Congratulations!!! Sam. Wow, I'm so glad for you both. I hope things are looking up for you all. I can't imagine life there from all we hear about Zimbabwe these days but I hope you've found a safe place there to raise Lucy. Good luck and keep checking in once in a while just to say hi and doing fine.
DJ

Congrats Sam. How are things up there. The news from Zim has been rather sparse down here.

(Hey DJ, long time no hear!)

Thanks, everyone! I must say, little Lucy is just delightful and I am a very lucky Mum!

Things in Zim have not improved at all, but we hang in there and hope for the best ... perhaps we all have our heads in the sand, who knows?

Sam

Hi Sam!

Sorry I wasn't able to pop in here sooner. I haven't been around much for the past few months, so just read your wonderful news! CONGRATULATIONS!

Jeanie

I've been wondering how Sam's been doing for a while now, and thought I'd share this with you in the hope that she might still receive email notifications and pop-in to say Hi.

Mugabe has been voted the third greatest African of all time. Now who did the voting is a mystery.

Great minds think alike. I've been thinking about her too!

Hi Guys,

Still here!!! Not doing much in the restoration department, it must be said, but busy with children (Lucy 6 months old already - time flies), helping Peter with his safari operation and doing a spot of painting when I get the chance!!

Wish you wouldn't post stuff like that, Al - it makes me so depressed. The (deaf, dumb & blind?) people who voted for Mugs ought to try living in Zim for a few weeks - they might change their views!

Quite a few people on that list not noted for their promotion of humanitarian ideals. Not to say genocidal maniacs ...

Sam

Hi Sam!

Glad to see you're still doing OK. It's been a while since we've heard from you. Be sure to stop by to say hello more often. 6 months old? That's hard to believe! They grow up quick.

6 mos. old?

Criminy! Time sure is flying. Good to hear from you. I saw something on the news the other day about Zim and thought of you and your family immediately.
Having not seen anything posted here I was curious but just figured no news is good news!

Take care and just maybe check in a bit more often????
