Time For A Respite!

After working on that bedroom 
for two years!
I am plumb tuckered out!!(Gabby Hayes...1930's and 40's)

I am going to take a mini vacation.
A virtual vacation, mind you.
Come with me while I revisit some places that were most relaxing and pleasurable, when I visited last.
Nice view of my neighbor. I am sure she will enjoy me publishing her house!
Every journey begins with the first step so we will head out the driveway. I'm leaving before someone, namely  "Sweet Ole Bob" tells me to blow the pinestraw off the drive.
I'll leave this island paradise, looking for new attractions.

We'll just hop around the world a bit. 
I am skipping the part about the hospital!
Birthplace of Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini.
 Melodious enough to have been an aria. 
Isn't he handsome. Sam loves his Granny.
I told you he loves his Granny!
I told those kids not to photograph 
the Sweet Ole Bob and me!
Bob and I show up in all the world's 
famous playgrounds and casinos!

I am going to see if anyone can guess 
the next few locales.

A hint on the two above. They gave "all" in this place so that we may celebrate this weekend and all other weekends.
There is no way to guess the pic above. I just fell in love with this place and this gentleman.

I am a little rested now. We'll head home by way of:
 Upper center, Carnegie Hall. Pays the tuition. 
Did I tell you, Jon loves his Granny?

We're going home, soon! We'll be broke.
Our nation's breadbasket. Well the cattle's anyhoo!
The cornfield also produced the next nuclear engineer.
Oh, Tim loves his Granny VERY much! 
After getting a fine dose of our wonderful world and lots of family loving up, I am heading home. I'll see what kind of trouble I can stir up in Savannah. Gotta get some of that Chatham Artillery Punch and in two years I'll have another room done. Woo Hoo!!

Before I get started again, I am going to rest a wee bit.
I'll bet you thought this was me! Actually, this is Buddy. He does his resting in southern Illinois.

Hope you enjoyed the trip. Please leave a comment, they are like gifts. Be sure to guess where we went!
Linking to the fantastic parties:
Fabulous Friday

I LOVE this post, Ginger! No worrying about luggage getting lost, running out of cash, and no Montezuma's revenge! Unfortunately, I only recognize the Leaning Tower of Pisa! xo,

I just took a great trip with you and although I recognize some of those sites I don't really know where they are. Looks like you and SOB had a good time! (I just realized today what his initials spell!;>) xo Diana

What fun, Ginger! I'm getting ready for a little weekend getaway, and stopping by to visit you was an unexpected (virtual) bonus trip! Your relationship with your grandson sounds sweet and special -- lucky boy he is!

Have a safe, enjoyable weekend.

Hi Ginger. How can you possibly be rested up from that 'round the world tour? I'd need a vacation from my vacation. ;o) Great post. Enjoyed all of your images and getting a peek at your grands that love their granny so much. Take care.

Looks like everyone guessed most of your vacation spots, Kentucky Derby, the beaches of Normandy, Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Paris. Not too sure about the head!!
What fabulous memories!
