Attending the Paul Simon concert
Tuesday, June 19, 2018      11 comments

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!!! rollingluggagers.blogspo

Twelve Days in New York City
Friday, June 15, 2018      12 comments

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!) ... Read more
More hurricane recovery in the USVI
Tuesday, May 22, 2018      12 comments

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
Long-term hurricane recovery
Wednesday, May 16, 2018      11 comments

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

Wednesday, April 18, 2018      13 comments

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
Lazy Days in Malaysia
Monday, April 09, 2018      12 comments

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. rollin... 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 are NOT going to the Maldives

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

Time in Kandy, Sri Lanka
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      9 comments

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
Baby elephants!!!!!!!
Saturday, January 27, 2018      14 comments

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
