I'M NOW TEN LEAVES OLD


WOW!!! It seems impossible that we have been in Brasil for four months. Time has rapidly 'flown by'. I have the Elmira, NY weather station on my tool bar and I can see NY has had a very severe winter thus far. In talking with my son, he said it may not thaw out until AUGUST. If this comes true, those of you who suggested a bit of 'envy' at our being here in the warmth consider this: I am now cold at 78 degrees-- think about had difficult it is going to be for us to acclimate to the NY weather. I have finally fully recovered from my over indulgences at past parties. This was the longest I remember being ill with stomach distress. Future plans-- MODERATION MODERATION__ MODERATION. As time gets nearer to return to the USA, I've been thinking about some of the things I have missed while being here. Not hearing my native language is at the top of the list-with the following others close behind:- my hi speed Internet--driving the diesel car-- OUR USA FAMILY--TV-- CELERY-- ICEBERG LETTUCE-- ice cream --maple syrup--good sharp cheese--chili-con carne--haddock fish fry-- whopper Jr. MC D's coffee and until recently peanut butter.. We found it in a store at Christmas time. I will miss the following when I'm back in the USA. The ease of the Brasilian life-style--Our Brasilian Home--Our Brasilian Family--My banana tree-- the Brasilian economy(back to higher prices) Brasilian Bananas (so much better than we get in the USA)the tropical fruit-- the Brasilian BB Ques. LIKE 99% OF THE HOME IN TERESINA, We have an eight to ten foot wall surrounding the property. Someone (probably 80 % of the population) scaled the wall and took three of or new porch chairs. Our neighbor told us it was a frequent occurrence before we moved in. To prevent future theft we had an electric fence installed completely around the and on top of the wall. SCARES ME-- VERY SEVERE SHOCK IF TOUCHED-- Alarm sounds and police called!!! This will, hopefully exclude most future theft!!
