Just Jot January – 2022

The word for the day in #JusJoJan thanks to Dan is gobbledygook. It made me think of all the medical transcription that I do. A lot of the terminology is gobbledygook to many and the handwriting of the doctors could be considered chicken scratch. Fortunately I can usually understand it all, though if the doctor who is dictating has an accent, it sounds pretty gobbley (is that a word?) to me too.

In the #Bloganuary Challenge, the question is about a road trip we’d like to do. When we were younger, the hubby and I had a retirement vision to get a motor home and see a baseball game in every major league stadium. He’d play a round of golf in all those areas too. However, he had a back injury at work and although he is okay now, it is very difficult for him to sit for long periods of time in confined spaces so we’ve had to put that dream away, at least in that form. Now we’re thinking about doing a train trip across the country. We figure there would be more leg room on a train and he could get up and stretch if he needed to. I did see this map though:

And here are the places you’d see:

Here is the list of the landmarks you’d stop at in each state on this road trip:

  1. I think train trips are great but you’d have to miss so many wonderful places that weren’t on the route. There are so many amazing sights to see… I hope you and your husband are able to explore many of them. Happy 2022!

    That would be a wonderful trip. On the other hand, I’d like the rail trip, too.
