    I agree with you 100% - DH served in the Royal Air Force for 30 years & I have to say I loved every minute of it.
    I really miss the tours to different places & countries. The hardest part of all was when we finally settled in Nottingham so the boys could concentrate on their schooling & there I was after 5 years wanting (or possibly subconciously wanting to more on again LOL).
    Yes my life has been a real buzz of an experience.

    Anyhow on a slightly different tangent - Terri your island is amazing I wanna come visit (A ploy to get my quilt back HE HE) :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I wouldn't want to leave it looks like paradise. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Tisha :wink:

    Terri, what a beautiful place! The colors in the water were so pretty. I chuckled when you said you were tired of driving in circles - never thought of an island that way. LOL Are there any parrots flying around there?

    I do have to say I like the four seasons, but since I have balance problems, I am afraid of winter in New England, because I usually fall on ice and snow at least once a winter - then I am afraid to go outside again.

    Tisha...no worries, I will do your center and pass it on. I cannot guarantee that Patti won't try to keep it. lol

    No, Beachlady, there are no parrots here. Not alot of birds because of the snakes here. The snakes eat all the eggs. The other day I was watching a chicken (momma) with her 8 babies. Saw her again today and she only had 4. Snake usually gets the babies at night time. :(
    The birds I do see are brown sparrows, pigeons and egrets. That's it...oh yea, and these blackbirds that come out around this time of year and dive bomb you when you are walking.

    I do love the winter...don't like the slippery ice tho. Have had my fair share of spills on them...ouchy!

    Awe, love your photos Terri! The very last photo of the banana trees, looked absolutely like paradise! We had a heat wave last week, and it hit 110F, but we had no paradise to go with the heat, only smog, tons of smog from the heat! lol :)

    Love, Love your pictures. Always do, you take great photos. Thanks for
    sharing.
    Now when people ask about my summer vacation plans, I can tell them I have already taken a tour of Guam and just don't know where I will be going next (have to wait and see where you are off to).

    Thanks....
    Well, tell them you are getting ready to go to Australia. I'm in the middle of planning a trip there at the moment. That is IF I don't kill my family first! :)

    Thanks for the pictures, Terri. I've been wondering for YEARS what your pebble looks like - my DH and FIL were both PanAm pilots and had Guam layovers OFTEN in the '60s. Neither EVER took pictures.

    I understand your missing New England. I miss it too when I'm in AZ for the winter - but I don't miss slipping on the ice or shoveling snow! That's why I'm in Tucson for the winter :lol:

    Tucson! Love Tucson. Was just there in March. Saw the Sonora Desert Museum for the third time. Just can't stay away. Also visited Tombstone for the first time. Had a wonderful visit.

    I have cousins that live somewhere around the Tucson area...dont' know where.

    I know in the airport here, there's some pictures and storys about PanAm and their flights. Something about PanAm being the first on island or something or other.

    Pan Am was the first airline to MANY places, especially across the Pacific in the China Clipper - the beautiful Flying Boat. We're about to celebrate the 75th anniversary of that magnificent airplane. I'll save the details for a time when I'm not hijacking Terri's thread!

    Couldn't resist 1 more hijack :lol: We're members of the Desert Museum so we can take visiting friends with passes. It's one of the WORLD's great museums - a combination of flora and fauna on 200+ acres. Best time is in March/April when the desert flowers and cacti are blooming 8) 8) 8) .

    No, I'm not with the Chamber of Commerce :wink:

    The spider really wasn't that big. We zoomed in for a better view. Was about the size of a quarter, little bigger maybe.

    We are hoping for VA, well, that's what we are penciled in for.
