          The Bethel and City Tour company has essentially what I am looking
      for. They will pick you up where you are staying in New York City and
      then do a two day tour of Warwick, Walkill, and Patterson. However the
      round trip is $90.00 for one day. Then $90.00 for both Walkill and Patterson. While I was pleased they will pick you up anywhere in NYC, I was a
      little disappointed in the total cost of $180.00 for two days.
          By contrast the quote I got for a deluxe Greyhound bus from here in
      Cincinnati to New York City round trip is $50.00. I was shocked at how
      low the price was. So this is better than three times the cost of going
      lest than a third of the distance. But if I can't find a better rate This is
      still the beginning of putting together a workable plan for a vacation
      like this.
          As I said on the forum, one I would get to NYC I can buy a Metro Card
      for $30.00. this gives me unlimited travel on wherever the subway goes
      for a week. I have found rooms for $50.00 a night. Perhaps I can do even
      better that that. Where did you say you stayed when you were up there.
      So with the cost of transportation, lodging, all I would have to figure is
      the cost of meals and what ever I would like to see while up there.
          I'm hoping I can bring in the cost of this trip for around $600.00. So we
      will see. At least it is within the realm of possibility. And that is an encouraging thought, to gain back my independence. Thanks again

      I'm still on the mend, but I refuse to go one more Saturday without being in service.  Mom has taken the kids, I still have bronchitis but I DON'T care I am GOING out.  If I get pneumonia and die, it will have been worth it! LOL

      Hola Carlos,
          Thanks for the reply. I will now mine that to see what I can use. Going
      to visit world headquarters  is not the only thing I have been looking at.
      I am also looking at possibly traveling abroad. Of course right now I
      would have to do a lot to get in better shape. But in my search about bus
      fares and finding out how cheap they are. I thought I would look at air
      travel too. Thus I could board a flight  in New York City and fly to Madrid for about $415.00. Also I see Madrid has a Metro and subway system
      allowing me to get around with my disability. So the idea of coming to visit you is now within the realm of possibility. Even other places as well.
      This for me feels like perhaps the light at the end of the tunnel. What has
      been a long and dark chapter of my life.
           Let me know what you think. This is obviously only in the talking stage
      at present. But I didn't even think I could reasonably even talk about.
      Buena Dias Senor,

      This past Wednesday night an elder commended me on a comment made about King Hezekiah, namely that Hezekiah was loyal to Jehovah, seeing he had no reason to doubt Jehovah, so being loyal to Jehovah is top. I mentioned that was out of my experience with that brother, and proceeded to share with him the gist of what happened. OMG! Nooo, prior to past Wednesday, they didn't know, not really. Well! I knew long before that, from speaking to a couple of sfriends, and you guys here that I did the right thing. Yet, somehow hearing that elder commend me on the comment at the meeting, and now his approval of how I dealt with the brother, seemed to seal Jehovah's approval! I mean, I knew he did but, well y'all know what I'm trying to say.  Imagine if I hadn't gone to the meeting Wednesday. ALWAYS attend, unless you just can't. You never know what blessings Jehovah has in store for us when we attend, outside of already know what's on the program.
