Such sad news

Dani received an e-mail from her agency letting them know that Michael Wei Zixiong - CCAI in-China representative - had died from a cerebral hemorrhage. It was such shocking news that we are all having a hard time with it. He was so young. Michael was the agency guide in Nanning & was so just unbelievable with his care of all the adoptive families & babies. He had a room on the same floor of the hotel & his door was always open in case someone needed him. He did everything from taking all the families to the grocery store to help them pick out baby supplies, arranging laundry service, having water delivered to our rooms, to teaching "soothing" chinese phrases for "Gotcha" day. He even arranged a trip to visit the orphanage even though, it being a relatively new orphanage to open up to adoptions, they did not "allow" visits. We were able to take the trip & see the outside of the orphanage & while in the town Michael found someone to help each family to be able to go to their child's "finding" spot. On our bus trip to the airport when we were leaving Nanning he taught everyone some Chinese lullabies. There was no doubt he just loved what he was doing!

The world lost an "angel" today.


  1. It is very sad news. He was more than a guide to us, he was a friend.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
