Not so very long ago, and not so very far away, there were three penmen issuing their weekly offerings to Live in the Philippines. Each had their own opinions and each had their own individual style of presenting those opinions in a most digestible way. Their backgrounds were just as individual as their weekly pronouncements. Even their choices of residence in these wonderful islands were as “different” as one could find. They shared, however, one…

Vacā na Vacā

It’s that time of year.  Our dear “old timey” readers know what it’s all about. For those of you who have just stumbled across my articles, I’ll explain. VACĀTION FROM MY VACĀTION To many, including Baket ko  (Asawa ko) [my Wife], I am on vacation.  Hey, I’m a foreigner who shows up in the Philippines periodically, stays and enjoys the islands, then returns to the same foreign location from which I came.  Sounds like someone…

This time around, it may be helpful to admit that these observation thingies aren’t being published for reasons much more than their entertainment value.  I don’t want to come off as being “preachy” or exhibiting a “Better Than Thou” glance down my nose.

Observations (Cont.)

So, here the observations continue – my glimpses of Paradise at a moment’s notice.  Like snapshots capturing the essence of the environment around me, they’re a strange mixture of “WYSIWYG” + “WISIWYR.”  (“What You See Is What You Get” + “What I Saw Is What You’re Reading.”)  A batter, if you will, folded and blended, that hopefully will become delightful cookies of reading pleasure.

Observations of the world about me – there should be an exciting collection of short stories entwined in that phrase.  And, like a grizzled, old gold prospector, I’ll be doing my “durn tootin’-est” to pan some out.  Out of fair play, however, I’ll give you, dear readers, the “first go” and start with an observation that all of you are most likely sharing. OBSERVATION #1: “Where’s Paul (or Waldo, or whomever)?”  Perhaps that’s better refined…
