Karen and cousin Kay in summer.

It's August and it's hot. But that won't stop families from vacationing and apparently it won't stop me from destroying my kitchen. Check the blog to find out why I'm putting myself on a forced vacation. Two beers please!

 

Thanks for visiting!

About Tea & Bee's Milk:

If you've ever thought of "escaping" to some remote place, [Tea & Bee's Milk] will certainly give you the courage and perspective to live your dream. As you near the final pages, you'll find yourself wising they'd stay a bit longer, linger just a bit more, head out to the islands just once again. It is a book you'll more than enjoy!      —Charles S

About Camping with the Communists:

An intelligent and enjoyable book filled with history, culture, adventure, and a dash of politics. A great addition to the genre of travel writing, but this book has even more to offer because it was written with honesty, sensitivity, a sense of humor.    —Dave W.
