Sarah Palin Explains The Reason For The Season

I doubt there’s anyone in Boquerón who ever heard of Sarah Palin which is probably a good thing. Wish nobody in the Lower 48 had, either.

But here the residents have decorated the town square.

The Pentecostal Church submitted this:

Don’t you love the snowmen in 90 degree weather?

Santa’s guaranteed to lose some weight sweating it out here.

Recycled drink cartons make interesting tree decorations and it’s nice to see them here instead of on the ground.

Have a Merry Christmas. I’m going to be spending it in Potrerillos. The owners of the house are taking a few days vacation to the beach and asked me to stay at the house and take care of the dog.

  1. I rather like the drink cartons. I do hope they don’t try to put candles in them. I wonder if anyone makes candles using milk cartons any more? We used to have great fun. We’d do plain ones, and snowball candles with a frothy something on the outside, and of course the ones where you poured wax over ice and got fantastically beautiful pieces.

    Nice that you’ll have your own little vacation – no travel here. It’s kind of a shame because we’ve got traveling weather – it’s 80 here today, for gosh sakes – and it’s going to be so for the rest of the week.

    The skies were clear for the eclipse last night, too. We had sea fog and low cloud, but it was pure decoration and not a hindrance. It was truly beautiful – I set my alarm for 1:30 and watch the last quarter disappear and the totality. I even got to see some meteors – all in all, a great middle of the night standing around the parking lot!

  2. Hi Richard:

    I’m glad you’re moving to higher grounds. The weather is better and the view of the volcano nearby is a one-of-a-kind scene. I hope you’re able to have some kind of link to the outside world.

    The weather is so crazy in Panama, you could even get a snowfall or two before the year is over. 🙂

    Merry Christmas!
