Jan 20, 2014 - Day before the RV retrieval Mission

The day was spent getting ready to fly to San Diego to pick up our 5th wheel and my parent's motor home. We packed and had dinner with Marc & Annette at Fuzzy Tacos. If you haven't ever been to Fuzzy's, go. It is very tasty and has very reasonable prices. It is in Bricktown right next to the movie theater and Sonic. They have tables outside that look over the Bricktown canal and there is a lot of good people watching to do. We stayed the night at Brad & Trisha's house. Brad was kind enough to take us to the airport at 5:30 in the morning to...

Oct 22, 2013 - Oklahoma City, OK

We arrived in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, October 15. Camping World is ordering a part for our satellite. Bill's had one medical appointment, and we're waiting on testing results. We had a fun three-day weekend with Cory, Rhonda and Bryce while Bryce was out of school on fall break. We're looking forward to seeing one of his football games while we're here. I had a fun reunion with nine of my former co-workers at OU Personnel Services on Monday. We've had new tires put on our truck. It's now two years old and has nearly 60,000 miles on it....

Oct 21, 2013 - Mon.:Day 6

October 21, 2013 - Day 6 Had a very relaxing day somewhat. Mike tried fixing the whining coming from our power converter & it seemed to be fixed but now it seems to be back; really don't know what the problem is; battery???? So while Mike was working on that & I was watching dutifully & handing him tools while he laid on the floor; the women folk were down by the crick doing the wash aka laundry mat. That all done & off to a fun filled day. Stop 1: Camping world looking for things that we needed; Stop 2: the Cowboy Museum. Words alone...

Oct 21, 2013 - Sun:Day 5

October 20, 2013 - Day 5 Well I had to put the jeans back on today, not impressed. It's supposed to be 70*F in Oklahoma City so we'll see. https://www.google.ca/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=&oq=How+to+convert+mile+&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4TSCA_enCA389CA390&q=how+to+convert+mile+to+kilometre&gs_l=hp..2.0l4.

Oct 11, 2013 - Disembark & Fly Home

Our ship is small by today's standards and since we were already in port in Venice, disembarkation began right on schedule. Because we had an early flight, we purchased our airport transfer from the ship and we were off with group one. It went smoothly, we waited in the designated lounge until our number was called, scanned out with our sea pass cards, stopped in the terminal building, claimed our bags, and headed for the bus. Right on schedule, the bus started to pull away bound for the airport; but, stopped abruptly when one of the RCI...

Sep 25, 2013 - Day 4

Good morning everyone! Day 4 coming up and we're on our way to Flagstaff Arizona. But on the way, we'll stop somewhere in Texas. I need a new cowboy hat...woohoo! So much to see out here. I'm so lucky to see this beautiful country. Having so many laughs with Liz and making so many memories. It's awesome. Well, here are some pictures that I took yesterday from Illinois to Oklahoma.

Sep 17, 2013 - Albuquerque, NM to Oklahoma City, OK

(Sandi writing) We accomplished one of our goals today...get through New Mexico, Texas and into Oklahoma as fast as we could! We encountered fog leaving Albuquerque with the visibility at times down to a quarter of a mile. It wasn't until we entered Oklahoma that we got caught in a huge rain storm. Ron and I cannot remember when we ever drove through such hard and heavy rain. About the time we got off the freeway, the weather improved, so we got back onto I-40 and continued on. With black skies all around us, we are here in our motel room...

Sep 15, 2013 - Oklahoma City OK

We were slow to get moving today because, well, there was no need to do otherwise. We left about 11:00 and headed about 30 minutes north to the town of Guthrie. Guthrie was the original territorial capital of Oklahoma so at one point it was the boomingest (a new word?) town in the state. However when OKC was made the capital in 1910 the city of Guthrie kind of froze in time. The net result is that the town now is the largest continuous district on the National Register of Historic Places. The most impressive is the downtown area and its red...

Sep 14, 2013 - Oklahoma City OK

We kind of flip-flopped our plans for today and decided to stay in OKC for the day before we headed to dinner with Michele’s brother. We left the campground about 10:30 and headed into downtown to see the OKC National Memorial at the site of the Oklahoma City bombing. The site has a couple areas, dedicated to different aspects of the incident. There are walls at each end of the site that marks the entrances to the memorial that they call “The Gates of Time”. Each has a time etched into - 9:01 to mark the minute before the blast when...

Sep 13, 2013 - Oklahoma City OK

Happy Friday the 13th. The trip from Pawhuska took us back through beautiful Bartlesville then south about an hour through Tulsa, and then southwest to our home for a couple days in Oklahoma City. The less than 3 hour trip was very easy over mostly good roads with only a little rain just before we got into OKC. We got set up at the Twin Fountains RV Park and since we were hungry and our provisions were low, we opted to get some lunch, take something back to WalMart, continue our search for a bulb for the RV (finally got it!) then to do our...

Sep 13, 2013 - Oklahoma City, OK

On 9/11 we went back to Old Town. Just a quaint place to walk around and window shop. Then we did what Chuck wanted to do-visit the Snake Museum. As much as I don't like snakes the museum was interesting. Many, many live poisonous snakes all safely behind glass. There were several very informative videos about snakes. So I learned something, but still don't like snakes. Stopped at the casino a while that eve. 9/12 we drove from Albuquerque NM to Amarillo, TX. Had a little rain, but not enough to really bother us. Ate at a very touristy trap...

Sep 5, 2013 - Hannah Fly to Ireland

Well, it's time to take to the skies and wing my way to old Ireland. It's not quite so hectic or traumatic when we're not both heading off together. Foxy still has a few weeks reprieve from doggy prison since Joe won't join me until later in the month. He'll be saddled with the traumatic chore of putting her in the kennel. Oh, the stress of being a pet-lover and having a spoiled canine lady in the family. Joe dropped me at the airport and the check-in process went smooth as silk. We invested in the new Windows Surface Pro Tablets(we each...
