Hello boys and girls - I have been traveling since Christmas, so if you think I've been MIA - you're right.

I'm back and I just updated my avatar. If you like it - thank you! If you don't like it - keep it to yourself! ;)

Cool! Nah, we didn't even know you were away. We pretty much stayed out of mischief without your expert supervision.

Did you use what I told you or something else? Your avatar is fabulously beautiful.

Everyone Bitmoji is a free app, my avatar was made in bitmoji too.

It would be fun if other tuggers would make one too!

And - it's super easy. You just select the parts of your face from a menu of pictures.

Here is a bigger version so you can see the details - you can even select from your choice of wrinkles!

Here is the Reader's Digest Version:

- We were on Kauai for 3 weeks and the first 2 weeks it was rainy and windy all day, every day.
- The first week, I had an allergic reaction to Papaya and broke out with a rash all over my face that lasted about a week.
- We only saw one whale in 3 weeks - apparantly sightings have been low this year. (I was told this by an employee at the lighthouse who said that some whales are staying in Alaska this year.)

But, the worst day in Hawaii is still pretty darn good!

The only new thing we did was a Lydgate Chocolate Farm Tour. Ye$, tho$e Lydgate$.

The tour was interesting, but I thought it was way too pricey for what you get: basically, an interesting tour of a small farm, with fruit and chocolate tasting, at about $100 per person. Get this: their candy bars were $15 - I kid you not!

It must be nice living on the west coast. Where Hawaii is just hop and a skip to Hawaii. Please enjoy your February vacation in Hawaii.

Loved those chocolate trees and those chocolate pods.

Denise M, and Panina's avatars look like sisters.
Are you sure you two are not related?
