Hunker and Bunker

So maybe I laughed at the people that dug bunkers, I’m sure that a few of you did as well. Stock-piling cans of Spam and hoarding toilet paper. I chuckled at the absurdity of their actions, who needs to own a dozen can openers?? Well, my province just went into lockdown, code red, stay at […]

More Crazy Days To Come

WOW!!! That was crazy!! I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat for days! It was like watching a train-wreck in slow motion! I couldn’t look away!! Finally, on Saturday the media en-masse declared Joe Biden the President-elect of the United States of America. I feel like I have been sitting in a dentist’s […]

Can I Get Any Luckier???

Well… Aren’t I the lucky one! I get to ply my trade in the 5th most-dangerous center in the country; that’s right I said country! On my countries ‘most likely place to have a crime committed against you’ list, there it sits at number 5. The Big City where I drive to twice a week […]

     There is less than 100 days remaining until the United States goes to the polls to elect or re-elect a President. It’s hard to believe that it has already been four years since the populous, well almost half of the ones that voted, put P.T. Barnum a.k.a. D.J. Trump in the White House. So, […]

Currently Updating... Please Do Not Turn Off Your Life

I realize that every person on this planet has been affected by COVID-19, even the hermits. The disruption it has caused, to routines and life plans, is universal. But I can only tell you about me. What has this pandemic done to me? Time hasn’t stopped, and the calendar on the wall tells me that […]

Domestic Engineering- The 'Man-Sized' Load

Some of you I realize, have been staying home far more than usual in the last few months. This has led to you either doing, or at least attempting, more domestic tasks than usual. Sheer boredom has led you to say things like, “I’ll do the dusting today,” or “I’ll make the bed,” and ask […]

“The people want to go out,” that is what Wendy has told me. This was in response to a comment I made about the amount of bookings I have taken for The Playa for the month of July. The government of the Dominican Republic entered Phase 3 which allowed restaurants and hotels to re-open on […]
