Thank you Kristin Davis

    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

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.

WHAT a Great get away!!!So happy you are healing up and it won't be long and your Knee will be back to normal. I agree, nothing beats sitting and looking at the beautiful Blue Sea!!!You had a lovely view!!!!
I agree, the wheelchair was a good idea, those terminals can be exhausting for good healthy knees.....
enjoy your self at home with Kremer!!


Hi Ms. Amy,
Oh how wonderful that you got to get away! It is amazing how organized airports are when it comes to accessibility, and it is great you didn't have to walk too much too. Do you know when you should be able to walk normally again? I hope that comes soon, even though getting a ride in a wheelchair every once in a while must be fun!
Being without internet for a while is good, but not for long I think. My family and I just moved last week, and we were without internet for about 10 days. It wasn't fun after a while though, but maybe that is because I was born after the "good old times" haha.
It is great you guys got a little vacation, and I'm glad to see you're going better.

Besos y abrazos para ustedes :)

*Hi Amanda* We talk frequently about YOUR generation and how you were born with internet. To you it has always been part of your life whereas those of us from the good old days grew up without Google at our fingertips. A very different life. I will be able to walk normally by the end of summer. Till then, if I need a wheelchair I will use it. It really was nice to be pushed thru the HUGE Las Vegas and Phoenix airports and not have to wait in any lines. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment. Hope all is well with you and yours. xoxo Amy


I have no internet at home, so I am only occasionally online. I found myself spending WAY too much time at the computer and arguing with total strangers online. It finally dawned on me one day how silly the whole thing was, so I got rid of my computer and now spend more time reading and walking my dogs in the woods (and doing the requisite wood tick check when we are back home!)

I'm glad you had a nice trip, Amy.

And I'm happy Kremer gets to come home!

Amy Arnaz

*Hi Tammy* I admire you for not having internet at home. Funny how we all survived life pre-internet. The arguing with total strangers issue is rampant and walking your dogs in the woods is the SANE thing to do. Looking around at people in the airport before getting on our plane was a little shocking when I saw that very few people were just sitting and waiting while most were either on their laptop or iPhone. Probably 90% were engaged with a device. Thank you for visiting my blog in the short time you spend online. I always appreciate your visits. Oh! And Kremer is so happy to be home and lounging in the sun. Hope you have a grand day! xoxo Amy


Hi Sweet Friend ~

Just popped over to see if
you were back in biz after
your knee surgery. Glad it
all went well and that you
had a lovely place to recuperate
and enjoy all your pets and
being with Desi.

I am envious that you were
able to disconnect. I love
technology, but it can be
a drain on the spirit, as well....

Thank goodness H's Kremer
is doing better. Yikes, how
scary, poor wee soul!

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.
