Sir Harrison loves walking over to visit Princess Maria.Continue reading “Sir Harrison’s Walk”
I just love showing off the downtown area of my new home, so before Jared left for home we had to take him there. There is so much history there.
I love all the old buildings. They remind me of the time I lived in England.Continue reading “Downtown York, PA”
Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.
Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.Continue reading “Princess of York”
Living in Alaska in a cabin in the woods you learn about cabin fever and how to protect yourself from it. I know we are supposed to stay in but they are recommending outside activities like hiking or walking. I know that is what always helped me was to get outside and move. Thanks to Harrison we always take him for a walk, well at least for the little over a week we have had him. Of course, I say that as I look at the rain coming down outside. I really don’t want to smell wet dog the rest of the day. We have several times had to wait until the rain stopped to go. Hopefully, we will this time too. Looks pretty gray outside though.Continue reading “Coronavirus and Harrison”
After the loss of Alice, David and I decided when we got a house with a yard we would adopt another dog. We started looking while we were in Seattle. I filled out applications at different rescues. David had done research on Great Pyrenees and thought one would fit into our family great.
We got approved by several rescues but by that time the female dogs we wanted were gone. Then Lee called from Operation Paws for Homes to talk to us. We were approved but once again the female dog we wanted was gone. She told us about Sweetheart Harrison who tested positive for heart worm and would not available until March 12th. We got back from Seattle March 10th. She told us that he was very sweet but no one wanted him because of his size. We thought about it for about 1 minute. Then we said we want him. We started talking to the foster Mom, Becky, she told us all she knew about Harrison. She was sending us photos of him. We were starting to love him before we met him. It was decided that we would pick him up on Friday, March 13th. This day will always be lucky to us.
Harrison was in Virginia. Becky told us she would meet us halfway. We met in Maryland.

We have been checking out all the different happenings in downtown York. We went to checkout FestivICE.
The day started getting the girls dressed in their winter gear. I remember doing this with all my kids. By the time you got number 5 dressed number one was coming back in.
There were quite a few ice sculptures. They were so small compared to the ones in Alaska.
The girls enjoyed looking at the ice sculptures and even got to sit in an Ice throne.
Kate and Bekka loved the huge bubble.
The girls got to meet the local mascots. A Raven and the Abominable Snowman.
The best thing was the 40ft ice slide.
Bekka really enjoyed it so Mommy took her back for another ride while Daddy and Grandpa watched Kate. Mommy had to take her because Daddy barely fit on the slide.
I just had to get a photo of the radio DJ’s coat.
These were painted on a wall. They tell some of the odd history of York. Be sure to read what they say.
It was a small festival but we enjoyed it. I think it had a lot to do with watching the reactions of our granddaughters, Kate and Bekka.
Thanks for stopping by.
I know I have been slow about writing but things are moving along very well here. David and I have gotten our Pennsylvania drivers license. We are waiting on a new title from Alaska to register our car because ours must be in Edmonton, Canada. We both got a local number and registered to vote. I guess we are becoming real Pennsylvanians. I guess that is what you call someone from PA.
Thanksgiving wasn’t our norm. We ordered our dinner from Cracker Barrel. It was ok but not what we were used too.Continue reading “New Life”
New state, new house and new bugs all in York. You don’t think about things like insects when you move. We have tons of spiders and this weird bug.
I am sure that we will be a lot of new things in our new home.
Thanks for stopping by!
We got our first snow here in York, PA. It snowed about 2 inches and was gone by the afternoon.
It has not been freezing much since we have been here. It has been up to 50 during some of the days. So far a very mild winter compared to what I am use to.
Thanks for stopping by!
Heather and I decided to have a little daughter/granddaughter time. We walked down to our local park, Penn Oaks Park. We loaded the wagon with Bekka and Kate and off we went.Continue reading “Penn Oaks Park”
