    ... a secondary wife. I cook three meals a day, do laundry, do dishes, clean the house, shop for groceries, and watch the kids. There are two of them: Kellan, age three (almost four, he reminds us) and Isabelle (or Izzy,) age six.        60;     The town of Reporoa has about 450 people, which is not a far cry from the town I grew up in of about 400 people.

    ... to represent us. Guess who volunteered? Yup Doug! It turned out to be a pretty good gig as he was rewarded with VIP treatment throughout the evening. At the entrance of the village warriors emerged performing traditional dances involving the bulging of the eyes and the sticking out of the tongue. After our chiefs had accepted the Maori's peace offering we were welcomed into the village where we learned of traditional Maori games, basket weaving, warrior training and ...
