It is motivating to see my blog friends are interested in 'My Story" and that some of them are keen to find out what happens next. However, I'm sorry to say I might have to hold you in suspense for a little longer for two reasons. One is that Birthday Bear is nagging me to post about our last celebration and the second reason is that we fly away on another adventure tomorrow.
We are going to USA where we will visit our grandchildren and family in LA. Then we fly to Nashville and hire a car and drive to Gatlinburg in the Smoky Mts for a few days. Then we drive back to Memphis and board "The American Queen" steamboat for a "Thanksgiving" cruise down the Mississippi to New Orleans. I have never experienced a Thanksgiving celebration before. Then we fly home which will take 18 hours flying and umpteen hours waiting at airports after 3 days we should be home. We sure live a long way down under but I wouldn't swap it for anywhere else.
For those interested readers who wanted to know more about Bill's car floating away in a flood from my last post, he has written about it on his blog. 'Bill's Ponderings" He also has pre scheduled posts of where we will be on each day of our trip if you want to follow along. I might be able to post from my iPad occasionally. Please forgive me if I'm too busy having fun to have time to comment on your posts for a while.
Okay, Okay, Birthday Bear lets tell about your latest party!
For those new readers who may not know about our Birthday Bear Tradition read more here .
Bear has her books ready to go and she shows her love of dogs.
Mary on the left dressed Bear for Ann on the right.
Ann, Bill, Mary, Paul, Helen, moi and George waiting for lunch at "The Rare Pear" cafe. Bear was too engrossed in her book to eat lunch but when she saw the cakes cabinet that was different.
She was over there in a flash checking out the selection . It didn't take her long to point out the one she wanted, the biggest one of course.
