My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "P" — Some places I've be,en starting with "P"
- States: (I've been to all 50)
- Large Cities over 100,000 population I've liked:
United States: (larger to smaller)
|Philadelphia, PA -- went there to find me another assignment while I was working for Philco Tech Rep Field Engineering. Eventually I left New Hampshire to come to NASA Houston.|
Phoenix, AZ -- went there on the way to Las Vegas, we were driving. My cousin and her Hubby spends winters there but we haven't connected.
Portland, OR -- I have an aunt who lives there. We visited her back in the 80's.
Plano, TX -- On the way to Nebraska and Iowa, just north of Dallas. We never stop there but once we did watch a nephew playing college football. He was attending a West Texas college at the time.
Providence, RI -- visited the city for half a day, back in the summer of '81 or '82. We made a month long driving trip from Houston to North Carolina, up through Washington D.C, Philadelphia, New York City, and up to New Hampshire. Then west to Niagara Falls in Canada, down through Detroit, Iowa and Nebraska (visiting relatives), and back to Texas.
Pasadena, TX -- My first place of residence when we moved to Texas from New Hampshire to work at NASA. Later I would teach at the San Jacinto College (22 years) at the Pasadena campus. BTW, I started back to college when I came to Houston and received an Associate of Arts Degree there.
Your trip to Paris sounds like a great adventure you must both be proud of your daughter's achievement there.
When we drove through the Euro tunnel last month there was a 2 hour delay due to an incident in the tunnel. We weren't told what had happened but we believe it had to do with people trying to get to the UK illegally.
Looking forward to reading your Q post next week!
Happy Weekend coming to you,

I have plans to visit Paris & Prague... :)
Prague was a definite favourite that I would do again.
Yes, we are in Mazatlan for another month.
