I suppose it was declared international day today,
 we had ...
Argentina, China, a fellow from "Nottingham" England * the guy actually lives in Sherwood Forest  :P
a couple from Finland, a gent from Canada and a pair from Wyoming :-X
The Chinese guy spoke NO English, just 'gobby goop" and pointed, I nodded and smiled....  ???

I can dope my way through Espanol', but forget Portuguese  ???, which is what the Argentinean family was yammering... all 8 of them and with twoHOT Girls in tow .... Sisters I'm betting.

The Brit was very cool, with a deep accent, but I got by  ;)
 
OH! forgot another the two blokes from, The Isle of Jersey who came back again from last Saturday
Seems the Filght's out of where ever were canceled, and never arrived at Orlando, to London or the pilots or some such issue, they spoke in a deep Irish drawl, I'd get a word now and then... ::) they were somewhat stranded perhaps till January :o


But, I'm half deaf, anyway...one guy asked if I ¿Hablas Español?

I replied  "Si un poco " 
 or maybe mispronounced "un poquito which means "This coffee needs a little bit more sugar."  :-\
He began rattling off at 200 MPH, my bet he's Cuban, they talk very fast...
anyway, I understood a word now and then, he wanted to know the admission and how long it took
(To tour)
He chose to return later, but he didn't  ::)

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

'Tis 28 and mostly cloudy. "Cloudy with a chance of rain showers and drizzle. Patchy fog in the morning. Areas of fog in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 40s. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30 percent."

Morning all.

23, headed for 41 today.

Yesterday was a long one, at 10 hours. 8 hours of cleaning “Astro crappers” followed by 2.5 hours working on a Caterpillar engine. Probably not difficult to guess which part of the day was more enjoyable  ::)

Merry Belated Christmas and a Happy nearly a New Year.

Delmonico - I just read that singer songwriter cowboy, cutting horse enthusiast , Ian Tyson, checked out yesterday. Age 89.  His talents are missed.


The cold has moved on from here and rain is a coming.
Hope you all have a safe weekend.

Slim, please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

Somewhat steady gate today, but mostly free gift passes  or Active Duty personal.
I figure it slow as the the day carries on... We are open tomorrow, though I'm not in.

I'm wishing you all a safe an Happy New Year....
