The Tom Cat and Fearless Frank Frolic in Florida

tom cat

Spoke to The Tom Cat the other day while I still had my magicJack which is due to expire soon. But since I can only renew my subscription with them using credit cards, which I do not have, I won’t be able to continue their service.  Tom had emailed me a few photos, which he has given me permission to publish on Philippines Plus, so I wanted to share them with my readers. I’ve given this post the title of “The Tom Cat and Fearless Frank Frolic in Florida.” Though “frolic” might be inappropriate for a couple of guys approaching their mid-Fifties, I’m feeling in a generous mood today.

An Evening in Guimaras with the Ladyboys

Until my lovely asawa and I moved to the Philippines over four years ago to live in her home province of Guimaras, I did not realize the proliferation of ladyboys in the Philippines until I made my first trip to a SM Mall in the big city of Iloilo.  I never suspected at that time that I would be spending an evening with the ladyboys in Guimaras in the future.Dave and Melinda

I’m an American expat in the Philippines that is adjusting more and more every day to Filipino Time. So if this post regarding 2012 doesn’t get posted until sometime later in this month or even next, I’m really not too concerned. I don’t have to worry about  the commute to work on Interstate 55 between Auburn, Illinois and Springfield, Illinois where I worked at AT&T for almost 30 years. I’m not in a hurry anymore. Here’s a review of some of my favorite photos from our adventures in 2012.
