Thumbs up Ken's Philippines vacation

Well. we now have an idea of some of the food you'll be having when you get back home

and of course the best part is simply getting back home !
I think Ken would of had a entirely diffrent experience if his wife hadn't made the trip all about her and returning to their home there . If Ken had got the chance to get out and explore more the Philippines , may be do some island hopping ,spend some time on tourist beaches with his detector , see more of the historic sites etc. I have made a number of trips over there to the middle of the Philippines mainly Bohol where my wife has a family home ,and Cebu not nearly as many trips as Ken who has his home in the northern part of the islands. I have seen new thing every trip and looking forward to seeing a lot more. Hopefully Ken will have a lot better trip next winter if he goes back this year.

GOOD toilet paper
Hamburger and fries.
Bisquets and gravy..
Just being back home.

After living over here for the past 17 years, You just find out how lucky we are in America...

Here you just can not trust ANYONE. Not a good Idea to go out your front door at night. You could get shot.
You do not have any friends to talk to. Not one..
This big house is like a prison..
Can not wait to get home..

KEN
Looks like Ken was not kidding !!!!!

After being deprived of all of his American comforts and comfort foods I am sure Ken will waste no time ,when he gets back home. Of course he will have to trade his t-shirts and shorts for a heavy coat and snow shovel. At least there won't be any skitters here for awhile , that made him sick as a dog there with dingus fever. After being over there for so long I am sure has a long list of things he misses from home. Just to bad Ken couldn't have found a few old Spanish gold coins or buried Japanese treasure to pay for his trip . There has to be lots of World War II stuff buried all over the islands, that could be sold on E-bay.

Talking Maybe chisel it into smaller pieces ?

Looks like Ken found a "souvenir" to bring home from the Philippines, now to find a suitcase he can fit it in

That should just about cover his wifes spending over there on the house and entertaining. May be enough left over to buy the good grade tolet paper ,and some of the foods he really misses .
