Second Monday

Yesterday was a holiday Wednesday for the election. Today seems like the second monday this week. Glad tomorrow is the second Friday this week. I am very tired right now. I closed my eyes and could have fallen asleep while walking the dogs this morning.

Here’s a picture of Ashy, our cat, taken yesterday. She’s resting up for bedtime.

I’ll be perusing the election results today, but at first glance this morning, seems like we did coulda done better.

Election Day (tomorrow)

Tomorrow is election day here in the Cayman Islands. I’m know who I’m voting for.

Last night we went to a rally for one of the candidates. Very lively and interesting.

I stayed up way late last night and got up way early. I am sleepy this morning.

Cloudy skies today, but probably won’t rain.

Ciao!

Not the best holiday

Back to work today after 10 days off, 4 vacation days, 2 holiday days and 4 weekend days. These last few days have been pretty poor.

Flew my first two flights on a Boeing Max 8. Didn’t crash.

Went to my friends funeral Saturday.

I did, after the funeral, have a very nice lunch at a very nice hotel.

.

Not the best of times for me, but you have a good week!

Indecision & Bad News

Not sure if I should go to my friends funeral. It’s on Cayman Brac, about a 80 mile airplane ride.

I guess I’ll probably go. “Always go to your friends’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours”, right? But I’m still not sure.

In other news, today is my last day of four vacation days. It was nice and relaxing but I didn’t get as much done around the house as I wanted. I didn’t dive because of the wind, and now it’s nice again. (another reason not to get on an airplane.)

In other news, Prince Phillip died this morning.

Long live the Queen!

Happy Summer!

Happy first day of summer! The longest day in the north, Shortest day in the south. First day of winter in tge southern hemisphere.
It starts at 5:34 Cayman time today

I like it better the two days the sun passes directly overhead in Cayman. It only happens in the tropics.

I got up this morning, walked to the sea and swam a little, walked home and showered, dressed, etc etc etc. Now I’m ready to go to work. Well, not ready, but I’m still going. My back still hurts when I bend over. Fon’t know what’s up, never hurt for this long before.

Well, have a good day, a good week and a good SUMMER!

Catch Restaurant

Last night The Wife and I went out to a newish restaurant called either ‘The Catch” or simply ‘Catch’. We were both pleased. The food was good, the service was impeccable. And the bill was much lower than I expected it to be.

So when you”re here, check it out!

Sir Turtles boat didn't do too well, apparently!

We went to the awards dinner last night. It was a new record for number of boats signed up. I saw a boat from the Marshall Islands! That’s really far from here. Top prize was $80,000. It was a good night!

On Our Way Home To Cayman

We’re getting ready to leave for the airport. I was sad when we left Cayman to come here, and I’m sad to be leaving Costa Rica now.

But when I get home, I know I’ll be glad!                           bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
