No, I haven’t died.
No, I haven’t given up on blogging.
Nothing noteworthy has been happening.
I get up in the morning, drink a cup, sometimes two, of locally-grown coffee. A couple of times a week I go into DahVEED and do some grocery shopping. I surf the net. I read. I listen to a book from Audible on my smartphone. I go to bed and then do it all over again the next day.
Next month I’ll have stuff to write about. The owner of the house I rent, his wife and her sister are coming down for a couple of weeks from Texas and I’m going to try and go through the process of changing my “carnet,” which looks sort of like a cheaply-laminated high school I.D. card to an E (extranjero) cedula.

Hey! Thanks for the update. It’s good to see you. In a way, our routines are pretty much the same, except that I brush the cat while I’m drinking my coffee and I do a little more varnishing than you do.
It feels like the tropics here this morning. After a prolonged period of hot and dry, we’ve got wonderful rains: enough that I’ve been able to replenish my plants’ rainwater supply. I keep enough for a month’s worth of watering, since my plants don’t really like the water-treatment chemicals they’re using here now.
I lurk your blog, and enjoy your tales. Keep them coming!
Great writing. Keep it up! Loved the story of the canal crossing. Moved to Boquerón last month with my wife. I won’t say I like it because I don’t want to attract the undesirables. 🙂
