 I don’t suppose you need me to do a travel diary here anymore but I’ll definitely use this thread to post updates and my journey to the bench. :) 

Maybe not an "every 10 minutes" diary, but PLEASE share your thoughts and photos here - I know many of us are excited to hear from you about this adventure

Of course I will!! It wouldn’t feel right going to New Jersey without sharing it with you all

Dear Marsha 

Just because this thread has slipped down the board, i know you know we havn't forbidden you

My garden is full of roses so i see you every day

Have you bumped into Gary's Melanie yet?

I know you had a much wider range of music you listened to then i do, she will be listening to classic heavy metal 

I watched a Christmas movie on netflex- i remember how much more you love Christmas than me so i thought of you 

Love always

we havn't forgotten you

I'll just quickly edit 'forbidden' to 'forgotten', but yes, this can't be stressed enough. 

I hope the promised land is serving Marsha well, and in assuming what that place is like, I've gotta say I'm a little jealous knowing she's already seen the upcoming No Nukes film and is currently enjoying that early Steel Mill footage filmed in 4K.

I was supposed to fly to NJ yesterday and of course keep updating you all but sadly I had to go to A&E last Tuesday and only got out of hospital yesterday so I’ve postponed my trip by like a week hopefully. I’m still recovering and taking each day slowly but hopefully I can see the bench soon!

Of course it’s the absolute worst thing that could’ve happened and my biggest nightmare but honestly I’m just glad to have made it out of hospital and breathing some salty sea air would be amazing

thank you Kerien (did i spell you right ?)

much appreated

lucky Marsha taught 2nd grade, so she's seen it all in the bad spelling dept

year, she'll be up there with Obie Dziedzic digging through the fault, looking down on Zimmy (probably hopping to edit down all KIttys ):lol:

Sorry to hear this Rachel, but at least it is only delayed. 

Hoping you feel better VERY quickly

So now I’ve rebooked everything I just started organising all of my stuff and started packing. This is my first time going to New Jersey in almost 2 years…

Before I started, I came across a card that Marsha gave me and on the envelope it reads ‘Welcome Home’

maybe a sign? Maybe not. But I’ll take it. It made me cry 

It’s from the first time I flew by myself back in April 2019 to stay with Marsha & Ray, and when we went to the APFF.
