Where Have I Been?

Where have I been? Well, most assuredly, not here at the Gumbo blog.  I haven’t written a scrap on the blog in months, save for a plea for mammon yesterday for needy kids. See yesterday’s post if you care to help.

I have no excuse. Nothing. Nada.

I write. I began a journal as a Lenten exercise.  I didn’t stop at the Resurrection. I have seventy odd pages in a secure place.

I am tutoring:  children and adults. I teach Spanish for gringos; English for others. I have foreign students, such as Japanese, French, and Brazilians.

Bubu, my German Shepherd, died this fall. He was old. No pain.

Rosa, my foster, is unhappy to sit still. She’d prefer to be chasing a tennis ball.

Now, I have a foster who may be adopted tomorrow. Rosa is a mature girl, 6 1/2 years old.  She’s active and happy. If the prospective family fails to take her, consider adopting Rosa.

If you don’t receive a Christmas card from me, consider this picture as your personal card.

I hope to write more about future plans in 2017. I am bored with the RWPs (rich white people) in the US. My self-imposed hermitage must end.

Adventure calls!

  1. It is nice to see you back. I tried keeping a journal for one year in the 1970s. I did not continue the process when I realized I was filtering my life before I put it on paper. Now, that all of my filters are broken, Mexpatriate is my journal.


    1. I am going to try to keep writing on the blog. My journal started as a Lenten challenge to write daily on gratitude. I kept writing. The scope has widened, but the perspective of gratitude frames my writing nicely.


  2. I hope I show my gratitude through my pictures…I’m better with photos than words. Glad you are adopting a new pooch. Merry Christmas to you.. loooking forward to your adventures.
