Monday March 20, 2017
Intermittent rain has kept us from doing much of anything both Saturday and Sunday so we stuck pretty close to home.  I am getting pretty tired of wiping 12 paws 4 times a day minimum...   The rivers are back down a little so we can breathe easier too.
We got information that there may be another Coopera payout this Wednesday so I put the word out.  Hopefully this is all true.
I also have decided to try another Oldies But Goodies dance on Tuesday April 4.  I am going to work with 2 other guys to control the sound and the music.  I am also toying with the idea to make this free to our supporters this time, just to try and draw a huge crowd.
I am really hoping that this round of physio is helping but I am really not feeling any great breakthroughs anywhere.  My hands and arms still feel like chilblains and I am getting pretty tired of that constant annoying sensation.
Our afternoon got hijacked by our friend Carlos' decision to get married in a civil union to a fellow named Tom from California.  Cristina and another Colombiana named Norma acted as witnesses while I wielded the camera.  Afterwards we went next door to the chinese food place for a very nice supper.
I did a few extra fun versions of the best wedding photo.....
I hope you enjoy the photos. That was the day's excitement. Cheers, Al

Gotta have a signature closer to the one on the Cedula

Add the Venezualan connection

Then they forced me to get in a picture too
