Ok, enough sappy stuff.. Now about my day! We actually just played on the internet, I talked with my mom and did some small chores around the house. Later in the day we met up with our friends Becca, Arturo and baby Kesha. They took us out to Fruitilados on Remigio Crespo to treat us to Coffee and Dessert.. I was the only one who had both! Its my birthday after all!
After our coffee and dessert we made out way to the Parque Calderon to just relax and people watch. I am not sure who watched who the most. Randy as usual was in his shorts and the local population really gets a kick out of his shorts in "winter" and also his tattoos seem to draw the young peoples interest the most. As we were watching the people I was looking at the beautiful trees and buildings and noticed some repair work being done.
As you can see they are pretty far up and I zoomed in to see if they had any kind of fall protection...
Nope, not unless you count that small railing down below them. We see this every day, but even though they work with no gloves, eye protection, fall protection or standardized scaffolding there does not seem to be the accidents that we would expect in this kind of situation.
Later we met up with some folks who are new to town, and Brenda and Clarke at the California Kitchen for dinner. For some reason I never got any pictures of all of us together. I think they did though so hopefully they will post them on their blog. BUT... I did get a picture of Randys dinner. He ordered the Double Cheeseburger... oh yeah, for those of you who dont know it... Randy USED to be a vegan before we moved here. Those days are past as you can see here..
