Thank you Kristin Davis

  • Orphaned Baby Elephants
    So nice to see that the babies finally have a prominent name attached to their plight. Please click the link (above) to view a page from the orphanage and at the bottom of the page is a link to a wonderful video Kristin made at the orphanage.

From Dame Daphne Sheldrick:

  • “Every person that buys ivory has killed an elephant and its dependent young and has caused immeasurable sorrow and suffering to many others.” Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick MBE, MBS


  • ... from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned baby elephants are rescued.

Watercolors from the Nursery

  • Each month I receive a lovely watercolor depicting a scene from the nursery. We have printed many of them out and placed them in frames to decorate our home.


  • Sammy loved kittens, tutus & ballerinas. But mostly he loved us. He died a peaceful death as an old man and left us with broken hearts.

Our Old Man

  • Baby Bear died a peaceful death just before Christmas 2009. He was almost 17. Bear was a warrior. A brilliant feline. A blessing to our lives.

I heard that it is Sean's birthday today, and thought immediately of Desi. Sean is a great guy, and very gracious to all his fans. Many happy returns of the day to him!

Hi Julie Marie~

Michael Johnson is sending his CDs to us ahead of the show so Ill send one to you when they arrive. I actually addressed an invite to you Jack to come see the show ~ then I didnt send it because I thought it would only be torture for you since youre so far away. I hope youll come to one of our other shows sometimes! As for Sean Astin, hes Desis Godson so he is ultra-special to us. He is one of the sweetest, honest most lovable people we know. A real gem. Ill extend your Happy Birthday wishes to him. Thank you. xoxo Amy

Happy Birthday Sean Astin! I love all the things he has participated in, but especially his Secret Agent Oso (can't get my granddaughter interested in it yet....still too young) and I loved his narration of Meerkat Manor. But I had to quit watching it because I kept crying all during the show. Sean was so great at that and all that he does!

Amy Arnaz

Hi Donna ~

I know, Meerkat Manor (sniff, sniff).  Sean has had remarkable career for

such a young person.  We own a copy of Rudy but still watch it every time

its on TV.  Thats my personal favorite of his movies.  However, he was a

cutie pie in Goonies.  Love that kid!  Thank you.  xoxo Amy

Rudy is my all time favorite movie !!!

Long skirts

  • "I’m very fond of men. I think they are wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don’t want to look like one. When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error…" ~Tasha Tudor

My little mother Libby

  • Hi Mom! I hope you have somehow figured out how to read my blog. I have a new, bionic knee that should last till I'm 80. Wish you were here so we could share everything with you. Miss you lots.... Wish you would have lived longer so you could see your beautiful granddaughters all grown up.
