July 27th, 2018


As I start this post I am back in Seattle and will head to my hotel this afternoon. I catch a plane tomorrow morning to go back to KS again. My day as it unfolds: Until then I am starting out in the Capitol…

July 17th, 2018


I am typing this while on an airplane heading back home. I have been in Kansas visiting family for almost a week. Cancer is rearing its ugly head in the family again, this time affecting my dad. We are staying optimistic, waiting for the…

Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9. When we got to the station it was right on time to catch our first train of the day to go to Amsterdam, and to finish the trip a train change…

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central…

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg


Our hotel was in a central area near downtown so the train stops were not very far apart for where we wanted to go. The area we were in was very interesting to see in the daylight. Most of the buildings were not what…

Europe – Day 7 – January 31st, 2018: London, England and Brussels, Belgium


That’s right…back to the Continent today. We got up and went back to the bakery I went to yesterday and grabbed a fresh croissant with ham and cheese, coffee, and another piece of raspberry torte. Our train was not until this afternoon so we…

Europe – Day 6 – January 30th, 2018: London, England


Today we got up early to go to the launderette. We were both out of clean clothes and this was a good day to do it since we had the opportunity. It was just a few blocks away but we had to get breakfast…

Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England


Cheers from our next stop…London! We flew into London and arrived around noon or so. Not as early as we wanted and the plane boarding and leaving late was unacceptable. We flew easyJet and they were pretty disorganized. Flight attendants were nice but the…

Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland


We got some really good sleep last night (8 hours!) in Dublin. We both missed out on a couple of things we wanted to see but we had to have some downtime to get over walking an average of six miles a day on…

January 23rd, 2018


Vacation is officially underway! Jim flew in last night from KC and boy are his arms tired! We have been so excited for this trip and it is finally and really happening! We had breakfast and then took off to do some running around….

January 21st, 2018 – Making a List… Checking it twice…


We’re not talking Santa here. We’re talking about Europe! It’s been a long wait since buying those tickets two and a half months ago. Many sleepless nights, spending a few dollars buying some travel items, weighing the backpack repeatedly, whittling down the contents of it…

You’re Gonna Feel a Little Sting…


I had a blood test a few days ago to get my cholesterol checked. While they were at it, they tested my blood for antibodies for MMR vaccines. Well, I have antibodies for both of the “Ms” but not the “R” and that means…
