MARCH 2009: “Hold my calls; I need a nap!”
(NOTE: Newcomers, who'd like to get an idea of what this site is all about, would be well-advised to click on "2005 Pages" and read that introduction. Enjoy!)
(ANOTHER NOTE: Due to an Internet problem this update languished dormant on my hard drive for most of a month. That's why, even though it's April, this update says March... )
Woohoo, I survived!
Our two-month stint with house guests is over. And, same as last time, I was left with a hard-drive full of digital images to wade through, enough to keep me busy for two weeks creating this update's galleries, all six of 'em! So, as much as I'd like to listen to myself write, I think I had better get this party started..."Hey, you don't have to be so damn happy about it, do ya? Sheesh."
As you might remember, Jessica's stay over-lapped Andrea's, but our last update ended before that happened. So, today, I'll begin with the Girl's Beach Trip Gallery, because it spans most of the transitional week. During that time TC, Jessica, Andrea and Connie all took off for a five-day stay at a quaint bed and breakfast, Sereia do Mar, on the tip of the Azuero Peninsula. (Click the names for more info, then close the window to come back here.)
Oh, and just so you'll know, unlike some of our previous updates, this month's galleries all have multiple photographers. There are shots by Jessica, TC, Andrea and her husband, Bob, and a few actually by me, plus one or two from people outside Ingaso's family. I'll give them credit when we get there.
So, as per usual, just click on the pretty beach picture and away you'll go. Then, click on through the gallery and you'll be transported right back here. I try to keep my customers happy; and with that in mind, I've incorporated some horizontal rules to delineate which text goes with which picture/gallery. Enjoy!
Okay, being as you should be back from the Trip gallery by now, I'll set-up the next batch of photos for your viewing pleasure: March's Casa Ingaso Happenings! It, too, has some pictures from the overlapping time, plus some crazy animal shots, and a few from Andrea and Bob's last day in Panama.
All you have to do is move your mouse cursor to the right and click on Bobo's wet, little snout. Enjoy!
When you come back, referring to Tipper's Gozilla Move, I have a very short, 3-second video clip of her doing one. It's not very sharp, and you might have to watch it twice to get it to start from the beginning (don't ask me!). Tipper doesn't hold it like we've seen her do, but it will give you an idea of what I'm talking about. Click HERE , if you'd like to watch it.
While we're talking about the animals, I'd like to present our Beach Day Gallery next because it has a great shot of Bobo and Mama-jama playing on the beach.
The picture is from one of our outside sources, Val, a good friend who appeared on these pages in January's New Year's Eve galleries (click here for a picture, then just close the page that opens to come back). Of course, you'll have to click through a group of gratuitous tropical beach pictures to get to the dog shot, pictures taken during the Northern Hemisphere's frigid, frozen winter. "Eh, eh, eh..."
So, if you think you can handle it, if you think you can sit there freezing while gazing on lucky people frolicking on friendly shores, why then do you-know-what and you'll come back to you-know-where...
Wait! For those of you wondering, yes, I've gone to a couple of beach days, but the lack of surf I seem to cause always thwarts my reason for going in the first place: to slide some tubes! (That's slightly dated surfer jargon for catching waves.)
Okay, okay, I know I don't wield that kind of power (except where gambling is concerned—it's documented!), but as far as I'm concerned, no surf, no go. So, until that time when we can figure out some way to check surf conditions before the drive down the hill, I'll stay home and take my chances in the pool...
All righty then, three down and three to go. Up next is Andrea and Bob's pictures. Together they shot over 300 images, some of which you've already seen, and now here's another twenty-three that made the cut. You know what to do...(okay, in case you're a newbie, click on the picture).
Welcome back, guys and dolls, we are officially over the hump with only two small galleries left...that is, if you're still with me. "Hello, anyone there? Lost you?"
If anyone is listening, this next gallery is kind of a do-it-yourselfer's lesson in making broken-tile mosaics. TC's had lots of people ask how she goes about creating her designs, so I decided to provide a step-by-step, show 'n' tell, idiot's guide on the subject...I wonder if I can get it published?
Anyhoo, the outdoor shower has been patiently waiting for TC to finish its wall mosaics, something she and Jessica started in January 2007, over two-years ago! (Are we on Panama time or what!?!?) And the wait has finally paid-off! So, here it is: a fitting tribute to the perspicacity shown by all to see it through..."Huh?"
Need I explain your mission yet again? Click on the frickin' picture! (Oops, sorry, I guess I'm running out of patience with this update. At least it will be the last big one until visitor-time next year...)
Meantime, please click on the photo...thank you.
Okay, for those of you leading lives so boring that you're actually still reading this, it's time for the last gallery! Hoohah! I'd almost given up hope of finishing this month's update. No amount of caffeine seemed to help, but here we are, folks, almost at the end.
Our last gallery is short, but has some of the most interesting pictures. It's subject is "Critters," two new critters to put in recent appearances here at Casa Ingaso, and very unique and unexpected guests they were. Please, pretty please with sugar on it, click on the image...
And that's it. Congratulations to anyone who made it all the way. Your stick-to-itiveness or stubbornness, whichever it may be, is highly suspect. But, be that as it may, thanks for wading through all this with me, and I promise not to impose upon you again...at least for a couple of months.
“¡Hasta pronto, Amigos!”
