So this is what the Internet looks like...

After a week of  no Internet service, I had forgotten what it was like on here...wow!

Things you missed during our nearly city wide Internet block out...Grand kids end of school year program with Elena as High Wire Walker and Abby the Elephant trainer. Jayde's first piano recital, Clint giving out toys to a local orphanage and medicines to an old folks home. Lexi learning to wave and say 'Chao,Chao'.Several visits with new converts, a trip to Brazil, a tree limb falling on our car windshield while driving through town, two birthday parties and the return of the 'Queen of England' and 'Prince Charming' to our fair city of Ciudad del Este and, the oddest thing is that we had to dig out sweaters and jackets to wear in December!

How good to have you back! Hard to imagine now how we lived without the internet all those previous years!!! Glad you had a nice, yet interesting week! Looking forward to photos of your sweeties! Hope the car is OK! Did you find any "goodies" in Brazil? (I was happy to find Salt & Vinegar chips the other day and although they were starting to go stale, I ate them all!!!) Did you go to BIG?! :) Have a nice weekend!

Do you not mean "Ciao, ciao" instead of "Chao,chao?"

Sweaters in December: that is definitely odd. About as odd as sweaters in TX in June.

I do not envy your coping with the floods. At least your floors appear to be of stone or tile, so they won't warp. Which says nothing about coping with waterlogged electronic equipment.

Tartagal, the town in Salta where I used to live, has had lots of floods in the past couple years. IMHO, they are associated with cutting down the forests, thus leading to water running down the hillsides into streams and rivers,instead of being absorbed.
