Life happens and the Travel Gypsy's plans have been changed. My mom needs my help and I am going to keep home base in Michigan to give it. My mom is Wanda Hayes and will be 93 on August 8 this year. She still beats the family at cards and is a delight to be around. Our current card game is usually Five Crowns. A few years ago my very talented brothers and sister and their spouses worked together to create an extremely nice studio apartment for Mom in my sister's home. My mom gave us a scare in January by going to the hospital for dehydration and for falls. I left New Hampshire about 5 days earlier than planned to get home quickly. Thanks to Steve, Thom, Dan, Alex, and others from Home Depot in Plaistow for helping my daughter empty my apartment. Because of their kindness, I was able to leave early on Saturday January 28th and get to Michigan by the next day.
I am glad to say Mom is much better now. She has more strength and can walk short distances with her walker or her cane. Such a relief.
This coming Sunday I am still traveling to Boston to spend a week with my daughter, Ronda and grandchildren, Aria and Nate. Last week Nate's basketball team became the local champions! It was Nate's first year playing and he really enjoyed being on the team. Next week is their winter break from school and we plan to have fun all week. At the end of the week we will be spending the night in downtown Boston's Loew Hotel, having dinner in the Precinct Bar and Grill and seeing Shen Yun, the Chinese dance program. The Precinct Bar and Grill is in the old Boston Police precinct. That should be an interesting bit of history to see.
On March 9th I will be traveling to Phoenix to start a road trip to San Diego, California with my son Robert and granddaughter's Elliot and Selah. I won't detail plans here now but will write about it when I return.
May the roads you travel be kind to you.
Love from the Road Gypsy,
