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,

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!!!
