Well, Merry Christmas to y’all. I wish health, peace and happiness to all.
It’s been a busy coupla weeks, it’s Thursday after x-mas and I woke up this morning with this on my balcony.
Yup! It’s the old deflatable! But let me back up a bit.
I’m missin’ Zoot Allures. My weekends got flooded. Saturday the 15th worked (12hr eyeball docs yapping). Sunday the 16th. The annual cousin gathering at G.S. and the first season all-day party! Always a good time. A few missing persons (my sis’s kid Luis) but one cuz, Tony came whom I hadn’t seen in years. He’s got some bigass motor-yacht and his water-maker is giving him problems. He’s probably getting a new one and ditching the old to me. Zoot Allures with a water maker would be outrageous!! Anyway, at some point we decided to take some pics. I posed with the hairy ones whist posing to a theme. Far left and right- nephew, niece. Center left right- Vicky and Sis. Baldy in the middle.
Then G.S. had a seat.
All last week, work. work, work till we got served our salary cuts on Friday (33%… we’ll talk about that the end of Jan.). But I did blast out to ol’Zoot to see how she weathered some storms and to haul home the deflatable to fix.
Saturday with five days off work, I drove to our Nafplio farm with Mom, Sis and Ioanna (see diopter) and 2 dogs. We had a fine time, G.S. + came for a day visit Sunday, I played alot with the fireplace and did some chores. Monday and X-mas day where beautiful, warm and sunny. We had x-mas stuffed chicken lunch outside. It was like this!
Guess what? SANTA CAME!
Ioanna’s dad used to have a Grand Banks and she has stuff in her cellar. The diopter, lots of old maps and the Optimus Princess 22 pressure alcohol stove. It’s in mint condition in it’s original box and barely used. All I can say is I’m really exited and cant wait to try her out and install in Zoot Allures using the old Primus gimbals and pot holders. WooHoooo!
I guess that wraps up X-mas. Nice to have 5 days off. Got another 5 coming up. Saturday I’ll go to ol’ Zoot and see what’s going on. I’ll probably get hijacked by Kostas and Paula. Fine with me. Also got a couple of parties lined up… 2012 going down. Quite a year, but I wont get into that quite yet.
Stay tuned and have a Happy New Year
ps … listened to Jon Hassell alot the past weeks. Good after long work hours
