I love to write about anything and everything. I enjoy travel, and do so frequently, so sometimes I may be blogging from South Africa, sometimes from West Palm Beach in Florida. the possibilities are endless. I have close family and friends on three continents, I play the piano, go to gym, love to read and sometimes even find the time to watch TV. I have a son, a daughter and five gorgeous grandchildren, and I have been happily married to the same wonderful man for umpteen years.

  14. Oh, Good Grief! I’m dizzy from the scroll down here! πŸ™‚ I clicked on your Gravatar from my blog. It is linked to the Blog 24 site. There, I got interested in the artist from Africa. Then … I got all interested in the kitchen renovation and a bunch of other stuff here. I don’t know how I’ve missed all of these fascinating posts. I’ll be back to discover more soon! I love this blog. Thanks for jogging my old memory.

    • Wow, there’s an awful lot of reading, if you go so far back, George. I don’t post on the Blog 24 site any more because of all the spam. Love WordPress proper though. πŸ˜€ Have a great day my friend. *hugs*

  15. I’ve seen your name and presence on my blog numerous times. I appreciate the courtesy and look forward to your visits & comments. In retirement my traveling is limited to local locations but considering I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest I have no regrets. I chose this beautiful area more than two years ago. I look forward to visiting your site, viewing your travel photos & reading your perspective on life. Be well! – Bob

If you choose not to accept the award I will not be offended, I just wanted to show how much I enjoy reading your blog and also to say thank you for your support and encouragement!

  23. It does sound like you have a paradise life. I, too am blessed. I’m not sure I’ve been so many places, and my family is limited to one continent, but three states from Delaware to California. I do enjoy your blog, and appreciate you stopping by mine as well. πŸ™‚

  24. Guess that’s one of the positives of reaching the grandchildren age, the time to travel, enjoy doing all the things you never had time for previously and blog so that others can share the wonderful places you’ve been to and enjoy having contact with others around the world. Greetings from a Scotland that sliding from wet summer towards autumn.
