Time flies like an arrow - fruit flies like bananas... and papayas too
I'm following news a little on the internet, but mostly out of time. I'm working a little too much, but it lets me stay longer.
I'm reading and have made it to the 5th of my 6 books. I may be wandering the streets looking for a trade soon.
Susan sent me The World Without Us, by Alan Weisman, which I thought might be too much of a bummer to read while enjoying the world with us so much. On the contrary! Thank you Susan for a terrific, well-researched, excellently written book. (Okay the chapters on plastic and rubber and oil did bum me out, but it will be so nice 50,000 years from now....without us.)
I wish you had taken a photograph of the bug (although your sign was interesting and exciting).
Funny, but true that when you don't keep up with the news nothing much out of the ordinary happens unless it's something you just need to deal with (like a giant bug in the bathroom).
Last weekend the weather was so nasty in Portland the pigeons flew south. Glad you liked the book :-)
Susan, sorry to hear the weather is lousy up there. I'm not someone who revels in how crappy it is back home when I'm in a dry tropical paradise (yuk yuk... whoops, sorry!)
A couple of friends and I are flying into Puerto Vallarta next month and were thinking that we might head to la Manzanilla. Any suggestions on places to stay. A quick look on the internet and it seems like most of the guest houses are booked. Are there any small hotels?
Nice photos btw.
There probably are some guest houses not online, but most probably are booked. I'm staying in one with a good sized living area and kitchen, bedroom with king sized bed and nice bathroom. Patio and spiral staircase to the roof too. I think they aren't too booked because they are off the net right now. About 3 blocks from the downtown and the beach - ocean view. I sound like a realtor!
Email me if you want the contact info. Otherwise, Hotel Posada de Tonales is pretty nice - across the street from the beach and central.
"I was trying to take a leak, and this Big Fucking Bug waltzes in, and traps me beneath a cup! We've have to move to a nicer neighborhood."
Fairlane - man! You would take the effing bug's point of view. I should have captured it and mailed it to you.
But I will respond now.
