I have put new pictures up showing what it is like to live here in Panama. We are located in the mountains .between the Pacific and Atlantic. Elevation is about 1800 feet above sea level. Nearest full shopping centers are a 25 minute drive down to the Pacific beach. Panama City, population of about 900,000 is about 90 minutes away. Our temperatures are about 8 to 10 degree cooler than those along the beach. Average temperature for us is about 78 degrees year around. We have two seasons- the dry windy season and the rainy season.

Being retired my time is spent in the yard and garden. Always lots to do to keep nature from taking over again. We do have a gardener who works two days per week which is a great help.

No trips in 2018. We did spend last summer touring Europe (Denmark, Poland, Germany, France and Italy). Great trip but was cut short after getting a bad case of food poisoning and had to return home early. Watch what you eat in Paris.

In June my daughters and families came for a visit. Eleven people was a hand full. Fortunately a friend lent us their house for the visit. Lots of sightseeing and beach time. Every thing worked out great and all had a good time


Panama continues to be a great place to live. Anyone looking for a place to visit should consider Panama. Our home is always available for company.

If I remember correctly Emery's boat may have never reached the open waters.  My father and Emery were best of friends and most of their free time was spent fishing the Smoky river and  the local lakes.  I have  fond memories over the years at being able to join them.  He was one of those teachers that you can still remember his class room like it was yesterday.  Great teacher.
