Happy birthday, Bess!!!!

Econlady, cool cookie!!!

Well, DH and I sat down and talked about our thoughts for the coming year of travel. I think we have a general destination and plan that we both are happy with - easier travel for DH than going off to Morocco and Ethiopia, as he first wanted - but options for more active travel for me, and maybe a side trip to somewhere I've always wanted to visit - and some new places for both of us.

But I won't say where until we book something, because DH can change his mind at the last minute.

Good Afternoon

I woke up this morning and it was raining. I thought about needing to wash my hair. I thought of the rain and just didn't walk. But I got my hair washed. I thought about walking and just didn't do it even though it quit raining. Rain usually don't stop me, I just carry an umbrella. In a little while I'll walk a mile with my husband and do some back and knee exercises. And call it good. I want to be strong or my knee replacement!

I half way expect to take Bernie to ER this evening. I have the last 2 Saturday's. Grr I hope not.

Happy birthday Bess!

Hanging out in Galveston today. Found a place called the shark shack for lunch and loved it. I got a plain grilled chicken, a side salad and the most amazing French fries. I know I shouldn’t eat French fries, but these are crispy and delicious! Also, had an air brush decorating class this morning and this is the cookie I made. I’ll take home a picture and toss the cookie. Tomorrow we board the ship!

Have a great day everyone!

Hello Everyone!

Maree- Is packing for a business trip? I've always wanted to visit Philly- It's on my bucket list. I want to see the Liberty Bell! So I'm a little jealous of you in a good way. emoticon

I started my Saturday off my favorite way- With a visit to the Farmers Market! And I didn't overspend! Some fresh corn on the cob is planned with tonight's dinner. Yum!

Good morning!

While I am delighted to be complimented and able to be with my kids and grandkids I also know that there is lots of luck and genetics involved. I am thinking about my fit friend who got hit on her bike last year and died. I am thinking of me with a broken leg last year. I am thinking of anyone who has an ‘appointment’ with a medical problem they hadn’t bargained for. And then, Donna, as you say so well, attitude is everything.

Happy Birthday Bess!! You are leaving Virginia on a beautiful day. Hope that makes you smile and that you and your DH find a way to celebrate when you take a break from driving.

My DH and I went to a big art festival in Alexandria this morning and stopped by the weekly market too. With perfect weather it was all glorious. Now to prep for the wedding. Quite a lovely fall weekend all in all.

Best to everyone as we enjoy these glorious fall days leading us forward toward winter.

Let’s start off by wishing Bess a very happy birthday! I hope the car trip is a part of the birthday celebration.
Maree you are so right about being proud of being so fit compared to others your age. I felt the same way until all these problems with my hip and knee happened. I will do everything I can to get back to being the fit Gramma. It is up to me for sure and a little help from a high power. I will do my best for sure.

Enjoy your hike today.

We are off to visit an 89 year old Uncle who is visiting his son. I talked to him on the phone about our visit and he sounds wonderful. Attitude is everything, He gets around with a walker and a scooter now but made the flight on his own. What a great attitude. He also told me he is going on a hunting trip with his son soon. They will be gone for awhile and sleeping in tents. Not sure how that will work but I am sure to hear more details today. I love the attitude though!

Enjoy your Saturday team.....

Good morning. Today is the Equinox, the nights will start to be longer than the days now, always a little depressing.

I hope your rain comes this way, Maree, we are so dry!

Bess, have a great trip.

Good morning, dear friends.

Happy Saturday! And special wishes to Bess for a wonderful birthday today!! Even if it's spent in the car. I'm sure you will make the best of it since you are headed out on a Grand Adventure, right? Thank you for letting us know about NOLA losing her husband. Cancer is such a thief.

So, Jamirblaze, when you hit "post message," you received some warning that your post was profane? And then it was deleted? That has never happened to me; that makes me laugh because it's just not you. But I also understand how frustrating it is to lose a message!

Toni, I agree that being the "fit" mom/grandma is the greatest reward--better than compliments! My guest last Sunday commented that there "were a bunch of old people" at her 55th HS Class Reunion! She was proud that she was one of the more fit attendees. I have heard stories of people showing up with Walkers Etc and it is quite the accomplishment to have all of your own body parts. Hahaha

DH and I plan to do our Switchback hike today and are just hoping for a window of good weather since we have rain in the forecast all weekend, especially tomorrow. I will need to spend some time packing and I will be flying out to Philadelphia Monday morning. We have a conference Tuesday. It ought to be interesting.

I better get this posted. I hope all of you have a great day!
