Philadelphia Here I Come!

Tina and I are leaving in the morning for Philadelphia. We're flying and will be back Sunday night. I can now comment on blogs with my phone at last! I actually checked "help" on my BlackBerry, got better advice this time, and can comment on blogs and post on my own. It's been really frustrating to read posts and not be able to comment on them. I can also mute my phone. I got wrong information from the Verizon store about how to do that, but a former student helped me with it on FB. So I'll leave some blog and FB updates when I can. Wish I'd known how to do that when I was on my cruise, but it worked out. I'll probably leave updates on FB because it's easier and less time consuming since I have to do all that with my thumbs. I'm not a teenager!

I'm really looking forward to seeing David and Maddie Saturday! We're going to talk and talk and talk! Can't wait!!

I discovered that the Reading Terminal Market has many $7 meals, so I'll be heading over there while Tina is at the conference. She'll have breakfast and other meals there. It will also be fun to check out the shops and all they have there. From what I read, it sounds like a good place to browse and shop. The Naked Chocolate Cafe and a gelato place are nearby, too, which will be ever so tempting. We'll have to find somewhere to have dinner unless we eat early at the Market. The hotel will have information.

It's supposed to rain Thursday and Friday, so that might curtail some of my sightseeing. I'll go on the historic walking tour if I can. Hope so but won't be walking all over the place in the rain. I'm taking a good book and some knitting and stay at the hotel. I'm easily entertained.

Have a wonderful time, Joy, and love to David and Maddie! We did one of the walking tours, and it was really interesting. I thought Elfreth's Alley (I think that's the right name) was really neat. Enjoy! Hugs, Beth

Enjoy! Too bad you are leaving Sunday night, cause I will be in Philly going to a Tom Goss show. Enjoy your time, and next time you are in the neighborhood, I might invade the party.

Joy said...

Hope so, Howard!

Will do, Beth and Kathy. Hope I get to meet Boy Toy, too.

A word about "former students": take care of your students and they will take care of you. I learn so much from my former students ....like you.
