Victoria’s testimony

I want to say thanks to all my readers. My blog has reached far more people around the world than I ever imagined when I started it. I continue to receive wonderful positive comments and they inspire me to write and share more of my life adventures.

There have been a few comments doubting the veracity of some of my posts, like the unusual happenings in Tripoli, Libya back in the 1950s. I want to assure my readers that I don’t make things up, I write what I remember clearly. I’ve always been a writer and have kept a diary for years and years. I was lucky with the Tripoli information because I used it for a required high school term paper the year after I had left Tripoli. My memory was quite clear at that point. I managed to keep that report intact over the years and despite many moves. I still have the original typewritten copy, complete with a couple of pictures I drew of native Libyans. I polished the story and added a few more details to it over the years.

The Internet is a great research tool and if I’m uncertain about certain facts and the changes that have occurred in the ensuring years, I check it out.

I’ll keep writing to the best of my ability and I hope you will all keep reading.


  1. Interesting story! Thanks for sharing.

    That’s a great answer to a challenging question.

  3. It surprises me that anyone would question your memory, but then they don’t know you. Having gone to school with Viki in Libya I vouch for her. As I read her bogs about Tripoli my memory clicks along with the familiar experiences. To someone who never has even visited Libya it must be a stretch of the imagination to go on her verbal adventures. Believe me, Viki has a special talent for observing her environment and then being able to write about it even years later. Attending high school at Wheelus Air Force Base, in Tripoli,Libya was a unique time in my life. Viki is the gifted writer who can retell my memories. Thanks for the fun,Viki!
