Trip Log 3.1

It’s been a long time since we traveled together. May was our last business trip. We did go to Chattanooga together in July for a Bible Study, its was great, but not like our business travel! We are now on a five-week trip! Through Michigan, into Canada, Maine, New Hampshire, DC area, upstate New York,…

Available 

I got home from a ten-day trip last night. Thought I’d be home until mid-September. But I told God I would “Be available” two years ago. So when someone very dear to me calls and says, “I need to visit a sick friend five hours away, will you pick me up Thursday and take me?”…

Trip Log 2.4

No, I am not going to write a daily diary of what happened each of the past thirteen days! (Did I hear a collective sigh of relief?) That doesn’t mean this won’t be a long post. 😜 In my last Trip Log, I wrote that I was in Chattanooga for a couple of weeks. I’ll…

Trip Log 2.3

Yes, I’m late with this. I’ll explain why later. Friday, April 29 through Sunday, May 1. We arrived in Staten Island Friday night in time for dinner and then drove to the Ferry Terminal to check out parking options. My sweet friend, Camille, arrived about midnight. We got up Saturday morning and had a nice…

Trip Log 2.2

The rep had forgotten to tell him the days were switched: today he’ll be in Grand Rapids, then in Kalamazoo tomorrow. We still have to back…

 Trip Log 1.3

The Star Date 3/14/2016 Monday  We got to our Washington, D.C. hotel just blocks from the White House minutes before Ron’s 2:00 audit committee meeting started. He handed the valet the keys, went to his meeting, and left me to check in. No big deal, right? One problem: Hotels around here take security very seriously.…

Trip Log 1.2

Star Date 3/7/16 Monday  This is how we do conference calls on the road. Notice my fun colored pencils for my Bible study and the postcards for the kids and grandkids! I worked with my headphones on while Rachel and Ron talked with engineering and marketing back in Texas. I wore headphones because their conversations are…
