Thanks for the never know how your actions will be taken on your "adopted island." Some suggested that I should have spanked the children, but I realize that the children must have learned these actions from their parents or other adults.

And, I would never physically discipline some other's child. Although, I'm not against being verbal - as today a young bicycler hit an older woman pretty good, but just kept on going. We were in a cart and caught up to him and I gave him a good verbal lashing.

Anyway, quite a few rough days, but my spirits are still high. If this is your home, then you have to be pro-active in your community.


FYI: I've been visiting for 18 years, but am a permanent resident as of several months ago. Just so that you didn't think I'm a hit-and-run "do-gooder".
