Adventure!

Friday, July 11, 2014

We explored Gettysburg yesterday and had a marvelous time. We're driving back from PA to Maryland and our 2008 car lost all power. My husband had to quickly get us into a nearby church parking lot so we could call AAA. Two hours later the tow truck showed up but he towed us to the dealership near our hotel instead of the closest one down the street, which was great for us. Then the service manager drove us to our hotel! What a blessing it turned out to be. Now the car will get fixed and stay at the dealers until we get back. God put us in the hands of kind people!

    Ah the travails of travel! Glad it all worked out.

Don't you love the statue in Devil's Den? My father was a Civil War buff, and we spent many hours walking around Gettysburg.

Walking for hours every day

Thursday, July 10, 2014

We are getting a ship tomorrow so yesterday we stopped and explored Wiliamsburg and Jamestown, areas of first American settlements . We walked for almost 10 miles according to my pedometer and today we are driving up to Gettysburg to hike some more. Not eating as well as we do at home, but not too awful. The walking should balance it out!

    Have fun! I love that area of the country. Gettysburg is amazing, and every historical site should be as well maintained!

My girlfriend starts brain radiation today

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

The cancer is also in fifteen spots in her brain so prayers are asked for. She starts eighteen day of radiation to the brain today and will lose all her hair. She has been forced to retire medically from her school nurse job , more chemo..and not much hope. Know your body, fight if you do not feel you are getting the medical care you need.

Great walk today

Monday, July 07, 2014

Now I have to drive to my mother's place...she's 88 and grumpy that we still like to travel. I realize she is left alone when we're gone but she does have friends in church she can call for rides. My stomach churns and gets all acidy...I've been taking my husband's prilosec so I guess I'll talk to my doctor when I see her in August. We are driving to Baltimore starting tomorrow to pick up a ship on Friday. Will be in Bermuda for 3 weeks so I'll spark when I can. Boy, I need a vacation...!

    I so envy you... lol I want to go to Bermuda... I want to go somewhere but am thankful I can go to the trailer about 4 days every 2nd week and get away from my grouchy 88 year old dad. Guess have to win the lotto for any trips or cruises. We lived in Bermuda when hubby was in military for a year. I LOVED it, hubby not as much. OH well enjoy your trip and your mum will be fine. My dad has no one to call other than my daughter or son, no other family and no friends. oh well.

ENJOY!!!
