Who are we, and why do you care? That’s a good Questions! We are Jay and Melba otherwise now known as LoLi & Pop (our four daughters have always called Jay, Pop well when they found out our first Grandbaby was on the way they decided Grandma LoLi and Pop (get it) was too cute three years later it has stuck)! We are here to tell you about each of our stops, that help us remember to love life, each other, and the world around us.

As we enter the next stage of life (called the DARK Ages….oops I mean the middle stage), we find ourselves all of the following in one. We are now; empty nesters, semi-retired, parents, grandparents, best friends, husband and wife, partners in crime, still in love, sometimes tired,  sometimes full of energy, and believe it or not we are having the time of our life!

Some of our favorite things to do are: find new places to (eat, drink, and be merry), travel, and take long jeep rides (sometimes on roads not found on gps), explore new places  around home and far away, travel, cook together, camp, drink coffee, travel, canoe, fish, spend time with family (we have 4 daughters, 2 son-in-law’s, 2 3 grandsons, and 1 more on the way, not to mention I come from a family of 7, thank God the poor Retired Guy (aka. Jay/Pop) was an only child..), hang- out with our friends, play bocce, oh and did we mention travel!

We can’t wait to tell you about all of our zany adventures, and how we make the most out of every situation because when it is all said and done we want to make sure we have a heart full of memories, and not dreams. Still not sure why you should come along with us? Let us tell you why we started our Blog. Once you have read that,  join us for our Next Stop!
