May 30, 2013 - BUSY and Connection not great!

Dear Family and Friends, Pardon us for not having an entry sooner, but we have been very busy and the Internet connection in our room is not good! We had an absolutely hilarious sitcom routine in the Frankfort airport. We saw a golf cart ready to transport people, and as we needed to make our way through this enormous airport from concourse C to A, we innocently asked in our shrinking violet voices if we could hitch a ride to our gate. The man in charge looked dubious and asked if we had preordered the service . We said no, and he spent the...

May 27, 2013 - Let the Good Times Roll

Charlotte Airport Amazingly, we made it to Gail's exactly on time, and we were both within half of pound of each other's luggage,and a half lb. of the 50 lb. weight limit. There was a moment of consternation when it became apparent that we were going on very different trips. Gail was dressed in warm gear with a scarf, and I was in a sleeveless shirt and carrying a sun hat destined for someplace warm. Janice brought gourmet salads for both of us of avocado, yoghurt and cherries to eat before takeoff in Myrrtle Beach. The journey from Myrtle...

May 24, 2013 - Writing from my new mini-IPad

Last evening, I went online to each of the three hotels where we will be staying to see about computer availability for guests. While each of them appear to be quite lovely, they are not designed for business travelers. Each has wii-fi in the rooms however. So rather than search about for an Internet cafe (which was fun in Paris when we were on our own), I decided to spring for a mini-IPad, which is what I am writing this entry from right now! I've been contemplating getting one for some time, and this seems as good a time as any. So here I...

May 21, 2013 - Picked up my Euros Today!

Still in Pawleys Island! But, we are now just a few days out, as we leave on Monday. Today I picked up the Euros I had ordered at the bank. I love to look at foreign money, and think about the fun I will be having off in some exotic place as I spend it. Yesterday, my little travel bag for my watercolors arrived. Janice and I hope to carve out some time here and there to do some sketching and painting, as the other tour participants are not artists. I think the time has about come for me to stop talking about this trip, and actually do it! I...

May 15, 2013 - Janice, My Travel Companion, and Me

We are currently 11 days out from our leave-taking. This is a photo taken today of Janice Coward, my trusty travel companion, and me. We will meet up with our fellow travelers in Milan, and will be led by Larry Ligo, an art historian at Davidson College in NC. Larry advises that the focus of the tour is on art, gardens, great food, and we hope, great wine! Sounds like my kind of tour! Janice and I hope to be smiling like this as we return, as well. Fondly, Gail

May 14, 2013 - Trying again to load photo from I-phone

Hello Again, I think I have uploaded a photo from my I-phone into the computer and into the trip journal. Bill was right--there is a panel that slides open on the FRONT of the computer, revealing TWO slots that will accept my I-phone cord. It still has taken me about 45 minutes to figure out how to open the I-phone storage and get it to show up on the upload to the journal, but I think I have done it! Yes! Wish me luck! Fondly, Gail

May 13, 2013 - Downloading photos from I-phone still a mystery

I thought I understood how to download photos from my I-phone to this site, but when I tried this evening, I could not find a port for my USB cord. I had to pull the big box of the computer forward, and turn it around, but still could see no port, on the front or back. I imagine myself trying to do this in a foreign hotel. I used the STD card from my regular camera earlier, and that worked. Bill wonders if a hotel computer will be equipped with media slots. Hmmm...More to figure out. We leave two weeks from today!

Mar 21, 2008 - Boondocking in Pawleys Island

Left home around 11AM for the start of a two week adventure on the road with the "Cats". Both the two boats and the two pets! We spent the night with our good friends, Jose and Donna, boondocked in their driveway in Pawleys Island. This is our favorite stop when in the area! Donna fixed us a yummy dinner of broasted chicken and fixin's. Then we let Jose beat us at "LIVERPOOL RUMMY" not once but twice. Good Times, food and lots of laughs, as always!
