Wolfe’s Woofer: Mind Power
“I don’t like those grunt fish,” Linsford said. “They sound like they trying to talk and it gives me the creeps.” “Don’t throw any of them back,” Vernon said. “They good eating.” Linsford said, “I only keep them so they add up and I don’t have to buy the drinks.” The Nosenada Club was having our weekly fishing tournament. The member who catches the fewest fish has to buy the first round when we dock. The only missing member was Juan, which left me, Mario, Vernon and Linsford, whose wife had let him go with us today. “Grunts are interesting fish,” Mario said to Linsford. “They can actually talk.”

Doctor Love: A Concerned Daughter
Dear Doctor Love, My mother died six years ago, and my dad has been dating a woman for the past two years. I support them getting married, but I don’t think my father is thinking straight when he refuses to discuss a prenuptial agreement. My father and mother sold their home and business and bought the house on the beach for their retirement. It is paid for, and he is very comfortable. I don’t mean to sound like a greedy daughter, but she intends to bank the proceeds from the sale of her house “for a rainy day.” She shrugged off my suggestion of writing a pre-nup and hinted that her two grown sons and three grandchildren would be her beneficiaries when she passes.

Birds. You wake up to their screaming (I mean singing. Charming chatter) and notice them staring at you from the trees but what are they really up to? I honestly never gave it a moment’s thought until I moved to Belize. But with age and living in one of the most beautiful natural spots in the world, I’ve not only noticed them…but I bought books…and got binoculars for my 45th birthday and took a 3 day course in birding. Belize is FILLED with amazing gorgeous shocking-they-even-exist birds. Like the harpy eagle… and the toucan – they are everywhere in the Cayo district of Belize.
