The Flying Foxes of the Seychelle Islands
Monday, November 06, 2017      9 comments

People have been asking for photos of the flying foxes, or giant fruit bats, here in the Seychelles. I tried. I really did. But bats aren't easy to photograph. So I have some of my photos, and some photos from online by people with better ca... Read more

Adventures in Travelling
Wednesday, October 25, 2017      11 comments

Somehow, when travelling, even a simple thing turns into an adventure. And brings new friends into one's life. We went out for lunch. Came back. (On local buses.) And a shopkeeper found us a ride up the very steep hill. It was just a l... Read more

More beaches, some geology, some history - we're making our way around, learning more about this unique set of islands. Plus the impact we travellers make on the environment as we go, and ways we can minimize that. rollingluggagers... Read more

We're on the road again after four months in Washington state. Our medical procedures are all finished - I have a brand-new bionic knee (well, metal anyway), and DH has new and improved vision. Currently in Dallas at the airport, we have... Read more
The rest of the summer
Thursday, September 21, 2017      10 comments

It's been a quiet summer, but I finally wrote the blog. Mostly about my brother's wedding, which of course was the social event of August. We're almost ready to book our trip elsewhere for the year - but here's the catch up blog: ro... Read more
How I Spent My Sunday
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      23 comments

My youngest brother married a woman he met in first grade. Really, they knew each other all through school, but never once dated. Bumped into each other in their 40s, and it blossomed into love. And I got to be the officiant. I don't... Read more

My new knee
Saturday, July 08, 2017      14 comments

Some people know that I spent June getting a new knee. Here's the overview blog - and yes, there are vaguely abstract photos at the end, but nothing gross - just photos of the x-ray of the knee replacement in place. But you can skip them too, ... Read more

My baby chickadee
Tuesday, May 30, 2017      12 comments

DH saw a tiny baby chickadee resting on the edge of a flowerpot outside the back door this evening. It was getting dark, this bird was so little and seemed so alone. We kept an eye on him/her, because there didn't seem to be any parent birds n... Read more
My Debut on Broadway
Thursday, May 18, 2017      16 comments

Okay, off Broadway. But still, just a few blocks over on 42nd street. I was IN an off-Broadway hit last night! Really, I was one of the characters and had to act and everything! Fortunately, I had experience with my role. Really, it w... Read more
