Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatarended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world,Doha!

Hey blog junkies! I had the pleasure of helping one of my "Doha Ladies" (the name of our Chevron Phillips wives' group) set up a blog. Sherry had seen mine & decided it would be a great way to share with her family & friends back home in Texas. She's one up on me though, she's a real photographer. She had to pack up and sell her studio back in Magnolia, Texas before starting her trek across the world. Anyway, she emailed me and asked if I'd be willing to come over and help her if she fixed me a cappucinno and panini sandwich. Heck, I told her I'd clean her house for that. Especially, being a Patrizi from the famed Patrizi restaurants in Beaumont, Texas, I knew she'd have to deliver. And, yes she did...it was awesome We got Sherry's blog set up, and now she's off and running. I brought my camera with me (yes, it's working again...see comments) and forgot to take pictures. I think I was overwhelmed (intimidated perhaps?) by all the professional photos in her office. (The pic above is of Sherry and her husband Chris that I pirated from her newly christened blog.) They spent time in Geneva and Milan with Chevron Phillips before landing in Doha. Where was David during those opportunities? Switzerland, oh my gosh. I'm thinking it wouldn't have taken too much to convince the kids on that one. Anyway, as I was helping her, I ran across an option to put in email addresses for anyone that wants updated blogs sent to be sent to them automatically. So, if anyone out there doesn't like the element of surprise when they click on our link wondering if it's been updated, you can let me know and I'll add your email address. You'll be bombarded with emails as blogs are posted. Just kidding. I don't think you need to be worried about the bombarded part, as I fret daily wondering when I'll have absolutely nothing to blog about. Hmm...could that have been today? Tootles.
