Memorial Day weekend....

I have been having a great time visiting family and friends in Delaware for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.  The beach has been phenomenal with sunny skies and warm temperatures.  Today I was at my sister's house for a wonderful family get together…  I even got a special shirt for the occasion.  I don't understand it, everyone laughed at my new shirt….  Oh well

Looking to the future...

So, here’s the deal…… First of all, I am continuing my blog at a slightly different address. That is why you were directed here. The new address is  The other site was getting so big that I decided to continue at a new address. I am in the process of planning a couple long road trips. Both will involve visiting a number of National Parks… The first one will probably be in July concentrating on Colorado, North & South Dakota, Montana, Oregon, Utah and whatever... The second one will begin the beginning of September and go for about 45 days with the last big stop in Albuquerque for the International Balloon Fiesta. The concentration here will be the Southwest.
