Sadly, my dear father-in-law, Jim, passed away today. He was a wonderful man with a fun sense of humor, many talents, and much charm. We miss him terribly.

Luke & Beth

I think this is a funny picture.........Luke was telling us his "scary story" about the health club. Obviously, Beth and I were creeped out by it and Luke just looks sad.

Mandarin Orange Tree Posted by Hello

Mandarin Orange Tree

I'm fairly certain that my orange tree is a Mandarin Orange tree, perhaps the willow variety. I'm not sure. There are several oranges ripening since I took this picture. The lady who sold it to me only spoke Chinese and called them "chilis". My friend, Jing, says they're wonderful cooked with chicken. I'll have to give it a try.

Vesak Day

Monday, the 23rd of May, was Vesak Day. I believe that means Buddha's birthday. Anyway, it was a public holiday in Singapore so we decided to go to Sentosa Island (part of Singapore) south of here. It was a fun, but HOT afternoon. We saved a few attractions for some other time because we were too hot to do anymore. The Government has decided that they will build an integrated resort there with a casino.

I posted those pictures backwards. So, you'll need to scroll down to the lowest picture and then you'll get a better understanding of what our walk to town is like.
