This article kind goes with our travel theme--

Quote--
I have been in many places but I've never been in Cahoots with someone.
I also have never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have , however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport so you have to be driven there.I have made several trips there, thanks to my family and friend II would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I am not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.
I have been in Flexible, but only when it was important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable. I go there more often as I am getting older.
But one of my favorite places to be is in Suspense!
It really gets the adrenalin flowing and the old heart pumping! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
Have a great trip to Jonesboro. Your son and his wife are both making good contributions and we are grateful.

Hi Pat,
No, my son is director of the Senior Health Program at the hosital in Jonesboro. His wife has two elderly horses that she has owned for years. She used to do dressage. They've traveled with the family from Virginia, to Florida and now to Arkansas. She is very attached to these horses. They are as much a part of the family as her dog (Little White Dog was a stray who adopted the family!) His job at the hospital also keeps my son really busy. In addition to a Health Center, there is also Assisted Living, and a nursing home facility there.
How lovely that you now have a 6 week old "Schneigel". What fun! Enjoy your days with the little 6 week old!
Dot

Hi Leta, What a talented lady you are, and I am sure you have some grateful children and grandchildren. I have some friends who make wonderful quilts for their families and I know how appreciative they are!
I too wish you a very happy birthday, Saturday, and many more to come..I hope you can share a little of your celebration by posting pictures. But a good description will be appreciated as well.

Good morning Pat,
I am finally getting over the cold. Took almost three weeks also. On Sunday and Monday of this week, I was wondering if I would EVER feel better again. The cough took so much out of me this time.
It's a chilly, misty, rainy week here in this part of Jersey. Expecting snow later in the week. Have to contend with a minor leak in the roof of my bathroom. Wondering if I will have to replace the skylight in the room.
Leave in a week to visit my son in Arkansas. He can't come East to visit family too often. Hard to find horse sitters in his part of the state. And his sister-in-law who is hospitalized is always difficult about her sister leaving for a few days.
Have a great day.... Have to unpack my new printer and set it up. Need to print out my calendars.

Good morning Leta,
My, you have been busy! Good that you can sew without getting hungry. That's how I am with the computer. Get so caught up with what I am reading that I forget about food.
I hope you have a wonderful day on Saturday as you celebrate your birthday.
Have a Blessed Christmas.

Good morning Pat and all team,
I have been doing a lot of sewing for Christmas. I have made 7 pairs of pillow cases for my adult children an have the pillows bought for them. so far I have made 5 for the small ggrands. Have two more to make this am. Next week I have to start making candy for my adult boys then have to raid the bank for the rest of them.
I have such a large family now and I had to start early. Our church has a Christmas party for our seniors group this Saturday,the 10th which will be my 85 birthday.
I have been pretty good with my food allowances because when I sew I don't get hungry.
I am sure you all have been busy too. I wish you all a Blessed Christmas with Peace
and love from the Christ Child.

Hi Leta and Dot!

Thinking of you and hope all is well.
Did you ever get over your cold, Dot? I entertained something similar last summer and it took me about 3 weeks or more to get my energy back.

Tell us how what you are up tobthese days, Leta. I know you have some interesting hobbies as well.

Good for you, Dot! We are happy to hear you are on the mend and feeling better now! It sounds like you are listening to your body and will not over due it as you get back to your old self.

Your positive attitude is helpful too. What fun that you are already planning your next
cruise down the Mississippi no less. We will enjoy hearing of your modern "barge" version
of Tom and Huck's river:). What fun!

I will be interested to hear what your accommodations are like and if you tour the towns at all for site seeing and shopping as well.

Hi Pat,
Today for the FIRST time since I came down with this cold/bronchitis I WALKED half a mile. Then stopped to get some breakfast and take some medications. Walked more in a half hour than I walked any day this week! Feeling better. Now, I am going to start planning a cruise on the Mississippi with two friends of mine from Missippippi. We'll start in Memphis, Tennesee and cruise down to New Orleans. That won't be until sometime after August though.

I had that done a good while ago and it was to look for blockage. I had no blockage then but do have some now. My vascular dr did not suggest any surgery and said it would not go anywhere, Hope he is right.

Good luck and I hope they won't find anything.

We haven't had a church's Christmas party yet. Ha ha Pat I went back and read my last post where I went cruising through the air with Santa. I watched some Christmas shows on TV.

Today I went for what I though was an eco on my legs to test the circulation and found out he did a lot of my body. He used gel and a kind of a wand and it showed up on the computer. has anyone had that and what is it for? He started with the feet went to different places in my calves and thighs and my stomach and arm pit. I guess I'll find out Monday just what it was.

Hi Dot! Sorry you are still under the weather but thankful if you must travel while sick, at least you will be in good hands when you get there ! :) Get well soon. My hope is that you will join us soon on the Did you Exercise Today? forum. We need all the motivators to keep us moving that we can get!

