Well 4" blocks are definitely better than bamboo. Glad you have a good solid foundation.

Now Ken is stranded on the island with them. I am sure he will get a kick out of it.

Thanks for the kind words Ken, very glad you enjoyed it !

(it's really not too hard once you get used to using the software)

Some people enjoy relaxing and doing crossword puzzles, I enjoy creatively editing pictures (and sometimes doing crossword puzzles too )

Often families will have some one working out side the Philippines sending money with each check or a relative living over here that helps out . With each amount they get they will buy some supplies and work on the project till the money runs out. Some projects can take a long time to complete a little at a time. Doing it that way it keeps the goal of a better life in site. If they had to accumulate all the money up front they would spend it on some thing else and it would never get built.

Over there it probably pays to keep a eye on your neighbors , and a tree inside a house is not something you see over here every day. Gary has been adding some very funny additions to the pictures. May be that is why Ken built the big wall in his back yard last year. Big walls and fences make good neighbors over there, and help make sure your stuff doesn't walk off.

May be Ken can show them the picture , the tree branches upstairs could hold the hammocks for the upstairs bedroom. They should get a nice breeze there.

I bet Ken is ready for some Jollibee's about now ,after several weeks of native foods a good hamburger , fries and fried chicken can really hit the spot. Jollibee is a copy of our McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken combined for those who have never heard of it. Jollibee has become the go to place for families wanting to celebrate a event. Lots of birthdays , graduations ,family functions are now celebrated there, or with bags of their goodies brought home. I know after about 1 week over there, i will walk by one when we go into the big city in the mall and have to make a stop for some American food. When we make a shopping run into the city for supplies, all the relatives want to go along so they can get a meal there since we are paying. Ken enjoy those burgers , fries , & fried chicken now that you are thinking about them .
