Five Favorite Things Friday

Happy Friday! Wow, what a week: Syria attacked Turkey, the jobless rate fell, gas prices rose by 20 cents overnight in California, two actors duked it out for the next presidential role -- oh wait, that's not what this blog is for. Sorry guys! Enjoy your weekend and this week's edition of FFTF!

Favorite Travel Picture

Pictures I love aren't always about landscapes and sunsets; sometimes they just tell a story. Like these ashtrays that were made by a St. Lucian resident who worked hard every day, trying to earn enough to feed his family. The ashtrays were made from local bamboo that he hand sanded, shaped, smoothed, and "stamped" using a permanent marker. He gave just as much care to his necklaces, bracelets, and carved art.

He's one of the most genuine and nicest guys you'll meet in St. Lucia. The hubby and I were fortunate enough to have shared a few cocktails and a lot of laughter with him. If you go, look for him!

Favorite Story

This is Tucker. He is a week-old puppy that was found alive thanks to his whimpering. Police who were destroying evidence in a dirt pit heard his cries and saved him just in time. There’s a $2,000 reward being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the jackasses that tried to bury Tucker alive.

    The story about your St. Lucia friend was so sweet. Permament marker? What a heartwarming story.
