Hi Tams ,
Dad loved your Happy B-day phone call ( one -day late--what no phones on Mountain peaks?!!)
You are obsessing with mountains!! Stop your 'back to Nature', ALONE, me "super woman". ALONE??!! are you crazy?
Behave yourself. I didn't fight with Bell Tel. to reinstate your phone with closest possible number, to waste my time. I expect you home and intact!!
Settle down, Supergirl. Come home now.
I will be home in 18 days! ARGH!! I will try to play safely until then! Hugs T

Hey Tammy,

Sounds like you're having a great time! I am totally envious. Mia is doing well, I will send you pictures to your email shortly. Not quite sleeping through the night BUT every night I tell myself this WILL be the night.

Love Remy & Mia
Hey Remy! Glad you guys are well! Hugs, T

We are still following along avidly with your adventures! We need new pics!
It's Peyton's birthday today,five years old already! We are going to the circus and out for dinner. Family party on Sunday. She passed her latest swimming badge - on to whale next.
The nanny arrives next week so she can get oriented with everything before school starts.
Hurry home - we can't wait to see you!
Love Lisa et al
Hey Lisa! Good to hear from you! I would love to post pics but it is impossible from Leh and I hear the next place isn't much better! So all will have to wait! Nanny, good move! Cheaper than two kids in day care that's for sure!! Can't wait to see everyone. Happy Birthday Peyton! Love, T

OH MY G_D!!! What an amazing experience. You are so graphic in your description I can picture being right there with you. I know exactly what you mean when you say going down is harder then climbing up.

I can't wait to see you and show you the Nepal album I had printed and bound.

As you know I completed my first triathlon last week. It was great! I had no trouble with the swim, but next time I am going to push to the front right away so I don't have to deal with people's feet in my face. The bike ride was great, but the course sucked and many people got flats. Running is my weakest section, and I did an average of a 10min. mile. My next event is Aug. 26.

What else can I say. I am having a great summer in the city. Tonight is Venetian night in Grant Park (lots of boats and fireworks). Last night I went to an amazing show called Shrink. It was 6 one person performances and they were great. Chicago is just so busy in the summer!

Have a great time in India and then in B.C.

Sorry I have been a but caught up with life here in Oz.
What an adventurer you are!!!!amazing all that climbing-I had my heart in my throat reading about it. Thanks for the message at Facebook.
Oh, how are you going to settle down now after such an incredible time??
You really should think about writing a book.
Warm regards,
I have no idea how I am going to settle back into regular life! With my share of tears I am sure! I will miss the instant friendships, and all the amazing, incredible things that bombard my senses all day!! Chat soon, T I am considering a book! Time will tell!

Lazy, sunny days of a Toronto summer. Movies, gym ,golf , pool, Mahj -in varying order. No Mtns. no trekking but that's okay by me.This week, Gerry is off to a Northern B.& B. , Aaron et al. have since changed their B.C. plans to an Ont. resort(Air Fares too high).
Your pics. are great, really cute "monkette"
Chicago Wed. Aug.15th is pencilled into my calendar-you do the same. Darryn wants us (in the teens not the 20s)when he's not back at school. (teaching/taking). On Aug 26th he is doing another triathalon. I saw Lily yesterday -and will confirm with her tomorrow. So is the Hair appt. happening in Vancouver or TO?
The houseboat sounds relaxing.
Enjoy after all your exhilarating exercise.
Love Mom & Dad

No MOM! Not Wed/ THURSDAY! I need two days in Toronto NOT ONE!!! Keep trying mom! Love, T
From Jen - Monday, 30th July 2007, 05:38 (GMT)

Now I will actually fit into your wedding dress now I just need to find a person to marry me! lol!! See you soon! Love, T

Hey Tammy,
I love reading all this travel stuff. It helps me to travel vicariously with you! Are you coming through Vancouver? If I had known, I might have planned on going up there, but summer is packed here in Seattle. I'll email some photos of your little cousin sometime soon! Hugs, Ellesa
p.s. try to avoid big supermarkets etc. in your first days home. The tabloid magazines always freak me out after being in a 3rd world country!
Your funny Ellesa! I would really love to see pics of the baby! I won't have to grocery shop till after my 9 days in Vancouver. I am hoping to go out to Vancouver Island for a few days camping. Nice easy transition home! Boo Hoo! Hugs to all of you! Love, T

Welcome home to Canada!!! I hope you had a great pride weekend and I can't wait to see you next week! Enjoy the west coast. Toronto (and me) awaits your arrival.
Hi Slana! Can't wait to see you too! Chat soon! Love, T

Hi Tammy,


I bet you are suffering from culture shock. Oh well, I'm sure you will recover just fine.

Sorry that I will miss you when you come back to T.O. I will be on my way to Iceland when you arrive. I'm sure we will catch up when I get back on the 21st.

