Change of Plans

We were going to Volcan today with our friends and neighbors but when a guy has to work, he’s got to work. Our neighbor is a welder and makes the metal door and window security covers that are common here. Someone wanted window covers and wanted them now, so he’s been banging around over there (he assembles and welds them in his driveway) and today he went off to install them.

But, not wanting to waste a free day, his wife said she’d go to the supermarket with me. Oh, and if we’re out, can we go to Conway? And, we could also visit my friend who isn’t that far, and if we’re out there we should drive a bit since it’s really pretty there. And, if you like that, you would like to go down this other road too where it’s also very pretty….

By the time we were done we’d spent over an hour driving down back roads through beautiful  green hills and lush scenery, through small towns, laughing and talking all the way and having a great time. Most of the photos were taken through the windshield so they aren’t great, but hopefully you can get an idea of what things look like around here right now.

We also made it to the supermarket and Conway on the way home. The Volcan trip has been rescheduled for Sunday. Our friend has had free time until we planned this trip, so maybe if he ever gets low on work all we need to do is plan an outing, Murphy’s Law will surface, and he’ll be good and busy!

PS There seems to be a new auto detect feature for your location. Apparently I am currently south of Nigeria and west of the Congo. I guess I’ll go fix that.

    Ha! I haven’t been clicking that “autodetect” button, wonder where I would be? Funny, funny…

    And also funny how you start out to do one thing and end up doing 20 other things, none of them what you planned. ¡Oye! ¡Es Panamá!

      Yes, it’s true. LOL She kept asking me, está occupada? Podemos ir? It’s such a different life when you’re retired. Nope, not busy, never busy, always up for a road trip with a friend 😀
