this fixed so we won't have a problem when we fly out later this year.

I would suggest for all travellers to check EVERYTHING on your ticket and compare it to your passport and don't forget to renew your passport at least 6 months before it expires, otherwise, you will find yourself denied entry or exit to places you want to travel to.

I am playing phone tag with CheapOair but I'll let you know once I get if fixed up.  Boy, I hope so.  Blog later!

Well, I finally received an answer from CheapOair and they couldn't make the changes to our tickets to have the correct names.  We didn't have our middle names on the tickets and we don't want issues at the airport or the country we are flying to. 

At their suggestion, we contacted the airline directly and after 1 hr and 14 minutes, they were able to fix two of our names, but the little guy's name is still being worked on.  Rialey won't be too happy if his ticket won't work to get him on the plane.  The computer at the airline wouldn't take the change for him but the wonderful ticket agent consoled me that she and her supervisor would make it work and she would send me an email message.  Her name is Meumi Williams and she works for Continental Airlines.  They are WONDERFUL!

I highly recommend booking your flights through CheapOair and know that if Continental Airline is your airline, you are in EXCELLENT HANDS.  Thank you to the wonderful people that are doing all they can to ensure we have a fantastic trip.
