Hi and Shalom
This is Arad, the place we call home. I hope to be able to show some of our home and the natural beauty that surrounds us.
This is our picnic table at home where we enjoy most of the year (yes even in winter we can often sit outside during the day).
VT short story #34190....^O^
Okay, so it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, in the middle of winter, but the sun was out shining and warm...so we decided to clean our second story porch...there I was standing at the edge of the porch and a couple, who I do NOT KNOW, walk by on the sidewalk, look up, see me and smile and wave, I of course smile and wave back...they continued to walk and disappeared behind our garage. About 30 seconds later I see this couple walk backwards from behind our garage, look up at me and ask "HELLO, aren't you that guy from Virtual Tourist??" Turns out that the couple, Joe & Debbie, are new immigrants to Israel who had purchased a home only a few places down OUR BLOCK...they had used Virtual Tourist to research Israel before coming and had come across my pages and while walking in the neighbourhood had looked up and recognized me, although it took them a few moments to realize this ^O^......we invited them in for coffee and cookies and have now set a date for dinner. Again thanks VT. The photo shows Joe & Debbie with me in our kitchen.
