I would guess my folks wanted to stop the car, open the back door, kicking my sister and me off to the side of the road, and drive on in peaceful aloneness. How many times were they asked that question, and how many times did it go unanswered? The query lingers in my memory, recalling… Continue reading Are We There Yet?
It is not only a surprise but also a delight when you run into someone you know while traveling in another city, state or country. Even if San Miguel de Allende in Mexico is one of the more popular cities in the world, it still is shocking and thrilling to bump into hometown folks. That… Continue reading Whose Way is Better?
Finally, I’m off on my travels to our southern neighbor, that would be Mexico in case you are wondering which neighbor I’m referencing.
