The Day Son Bought A Carabao - Part the Second

Evelyn and Mark became fast friends even though he made it clear to her that he was not interested in marriage as her father was hoping. He was honest with her about his "having a girl in every port"--one in Hong Kong, one in South Korea, one in Thailand... He told her how he had joined the Navy on... Sign in to see full entry.

The Reason I Gave Up Bike Riding

In the years before we were a two-car family, I often would drive my husband to work so that I could have the car for the day.
