The Cruisers are Heading South- Twice

Nov 2013

Time to make a quick trip south so Mom can get back into the swing of things in Florida.
And, It was an uneventfull trip down. Which is what we want, but is not necesarily exciting.

We are hopping over to see Judy in Naples and then Rud and Gabi in Ft Myers, looping back to Mom's and flying home.

Dec 31/2012-Jan 2/2013

Were off to a quick start, or so we thought. Driveaway car is packed, fridge is empty, heat is turned down and coffee is in the to go cups. But one look at each other says we better not cross the border until we visit a walk in clinic. We are both suffering from the flu , the one with the nasty sinus infection, ear infection and sore throat.

After a 2 hour wait and antibiotics we are finally on our way at the crack of noon.

I know it’s New Years Eve, but have they closed the border? There are NO cars and No trucks lined up. We’re the only ones, so guess what? We breeze through in 5 minutes.

Must be something about Buffalo because no sooner do we cross than we hit the ice fog, all the way through to Morgantown , These 2 New Years Eve party animals stop by 5:00 pm, grab dinner and crash for the night with out dose of antibiotics. Totally missed 2013 arriving, but I’m sure for the rest of you, it arrived just fine.

A couple more days of cloud and rain and we are in Sunny Florida, where the antibiotics have kicked in and we both feel better.
