  • The Edward Gorey House

    The Edward Gorey House

    I love Edward Gorey. I’ve talked about him before today. I’m happy to report that we made the pilgrimage to his house, The Edward Gorey Museum. It was a thrill to stand in his former home, to marvel at his many drawings and works on view. We spent several hours there, and we even ate […]

  • Day Trip to NYC

    Day Trip to NYC

    For Christmas, my darling bought me the experience (and shoes) of custom made sandals. COVID-19 was in full roar, so we had to postpone our trips to Jutta Neuman’s shop in NYC. We went up for an initial consultation, and they traced my feet. We made a weekend of it, and had a wonderful time.…

  • The Rascal Belt Bag

    The Rascal Belt Bag

    Inspired by my pal’s recent travel blog tips, I thought I’d share something here, too. I’ve rediscovered the fanny pack. I love bags, luggage, backpacks, etc. How I stopped using a fanny pack in the mid-1990’s escapes me, but I’m making up for lost time. That’s right – the fanny pack is back! I didn’t…

  • The Old San Juan

    The Old San Juan

    We spent 8 days on Puerto Rico, and it was wonderful. Here are a few key moments, aside from the big one. We rented an AirBNB in Condado, San Juan. It was a block from the ocean, and walking distance to a lot of restaurants, shops and other hotels. I think Old San Juan was…

    Of alligators and other alligators

    We went to Florida for a quick trip to visit our parents. I wanted to post some of these pics, which include alligators, pickle ball, lovely beaches and a surprise light-up toilet.

  • California Dreaming

    California Dreaming

    Over a 1300 mile+ drive, my darling and I explored northern California. Neil, if you’re reading this, I apologize for not being able to visit due to time constraints. We started in Sacramento, then attended a memorial service in McArthur, way up north. We drove down to Eureka, then on to Ft. Bragg, then San…
