Hillary does not have to agree .
There is every US President from JFK onward sitting on the toilet, right up to Trump.


Including Bill Gates, Elvis, John Wayne etc.

Plus almost every famous person they could think of.picture .

This is at the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv and it is meant for fun.

Wish some of our Prime Ministers were there.

I saw no one from Canada.

I’m glad you’re home, Percy. It’s just not the same without you.

Thanks for thinking of us and lighting a candle, such a thoughtful thing to do. xo

Keep the pictures and comments coming!

dcd:

I thought you would like the picture of yourself doing somersaults.

Thank You for the good advice on Petra.

I went into about 20 caves including all of the Royal Tombs
I think I stepped in some of your foot prints.

The fellow who wanted to give me a free ride on your behalf said to say "Hi".

1. View from my Hotel in Tel Aviv, right along the Promenade and the Sea.

2. Memorial to Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995. President Clinton was at the massive funeral.

3. The US Embassy in Jerusalem, the one that Trump moved from Tel Aviv.
It is a huge building and the main part is around the corner with the US flag waving.
Added renovations are goi9ng on still

4. Look at the smile on the Whale that swallowed Jonah, that is what you get for refusing to be a Prophet when God asked you too !!!!

O h yes , look at the pictures above ( Carmel Market)

I gave the camera to this young fellow to take a picture and he said tat he would do one in panoramic !!

He then switched the camera over to "Fish -Eye" and before I realized that he did so, I took about 10 pictures .

Welcome home dear Percy!

we mostly behaved while you were away - travelgourmet appears to have upset the Mods 😢 Perhaps you could get him invited back?

thank you for the candle. I knew you’d remember.

1. My first view of the Sea of Galilee. It was a heartfelt moment.
2. View from my Hotel ( Dan Panorama) in Haifa, down to the cist below and the Port.

3. Inside the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem. ( Birth of Jesus)
I mass was going to begin soon and they has the main section in front of the Altar cordoned off.

I asked if I could come to touch the Altar and take some pictures and to might surprise he said "yes" and unhooked the rope.

Lucky Me.

Welcome home, Percy! I'm glad you had a great trip. You were in an amazing part of the world: Petra, there is nothing like anywhere else! And Jerash are the best preserved Roman ruins I've seen - and I've see a lot of them!

It is good to have you back in the Lounge.

1. A Model of how Jerusalem was at the time of Christ, at the Israel Museum,

2. Direction signs at the Mount of Olives.

3. Church of All Nations on the Mount of Olives.

4. My first view of the Western Wall ( Wailing Wall) from the Jerusalem rooftops.
Construction going on.

That is all for now , a few more later , and pictures of Jordan, which was an amazing surprise.

Going to pick up Alexis after school.

You know what happiness is!

At noon time when Alexis came out of her room and walked down the hallway and then saw me ,

she came running saying " Percy, Percy " !!!

Thank You Kathie and schmerl. I know you have both been good BUT I still lit a candle for you.

Kathie I agree with you about Jerash........amazing. ...and Jordan is soooo friendly.

My private tour guide in Jordan was terrific and cool !!! We were like bothers.

schmerl: You are right Israel and Jordan are super great.

I will post more pictures later , it is a bit difficult what to pick and choose to give a balanced view.,

Yes gruezi, like the song says " You were always on my Mind " !

Welcome home Percy. You've been missed.

I am so glad to hear the memos to be nice to you while on your trip were received and followed. I appreciate that you lit a candle for us. The power of fodorites is strong and it shows.

Welcome back Percy and thank you so much for the pictures and lighting the candle for us, especially Sweet NoNo!!! He did not have the Hirschsprung's when they tested in early April. His intestinal surgery is scheduled for August 1st, and there is still no resolution on his nurse situation Monday - Friday. We go before a judge on June 11th.

I am enjoying your pictures and glad you had a good time. We missed you around here.

Percy, that candle for Bankbabe and Baby NoNo made me tear up, how very sweet of you! I am in Italy right now and have lit a couple candles for friends and family going through hard times. I know Bankbabe will be touched when she sees this. Bless you!

Of course we are happy you are back Percy. Of course you were missed.

Looks like you made quite the mark on the world, your pictures are great. Those strawberries are so beautiful. It seems strange to see ancient places I've always heard of, like the Garden of Gethsemane, on a directional sign.

How's sleeping in your own bed feel?? For me, that's the best part when I get home.

Hi barbrn:
Happy belated Nurse's Week to you

I walked through the Garden of Gethsemane ( Get-sam-man-ee)

Yep I like to be home in my own bed for sure.
