as usual….HBT and his ‘krewe’…’N’ah Leens spellin”….did Divas 2 last night, in search of feathers and flesh….feathers? not there,friends..

music tonight! Wayne and Nelson at Kafka’s…3rd calle, 8pm….Bobby and Grace, Ocelot at 9pm…you know, if they’d tell me a day or so in advance….good luck, Lori Shea on her proposed Antigua music page…and a giant tip of my best panama to Lori for arranging the house-sitting gig in Rio Dulce next month! gets me outa here at the heighth of the madness…4-9-4/19 height: heighth? well, the top of craziness, ok?

the ‘cornhole story’?…tis written, let it be done…probably up/out tomorrow, after I re-read it once or twice…I liked the Earth Lodge…very very  time-warping for me…memories of communes in the 60’s but without the view and the Jack Daniels in the bar…

and I was off (so to speak)about Hogan’s departure…tis tomorrow, Thursday and not soon enough for a few folks….just kidding, Van Daniken..your presence will be duly missed, especially at a few ‘happy hours.’

and I s’pose that the ‘Perfesser’ and that crew will return intact soon…no maps, no guide books, no reservations…not sure about guns, unless Jim O was packing..

and a face from the past, in the Park this morning..she of the ‘infectious laugh’….we spoke for a  while, even though her yappy little dog (on a good chain, thank you)went for my cojones…it’s been a while and maybe the memories have faded…if you knew me four year ago, you’d know..yeah, she looked good but not THAT good, y’ know?

dont forget…www.amazon.com/author/michaelsherer   christmas is coming!

yeah, the 5th  Annual Corn Hole Tourney’  not the 9th as I’d read it…either I need new glasses or a larger monitor…probably ‘C’…anyway, it was good to finally go up(and I mean up) to the Earth Lodge on Sunday…not well marked and a decidedly steep dirt path down (and back)….lotta locals…Billy Burns of Mono Loco, Matt of Old Town, Ron Fortin….probably all  amazed that I made it up the path, without stroking out….it was a time warp, taking me back to my commune days of the late 60’s/early 70’s…very quiet, rustic and backpacker heaven…

so…the ‘Perfesser’, Duane, Jim O and Enrique left this morning, for parts semi-unknown…the NW part of Guate, upper Quiche…no maps, no reservations and so on…I sort of admire their perspicacity but on the other hand(five fingers)I never travel without a map, a guide book and my trusty Beretta…speaking of those, a huge tip of the panama to Lori Shea for finding me a gig (house sitting) in Rio Dulce for Semana Santa…I’m not telling where it is, per the possibility of..well, you know..but the photos/descriptions are way cool…ten days of bliss, I suspect.

speaking of bliss, there’s a move underway to take Epa, the Rubenesque waitress at La Taverna, to Divas soon…Hogan’s in on this, HBT might be involved…Hogan? leaves us late Wednesday, for a return to the States…so if you owe him money or vice verse, probably ought to  catch him at La Taverna Tuesday night..’happy/slappy hour, and all that.

As Green as it Gets, their raffle this weekend at La Esquina? netted over 3500q!…yeah, I bought tickets but gave ’em to Franklin, head honcho….turns out that I won something…and the surprise of the week? a John Wilbur sighting Sunday, on my way t o Earth Lodge! coming out of Tre Fratellis, outer 6th calle…looked the same…pirate gleam…’miss him, I do..
