A former high school classmate and cherished old friend when reconnecting with Roger through Facebook quoted the old saying: "When God closes a door, he opens a window." The years have seen a number of life changes for us that make that adage ring true. After being blessed with good fortune, a wonderful son and great experiences, we decided to look out that window and prepare for more of what this wonderful life has to offer. We hope through our blog to share our journey from this point forward with family, with friends and with many others. Hopefully we'll make some new friends along the way. We hope you find our tales of some interest, even amusement and perhaps an inspiration for you to treat each and every day as an opportunity and an adventure to share with those who are an important part of your life.

On The road of life in Thailand with two great ladies!

The umbrella wasn't for rain, the gals needed some shade!
 I spent a month this fall chris-crossing Thailand, seeing great sites, meeting new people and having the time of my life!

We were joined for two weeks of that adventure by Stephen, our son, and various members of Thoom's Thai family either hosted or joined us for part of those travels.   However, throughout the trip,  two very special ladies were a constant integral part of the experience.

  I owe many thanks to Thoom and Suzanne  for making the trip so enjoyable.   I thought it more than appropriate to share with our blog readers a sampling of photographs of the two of them as we traveled from Bangkok to Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai to Sarakham, Koh Samui and back to Bangkok.

On the way to a water taxi, there's a market, of course!

A fan...essential gear!

An overseas call from Steve making sure we are having fun!
One fun one of four monkeys!
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, do no evil!

How fortunate I was to be accompanied by these two ladies!.  I will never forget the journey we shared in Thailand...juntos en el camino de la vida!