The same goes for you Leta. Everything counts- Cardio, weights, yoga, housework, pedometer steps, etc.
How wonderful that daughter and fantastic son-in-law took such good care of you on the cruise. So you were entertained aboard ship and also got to shop on shore. How fun!
DH and I also have wonderful son-laws, actually three of them. He loves their unique companionship after raising all daughters. They are all different but equally great!
Hey, glad you ate mindfully -even on a cruise. Not easy, I am sure!

Irene, Did you fly in with Santa at your church Christmas party? They are always so much fun. Especially the Children's Nativity re-enactments. Or recitals and choirs.

Good morning Pat,
I realy enjoyed the cruise with my daughter and son in law. He is the best man I have ever known. He is so considered of me. We went on shore at cozumel and shopped. And had good shows two nights on board. Weather was fine not too hot, and the food was plentiful.
I tried to eat lightly and nourshing. All in all we had a good time.

Hi Pat,
That head cold I caught started to leave and then decided to settle in my chest. Saw my doctor today and I have bronchities. So now I'm on an antibiotic, Mucinex for the congestion, and an inhaler for the breathlessness. So obviously I'm not doing much exercising yet. Better get better soon, Im due to fly to Arkansas on the 14th of this month to visit my son, the doctor.
Hope you are doing well.
Hugs Dot

Hey, It has been fun to hear from you gals about your barges trips and cruises.

I am looking forward to hearing further experiences along that line. Your upcoming trip down the Loure river,Dot, Will be especially fun for me to hear about. Many years ago we had a lovely exchange student from that area.

I would like to hear about your cruises too, Leta. It is such a pleasure to hear from you too!

Irene, You may have to do like I do , I guess, and just enjoy hearing of other people's trips. That can be very entertaining as well!

Hugs, Pat

Hi Leta,
Like you I think it is wonderful to be able to celebrate 65 years of married like.
The cruises do wear me out but I have such a good time and get more exercise than at home. In April of next year, I'm going to cruise on the canals and the Loire River in France on a barge. It's probably my favorite spot in France. Then in May, I'll cruise for a week around the Chesapeake Bay and spend a few days in Annapolis with my son and his wife.
I had the family getogether here in town (too large to fit in my home any longer) and while I do miss them after they've gone, I also enjoy the quiet and solitude after everyone has left. Guess I'm kind of a loner.

Hi Pat,Your trip to Hawaii sounds like fun. I haven't done any ocean voyages. We try to get together as a family twice a year at holidays at one home or another. For my 80th birthday, we all went for a weekend getaway with walks and dinners. It was great that all my family got to see my husband's sister (she passed away just a few months later). How I wish my husband were still here to celebrate the holidays together. The family is planning a get together on New Year's Eve with more of the extended family this time. Should be a bash!!

the cruise wore me out but it was a good thing. I got more exercise than I do sitting here at home.
I had people here all over the Thanksgiving week end. Sunday afternoon all were gone and I miss them already.

Hi Leta and Dot,
It is fun to hear of your cruise get-a-ways. Brings back pleasant memories of our Hawaiian
cruise back when we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. It was so much fun we thought we would repeat it in 5 years or so but it never happened.
Our cruise ship traveled at night from island to island and our days we toured and shopped the islands.
We celebrate Our 65th anniversary in March but we haven't made any plans . Our annual get a way now- is covered by our whole family get-to-gethers somewhere in the country with all our children and their families.

Good morning Leta,
Yes, it do wonders to get off for a few days to another scene and atmosphere. food on this cruise was good but like you not my kind of cooking.... (plentiful, and good but not great)
I'm still having bouts of coughing also and a bit of a headache still, but much better actually than Monday.

Lovely visit yesterday with the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Good food, good conversation, great family equals great time!

Good morning Dot,
Glad you had a nice cruise. I think it does wonders for us to get off for a few days. I hae been on 3 cruises in the last 2 years. I do get a lot of walking in while on board. Food is good but I didnt eat much. Not my kind od cooking, lol.
Hope your cold is better now. I have been having bronchitis bouts and lots of coughing.

Welcome back, Dot! Glad you had a great time on your latest cruise. Sorry about the head cold though. They can be miserable but know you will take good care of yourself and get well soon!
I would think 5000 to 6000 steps aboard ship was doing well.
The delicious food will take some time to work off so if you are like me, you will have to put in some extra effort to shed the results.!
Looking forward to you joining us in our efforts to become healthier every day!

Hi, I'm back, 5 pounds heavier and with a severe head cold. Cruised along the Atlantic coast from Jacksonville to Charleston. Weather was clear and fairly warm most days, walked each day between 5000 and 6000 steps. Most I could do. Lots of food on board ship at each meal. Most of the time I requested half portions but it still was too much fattening food. Good though.... As I shed this cold, I'll get back to my routine. Much to see, lovely area!!!
