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,

Live Laugh Love and Bloggings: CafePress Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway

Live Laugh Love and Bloggings: CafePress Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway

Unfortunately, this is for US residence only not us Canadians, but as a Breast Cancer Survivor,
I support this site.

I almost died from the side affects of the cancer and chemo. I know how
precious life is and that is one journey I don't want to take again. I travelled
this path once and don't want to again.
I do believe that if anyone is offered to be in a clinical trial, then DO IT!. They
take care of you until you die, you help so many other womend not to have to
experience what you have been through and you feel taken care of.

It is a travel experience you don't want to go through and it is one of the
main reasons why I want to travel and do reviews so much. Each day our feet
hit the floor, we should be saying a prayer of thanks.

My family and I live with this everyday. I still can't look at hair loss. A friend of
mine shaved her head for cancer and looking at the pictures, I am so proud of her,
but it pains me still today. The cancer was found in late 2002, the operation was done
December 31, 2002 and the 2003 year was the year of hell! Chemo, radiation and
going through the change of life but too sick to realize it.
Thank goodness for our Canadian single tier public health care system and the
dedication of the cancer doctors, nurses and other health care workers. The children
I have custody of today appreciate it and so do I.

Remember, if you can join a Clinical Trial, then do so. You could also be saving a life
within your family or even yourself again down the line.
Thanks for listening and reading.
