Posts Tagged ‘new years’

I guess that it’s official now that I’ve taken down last year’s calendar…those/these Antigua calendars are water-color works of art, to which I ignored mostly last year…is this my first resolution, to be more aware, stop and smell the horses? I’ll try being more kind/gentle rather that the cynical, crusty  old fart that I sometimes am..no promises, though…

I’m reflecting on the loss of George Morgan this week…we’ve lost some characters over the last few months: Joe Collins, of ‘Houses to Homes’, Re-peat,, also of Rio Dulce, and even ‘GQ’ as he was dubbed for his lack of sartorial splendor. I didn’t know ‘Oaxaca Bob’ but from what I’ve heard, if even half of it was true, etc.

I’m ‘porked out’…the pig on the spit at La Taverna last night, Christmas dinner and now, if you’re still in need of more, the American Legion is having as belated Christmas dinner at the Jardin Bavaria on Sunday….see the Comandante in  the park for tickets….150q..oink…no mas por me..

Wiser heads or maybe just sober decided not to start early at Jacksons yesterday but to postpone for another day..Friday has been mentioned and if you see the ‘Perfesser’ around, ask him about the ‘trip up north…he wishes that he’d taken a camera and I wish that he’d write about it..

James Mullen left quickly but Tanya Hughes is a much better replacement..I’d been hoping to run into her last night but my mood went sideways on me…the ever-marvelous Marbel was on duty at Reilly’s La Esquina (site of another pig roast this Sunday) and yes, the fireworks…is gunpowder and makin’ bacon two of Guatemala’s primary industries?

alright, shut up and stop whining….throw the calendar in the fireplace for later. I need to count my blessings but for that I need to find my thinking cap…here’s to the good, bad and indifferent women I met last year, here’s to some great friends who moved last year and may HBT’s wrists continue to heal, find some parts for the booger Cougar and more unmarked roads….once more, R.I.P,  Captain Morgan and if you know of any ‘bad women’ I’m still looking.
