the ‘move’ accomplished relatively painlessly on Saturday…smaller quarters but the trade-off of an acre or so of manicured grounds? not a question…’need to clear something up: when i’ve been writing of the ‘book’…it’s actually a booklet, which i discovered when i opened up the box of proof copies. Maybe, as time goes by it’ll morph into something larger…there was a last minute snafu earlier this week: one of my ‘mules’ who shall remain unnamed, changed his travel plans…a hectic morning rearranging shipments elsewhere…do you have any idea how hard it is to find good mules?
‘spotted the long missing magician, Mr Dory, this morning..white hat and new set of magic tricks to separate the unwary from their money..was it extra cold today or what that just me? the new location, just over the hill…think they call it Manchen…seems to be a few degrees colder, altho this is January…yes, the doors/windows are open, got the chinese smoking jacket on, but…
hmm..just discovered the good thing about having a half-size refrigerator: whilst sitting at the smaller table, i can open the door without moving and pour a splash of an adult sports beverage without leaving my chair…and the TIGO modem works as well here as the old wi-fi did there..i’ll miss Bangalore Bob’s for many reasons(proximity)but not the noise..’might even regain what we used to call equilibrium, might even start writing again.
and yes, the party scene on saturday night never stops…dos Reilly’s ground zero for barf bombs on the nearby sidewalks, Los Cebollinos improving their decor(and getting more traffic)…got a jones for good barbecue? had a slab of ribs at Epicure last week that was perfect…one day, soon to come, a return to such on my schedule here….gotta keep the three mutts(no, guard dogs)mellowed out…two dobies and a rott…the rott is spoiled, the dobies just slink around in the dark, like barracudas…the guard? who knows? no, he’s not getting any leftovers: maybe a six pack of Gallo for Easter, cuz he did bring me firewood today…what’s that noise? o, the sound of quiet…got nothing in mind for a birthday gift? go buy a copy of the booklet and send it to someone…multiple versions available…google our man in antigua for choices and let your people know that you’re living in paradise..well, it seems that way to me.
