Trip Log

January 25, 2022

I'll catch up with pictures on past posts. Been cool here for a few days, 28 yesterday morning and 48 this morning but it warms up quickly with the sunlight and hardly any wind. We get to wear jeans, long sleeve shirts and sweaters for a change.

January 23, 2022

The blog has lost its connection to Flickr, where I store all of my pictures. So, I will add pictures to new posts when that connection issue gets resolved. Alesa will be having cataract surgery on her left eye on Wednesday.

January 12, 2022

Alesa had surgery on her right eye this morning. She will have the left eye done in a couple of weeks. She is getting new lenses in the process so she should no longer have to wear glasses. She is doing very well but will rest for the remainder of the day to let the 'drugs' wear off.

January 1, 2022

Left Orangeburg early on the morning of the 30th and pretty much missed all the traffic. Google routed us around an accident when we reached Florida.

December 29, 2021

Our next-door neighbor in the Villages, Lois, moved to the Charlotte area a few years ago and we try to visit and stay with her whenever we pass through the area. Again, due to covid, we decided not to stay and to just have lunch with her and continue on toward home.

December 28, 2021

Drove down to Harrisonburg, Virginia today to visit with Mike Hulvey, Alesa's cousin. Craig and Janet spent Christmas with their daughter Kate and her family in Frederick, MD. Since Craig has not seen his cousin for about 40 years we asked them to join us.

December 27, 2021

Today was our 52nd wedding anniversary and we were greeted by snow this morning which was great to see but it was gone by noon. We visited with my sister Marilyn and Helen who arrived as we were leaving to take Marilyn for a doctor appointment.

December 26, 2021

Left Mike's early this morning and drove to State College where Elyse is isolated with covid 19. We dropped off gifts at her door and visited from afar. We also picked up some groceries to get her through her isolation. She should be headed home for New Years.

December 25, 2021

Had the Zoom session with Mike, Lisa, Annika, Alesa and me here, Jeff, Danielle, Bailey and Bridget in Arizona and Elyse in State College. Since we are separated at Christmas, we have been doing a secret Santa name draw for the last two years which makes gift giving much less complicated.

December 24, 2021

Thought I would do an early posting before things get festive (crazy). Went to Paris Baguette, a pastry shop, to check out their goodies and bought a few before heading next door to the H Mart Elkins Park. It's a gigantic Korean food market with a lot of specialties.
