clenchin' fabric

Today's an important day for yours truly. At 4am this morning, Inappropriately Hot Foreign Wife and The Boy began their 2nd attempt at returning home to 'Assachusetts. As I write, the first leg of the trip is finished. My wife's cousin drove them 6 hours from Vitoria Da Conquista, a pretty little city on a mountain plateau, to Salvador, the capital of Bahia, Brazil's resort area, and also the closest major city. In this fashion they cut out the first plane ride, which was the proximal cause of their stranding last month. So, last I heard, they were all checked in. Now, it will take two more layovers and 18 hours of flight time for them to arrive in Boston. I am hoping for the best. In the meanwhile, if I had a lump of coal, I could probably clench it between my butt cheeks, and in the time between now and when they land in Boston, I could have a diamond.

Sorry for the imagery.

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.
