Another Beautiful Day

IMG_4192What’s that? Blue skies and sixty five degrees. Paradise will heat up today. My dogs sure like it hear. Always on alert for prowlers in their domain. Bark,Bark and run back to Daddy. Corina and I love our little dogs. I never thought I would be this way. Ticos let their dogs roam . We put up a fence and keep ours in. We wouldn’t want to lose them. Started laundry getting ready to hang them on the clothes line. Ronny is walking down the hill singing and calling out to the dogs: Perros ! ¡Perros! usted no me puede coger! Dogs! Dogs! You can not catch me! He is a mentally challenged young man. Very friendly and kind. Walks around the neighbor hood helping folks or just talking. He likes to get the dogs barking.

Today is laundry day. We do have business in Tilaran. About an half our from Aguacate. Then back home to write and sit out on the porch. Also plan our new property. We bought cyclone fence (513 sg ft) It cost approximately two thousand dollars. The person putting it up wants twenty dollars a meter. I told him too much. That is what it cost in the states.Yet another challenge. We will try to negotiate that price.

No traveling for us for a while. We need to buy some rubber boots to work the property. It helps from being bitten by bugs, especially those little ants. They hurt. My neighbor is in construction and will help us build our home. We will have a contract.

We have a beautiful day today. Time to enjoy it.

The Prowlers

They prowl the yard searching for invaders

Practicing their hunting behavior

Always on alert for Geckos Snakes, frogs, no Hippos

They shy away from larger critters

Large dogs give them the shivers

Bark like they are ten feet tall

Even though they are rather small

They stay out of the Costa Rican rain

Getting wet they disdain

Except when there is no choice

The exception they voice

Lala and Lulu are their names

Always together as they play

Stubborn, wanting their own way

Too bad the Boss has a say
