Going to Buffalo/Niagara Falls

I found out this past week that a friend of mine that I went to school with has a stroke and 3 aneurisms in her brain.  She was hospitalized and stabilized.  By a miracle of God, she is alive and the aneurisms have seemed to disappear.  Rich and I are driving out next week while Sarah is in camp to go visit.  She may be in a rehab facility by then.  Rich and I are going to be trying something different this time.  It is called Couchsurfing.  Basically it is a website that hooks travelers up with people willing to give them a place to stay while they are away.  We got lucky and are going to be staying at someones house near Buffalo.  They seem great and are even trusting us with a set of keys!  They said act like its a hotel and they are making us dinner too!  Crazy.. Rich was teasing me and saying maybe they are swingers and they are going to hit on us.  I said no.. they have references online and don't seem like that.  This will save us some money too.  Hard to believe complete strangers offer to do this!  I wouldn't mind hosting either, but our house is not that great and I've said so on the website.  If we do host, Sarah won't be here just to be on the safe side.  I don't want some creepo trying something with her.  
Anyhow.. I am hoping this experience will be good.  I have a feeling it will be.
I went riding today.  I tried riding in an English saddle but every time I tried trotting Honey dropped her head and I almost went over her neck!  I think I will stick with the western saddle!  Next week they are going to show me the riding trails in the woods.  That will be a nice change of pace.


  1. Sorry about your friend. May God continue to bless and heal her! I think the couch surfing thing sounds like adventure. Have a good trip! - Barbara

  2. I'm sorry your friend has to go through this. Never heard of couch surfing, but what a great idea! Can't wait to hear your experience ~

  3. So very sorry about your friend. Will keep her in prayer.
    I've heard about couch surfing but never did it. Couldn't now that Johnny is on hospice. I'm looking forward to hearing how it went.
