  16. Dave looks like a very interesting fellow. I would love to have talked to him about this experience. Were you there? Did you trust these Bedouins?

  17. Forgot to say that this is a lovely tribute to a husband that is sorely missed. I love, love, love the song "At Last". I had it played at my wedding reception.

  18. Marsha, was and am blessed.

    Kathy, thanks for visiting.

    Karen, I tried.

    Mildred, it was a hard day but God got me thru.

    Karen, thank you.

    Gail, he was and he did, thank you.

    Lisa, thank you.

    Sparky, I do too...every day!

    LindaSue, bet they're having some good times, really good times.

    Sara, thank you.

    Val, thank you.

    MK, at least 2 -grin-.

    Lea, thank you.

    Vicki, you blessed us with that week in Florida; we had such a sweet time.

    Ginny, would if I could -grin-.

    Charlsey, thank you for visiting and commenting.

    Debbie, thank you and I tried to remember to deep breath all day.

    Charlotte, I took the photo and yes, we did trust the Bedouins. It was a tourism trip and like I told one of the young men, "hurting tourists is bad for business." Braheim's mother was concerned because her son was spending the weekend with Americans. It was so funny! Perhaps I should blog about that, eh?

    That's so cool about At Last at your wedding. Etta James sings it so greatly.
