Best Example of Progress 

Deciding it's time to dive into the 21st century and get a cell phone because a lot of my stress from the beginning of my trip could have been alleviated had I actually owned one!

BTW, just advised that my travel blog site, Travelpod, is shutting down after 20 years in service. Fear not my loyal readers....I will find another site that will offer the same type of service. It may look different, but the content will continue.

See you next trip!!

Shelley, see May 14th, the picture titled 'a couple of lovely birds'. I have it on there, but a bit hard to see cause it's so flat.


Totally missed that post for some reason. But...nice hat,yes, you'll have lots of places to wear that!
