Have just returned to living in Canada. My spouse will join me once the sale of our Panama house is finalized. It was a great experience in many ways, and I am really glad we were able to do that. Sad to have lost so much dinero though! and losing Bogart was a big blow.

It is 93F on our shady patio this afternoon, and our pool records a balmy 90F. Not as refreshing as one would prefer, but just getting wet seems to help. The wind is much less these days and the last week has been very warm. I'm surprised to note the humidi...

A lively week!
Last Sunday we spent a happy hour in our revised pool. So glad to have it back, and I still know how to swim after all!  It looks really beautiful, and very designer-like as Steve promised. Been in there every day since and started our pool exercises once m...
