Aug 10, 2014 - Going Home

When I went up for breakfast the morning the ship had already docked in Seattle. They had warned us that it would take time to complete the paperwork and other preparations before anyone could disembark. I saw lots of equipment being set up near our cabin. Apparently, we would all be disembarking on Deck 4 near our cabin. When I got back from breakfast, there were huge lines filling all of the hallways on Deck 4. As with most cruise lines, passengers who wanted to carry their own luggage could get off first. Even though disembarkation...

Alaska Cruise 2014

Jul 20, 2014 - Owen For Dinner

Caught up on housekeeping this morning before starting dinner. Owen came at four and spent the evening with us. Such a treat. He doesn't get many days off. Spencer taught me how to transfer pictures to a new file and then burn them on a CD. I am not the best pupil but eventually I caught on and that project was finished by 10 p.m. I am very proud of myself. Spencer is just glad that it's done. My last doctor's appointment is tomorrow at 4. Hurray! I am anxious to start getting test results.

Jul 5, 2014 - Baseball Detroit style

Four hour drive from Cincinnati to Detroit. Did not have a lot of time to spend touring the city, but did enjoy the stadium. It is one of the better I've been to over the years; about 30 or so to date. There was a good view of the field from any seat, a well designed promenade and access to the various food & drink vendors, though no bargains to be found; hot dogs - $5, a beer - $9, a bag a nuts - $4.50. There was also good team history exhibits throughout the stadium. After the game drove 4 hours to Pittsburgh for the next stadium & game...

Sep 2, 2013 - Belleville, MI (Detroit area) 9-2 to 9-9-5

Detroit area gave us a chance to go to the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. We spent a full day at each. The Ford Museum has everything from mid 1800's farm equipment, household furnishings, railroad cars and antique to present auto's. Step into the sights, sounds and sensations of 300 years of American life at Greenfield Village --a historical presentation of an old village. Many original buildings from Fords childhood home, Edison's workshop, Noah Webster's home and many more. We took a train, trolly, Model T and rode the 1912...

Aug 13, 2013 - Chicago To Detroit

No rain, not much construction, normal traffic - that all added up to a decent trip back to Detroit. I dropped Colin off at The Monarch at 11:15 before heading to Spencer's. I got here in time for us to have dinner together . Tomorrow starts a busy week for both of us. I will stay until Owen has his grand opening and then head south.

Jul 26, 2013 - Change of Plans...Already

As most of you know, the plan was to leave Saturday morning July 27th. The first leg of the trip was to be from Bay Point to St. Clair Boat Harbor. That would mean traveling a little over 100 miles crossing Lake Erie, traveling up the Detroit River, across Lake St. Clair and about half way up the St. Clair River. Well, mother nature made some plans and did not consult with us. Friday afternoon we decided to look and see what the weather would be like for our departure Saturday morning and this mess was on the way. So, a quick replan was...

From BP to the UP!

Jun 18, 2013 - Detroit

June 18 we left Deb and Denny’s “RV Park” and headed for Detroit to visit another couple, Pat and Jerry. We stayed at a campground in Ypsilanti, MI, on Ford Lake, which was about 15 miles south of Taylor, where Pat and Jerry live. We had a nice visit at their lovely home and then went to their daughter Candy’s house (we had met her in FL), where her friend Brian had prepared a delicious dinner including homemade blueberry pie. We are really starting to love this “being treated like royalty” thing everywhere we go! The next day Pat & Jerry...

Oct 13, 2012 - Layover in Detroit

My Trip To China. Not an exciting or even slightly creative title for the first posting but that is what it is. The trip begins with some anxious days and weeks. Lining up the visa for traveling to China, registering with the US Dept of State, studying seating charts on international flights, and making reservations with hotels half a world away. All of these things contribute to a feeling that this is more than just a trip to another conference. Is it once in a lifetime? I hope not. The trip begins in a one step up, two steps back...

Summer Safari

Jul 5, 2012 - Dallas to Portland via Detroit

Up very early to get to the airport an hour away by 6 AM and into the air an hour later. Our flight took us to Detroit, about 3 hours NE of Dallas. We had an hour there and then a short 2 hour flight due east into Portland, Maine, which is a hundred miles north or so of Boston. We rented a car at the airport and drove through to our motel with time left to go into the city. We walked around the shops and the wharves of the older part of the city and drove through the business district. Its quite a nice city but what amazed us is how hard it...

Visiting Back East

Dec 5, 2011 - "Look how much Mr. Waldorf copied from Germany!!!"

EDITORS NOTE: Lines in quotes are by Lydia, applies today to title pictures only. As I write she is sleeping. I did not have my camera with me at the hotel breakfast, but it was confirmation that we are in Waldorf-land. Tomorrow I'll add pictures and show you what I mean. Our homeschool is guided by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, who started the first Waldorf School in Germany, in the 1920's. The school was named for the Waldorf Cigartte Factory, whose employees' children were to attend the school. Of any group of private schools, there...

Dec 2, 2011 - Bis spater

If I'm to believe my computer search, Bis spater means see you later in German. If it's a curse word, please leave feedback at answers.com. I've done some playing with the itinerary feature. Apologies if I did not insert any birthdays that I should have. Shabbat Shalom
