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,

Little Rialey with Belly Dancer on Nile Cruise w/Video

We were all excited about taking our river cruise on the Nile during our stay in Cairo.  The dinner cruise was a 3 course meal with desert.  Sometime during the evening, the belly dancer came out and started dancing all around everyone.  She had long black hair and a long pink dress, very low cut! 

The kids watched in awe!  They had never seen a belly dancer and were mesmerized by it all.  Later, a man came out all dressed up and he too danced for us and did tricks with his cape.  What a night.  We couldn't wait to get back to the ship because we were so tired.  I still hadn't bought many gifts, thank goodness I bought what I did at the Pyramids.

Rialey wanted to dance with the belly dancer so much, but said he was too shy.  WELL... wait to you see the video of him dancing.  After a while, he was dancing all by himself while the belly dancer danced her routine.  Some other people joined in, but I have to say, it seemed the audience enjoyed Rialey's dancing more and everyone encouraged him to shake his butt and wiggle.  Lots of people took pictures of him.  It was hilarious!!  I tell you it was!  I hope you all enjoy the pictures and video.  I have a longer picture of him dancing but it isn't downloading so until I figure out how to download the longer video, enjoy this one and the pictures.  I have lots more pictures to post of Egypt, including the high security hotel we stayed at.  We had taken so many pictures that I think it will take me a while to post them all.  During the dancing, Rialey literally danced the bottoms of his shoes off.  The soles were flapping as he danced!  It was too funny...

Enjoy my little guy Rialey!

Now he may be small, but his smile says something else!

Belly dancer changed clothes for other dances

Our sunset that evening, what a beautiful site with the Pyramid in the background!
