Thoughts about my life now that I am a Senior Citizen. Probably only interesting to a few people who know me but a way to share my travels with family and friends.

Catch-up with all the news June and July
Hello again everyone. Time to do a little catchup as I have fallen behind as usual. This is the Rose of Sharon that my mother bought for me for my birthday the summer before she passed away. It is in the corner of my little back yard of the condo. The umbrella is in my neighbour's backyard.
I survived Washington with no permanent damage. Sprained ankle healed in about 10 days. We went to the Air and Space Museum out by Dulles Airport the next day. Fabulous place. We got to see the Space Shuttle and the Canada Arm. Stairs were difficult but I found ramps and elevators. Tons and tons of airplanes, gliders, helicopters and spacecraft from every era. We had a great time. The hotel staff again was excellent. They gave great directions and if Washington transport was better we would have done well. It seems the bus to the Airport and the shuttle to the Museum do not coordinate so we had a bit of waiting to do. But it was worth the wait.
The rest of May was taken up with Stratford. Frances and I went to Cymbeline on May 18th at the Tom Patterson Theater. It was great. Then we saw The Matchmaker on the Festival Stage. The Matchmaker is a non-musical version of Hello Dolly. It concentrates on the comedic side of the play and was very funny. Even though you knew the ending it didn't feel stale. On the 29th we saw the first play that we had planned on seeing - 42nd Street. Glitzy and glamourous it was fabulous.
