 Just spent sometime enjoying the snippets of your lives, love it.!!
Busan, second time around [because we could not go to Japan] was good we were able to negotiate our way around to get the few things we needed,venturing into the vast underground shopping areas. It was a Public Holiday, so nice to see all the Families, lovely children, [much more beautiful than the mainly boys we saw in China, who now out number the girls so much so that lots will never marry, such a shortage..] Korean women dress beautifully, and are fine, elegant looking  people, very Family orientated it seems, children are well behaved, it seems...People smile and say hello, even older people,so we left Korea thinking nicely of the place and its people.
Last night after dinner we walked as we do, people watching, and there was a band of African Americans, with hits of the 60's,which made everyone smile, they were so good, lots of dancing, some I was concerned of heart issues ,enjoying it so much...We had a nice chat with Dee, our private tour lady, Mother of Anthony, deaf, and disabled in a wheel chair ,and her 91 yr old Father here too...and Honey the service dog who is very cute...We have large clear badges with  DeeTours, and our name clearly displayed, when out and about, Sam turns his over, and others turn it back...regularly...but she is a good person, and has arranged great places for us to see, at a much less cost than the ships tours.
Today a sea day,we have been out all morning coffee and chocolate, and sewing group,lunch and Sam is walking, its calm, very much so, sunny,and much cooler as we head North,at 17 knts, tomorrow to be 9o in Vladivostok. We have new entertainers tonight, the shows are good we both enjoy them. I am well...dare I say, and sorry to hear lots of you are not or have not been so..
Liz I will enjoy  spending time reading your adventures, hard to believe its almost time for home for you already. Great Mothers Day Jo, and hope you are so much better now. Lorraine its good to hear how carefully Greg is monitored at the Island their standard of care is so personal, and good. Marilyn, good to hear all the news, and how exciting for the Family in the new house. Thelma just met 2 teacher's from Philly, who knew Stacey's school and so interested in how she came to be there etc..  I enjoyed the Royal wedding, it was a big event here ,British everything,decorations and food.. Cate was lovely,and Wills, but we laughed as they interviewed her Hairdressers, said they had spent months practicing...needn't have worried I thought...
Lots of Love, Faye and Sam

Lovely to hear from you today. Busy day at patchwork. Connie's Giraffe day. About 6 made it. Pat did the necessary this morning and Liddle is off to doggie heaven. Feel sad but we know it was best and Pat was so good to wait til I went to patchwork. Committee meeting at Rosalie's on Friday.....any suggestions. Your idea with artifical flowers??????Very happy to hear you are better. Cheers Jennypat

As always very interesting and glad you are much brighter! Miserable day here absolutely pouring, pitch black and it's 5 pm. I just want to go home couch up the my flannels (got a lovely bright pink pair for Mothers Day) and bed socks. Sheba disappeared for two days and I was quite stricken, however she fell in the cat door last night, stilletos in hand, tiara skew whiff and pass out on the mat starving! Bissom - I was so relieved. Anyway enough nonsense from me going home to park up, happy trails. Marilyn xx

Off to Christchurch tomorrow morning and then on to Adelaide leaving in the early hours of Friday 13. It's good I'm not superstitious. Fiona was here for the weekend ahead of a work course in Dunedin and we went for a long drive out to Roads End. A bit of flooding around down the Sutton end and we had to back up and take an alternative route once. Not bad since though, some sun. I am not sure whether I will be able to follow your blog while I am away, but I am sure to catch up sometime. I'm looking forward to sunshine and tennis. I'll see Mum before I go and spend a day or two with her on the way back.
