SHAYLA: beautiful name, I just wrote on the other blog and now posting a similar message here!
No doubt you are VERY PROUD to see your Mom as one of the Six Finalists and in Brazil. A few of us have 'travelled' with ROEmancin ROEmeo(Richard), Joe and Posse since Richard first appeared on Oprah in April. Welcome to the blog and enjoy the camraderie which has been amazing throughout these past months and still is!

JOE: as always, a blessing to have your kind and accomodating ways on the blog, keep up the good work ;)
Now I am ready to put m' feet up have a hot cuppa Earl Grey Tea and a coupla Shortbread Cookies ;) chill and enjoy watching David Letterman interviewing OPRAH !!!

Ciao fora now

I'll trade you weather in Rio for the weather in Seattle. I left Anchorage, Alaska Tuesday evening, and the snow followed me. It's snowing in Seattle, so enjoy the hot, humid weather. Looks like everyone is having a good time. I'm sure I can fix Umberto up with a female friend in Chile. I have several single female friends if he wants to meet them. Enjoy the rest of your travels. I enjoy the photos and info.

I'll trade you the hot and humid weather for snow. I left Alaska on Tuesday and flew into Seattle. The snow followed me, it's snowing here. So, enjoy the heat, it could be worse. Tell Umberto I have a couple single female friends in Chile he can meet up with, so he doesn't feel left out!

Hi All,

Hummmm, just wondering...what has happened to Soft Rain? Has anyone heard from her? She seems to have suddenly disappeared since Richard departed on his adventure. Where is her uplifting humor and subtle words of wisdom?

Pam, thank you but I do have an infinity of friends in chile since I lived there and dated a girl for 3 YEARS. In fact it will be a bit strange to go back... thanks for the offer!!!!

Good luck on you brokers test. If you fail now everyone over here on the blog will know! At least now you have a good excuse! Senior bachelor blogging can be addictive!! We'll all go to a treatment center together when it's over! Actually that could be fun....a giant rehab party!!

Don't YOU give me grief about going over the rail. Wasn't that YOU who sent me a picture of you bunging jumping out of a cable car between two mountains in Switzerland??? I think it was something like the highest bunge jump in the world?? And then...... I didn't hear fom you again for like a month?? I think (??) I can take care of myself. Like mother like daughter.....adreneline junkies forever!!!

Hey, where are your brothers and sister. Get them to start blogging me or their grounded!!!!!

I'd give Richard that french kiss, or Latin or Italian, or Brazilian, or whatever kind you choose from any country you choose if I could only CATCH him. It's like trying to catch a fly with chopsticks!!! Maybe that's why I felt compelled to throw myself over the balcony!! I'll try again tomorrow.........

Hi All,
Sorry I didnt get back to you sooner after my last message. Crazy busy with the holidays and work. But I did read all of your comments and wanted to let you know it would be great to have some "bloggin buddies" during my travel experience to Africa with Richard and Umberto. I will definitely keep you up on all the exciting happenings. I want you all to feel a part of it as best you can with us. It will be fun! fun! fun! I am so grateful for this opportunity.
I just got to see the pictures from Rio. The country is beautiful and you all look like you are having a great time. Is great to see. I didnt get the chance to meet you Vicki in person, but I say you are more beautiful than those brazilian babes, and you are very courageous being the travel journey "Pioneer." Enjoy yourself and just have a blast!! Hi to Richard and Umberto. The pictures and smiles are fabulous!!

I wanted to wish you much success with your operation and a speedy recovery.

You know me....don't worry about the bridges, rails, etc.......I'll be safe......well....maybe!

You know as well as anybody how much I love to cook but I'd quit for good if I could just eat this Brazilian food for the rest of my life!! And the fresh fruit......unbelievable!! I have "pigged out" every day...every meal!! I told Umberto that if he needs any bathing suit beach shots he'd better get them in the next five minutes!!! One more second past that and they'll be NO chance! I think Richard feels the same. Umberto, well, now he's another story.....3% body fat....or something like that.....just down right sinful!! He eats everything you put in front of him including your arm if he happens to be hungry and there's no food around. We now carry snacks for him when we are "in route" just in case he starts to get quiet.....that's the sign!!!!! Tuck in your limbs!!!

Having a blast!! My TWO men are the perfect traveling partners!!

Love ya,
