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.

Hello Amy, I LOVE full moons! You captured it beautifully! I took a photo as well, I must compare it to yours, and see the difference in what we both see in our little towns... I visited your friend Marta, how fun! I left her a comment as well... a Cuban restaurant in the Dam City would be great! I do believe a full moon holds mystical powers... only good ones though... xoxo Julie Marie

Hi Julie Marie ~ I told Marta a few of my friends might stop by her blog, so I'm glad you did. Yes, a deli right across the street from our theatre closed leaving us broken-hearted. We loved the people who owned it. We tried to talk Marta into opening a Cuban deli in that spot. Can you imagine how yum that would have been? After I blogged about the full moon I read a news article about why it's SO big this time. So my questions were all answered. xoxo Amy

Amy! I took a picture too! (all in "manual mode" mind you - I'm new to my photography class!) We went camping last weekend and saw the moon. My husband says "Oh it's like a hairy moon or something special."
A hairy moon? It was a Wolf's Moon. The first full moon of the New Year.

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.
