San Geraldo’s Pepper and Tom’s Ukelele

San Geraldo and I were at Ana’s (click here for an introduction) produce store Thursday morning. We got our requisite hugs from Ana. Miguel came out from behind the counter to greet us with hugs, as well. That visit made the entire world seem OK.

Of course, San Geraldo loaded up our reusable shopping bag with delicious fruit and vegetables. But he made Miguel blush just a little when, in the midst of shopping, he proudly displayed his pepper for the world to see.

SAN GERALDO SHOWING OFF HIS PEPPER.

Before Linda and Tom arrived here at the beginning of the month, I was in a card shop and came across an image I thought would be appropriate to welcome them. They had just spent much of a month sailing the South Seas with stops in Tahiti, Mo’orea, and the Pitcairn Islands. In addition to giving them the original card, I also scanned it and emailed an edited version to them.

THE ORIGINAL.

I shared the edited version with Linda and Tom’s kids (in their 30s) back in South Dakota to show them how much their parents had changed after experiencing island life. Their son Ryan is still trying to “recover from the visual.” And Matt wrote, “Dad, I don’t care what anyone says. It’s a good sized ukelele.”

THE REMAKE:
ALTHOUGH, TOM WAS UNEMBARRASSED BY HIS UKELELE,
LINDA WOULDN’T LET ME SHOW YOU HER MARACAS.
