Where the Girls Are

We have appreciated your comments about the girls and their situation in Thailand. Many of you offered kind thoughts, and Ginger's comment, based on her experiences, had a calming effect. Thank you.

In our version of It's a Small World After All, our neighbour's son teaches in Taiwan, and he has a good friend who teaches in Thailand. So, this nice teacher from Thailand wrote us a most becalming email assuring us that all was peaceful and orderly and that the girls could certainly contact him. Phew!

But, as the days passed we were quite anxious to hear from them and were greatly relieved when they finally blogged last Thursday, a whole week after their preceeding note. Double phew! Then on Friday night, actually Saturday morning, they actually telephoned to reassure us even more. Yesterday, they blogged again, and all remains well.

Thanks again for you concern. For those who want to read of their latest adventures, their blog is here. Cuppa has mentioned both her angst and relief too.

I love reading their blog - I must say I am actually surprised that they are able to update it that much!! I'm glad though, it's getting me all fired up for my trip out east!

It IS a small world, how nice of the teacher to let you know that things were not so bad. And what a relief it must have been to hear from them!

I'm so glad they are ok, I get worried about my kids in bad weather and such, too.

Good news is in such short supply these days so this is double good news.

I found your comment at MM about Fred the Cat. I doubt your cat and mine are related, if you touch Fred's tummy, you will be bleeding very soon. His head is the only spot on him we are allowed to touch. We feel that he may have been abused some time in his life before he wandered up to our door. Thanks so much for visiting MM and please, don't be a stranger :)
