Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Hi guys
I read some disturbing news about mountaineers in trouble in Zambales. It said one of the missing is a Thadeaus Reandazo. I am hoping it is not our very own Duff Reantaso. At any rate we should pray for his safety!

Nabasa ko ito sa inquirer. Sana nga hindi si Duff natin. Kung siya man ito, sana ligtas naman siya.

This is in Pundaquit, Zambales, Anawangin Cove to be precise. That area can only be reached by hiking or by boat. No roads, so rescue will be tedious.

I was just casually reading the news because it involved a place where I surf, then was shocked to read Duff's name as missing. Lets all pray that he made it to safety

I got a text message today (but not from Judith... it came from a number that wasn't listed in my contacts) asking for prayers for Duff's safety... that "he's been missing since yesterday. Got separated from his mountaineering group in pundaquit, zambales." i'll confirm the news with our other friends...

As of yesterday's news (PDI), Duff is still missing. But the news article was silent as to how he went missing. The two who died in their group were swept away while trying to cross a swollen creek.

Faye,
Maybe you can get in touch with Judith or Duff's family. I don't have their numbers. I may go to TP Fine Atrts and see if they have some info there. Duff was once head of a frat there.

Ricky,

Woke up this morning with a text message from Judith. Sad news. Please pray for Duff's soul as his body was found in an island far away from San Antonio. Interment will follow. Judith's cell number is 0917*******.

Postscript: Duff is the third death in TA (which goes to show you just how young the company is). The first was RJ Leyran several years ago, followed by Jouel Aquino earlier this year.

I also received this SMS from our moderator Ricky Abad just this evening: "At nagparamdam sa akin, Joel. For the past three or so days, the program of Marisol which he designed kept showing up on my desk at home."
