- Dear Ones,
I'm just now getting over being stunned by the results of the presidential election in the United States. For the third time in my life, I am ashamed of being an American. (Sorry if that offends some readers, but it truly is a fearful thing to me that this man is going to be the next president.) I will just leave it at that.
On other fronts, I seem to be in a season of making new friends, and that feels very good, indeed. Dave (Not to be confused with my longtime friend "David") is relatively new to the island. He's an American who was here forty years ago when he was in the Peace Corpe. He met and married a Filipino back then and then moved back to the States, where they have lived for the past 38 years. Now that their children are all grown and on their own, and Dave has retired, they decided to spend their retirement years here. Rebecca, Dave's wife, is a wonderful woman, and I have a sense that we are going to be good friends. Now my every-other Wednesday foot massage afternoon includes lunch at the "Shack" with both Puri and Rebecca. What fun to have a ladies afternoon out!
Last month I invited the five expats living on the island who I knew about to my home so that we could get to know one another. This week we had our second meeting, and I think we may just become a rather good group together. Bjorg owns two boats and goes to Bohol Island twice a month so that he can take advantage of the much lower prices at "The Market". One of his boats seats about 20, so he has invited any of us who would like to make this trip to go along as his guest on his boat. He typically leaves at 8:00 in the morning and is back by mid-afternoon. It's a bit over an hour boat ride to Bohol. So, I plan to go in January and am looking forward to it very much. Depending upon what I find at the market, I may just make this a monthly event!
Not much else is going on.....but I thought I might at least check in before the month ends.
