Jason’ Quesada’s “Selfie” of Us Eating Here Today 
Our late lunch or early dinner for my two-meal day
Jason is my Spanish language tutor, practicing español at

And my new word of the day is buenísimo, meaning “really, really good” or “the best.”

One of my favorite places to eat now!

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” 


And I just added another sub-gallery to my Christmas in Atenas 2017 photo gallery showing the limited “Decorations at My House” if anyone is interested. Not much since I went away for Christmas Week, but a bit of the spirit still lingers even at home!  🙂  Now it’s a New Year! 

“Doing Good” Video Interview of Me

Before leaving Nashville I was interviewed by a staff person with Fifty Forward Donelson and the “Doing Good” program that encourages retirees to volunteer in activities like the FLIP (Friends Learning in Pairs) reading tutor program of which I was a part. I’m always nervous on camera, but even with nervousness, I think it turned out okay and hope it helps motivate someone to volunteer. It was impromptu, no script, just her asking questions.

Do good! It will make you happy! Volunteering in Costa Rica is on the horizon, but I’m still getting settled now and really need to learn the language to do much good locally. It will happen!  🙂
Me as a reading tutor at Tulip Grove Elementary School last year.
To be doing good deeds is man’s most glorious task.

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
