Out Of Context???

“Out of context” is a term that you hear as an excuse, given when an individual feels they have been misquoted. I have seen the inside of media and this is a fair explanation actually. It is what the media does to bring brevity to a story. It’s what the viewing public wants, just the […]

The Neighbour

When Donald Trump was running for President of the United States, I wrote about having front row seats to watch the Gong Show that was happening south of my border. The guy was a loose cannon, with little or no ability to do anything more than tell people what he thinks. The gullible in the […]

To start at the beginning go back one post 😉 Part 2- Crossing the Dish Whoever penned the phrase “Misery loves company”, has never sat on an airplane.

Anatomically Corrected

I have had different injuries throughout my life. Knees, shoulders, arms, hands and my back have all had something or other happen to them.

My flight to The Playa is booked for February. Three weeks on the sand, just me and the insects. I can already feel the itch. Even though I am not physically there, my constant communication with Wendy, allows me to stay in the loop with The Playa, at least in a business sense. This is […]

Agent

Currently, on the ‘road of life’, I am on a straightaway. The GPS is telling me, “stay straight for 22 months and 10 days before turning south”. Sounds simple enough. I know that the ‘road of life’ is never simple, but assuming I reach the next turn, what then? What happens to the ‘road’ when […]

Decorum

I act as internet-concierge for a Dominican hotel/restaurant business. Three thatched roofed cabanas on the sand. Each one for rent on any given day. I am the faceless individual that makes contact with strangers from other countries. I do the multiple languages with my trusty laptop and google translate and as much decorum as possible. […]

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party.”   This is a phrase that my mother would use when she practiced her version of 1950’s keyboarding. They called it typing back then, and my mom’s fingers flew over the keys as she repeated this sentence on our […]
