  • Hair! 1 day ago         “It’s time to do your roots!” I screeched to Kathy, my eyes riveted to the stripe of gray along the part of her jet-black hair. “I’m letting it grow out. Gonna go natural,” she purred. “NOOOOOO!!! Don’t do it! You’re gonna look like an old lady.” She smiled, “I am...
  • People are Funny! 1 week ago         “What do you write about?”  That’s the most common question I get when I tell people I write a blog. So, the other day while visiting with Lynn at her Green Valley Lake cabin and her next-door neighbor, Katie, the question was asked. “Nothing. I mean everything. I dunno, I’m...
  • Cheap Ticket! 3 weeks ago       I didn’t read the fine print. I mean, really, who does? After my latest flight purchased through Cheap Tickets, I do from now on.  I was excited to be visiting Lynn and Lucas at their home in Puerto Rico, a trip we had been planning for months. I didn’t care that it … Continue...
  • Fifty States Before I Die 3 weeks ago       How many states have you visited? And by visited, I mean more than just touching soil. You have to have lived there, vacationed there, or at least passed through long enough to have stayed at Motel 6 and dined on prairie oysters in, say, Amarillo, Texas.

Love Carole Jeans CR Capers Blog, she is so candid and entertaining with the life in Atenas. (We are planning to go to Atenas in 2016 for a one month stay to see if we like it. If that works out then we would consider moving there permanently!) Carole Jean seems to be a really neat and fun lady and her escapades in CR make me want to move sooner!

I am loving Carole Jean's blogs whether they are about her colorful past in San Francisco or her current experiences in Costa Rica. Carole is so generous to share the small moments of her interesting life with us gringos in the States. I feel inspired every time I finish one of her stories.
