I could hang out here a bit longer if absolutely necessary. ;)

Yesterday, my niece-in-law had to work, so Craig and I did the grocery shopping, had lunch at a funky little sandwich shop where the ladies of the evening fuel up before starting their rounds, then stopped by the beach to dip my foot in the Atlantic.

The handsome young man in the pic with me is Diego, my nephew's horse, er . . . dog. Diego gets a LOT of looks wherever we go - I guess there aren't many American Bulldogs around here and the locals all point and stare but keep a very respectful distance. They obviously think he'll eat them, but he's the most mellow dude on the beach. He's papered/purebred; my nephew and his wife have bred him a few times (to their female AB, who died a few months ago - poisoned - just after she had her latest litter :( ). Diego does dad duty, along with my nephew.

Not sure what's on the schedule is for this evening, but this afternoon we're going to wash all these stinky dogs. That should be pretty entertaining. :D

Griff 01-26-2019 07:59 AM

Great looking doggos!

xoxoxoBruce 01-26-2019 09:42 AM

You and Diego belong with the beautiful people. :thumb:

Yah doggos and humans, looking good!

good to have a face to go with your name, Glinda. Now you're real. Welcome to my reality!

xoxoxoBruce 01-26-2019 10:12 AM

And she's keeping much better company these days.

glatt 01-26-2019 05:43 PM

Hi Glinda!

Glinda 01-26-2019 08:59 PM

Hi glatt! Hey lumberjim!

Weekend – island time. Slept in, lounged, smoked, washed dogs, did errands and were followed home by a Hungarian gypsy family that wanted to know more about Diego (weird, right?). They want a puppy for their son. Napped. Friends stopped by with some bud (also potential puppy parents). Went to town for some street food (enh – I think I ate dog.). Caught up on the Trump fuckaree (Roger Stone. HAH!)

Oh, yes. It follows me wherever I go. I work hard to turn it off when out in the world, but I find it nearly impossible to ignore "professional" advertising. People are easily forgiven; corporations aren't. ;)

Thank you! I added the purple a few Halloweens ago and got so many compliments, I decided it would be my new normal.

My cell phone finally processed a pic of Catherine, my niece-in-law. She's not only beautiful, she's a lovely, sweet, positive, kind, generous human (just don't piss her off; she will cut you). :D

xoxoxoBruce 01-26-2019 10:49 PM

She looks and radiates happy. :thumb:
It also looks like you may gain a pound or two while you're there.

Griff 01-27-2019 08:20 AM

Lovely! What's cooking?

Glinda 01-27-2019 08:58 AM

You mean the pic above? Catherine whipped up a cheese, onion, salami, and homemade aioli sammie (toasted under the broiler) for snacks yesterday afternoon. Yumm.

RFN? We just fired up the bong. :bong: :D

Griff 01-27-2019 11:56 AM

Nice and nice!

Well . . . not exactly. :rolleyes: It's a lot more expensive than I would have thought, though - $20/gram for the good stuff, if you can get it.

Fortunately, my nephew has quite a wide collection of friends. Hell, everywhere we go - LITERALLY everywhere we go, people stop him and want to chat or drink a beer together.

We walked down Sosua beach looking for a place to eat dinner at sunset this evening and along the way we met five or six people who wanted to say hello. A store owner/friend of his gave me a deal on some tourist t-shirts. On the drive home through town, two different people stopped us in the road to chat a bit. It's like old home week around here, every day. :cool:

A summer cold is a different animal,
He wants to share your summer fun but you don't want him to.


So, yeah. Some cootified fuck on flight one or flight two shared his/her germs with me, and a few days later I'm one sick puppy. Never fails. Why me, Jebus!??

Bad, scratchy throat yesterday; lung funk today. After wandering around Cabarete beach this afternoon, and enjoying lunch by the ocean, we came home and I slept for four fucking hours with the fan on "hurricane." Wheee.

Bought some expectorant and Nyquill. I shall sleep the sleep of the dead tonight and hopefully will rise a bit less wiped out in the morning. :greenface

By the way, during our travels this afternoon, we ran across another three or four people my nephew knows. Literally . . . driving past a construction site, two guys came out to the road to visit. Someone having lunch at the restaurant was one of Catherine's good friends. What the hell!? Who is this guy? James Bond?

I'm certain it's possible, but my understanding is that the basic cold cooties take roughly 36 - 48 hours to start fucking you up, and the bud didn't show up until day two. Either way, I'm indulging in OTC cures, lots of fresh tropical fruits and juices, and engaging in some moderate self-medication. :rolleyes: :joint:

fargon 01-28-2019 07:49 PM

Sorry to hear that you are sick. Summer colds suck.

I meant your nephew ;) Maybe that's why everyone knows him and goes out of their way to keep on good terms. Maybe the person you are buying from id lower down the chain/s decoy.... :p sorry about your cold though. Air travel sucks that way. My MIL is always sick a couple of days after arrival

Oh, gotcha. I doubt he's "the man." He and his wife barely scrape by, and they typically smoke junk weed. I'm the one that asked for and paid for the good stuff, and my nephew had to go through some hoops to get it. Plus, there are no phone calls or random visits at the house, day or night.

I think it's more likely that Craig and Catherine are just lovely, genuine people. It doesn't hurt that they've got a massive, gorgeous dog and are in the process of trying to sell the puppies. Word gets around, you know? ;)

xoxoxoBruce 01-29-2019 10:32 AM

Plus they've been accompanied by this hot babe lately.:yesnod:

Aw, shucks. :blush:

Lazy day today. I helped Craig clean the kitchen and living room, did laundry, napped, smoked. Still feeling crappy, but better than yesterday.

The Hungarian family came by this afternoon to take Pepe home with them. The wife is going to completely spoil that puppy!

Here's a snap of Craig's bastard rooster, Constantine. He used to have two girlfriends, but apparently he killed them in a fit of roosterish assholery. Now he wanders the yard with no one to keep him company. The other day that SOB came after me. Fuckin' roosters. :mad:

Yep. Scooters and motos. Everywhere. And they're all traveling in every direction at once. Driving a vehicle here is like being a great white cruising a narrow, twisted river, surrounded by thousands of swarming pilot fish. :eek: It definitely takes some getting used to.

That is correct, sir. Great deal, eh? :rolleyes:

I confess, the awesome change in meaning didn't occur to me until I'd had plenty of time to mentally correct the broken mechanics of spelling and hyphenage ( <-- that is now a word, sez me). The upside-down discount offer was just the icing on the cake.









And now, once again, especially for those in the back:

People: Words (and punctuation) mean things! Mind yer shit!!

Indeed. :D





Unfortunately, the transcription doesn't clarify things at all:

"Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us."

Landed in Portland late last night. Luggage did not. Yay.

Airline told me it would be delivered to my house "tomorrow." Given that they didn't know where on the planet it was at 1:30 a.m., I find it hard to believe they're gonna get it to my front door this afternoon.

BTW, the nice people at JetBlue tell me that I may have my luggage back on Friday.

Yes it is, even with the sub-freezing weather and no clean undies.

The good news is, I've got plenty of food, cigs, weed, and booze, so I don't have to leave the house for at least two days (snow should be gone by then).

Iíve got too much to do before final departure on Saturday but have been felled by an asthma attack but have been given the good drugs that, when they kick in, make you feel superhuman by the kind doc.
Will they kick in in time :unsure:

After reading it eleventy-nine times I think it says give us your email so we can spam the hell out of you.
