I am BACK...
« on: July 16, 2015, 11:23:25 AM »
Back on line.
We drove (the wife drove, I  read the maps)  from here through WIsconsin, to Ontario. From there across and down to Vermont. From Montpeiller to St. John.  Used the Digby Ferry and visited Lunenburg ( Gotta go to the Salt Shaker Deli .. Best Pizza Ever),  Mahone Bay, Hubbards, Antigonish, Cheticamp, Amherst, back into the US at Calias (Don't eat at the pizza shop after the border crossing),  Then down the Maine Coast  to Rockland, (Berry Manor is excellent.  The Admiral Inn sucks big time. )  then to New Hampshire to visit a friend of the wife's.  Came down across New York State, dipped down into  Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and home.   The wife hates interstate highways, so we used the red county roads.  Took longer but we made it home before it rained.

Saw a lot of ruined farm fields in Indiana and Illinois. Looked like some folks lost their crops for good due to wind, rain and flooding.  Route detours for over the road water.

Anyway, home.   Gone a month and need to get back into the groove.

Just in time for the Back to School sales at Target.  My god, its mid July!!!

I know you will want to get a jump on coloring items to keep yourself busy when school starts.

Glad you had a nice vacation.   That is two big trips. Any plans for the next one?



You can't phase me-I teach Middle School.

Yes,  But I am retired, so no school supplies.  This year I am subbing at only 3 high schools, no middle or elementary.  On the other side, DAMN  it is hot outside today.
