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.

Hi Amy!

What a wonderful way to celebrate Lucille Ball's 100th birthday! Thanks for sharing some of the family's moments together.

I enjoyed wathching a few episodes of I Love Lucy this weekend on the Hallmark Channel.

Will try to post this in hopes you have your male filter turned off.
:) :)

What a legacy Lucy left to her family and the entire world! Wonderful photo!

*Allen* Ha! I took the male filter off and your comment was successfully posted. Glad you enjoyed watching the show this weekend. I wish it was on all day, every day. America surely needs a healthy dose of good, clean humor. Thanks for visiting me today. ~ Amy

*Thank you Julie Marie* I remember when you told me how much you loved Morro Bay. It really was quite beautiful. Very cool. Fog. Almost mystical. And the BEST little cafe in the world just across the street that served homemade blueberry and peach scones. Yum. Thanks again for the nice tribute you posted on your blog. I appreciate it... and you! xoxo Amy

Amy Arnaz

*Hi Jamie* I really liked Morro Bay and was SO glad I had a warm sweater with me. Thank you for the birthday wish. I will tell Desi since I cannot tell his mom. While we were traveling I had almost zero internet so after this I will hop over to your blog and see what you have been up to. Always happy to hear from you. Hugs to your little Princess. xoxo Amy

So excited to
see these pics!
My grandpa would
have been 100 on
July 31st....I miss
him and my Mie Mie
so very much. I
thought about you
last week at our
family reunion in
Bend. Amy, it was
absolutely heavenly.
We could throw open
our bedroom windows
at night and hear the
Deschuetes River just
below. The weather
was perfect. Can't
imagine how you could
leave Central Oregon
in the summer! Now
my husband and I are
feeling that we need
to find "a Bend" on a
lake somewhere!!

Hi Amy, on one of Lucie's interviews she said they were having a family reunion at Morro Bay, so I was almost sure you guys would be there and of course you would post some pictures. I really enjoyed looking at them and was very happy to see Aunt Cleo. I know most of the family from the " Lucy -Desi a Home Movie". I'm glad you guys had a great time and Morro Bay is a beautiful place. Nice to see Desi too. Best wishes to you both. Estela :)


So enjoyed the album and YES you should have taken more!! Looked cold there...was it? I see the jackets on. Lovely place for a reunion and very intimate. I wished Lucy a Happy 100th online on Facebook on Aug 6 with an upload video of her and Vivian doing the song Friendship from I Love Lucy!! Big Hugs, Linda

Long skirts

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.
