Just thought I'd stop in and say hello

It has been a bit since I posted here. Got kind of nostalgic tonight and thought I'd check in and say "howdy" to you ruffians.

Ola amigo. Hope all is well. Not that many people stopping by here these days, but there's still a bit of a spark.

Cheers

Still trying to save the world one tooth at a time. Recently came full circle. The adventure started in Honduras then shifted to Southeast Asia (where it has been ongoing) then to Micronesia on the island of Yap, then to Iraq and now back to Honduras again. Right now we are focusing on Thailand, at an orphanage on the border, and Honduras.

Dunia is doing very well. 8/27/2016 (a couple of hours from now) marks 10 years since we brought her to KY for surgery. She has a child now and went from a 16 year old that weighed 56 lbs. to a healthy young woman. That was because of everyone that was here back in those days. Almost all of the funding came from BFC sources. Time flies

I see you are still rating a biohazard sticker.
I told you skinny-dippin' in the Pripyat'd make you stupid.
Welcome back, my friend.
The world will never love us. They respect us - they might even grow to fear us.
But they will never love us, for we have too much audacity!

denise, snail mail is just dandy. Thanks :)

Gotta sport the biohazard, I don't remember how to change the avatar!

All's well in the tooth world. There's still sugar out there so I still have work to do.
