“Must take some last minute “sight-seeing” Trips with friends!”
“Belle of St. Louis” – Day Trip!
My neighbor, Jackie Jansen and I took a “Day Trip” on the “Belle of St. Louis” and we really enjoyed the whole trip, which included a delicious meal. I can not remember now, the name of one of the St.Louis Radio stations, personalities’ name – who with his family were also enjoying a terrific “Summer” trip up and down the Mississippi River – – and lots of the fellow travelers would stop him and talk for long periods of time – – but… and since “Jackie and I” were so close by – – we were able to hear and enjoy the conversations going on – – all without disturbing anyone.
Jackie and I, would try going somewhere each weekend – a weekend that we were free to do something that – we maybe had not done before. Several of our trips were with regular scheduled groups and took up almost the whole day and due to the length of time – even included two (2) meals. We sure did our fair share or more of visiting everything and everywhere – in and around the Saint Louis area!
Just thought that I would add this PHOTO – – only because the “dress” is that very same dress as in the above – – but there is a difference of maybe thirty (30) years of wearing it. Sometimes – some dresses are very nice – – look nice and feel good to wear – but just seem to be too far back in the closet – and just do not seem to be the kind of dress to wear too often – – could just be the “BIG DOTS” – – and the dress would be remembered by everyone – – if worn too many times – – with the same crowd.
This PHOTO was taken when “we” from left…ME , grandson, Alan and my son, Al were visiting German St. Vincent’s for an “old class mates reunion” – – and we were taking a tour of the HOME – – and of course this is the “Sacred Heart Chapel” – – where we were at Mass at six o’clock every morning – – lots of memories – – and so many “PRAYERS” said that were not answered, then – – but are in the “Bank of PRAYERS” – – which… when needed, later – – over the many years of my LIFE – – have brought Blessings – – that I can now give THANKS for – – as they were “LIFE” saver “BLESSINGS” – – now that I think back over the many years.
