This week I have been lazing around and reading a few books as well as going to the movies. I saw King Kong, Harry Potter, and Narnia in the last few days, all of which were pretty good. On the way back from the cinema we saw a truck that had fallen into the mother of all pot holes. In the middle of the street one of the truck font wheels had completely fallen into a hole that must have 3 feet deep. The frustrated driver was trying to drive out but there was no way it was coming out with out a crane.
On Sunday I watched the football, San Paulo v Liverpool in the Super Cup, that was pretty fun, when San Paulo won people were dancing in the street and an amazing amount of fireworks were going off around the city. I can’t wait for England to win the World Cup next year.
We had some sever storms that knocked out the electricity for several hours the other day. No TV and no lights, lucky we had just eaten. As the electric had failed I decided that I would rescue the beers from the fridge and save them from getting warm. I manage to rescue 7 beers, my wife wouldn’t let me rescue any more.
I seem to be a tasty snack for all the local insects. My foot itches like crazy from something that bit me in the night, and I have a 6 inch red patch on my arm from something that bit me in the cinema.
Better go, the mother-in-law is cooking me some food while my father-in-law is pouring me something from a suspicious looking bottle.
Make sure you have a great Christmas holiday whatever you do, and if I get the chance I will try to say Hi again before the New Year.
