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,

Georgian Air Beach Craft Crew Join Movember month!

Hello out to you all! 

I just landed in Saint John off of an Georgian Air Beach Craft plane booked through Air Canada.  It gives passengers everything they could ever want, an aisle and a window at the same time.  Yes, that's right, at the same time.  These small beach crafts were made to land on beaches and small areas.  They hold about 18 passengers and one of the best safety records.  They are noisy and sleek inside but I am so comfortable riding in one.  Twice now, I had the deluxe plane because we actually had a bathroom on the plane.  Most don't have any washrooms.  So I guess I had the elite flight.

My first reaction was one of shock!  I couldn't believe anyone would ride in this little plane.  When I asked before boarding the flight to have a window seat and that no one sit beside me.  WELL!! I got what I wanted for sure.  I had to walk out to the plane, then climb the 6 steps to get to the top and to my utter surprise, there were two single row seats both with an aisle and window view.  The aisle is very narrow to get to your seat.  I don't know how a larger person would be able to sit in the small but comfortable seats, but they do. 

After we are all on board and belted up, a man (yes a man so far) who I believe is the flight attendant ensures all things are put away, that our seat belts are fastened and the door to the plane is shut and locked.  Then he gives the instructions to us and asks us if we need anything to tap him on the shoulder. Then all of a sudden.... he lifts his leg up and climbs into the Co-pilot's seat!!  In all my flying, I have never seen this done, my flight attendant flying the plane, go figure!

These planes don't fly as high as normal size planes but they are true to their word, they get you there fast!!.  I tend to joke with the flight attendant/co-pilot by asking what movie is playing and what's for lunch. 

This last trip, my flight attendant was Paul, a handsome, striking young man with looks that should be in the movies.  Paul and I got to talking and we got on the subject of Movember month and he jokingly felt his little haired mustache and said this is what this is, but you should see the pilot's!  I bragged how proud I was to see more and more people get involved in Movember month to raise funds and awareness for prostrate cancer.  I mentioned how awesome the Delta St. John's, Newfoundland employees get involved in Movember and I have posted lots of pictures of them.  It is a great charity to participate in while raising money for research to cure prostrate cancer.  I know, I was a breast cancer patient who somehow survived and how even the word of "cancer" can take years off a person's life.  The worry and stress it brings, changes a person's entire way of living or not.

We met the Pilot John and Co-Pilot Paul at the hotel we are staying in and I finally got to see the Pilot's mustache but YOU CAN'T SEE IT!  I think he turned a bit red in the face, he was bald, but cute as well!!  He had a great sense of humour but we at least know Movember month is supported by our Georgian Air Beach Craft Pilots!  Thanks to you for your support.

Remember to get your workplaces, families, faith groups and community involved in Movember month and raise awareness for a great cause.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to review this.
