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 Julie Marie* Thank you for the info about my blog not coming thru your dashboard. I love typepad but sometimes it misbehaves. I will tell my handsome husband you sent him a birthday wish. I love this photo of him. And love you too! xoxo Amy

Amy Arnaz

*Thank you Estela* I am so glad you came back and reposted your comment. You are the second person today who told me my blog was misbehaving. Gosh, I wonder if I missed any other messages? We did have a good birthday celebration complete with a Cuban feast that lasted two days. Desi was very happy. All the best to you and thanks again! xoxo Amy

And many more to the guy who beat out President Eisenhower in the TV ratings!!! Who else can make that claim? The answer is no one else.
Coming home from a trip to Hawaii last night, I saw a huge display of your famous TV Guide cover as part of their TV and radio exhibit-- it's pretty cool!!


Dear Amy, I'm sorry that I didn't read this when you posted it. Hope your Beloved had a wonderful Birthday. What a great age to be! 59 and holding.

Amy, it has been a while since I last visited your place. Am catching up.

May your life together be wonderful and may you enjoy life together for years to come,

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.
