  1. hi UJ
    well we made it home last night here which was 10 nov. so today we are getting over are jet lag and going out to collect on a free veteran day meal. we had a asome time while we were back in sorsogon city & injoyed time with family and a some time with expats that live there. we all got together a couple times for swimming at the hot springs and a trip to the beach. when we would all get together there was guys from U.S., UK, Australia, new zealand, poland, holland, switzerland,& Germany so it was kind of like a united nations meeting. they all live there full time for the most part some may leave for a month or two. to go visit family back home and renew there BB stamp.
    we had some early morning showers in sorsogon on the 6th and 7th with a little thunder.
    the best thing was for the 30 days we where home this time we had no brown outs. I’m pretty sure that was the first time I’ve had that luck.
    Sorry we didn’t get over to visit. But seems like something was always coming up. maybe we can make it over next time.
    with all the talk about the bullet money scam going on at the airport. from what I will say if people would use some common since & pay attention to there luggage and surroundings they should be fine. after I packed my luggage no one and I mean no one but me and my wife handled it till it was checked in to the airline. yet I seen people leave there luggage setting alone at the casino, hotel lobby, and letting porters and other people handle it at the airport as far as I’m concerned there leaving thereself vulnerable. Sadly We known that there are scammers everywhere that if they see a opertunity they will do it. Without any remorse.

    1. That’s something I miss about the US, those free Veteran’s Day meals. I saw one place giving free, large chicken fried steaks. That’d be the place I’d be heading for. I can’t remember where that was though.
      Well I wish you could have gotten over here too, but your UN get together was probably pretty awesome. There are so many expats living here that I have not even met yet. I should get out more, but I don’t.
      It rains around here about every day, at least for a little while. The brown outs have started happening more often again, but the longest one recently has only been about 1 hour long. Those I can handle okay.
      When at airports my wife and I also always watch our luggage. I just don’t trust people enough on that. I thought the bullets were being planted by the luggage checkers? We use Space A most of the time anyway.
      So when are you planning to be back? Maybe we can get together then. I can relate to the “something always coming up”. It seems like if you try to plan something good for yourself, that happens a lot of times.

        1. Okay. In May we will be celebrating the beginning of our 6th year here. Man the time sure has gone by fast. When you’re young and want to be older, the time drags, but when you’re older and retired and want the time to drag, it goes back fast. That’s messed up.

    1. No you did not. I just posted it. I know it’s very late. I’ll try to get the next ones out a lot sooner. There are probably 2, maybe 3 more posts for that.