Have fun in Chicago!! See you soon!!

Can't wait to see you and hear about your adventures! Chat soon, T

Thanks Nat!

Hey Tammy!

Sounds like loads of fun. The weather here hasn't been as bad as what you are experiencing but it hasn't been ideal.

Been very busy at work lately, we finally have a new CEO (she used to be a big shot at Bell). Also spending lots of time at the cottage.

Love the pics. Keep them coming.

Surprisingly my weather in Ireland has been good until today! But my fingers are crossed for tomorrow! Hugs, T

Sold the condo last night! And got food poisoning from Celestin so Mike and I (and the others we had dinner with Thursday) spent the weekend praying to the porcelain gods. Mike and I went to my mom's for the weekend as there was open house at the condo Sat/Sun and we didn't want to be far from safety :) OY! What a treat! Anyways, feeling mostly better now, and happy that the condo sold too. Now we can focus on the house and packing! Sounds like you're having fun, and becoming an alcoholic! Do you have to put out for the lads buying you pints and shots? Be careful!!!
Love, Slana
I don't have to put out funny girl! As we know that is unlikely to happen! Congrats on the condo sale! Chat soon. T
From Natalie - Saturday, 19th July 2008, 04:13 (GMT)
Hi Tam, I'm home from California. I had the most amazing time!!!! Loved every minute. Miss u
I miss you too! Ireland is crazy!! So much to tell and I have only been here yjust over 24 hrs..
From Darryn - Monday, 4th August 2008, 01:54 (GMT)
Hey Tams,

Sounds like you are having fun. I went out to the Ren Fair today. It was fun. They had some contraption with trampolines where you were hooked up to a harness and bungee cords and you bounced up about 30 feet into the air. It was great fun.

I went out to a street fair to see a group called Dot Dot Dot. They were very good. I think they could break out onto a more national scene. They were on a reality TV show about the next great band.

Mike Demas and is bride to be are staying over for the weekend while they attend Lollapalooza. They fly out to Hawaii on Wednesday morning to get married.

Keep having fun.

As always summer is packe with fun! I would like that bungee thing. Wheeee! T

yeah - it was not firm. you have a good memory though. It was getting expensive and this conference came up. Danny tried to talk Brano into meeting in Las Vegas, but he wouldn't go for it - i though it was a fair idea. so we'll have to wait an see danny in the winter. TO is cancelled, and danny is hurt - can't please everyone. take care. Y
I remember b/c I knew I wasn't going to be there and thought that sucked! Glad I am not missing your visit!
From Natalie - Monday, 28th July 2008, 02:14 (GMT)
I'm on msn usually every evening in hopes you appear.......... I'll be camping at the Pinery for the long weekend
If you are on the computer at 8pm that's 1am here in Ireland, and I am either sleeping or out drinking! Sorry! Happy Birthday Baby! Big hugs and kisses!
From Elana - Tuesday, 15th July 2008, 03:57 (GMT)
We bought a house!!!! Inspection is Wednesday and if all goes well (fingers crossed!) we will be moving at the end of September! Know anyone needing an awesome 1 bdrm in a cool boutique bldg facing the park at Yonge/Eglinton? It's going on the market next week!
Mazel Tov!! I am super happy for you both!! Hurray!

Neat! Sounds like you're having a great time! Hope your adventures continue!
Thanks! Ireland is great! A little chily but beatiful.
From Gerry - Sunday, 27th July 2008, 23:42 (GMT)
Sounds like you are having a blast party girl. Keep up the good work. My friends leave Tuesday morning. I think I will need a new liver after she leaves.

You probably have been drinking more than me! How's Lisa? Still loving camp? I am certain she is sleep over camp rules! Hugs, T
From Mom - Monday, 28th July 2008, 01:06 (GMT)
Lucky Tammy!
I guess you are not bored--and even if you are you wouldn't notice, in your alcoholic state.
So glad you kissed the Blarney Stone now you can talk your way into/out of anything. (so how is that different than any other time??)
Glad you are meeting fun travellers and having a good Hic! time.
Hugs, Mom
Ireland in the rain is no fun, but so far so good. Lots of great hiking. Not drinking toooooo much. I have only been drunk twice in 10 days in ireland. Hope you are enjoying the summer! Hugs, T

Your photos are amazing...I would have kept that cute puppy. The tree house looked amazing - too bad you couldn't stay there longer. Has it been hard for Alyssa to eat there? Is she living off power bars? miss ya. xoxo.
Alyssa is eating like a pig as always! Now we are in English speaking Belize and getting our point across is much easier! Now she can eat even more! How are the kidlets? Hugs, T & A
From Kissmah - Friday, 30th July 2010, 14:41 (GMT)
