#2 The Journey
What is retirement without a retirement gift to myself? Well to that end I decided that a vacation rental somewhere warmer than home is just what I needed. I had been looking on VRBO casually starting in October once I decided that late December is when I w...

#13 The Sandstorm
A short blog for you – a little out of my ordinary in that I
have only one thing to discuss, versus my disjointed thoughts anywhere and
everywhere. I will attempt to stay on one subject only, that being sand, sand
storms, and the corollary: dust. In a word:...

Blog #12 The End is Near
The countdown is on for my departure and the end of my
three-month adventure in Riyahd, Saudi Arabia. Endings of whatever type, good
or bad, always bring with it some reflection of the immediate past. For me it

#9 Saudi Life
It’s April suddenly and realize that
time really does fly – more so when you having fun, but this is a work

#8 Where am I and Why?
As noted in the last blog I am pretty much half way
through my assignment here in Riyahd, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I signed
up for 3 months starting mid-February culminating with my departure back to

#7 Edge of the World
Snap quiz – what is the difference between a
bactrian and dromedary camel? Answer: the number of humps (bactrian has two).
More about camels later. As for the countdown of my experience in the Kingdom
I have been here for 38 days and have 50 remaining – not...
