Me and Manny Down by the Schoolyard – Weekly Photo Challenge – Room

Dear Friends, Manny and I went back to school this week. The old classroom looked just the same and the teacher was still there. (I often wonder – do teachers ever go home, or do they live in their classrooms?) Even though our visit brought back happy memories, I was glad I’m not at school any …

Dressed For Success

Dear Friends, There’s no doubt about it – Hawaiians are snappy dressers. Some Hawaiians don’t even need to be dressed to impress, while others accessorize to perfection. Even my best buddy Manny got into the spirit with his beautiful shell lei. I was filled with admiration for the relaxed Hawaiian style and I really wanted …

Watching and Waiting

Dear Friends,  I’ve been whale watching with my old buddy Manny. We sailed on the Ocean Spirit, a sleek catamaran, out into the Auau Channel off the island of Maui. Manny and I were given the job of Official Whale Spotters. We watched and watched and watched until far away in the distance we spotted …

 Dear Friends, You know how much I enjoy doing work experience. It’s great fun to spend a day in someone else’s shoes. But sometimes it’s good to sit back and let that person just get on with it. That’s what Manny and I thought when we sailed from Bruges to Damme on the paddle boat Lamme …

Ain’t That Peculiar?

Dear Friends, Manny and I should have known something was up the day we went to the Natural History Museum in London. All the signs were there but we weren’t very observant.

Yvonne, Elaine, Janet and Leanne also expressed some concerns that I will soon have to …

All My Own Stunts!

Dear Friends, There’s nothing more fun than revealing your inner child in a playground. When Manny and I came across this wonderful park in Frankfurt we revisited our childhoods and our imaginations ran riot. This park was a dream come true with swings, slides and even a Viking ship and we decided to try them …

Be Our Guest – Weekly Photo Challenge – Extra, Extra!

Dear Friends, This week Manny and I were out in the bush enjoying some well-earned rest and relaxation after our stint at the World Cup . It was really nice, until an extra guest joined in. We weren’t sure if he was friendly or not, but given that his name was Bearded Dragon, we decided not …

Great Balls of Fire

In honour of this spectacle of fabulous footwork and amazing ball skills we decided to get in the groove by going to a warm-up game. The roar …

Morningtown Ride

Dear Friends, I’ve had lots of work experience in the past. I’ve been a tour guide in Brussels, a park ranger at Fox Glacier and a member of the Bavarian Mountain Rescue Service. This week I learned how to drive a train! Call me old fashioned but one of my favourite songs is that old …
