Beauties & the Beasts: The Kano and Papa Duck Hit Manggahan

Beauties & the Beasts: The Kano and Papa Duck Hit Manggahan. OK, maybe that title post isn’t fair to my American expat friend. I hope PD, who along with Asawa Anne, recently paid a visit to “The Farm” in Guimaras, doesn’t mind. To be honest, I drank a LOT more bottles of San Miguel Pale Pilsen when The Tom Cat and I used to hang out at the annual mango mash and I would become even more obnoxious than usual. I doubt that Papa Duck and I ever drank more than two bottles of beer any night we attended the festival.

An Iloilo Christmas in Savannah

Our second Christmas in Iloilo. My fourth one in the Philippines as an American expat.  This year we have seven kids staying with us. Nieces and nephews. I figure we have about 1,000 children flung throughout the Philippines that call us Tita DaDay or Uncle Dave. Seems like it at times.
