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,

Experience KISSIMMEE Florida

Hi Folks!

To say we are getting excited about our upcoming trip to Orlando is an understatement!  We can't wait to pack up and jet down to a warm sunny place.  We had enough cold and snow to last 2 or 3 years and it's time to get some rest and relaxation.  That's what we intend to do.

We will be staying at my RCI Time Share resort for 5 nights.  While in Kissimmee we will be enjoying a day around the pool, see some sites and hopefully do some go-carting.  But there are two important things we will be enjoying, one is a special day for a birthday boy Kaelen who will be turning 10 on Friday so we are going to Legoland, yeah!!!  Then on Saturday, we will be enjoying the compliments of Experience Kissimmee (thanks Rochelle) at Gatorland yeah!!!!!!  I personally love the sights and experiences of Kissimmee.  We found a fabulous Fair there with lots of different go-cart tracks.  They also had a 300 ft swing up which pulls you up in the air then comes down towards the water.  Layla did this and all I heard were her screams.  She had a blast!

This time when we go to Gatorland, with many thanks to Experience Kissimmee, we will be doing the Zip Line.  None of us had ever zipped lined before so this should be a VERY curious and exciting time.  I can't wait to put up those pictures.  I am looking for a way to video the event so you can hear our screams for real.

Well, until our vacation actually begins, I'll leave you with these wonderful pictures of Experience Kissimmee.  Please enjoy and stay tuned for lots more fun and exciting pictures.

This was one adventure we hoped to do, but not this time.

I've never been on this kind of swamp boat before and it does look so exciting!

I can't imagine me flying over those alligators down there!
