Who's tending your home heating facility?
I'm back . . . pics to follow at some point.
I didn't take Delta T with me.
Scotty . . . your pic/link is broken.
I had a good time . . . my new favorite island is St. Lucia.
Barely made my second plane . . . United employee ended up banging on the closed door of the jet so they could let my wife and I on board since we were late taking off due to de-icing.
My wife has issues with monkeys. On the last cruise a baby vervet bit her . . . this time around she got too close to a cage with two capuchins and one grabbed ahold of her hair and shirt while the other grabbed her shirt with both hands and started pulling it off her. I have to admit . . . it was both concerning and funny at the same time. My friends really wish they had got pics or videos of her yelling for help while the capuchins attempted to disrobe her (I think they were looking for snacks as she had been feeding them earlier.)
St. Thomas: Met a few fellow Maniacs at the SkyTram.
St. Lucia: If you ever get there definitely do Cosol Tours . . . well worth it . . . beautiful country.
St. Martin: I saw half naked women . . . that's always cool.
St. Kitts: I also love this island . . . did a sugar cane plantation tour. It was OK.
Barbados: Did a taxi tour and I swear the folks in this country are determined to get tourists drunk on rum and rum punch . . . they kept serving it up everywhere I went as part of the ticket to the various places we visited. Also . . . monkeys were here.
Again . . . pics in the next few days. I'm still trying to get adjusted to not having my covers turned down and my wife refuses to make me towel animals or leave chocolates on my pillow . . . and I won't even get started on how white and brown it is here now vs. green and colorful where I was.
Pauly . . . I allowed the oil boiler to take care of things while I was gone . . . I figure my woodstove deserves a short break in the action.
Oh yeah . . . good news . . . the ship didn't catch on fire, I didn't have to poop in a bag and the Captain didn't get so close to any reefs so we didn't capsize.
So you were one of the lucky ones, eh?
Jake your back just in time for the storm....Lol....
Baahaha - monkeys are such funny people.
I'm guessing she wasn't 95 years old.
You would be correct . . .

Very cool Jake ! You must have had a blast.
St. Nicholas Abbey . . . an old Jacobean mansion and location where they crush sugar cane to make sugar/molasses to make rum.

The Pitons on St. Lucia . . . if anyone ever ends up there I highly recommend Cosol Tours. You will not go thirsty . . . this I guarantee.

Thanks for the pics. Glad you are home in one piece. I learned a long time ago to stay away from any monkey. Too unpredictable. In Vietnam, there were monkeys that would throw stones at people. Other moneys would toss their waste. Yuk! The old world scenery was really nice. Reminded me of when I was assigned in Panama.

Nice. Never been to those places (yet) but I have drank with a monkey (no lie).
I'm beginning to think Jake is not gonna pick me up on the way.....I'll wait just a bit longer.....
