Anyway, here is what's happening in the story. A female elephant got caught in a poacher's trap. The trap tore through her tough skin leaving her lying flat on her side. A large bull elephant who appeared to be her husband walked around her trying to pull her up not wanting to accept the fate of his companion. Whilst he walked around her he was crying because you could see streams of water running down the sides of his face. He was obviously sad at the sight of his fallen companion. This serves as proof that animals do feel pain just like we humans do. From the current reading, Travels with Gannon and Wyatt.

At this point in the book. Everyone has gone in search of a lioness and her cubs. They are trying to find her before the poachers can get to her. If the poachers find her first, they will kill the lioness and her cubs.
Also, everyone is sleeping in tents out in Okavango Delta, Botswana. At night it is so black that you can not see your own hand in front of you. The animals get really active at this time and walk about even near the tents where they are all sleeping. Before heading off to sleep they write in their journals while all this is going on. They write with dis-ease because they know that at any time they could be killed by any one of these great beasts.

"Everyone sees things differently. That's why if you sent ten people on the same trip, you'd probably hear ten different stories when they got back. Everyone has different interests and different opinions about things." - by Gannon

"TRAVELER'S NOTE: When you arrive in a new place, it's not always a good idea to walk around and talk to people on your own. Some places, to be honest, are downright dangerous, and you could end up in a lot of trouble if you venture into the streets by yourself. It's always smart to research your destination before you travel. If you take the time to educate yourself, you will know which destinations are safe to explore and which ones are not." - by Gannon

The next book I've chosen to read is a book called "Travels with Gannon and Wyatt." It is written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet. It is an adventure book for teens. The setting is in beautiful Africa. It should be exciting. I'll keep you posted.

Wow! A lot has happened in this book. I am almost finished with reading it. As soon as I'm done reading it, I will write my review. I will tell you what the book is about and what I liked and did not like about this book. At this point I can tell you that there are some things about these two characters, Dexter and Emma, that I would not do. I will keep you posted.

Okay, a lot has happened at this point in the story. Emma breaks up with her live-in boyfriend after he proposes marriage to her. This leaves the live-in boyfriend (Ian) totally devastated and he finds it hard to move on. Then she starts up a year long relationship with her boss who is a married man. She breaks off with him because she's not in love with him. Her boss is angry with her because she doesn't want to continue the affair anymore. She winds up quitting her job at the school after failed attempts to get her book published which she realizes is now her true passion.
Let me say this, if I were in Emma's shoes, first, I would not date my boss or a guy I didn't love. These two guys are crazy about her and it is as if she used them to pass the time waiting for Dexter. She's not thinking in terms of the long run. She's thinking in terms of good-for-right-now in her decisions to date a guy. Dexter is the one she secretly loves but he does not feel the same way about her. He is in love with another woman. The whole thing is just a mess. So classic!

Well so far in the story of the book One Day, Dexter's mother has died. He is a popular TV Presenter whose popularity is starting to take a nose dive. He did not go to college and he is a drunk. Emma is an English School Teacher. She is having great success in her school plays. She lives with a guy who loves her but she does not feel the same way about him. Dexter and Emma went out on a dinner date and it was a disaster. They had an argument and Emma broke off the "friendship."

I began attending a church named Wheaton Christian Center in 1992. It is located at:
610 East North Avenue
Carol Stream IL 60188
I left that church. I had been back there on and off periodically. I noticed that after I started attending that church is when all the trouble began. The trouble escalated in 2009. Everywhere I went people were bullying me. I believe that there are lies being spread around about me that are not true. I believe that people are saying and doing things behind my back to make me look bad in the eyes of others.
I'm writing this to set the record straight. I have not said anything bad about anyone. I live my life in such a way as to mind my own business. If I have offended anyone in times past, then I apologize. I mean no harm to anyone. I am a peace loving human being.
I do not want to accuse anyone unjustly. All I'm asking is that you don't believe what others say about me. If you want to know anything about me then come and ask me personally. I will tell you what you want to know.
These two sites and the information on them will have all the places on the Internet where you will find me. I have NO other websites or blogs out there. If you see any others, they are NOT mine.

The book starts out with two characters named Dexter and Emma. Dexter looks like the good looking playboy type whose life is going great at first. Emma seems to be the girl with potential but has not found what she wants to do with her life, so it starts out that way at least. The book is now starting to take a turn of events. It's starting to reach a peak in the relationship. I'll keep reading and keep you posted.
