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...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: Sept 20, 2016

Hi Folks! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a 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. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. 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.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy 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.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Debbie

Getting out of Saint John, New Brunswick!!

Well, I can't believe it!  Here we are in Saint John, NB and can't get home to Halifax.  We made it to the airport but our flight was cancelled.  Instead of going inside to see what the next flight would be, we four "girls" laughed our heads off and told the cabbie to return to the hotel.  At which point I was able to call them and get our rooms booked and even upgraded us all at no costs!  Thanks to the wonderful Delta Saint John.  Great rooms, fabulous staff and incredible beds.  When we returned to our Signature rooms, we tried to call others left in the hotel, but they were no where to be found.
Suddenly, it dawned on us to contact the airline to see about getting a flight home the next day.  I guess we thought our new flights would miraculously appear in our hands, ha ha boy we got a surprise.  We waited on the line for Air Canada to answer for over 2 1/2 hours then I called our Travel Agent to see if we could get them and waited over 35 minutes.  Here we were, back in the hotel with the whole night to ourselves, no family, no commitments and we ended up stuck on the phones all night just trying to find a flight to get home. 

Our plans to just sleep in late and get up to a lazy breakfast then head to the airport was fast leaving us.  We were lucky we got the flights we did.  We are all leaving different times.  What a night of laughing and giggling.  Jill said, "If I'd had known how much fun you all were, I'd have gotten involved before".  We laughed.
We woke our Organizer up asking if we could rent a car and she mumbled that she thought it would be ok.  We called the Agent back to confirm Deb's flight and I found out our connection flights in Montreal could never be made in time so after checking if we had child care back home and other stuff, we were finally able to confirm our flights for 5:30 pm.  The girls couldn't stop laughing and talking.  Deb who was going on the early flight, says it's no since going to sleep because she only has to get up in a couple of hours.  Jill is going off to bed and Lynette is already asleep.  I'm trying to kick Deb and Jill out so I can watch a religious movie and get some sleep.
Night for now, as I have to get these girls out!!!
