Traveling the MidWest

July 24, 2018 1 comment

For the past month and a half, we’ve been traveling in the MidWest (with stops in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana) with our friends of the Traveling Supremes Travel Club.  Since I am webmaster for the club, i posted a series of blogs of these travels.  The web site can be found by clicking here.

Because of the posts on that web site, I have not posted anything here for quite a while.  However, we are traveling on our own again, and have quite an ambitious schedule until we get back to Dallas in September.  This is to include Michigan, the UP, over to Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Mt. Rushmore.  So expect my posts to reappear here soon.

 

 

At work at Dinosaur

May 8, 2010 1 comment

This was a momentous week for us– both Romola and I went back to work!  Well, work: we’re volunteers at Dinosaur National Monument in far eastern Utah.  We work for a total of 32 hours per week (that’s 16 for Romola and 16 for me) in the visitor center.  Our job is to hand out maps and answer questions.   So far, it’s been fun meeting a huge variety of people.

We also have to learn a lot so that we can answer the many questions.  That in itself is pretty great, it is extremely interesting to learn about this area and the historically important dinosaur find (more dinosaur bones have been found at this site than anywhere else in the world).  Here we are, with out official shirts and smiles on:
