I’m starting my new blog on the day my husband and I traveled to Lancaster. I am typing this from the Fulton Steamboat Inn a beautiful motel, on the hottest day. thus far, this summer. Thanks to our daughter, Janine, who designed my blog heading, I’m beginning this adventure, and know I will enjoy it. I hope you will, too. After nearly thirty years of being on-air at WRGN radio, the last four hosting “Shirl And You,” I have chosen to continue my voyage of encouragement and hope you find this site to be just that. Some of you will remember how I would say this program is not complete without you and it is still true now as “Shirl and You” continues on this blog. Your comments are important to me.
By the way, I was reading recently about what it was like to find a place to stay, while traveling in stage coach days. Since inns were few and far between, no guests were dismissed with, “no room in the inn.” Instead, a traveler was expected to share his room with others and not only his room but also his bed. Imagine sharing your room with a complete stranger. Friendly or not-so -friendly roommates would slip off their boots and fall into bed WITH YOU.
More to come. .
