Rt 66 Wandering #5 – Henry’s Drive-In and Cindy Lyn Motel

As some of you may know, I grew up just outside of Chicago, near Route 66. Exploring some of the old Rt 66 stomping grounds has been an intriguing past-time. I’m working towards putting them all together into a travelogue titled “Route 66 Wandering”. Sounds corny doesn’t it? Oh, well.  Sometimes, you just can’t help […]

Car-Free and Charmed in Philadelphia

I’ve always wanted to see what it was like to live in large city and get around without a car.  I know people do it all the time, I had just never experienced it myself.  But when my son parked his car on the street after our day trip to Valley Forge and Amish Country, […]

Breezing Through Amish Country. Is it Worth It?

The Amish people have always been somewhat of a fascination for many of us. The fact that these people forgo all of the modern necessities for a simpler life style seems almost unbelievable in this crazy, mixed up world. But like the doubting Thomas that I am, I wanted to see it for myself. Now, […]

Salem witch museum and a visit to Salem Massachusetts on Halloween of 2014

Postcards from Salem Massachusetts on Halloween

Last fall at this time, my son and I were in Salem Massachusetts on Halloween.  I never imagined I’d visit this town, let alone on the one day of the year where the town’s claim to fame plays a primary role in the day’s celebrations.  Ken, my husband, didn’t get to go, so these are […]

Bacon, Eggs and Bears in Gatlinburg

Route 66 DIY Dartboard Scoreboard

The basement is morphing into a game room one little project at a time.  Just as well considering when you walk down the stairs, one of the first things you see is a standard sized pinball game.  That baby takes up a lot of room.  But it’s one of Ken’s babies, so it’s a keeper… […]
