I was recently visiting one of my favorite blogs and the post of the day was the blogger’s trip  with her husband to Spain.  The photos were really beautiful.

Seriously, I know I will probably never be able to go to Spain. It is not in our budget or something we think about doing in the simple life we lead.

But…….I was able to get away for a few days with my husband to beautiful Rising Sun, Indiana, on the Ohio River. My sister and her husband joined us as well.

Casino on the Ohio River.I would like to share some of the special moments of our jaunt……

—  We were all sitting outside on a really pleasant evening just talking about this and that, and the talking led to laughing, the uncontrollable kind of laughing we always did as children.  We laughed until we cried!  Remember?

—  I took a “selfie” of all of us!  Only my second one in my life.  They seem kinda silly to older folks, until you take part in one.  What fun!I


—  I just recently started “Texting” and love it!  I can keep in touch with my son during the day, and connect with my dear sweet nieces.

The problem I have is that it takes me forever to complete one line.  Constantly touching the wrong key, deleting and typing over and over again.

I have a feature on my phone that allows you to speak into the phone and it will type your message. I tried it!  What a hoot!

I spoke into the phone and it never typed what I said, and seemed to pick up what everyone else was saying around me. It was as if it had a mind of its own.  When speaking into the phone to complete a “text” to my niece about her father, it ended up saying “he is the fattest”, what the heck, I didn’t say that!  Again, we laughed at what the darn thing was typing until we cried.  We almost wet our capris!

–  As my conversation with my sister continued, we decided to call our brother in New York City.  It seemed like the perfect time for us to connect with him.  We spoke to each other and all said, “I love you, and miss you so much”.  We are criers, and after we hung up, our eyes were filled with tears. Denny is a lovely person, so very dear to us.  He is the baby of the three of us.

Rising Sun, Indiana is not Spain, but I wouldn’t trade the moments we shared together that evening for a trip anywhere.

What a joyful time for all of us!
