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,

Stars & streets of Hollywood

Well, I just couldn't wait to give you more pictures so you can enjoy the LA / Hollywood we enjoyed while visiting my nephew in Vegas.  His wife Jackie, drove us out to LA.  We drove the famous Route 66.  I saw country while they filmed lots of western movies.  I saw the extreme "trees" which I had to take pics of.

Jackie drove us over the infamous overpass that crashed and killed and hurt lots of people going and come to LA.  It was horrible! I remember watching it on TV.  Our hotel overlooked the Hollywood hills and the famous sign.  The Renaissance Hotel is almost right next to the Kodak Theatre.  We took pictures of lots of "stars" stars.  Hollywood Blvd was nothing much to see. l I was somewhat disappointed.  I expected to see more plush surroundings.  We stopped in the Chinese Theatre to get gifts and walked along the strip and took pictures of costumed people.  I didn't know we were supposed to pay for them to act out for us.  I think Jackie gave them a tip.

I bought my first pair of Sketchers shoes and to this day, I still have them and they are in great shape!  What a great shoe.  Since then, I bought my Sketchers sneakers for our Med cruise last year.  Well worth it.

 Jackie drove us all around the Hollywood hills to see some homes of famous people.  One of my favourite is Jennifer Aniston but we couldn't see her house very well because of the high fence and trees.  We drove up Mulholland Drive. It was a great place to visit.  I wish we had more time here but we only had the one night.  Jackie even drove up to the area that she was brought up in.

I'll post my pictures in segments because there are so many.  I hope you enjoy them.  I know I did.

Thank you and take care all.  I appreciate you following and reading my blogs.
