Blog Update From Farm Today I will take a break from organizing and packing for our upcoming trip so I can update you on what has been happening at the Cannell/Daly Farm. Here is the farm house where Elaine spent part of her childhood years:

8/17/12 Hi from the Daly Farm (which used to be the Cannell Farm, where Elaine grew up). Elaine’s sister, Georgeanne, and her husband, Dennis live here and we are parked on the grass on the other side of their driveway. Our rig will stay here while we drive our car to Chicago to the airport to fly to Copenhagen on Aug. 30. In the meantime, we are trying to get organized and packed, while also having social times with family members. One of Elaine’s sisters, Mary Sue, who we are especially close to from our days of having her live near us in California, is in the hospital after having a hip transplant. We have been in to visit her every day since our arrival, except today. Today she was moved to a rehab place where she will stay for the next 2 weeks. She has been doing very well, even walking around in the halls with a walker. On our way here, we have been having some nice social times with friends along the route. Our first stop in Michigan was in Dundee, where there is a very nice Cabellas (sporting goods store). The little town was slightly interesting and we walked downtown near the river and old mill building.

Hi from Dundee, Michigan. We stopped here at a Cabela’s store for 2 nights in order to use their free RV parking, dump, and get water, as well as catch up on laundry. Tomorrow we will head up to Lansing for a visit with Elaine and George Lewter. Elaine and Elaine moved out to California together when they were 21, so they have been good friends for a LONG time. As we have been driving across from Maine, we have been stopping occasionally to see some of the sights. Usually we stop at the Visitor’s Center as we cross into a new state to get a map and information book and pamphlets, then read about upcoming things and decide what to see. Seneca Falls, NY had a nice Elks Lodge and is the location of the Women’s Rights National Historical Park, as well as the Women’s Hall of Fame, so we stayed there three nights.
