The rains are here…at last, at least in the afternoons and evenings…too late for the farmers and too late for the rivers: as a precaution, I’m keeping the ice cube trays full. Civil Defense, as we were taught, begins at home..Duck, Cover and pass the rum.

Manana…off to the Pacific Coast with she of the infectious grin(and parents)…hang by the pool, try to read, write and basically screw off(metaphorically speaking)for a couple of days…lets see..here’s some old photos..

‘just in from Hector’s 2nd Anniversary celebration of his restaurant…old and new customers and the delightful Rebecca, fresh from Manhattan…she fits in perfectly. .in a week or two she’ll be slingin’ plates and taking orders.

Old folks in back,used to going along at 40 mph.

One last thing…we(Antigua)will be having another ex-pat from NYC moving here…he’s a perfect DOM(Dirty old man)who paints. I suggested that he take up the slack and become THE painter of nudes here…someone’s gotta do it and its a great gig…I will be the quality control person…hmm
