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,

UPDATE: 4 Trips before the big trip in December

Well, off to Miramichi again, then Corner Brook  then St. John's and finally off to Ottawa.  This is all before our big cruise trip!!

Leaving on Air Canada flights.  So far, I have had great service with Canadian Air Canada but I have had the most horrible service with Air Canada in Orlando 2009 March.  It was so bad! Here I was stranded with two kids.  They said I missed the call for the Montreal people but I didn't hear them call out because we were in line to get our boarding passes.  They refused to put us on the plane.  As a matter of fact, I heard the real reason was they overbooked the flight by a large number.  So I guess they were looking for any excuse to deny people.  We had to wait on standby all night and with a child with ADHD and a youth, it was very difficult but the kids were great!
We finally got in Montreal and thankfully the Canadian Air Canada service was soooo much better. They put us up in a hotel with a meal with a bus to and from the airport.  Finally after a lot of trouble, we made it home.  Now, I'm afraid to go Air Canada in Florida again.  I still haven't written to the HQs of Air Canada to complain because it still brings back bad memories.

So the service and places where I travel to and from mean a lot to me.  I also critic items I buy.  With children with asthma and disorders, I have to be fussy. 

I will send more into and include pictures on my next travel adventures.  But I really will be blogging on the BIG trip to Spain and the cruise.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE:  The Rodd Inn in Miramichi is a great little place for family to visit.  It was a picturesque view of the Miramichi River.  The Inn has a lovely, deep pool with a hot tub.  The restaurant is situated overlooking the river and the decor is very warm and inviting.

The rooms are a different colour with a orange and green combo.  The bathrooms are so clean and refreshing to take a shower or a luxury bath in.  The rooms are very clean, but some carpets should be replaced.  There is free Internet and a wide range of tv channels to watch.  A small fridge comes in handy when you want to keep your liquids cold.  I liked my room which had a great sofa bed and coffee table.  Very relaxing.  The beds are so comfortable, certainly helps one sleep more soundly, unless you're like me and need feather pillows.  I should have requested them when I arrived but didn't until it was far too late.

Miramichi, is one of the sweetest and loveliest town.  The older homes are so worth seeing.  The country streets and unique buildings make it worth the venture.  This town used to be home to a many pulp and paper mills, but as time went on, they closed.  Today, I say logs floating down the river and my first reaction was, "look, there's a croc",  well, they soon laughed at me.

It's time to say good night for now, I'm off for a swim before bed.  Tonight I have my feather pillows so it should be a heavenly sleep!
