Time Flies

Well as you can see, this blog is not as active as it should be. After our trip to New England, we were home for a little bit and went to Ocean City, Md with the Traveling Americans.

The Traveling Americans are a group of Fellow Good Sam members and are a great bunch of people.

Our next outting took us to Stafford, Va. Our Son, Todd, and his girlfriend, Beth, got married on November 18, 2006. It was a very nice wedding and we wish them many years of happiness together.

Saturday night my sister Julie called and let me now that my aunt Liz Phillips died. Well, change of destination from home in Maryland to the funeral in Ohio. On Sunday morning we went to the newly weds house, shared the sad news about Aunt Liz, had breakfest, said our goodbyes and was on our way to Ohio.

We stayed the first night on the road in Bedford, Pa. The tempatures were dropping and we were glad to have a full propane tank for heating the motorhome.

We arrived at Van Buran, Ohio late Monday afternoon and checked in to the campground for several days. We drove to North Baltimore for a super market, car wash and to find the location of the funeral home.

On Tuesday morning we drove to Fayette, Ohio and visited with my mother, my sister and her family. We returned to North Baltimore for the afternoon viewing. The only thing good about a funeral viewing is seeing family and friends that you have not seen in awhile.

The Funeral was held at noon on Wednesday and the funeral home was full of family and friends. Aunt Liz will be cremated so there was no trip to a gravesite.

We had lunch with my brother, Roger, some of his family, my sister, Julie and some of her family. We had a nice time and a nice visit.

Our trip home went well, but boy oh boy the east bound tolls of the Pa. turnpike will eat you up.
