Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 116th week! 



 to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

  and hopefully much more!

So, it's only 5 days til Christmas 2016. Where did the time go?? Wow, I'm still catching up on deals way back in September. I am not READY for Christmas!!

But, I did get to head to Baltimore to celebrate my father-in-law's 80th in Baltimore MD just days ago and this photo is right outside a wonderful Italian restaurant called Brio, that I highly recommend! 

Well, Debbie Laity is helping me with "Christmas" ideas thanks to her contest. 

Here's the first one I found:

Beth Atalay oh, what a great way to put it! 

Patricia Kennedy I even have an aunt and a cousin who live in Annapolis, and didn't even think to set something up! My life was so crazy here with real estate up to the very second (and beyond) when we left to fly out. I figured out that there are many people all in that area that I could have seen, but it was about connecting with many parts of this blended family in a short period of time and I got to know them one-on-one much better. No regrets!

Kathleen Daniels I haven't really taken any around here, but I did take some of a bay all decorated, boats with Christmas lights where I was staying on the coast of Oregon--but I don't think that counts. Thank you for what you said--I appreciate that so much!

You sure look adorable in red and white, Ed Silva Did you know that the red and white colors came from an artist in 1931 (if I'm not mistaken) who was creating some advertising for Coke, and came up with the color scheme and the jolly and plump Santa, rather than the skinny elf-like Santa that used to be?? I learned that on NPR today!

Jeff Dowler you definitely brought your A game with this post and I loved that second pic you took of this the next night. 

Patricia Feager I thought this was the cutest thing!

Sharon Tara you would put any other Mrs. Santa to shame with that come hither look! Very sexy Ms. S!!

Brian England that's my hubby in the back with his new glasses on. That tree was HUGE and I had to edit it so that the people weren't so small.

Gayle, it was fun to recognize some of the holiday pictures of Rainers I had seen, and to see some I have missed.
