Friday Fiesta

The first time I ever went to Mexico, I was sixteen and had finished first year high school Spanish thinking I knew it well. When spoken to in Mexico by a Hispanic, all I could think to answer was, "No speakie!" Sign in to see full entry.

Thursday Theme

Why couldn't our political scene and our race for a new POTUS be more rousing, more exciting, more happy instead of not only partisan psychological identification but intra-party wrangling. Sign in to see full entry.

Wednesday Waltzing

I'm afraid I led you astray with that subject line. I couldn't begin to waltz to this if my life depended on it. This music is from the Tiki Culture of the 1950's. I had this Les Baxter LP album, Tamboo, when I was a teen. I thought it was so cool. It went right along with Tiki Torches, Tiki Huts,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tuesday Tempo

Time to get back in the swing of things. The rain is over. Partly cloudy is good. Sis and I have plans. That always perks me up. She has a smile that just won't quit. Sign in to see full entry.

The Day Son Bought A Carabao - The End

Laughing seemed to be a big part of this trip of Son's to visit Evelyn's family in the jungle of Luzon Island, The Philippines. She was doing it again, laughing at his bewilderment of what her life had always been. Being a good natured fellow, he did not take offense at her laughter, but instead was...

The Day Son Bought A Carabao - Part The Fifth

The broiling sun was drooping well past the meridian as she led him past the p iña plants and the bamboo garden toward a rocky area in the distance, where water ran and shallow puddles collected. Son could see a water buffalo (a carabao as they called them) standing in the water. He assumed they... Sign in to see full entry.

The Day Son Bought A Carabao - Part The Fourth

When they finally walked out into a large clearing, Son was astounded. He had never seen anything quite like it. For hours he had been bombarded by the chatter of the innumerable monkeys swinging about in the treetops overhead and the screeching and cawing of tropical birds. In comparison, the...
