It was great! It was nostalgic. It was wonderful. It was a wrap up of our youth.
And almost half the attendees were people young enough to have no idea what Kodachrome is!!!

A very quick wrap up of our twelve days in New York - we had a great time, and also had a big surprise!!! (Plus I managed to walk four miles on a couple of days - not bad for just barely a year after getting a brand new metal knee!)

Just a quick post - because we've been in this restaurant almost 3 hours, though I had a great salad!
But I took photos of some of the damage at our hotel, as well as photos of the beauty of St Thomas.
Life is coming back. Slowly slow... Read more
We arrived in St Thomas, USVI, to help with the long-term hurricane recovery. Nothing is very organized and things are nowhere near normal.
But people are resilient, and do what needs to be done. Not much else to do, right?
So just a... Read more
We leave Malaysia a week from today (Friday), so I'm making sure I have enough batiks.
And my little shop was featured in the newspaper yesterday!

I've been busily painting batiks in Malaysia. And I decided to do a drawing of the cute Lucky Cat, the one with the waving paws that we see in so many Asian countries.
After a bit of research, I came up with my drawing, and my buddy at the... Read more
We're still enjoying Malaysia, even though we're sort of stuck in Kuala Lumpur while DH goes to physical therapy. Ah well, it gives me a chance to walk or use the stationary bike, so I'm getting in plenty of exercise myself.

We've been enjoying the Lunar New Year celebrations all over Kuala Lumpur, including fireworks most nights of the past week or two.
But last night, we went to the philharmonic orchestra for a wonderful concert. Plus the concert hall is in ... Read more
Last time we were in Malaysia, I helped care for a kitten who somehow showed up inside a pillar in the hotel's dining room. The hostess adopted him, and I gave him breakfast every morning.
He's now all grown up, and the hostess is workin... Read more
We should have been in the Maldives by now. In case you haven't heard, the president there has declared a state of emergency. Politicians arrested, the Supreme Court calling for their release but some judges arrested, people protesting in the ... Read more
We took the train from Kandy back to Colombo, passing through small towns and through tunnels. All very colorful and interesting, especially the random statues and temples.

I know, what a name, right? This city was once the capital of the Kandyan kingdom, from whence it gets the name.
Lovely city with a lake, a forest sanctuary, a temple with Buddha's tooth, and a big festival each August.
We had fun jus... Read more
I visited the Elephant Transit Home, which is a rescue center and sanctuary for orphaned baby elephants. It was wonderful, and emotional, and sort of sad because there was one little guy who was recently orphaned and spent a bit of time all alo... Read more
