Where does the time go?
When we first decided to come here to live I really thought that the time would slow down for us. I was promised!!
But alas, it still continues to proceed at warped speed but we are here in one of the most beautiful places in the world and we have not looked back once!
Ok, maybe once when Don ran out of beer when it was one of the holidays here and you couldn't buy alcohol, ( I believe there are only two and Don knows them now like the back of his hand), but that was the only time.
We sit outside here at nights and we still feel like we are on holidays and that we will soon have to pack up and go home.
It's just so awesome that we managed to fulfill our dream. Please do this if you are thinking about it. Remember that life is so short and we are here for such a short time that we have to make the most of each and every single day. Sorry for the sermon:)
Ok, now I need to speak about some things that are not quite so awesome :) Still good, but a little out of the ordinary for you folks living in North America.
Invasion of the unknown
The other night when we were sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather that this dry season brings, and after having our daily cocktail. Ok, ok, you dragged it out of me. It was our second!
Boy you try and slip one little white lie in here and you get attacked from all angles :)
Anyway I digress.
Out of my peripheral I see something run past the side of our home and right by the open door of our living room.
I ran to close the door so it wouldn't get it but he outwitted me.
It was big and furry and had a huge long tail and probably weighed about five pounds.
I was freaking out!!!!
Anyway Don grabs the pool cleaner and runs behind him into our office where 'it' hides under our desk.
Obviously I closed the door to the office and I stood outside while Don was trapped in there with this 'beast' while I was outside yelling at him to catch it.
Well it wasn't coming out from behind the desk. No way!
Then Don has the presence of mind to go and get our Panamanian security guard to try and fetch him out of our home.
I guess that the Panamanians are used to doing this kind of thing as he came, brought some rope, made a lasso and the creature who has now grown to be over five hundred pounds if he was an ounce, was captured and taken outside (unscathed) and was set off to scare the hell out of some other 'loco gringo'.
