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 Away to Aruba!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aruba Tourism Authority for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I think of Aruba, Aruba travel I think of the clear turquoise  water, the soft white sand, the palm tree gently blowing in the soft Carribean air.    There is so much to see and do on the Island of Aruba.  I want to explore the hidden coves and beaches and swim in the warm tropical waters.  I love to wake up to a warm breeze on my face, cooling me. I can't wait to taste the Islands fruit.  Imagine, soft fresh fruit, just for my picking.  I heard about the many Carnival activities in Aruba with all the costumes and the exciting celebrations  Now that's a party!  Aruba I can't wait to join in with the community and pretend for a little while that I live in Aruba.
One thing I found out is the ease of getting around.  I know for people like me with mobility disabilities, it is important to be able to access transportation for siteseeing.  I'd be able to rent a car and drive the entire island so I don't miss anything!  I'm so happy they drive on the same side as I do.  It is so exciting to be able to explore one of the most beautiful islands anywhere but to be able to drive the entire island, that would be heaven. Rainbows would shine on me.
I love to explore the unique little shops with homemade goods.  I love searching for jewelery (doesn't every woman). The kids will have a blast on the wave-runners and jet-ski. They learned to really love water sports and Aruba will be perfect for just that!
If I were to get married on the perfect little island, I think it would have to be Aruba.   The scenery, the tropic, the perpetual sun shining down to brighten our day, would be a dream come true for me!
Folks, being able to go to Aruba is really and truly high on my bucket list and one day, hopefully soon, I'll be flying where the sun shines, the warm breezes call and the water beckons me.Aruba
