Hi guys !!!
Yes, we are alive and well, thank you very much! Ibanole, John brought your message over this evening, and we would have posted earlier, but we had to stroll out on your dock ... just too nice a night to miss. Charlie (he's our USDA grade A certified pooch) really doesn't like the dock much. Apparently too much water around for his liking. Other than that though, he is adjusting nicely.
We've settled in pretty well --- still missing a few things here and there, but hey, we're in Belize !!! Today was the town board meeting where they decide who gets a golf cart permit ... we are holding our breath. Just a bit too far from town for the bicycles. It' isn't a bad ride, unless it's hot (you can melt by the time you get there) or if it's been raining (need a change of clothes when you get there).
Got through our first immigration ordeal ... we've been here a month now. No real problem at immigration, but the officer had a frown for us when we couldn't produce a return ticket. We just told him that we weren't going back!
Robert and Loie .... when are you coming down here? We've been holding back two ice cold Belikins for you, and I just don't know how much longer we can resist the temptation!!!
Zekester .... no way do we have jobs. We're having way too much fun being totally worthless! So ... Papis' is out ... but the street vendors have some really incredible entrees ... I'll check our email distribution list again --- really thought you had been snubbing us,,, as we have sent (fairly) regular reports. You know how it is though - you get all caught up in the days activities... and -- well -- we've worked with computers for so long that it just doesn't hold the attraction that it once did.
Rick and Cheri --- where are you ??? Bernd told us that you will be down before too long, but we thought you'd be here by now. We'll have to catch up when you get here. Haven't been by the house yet, but Bernd tells us that it really turned out great. We'll save a couple of cold ones for you !!!
We sincerely hope that all of you are jealous as hell, so that we can be assured that you'll look us up when you make your next trip to paradise!
Mark and Mary
