Two Lolas

Born in the late 1800s, she rode horses in her prime and packed a wallop as far as life's problems and challenges were concerned.
Feisty and full of worldly wisdom, Impong Tenteng, as she was fondly called, never completed formal education yet her mental prowess was so keen and analytical...She espoused a mundane philosophy that always went for the jugular, or the crux of any situation. She smoked a lot, hated vegetables, ate a lot of red meat, and lived to a ripe old age of ninety-five. Her sister on the left, Impong Orang, lived to more than a hundred years... © 2007 rauleramos, md

The pond is teeming with freshwater fish. The trees in the background are home to brightly colored avians and occasional migratory birds. Ramos Pond is Eden revisited !
