Getting started…


For a few months now, a friend & I have talked about starting our own blog.  We both regularly travel and are always amazed at the things/people/stuff we see on our trips.  We have even gone so far as to start taking pictures so that we can show people the things we see.  So, this blog started from that place thus the name.

However, I suddenly find myself grounded.  My son was diagnosed with epilepsy about a year ago and now we are in the hospital prepping for surgery tomorrow.  That is the absolutely horrific part.  The silver lining is that a hospital is a breeding ground for truly amusing things.  So, it has evolved into more of just a traveling through life with humor.  Because, we are all in it together and there is only one way out…

Now, fair warning, I have a rather macabre sense of humor that is not for the feint of heart.  I was raised in a family that believed if you can’t laugh then what’s the point.  We laughed at the funeral of a relative when a dog peed on one of the pall bearers legs while we were graveside.  So, if that type of humor found even in the darkest moments doesn’t appeal to you, then this is not the blog for you.

Anyway, that lets you know where I am at this moment.  Full mental picture, sitting in a recliner in my sons room, laptop across my legs, parents across the room (dad is sleeping), son in his hospital bed looking like a Q-Tip watching the first Harry Potter for the 900th time (thank you JK Rowling).  Later today, I will try to post some stories from earlier in the week.  Remind me to tell you about the family of 22 (only 6 of which were adults) in the family waiting room that has a maximum of 2 people policy.
