  • The End of American in Davao
    on Oct 18, 2012 in Uncategorized
    As my readers know, 2 1/2 years ago I moved back to the US. I was invited to restart my life in a productive way. I moved to Las Vegas and was employed as a Taxi driver. The shifts are 12 hours a day and it is hard to write about my life here working...
  • Elena’s Second Week in Vegas
    on Aug 19, 2011 in Uncategorized
    As of this writing, it is now ten days since Elena arrived in Las Vegas. We have been to Walmart’s a few times buying things she wants for the apartment and herself. Elena enjoys how the store has so many types of items including a food market. I...
  • Elena Finally Arrives
    on Aug 12, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Elena finally arrived here Tuesday August 9th. Her flight arrived at 6:30pm and everything went fast through Immigration and Customs. At 7:15pm Elena walked out of the terminal and into my arms. As we left the airport I drove Elena up Las Vegas Blvd...
  • Almost to the end of the Final Chapter
    on Jul 21, 2011 in Uncategorized
    It has been a long time since I wrote anything here. As I had apologized before many times, one reason is the long hours I work and on my free time catching up on chores and much missed needed sleep. About me, I was working the 5:00am to 4:30pm shift...

  • April Update – and Good News
    on Apr 15, 2011 in Uncategorized
    I again apologize for the long space between updates and posts but not a lot had changed since last post. I work 12-hour days five days a week and if possible work on my days off.  Friday March 18th, the weekend of “March Madness”, Thursday and...
  • Another Monthly Update – February
    on Feb 18, 2011 in Uncategorized
    As you should know from my past apologies, it is difficult to work the 12 hour shifts, talk to Elena and get enough sleep to write often here. Most days off are filled with laundry, house hold chores, banking and other errands. Also when life becomes...
  • At the Next Hurdle
    on Jan 14, 2011 in Uncategorized
    Getting Elena here is now at the next and easier hurdle. Last week I received a package from the NVC (National Visa Center). They asked for payment for the Affidavit of Support processing. They now have an online way of paying. Once that was paid, I...
  • An End of Year UpdateI know many of you have given up on me. I have heard from Elena there are many of the expats from Davao reading my site, even though they never let me know by comments or telling me. In addition, many would like to hear I have failed. Well life is no...
  • Christmas is ApproachingLast Christmas, Elena and I held our first Christmas party for the kids at Agdao Public Market. We are looking to do it again this year but bigger and better. These kids, from 8 to 12 years old, work at the market every weekend trying to earn some mo...
