Happy New Year!

LOCATION : Housesitting in Panama City, Panama

WEATHER: Hot, humid and raining

So much for the dry season! It absolutely poured all day today. We stayed inside most of the day, other than to walk Mac in between downpours. Mac sleeps a lot, but gets excited when I start preparing his meals. He dashes around with his stuffed animals….

We sent New Year’s wishes to friends and family. In Spanish, there are 2 “n’s in the alphabet. One is the regular n and one is with a squiggly mark above the n, called a tilde. They have different meanings and pronunciations. I have been wishing people “Feliz Ano Nuevo”. I should have been writing….

Feliz Año Nuevo – with the tilde

Our daughter Alexis, whose Spanish is better than mine, pointed out that without the tilde, I’ve been wishing people “Happy New Anus” !!!!!!!

It was a quiet day, We listened to a podcast on Minnesota Public Radio — my favorite cooking show host did a farewell program….

We grilled hamburgers and shared a bottle of champagne. George got a bit crazy…

We didn’t make it until midnight. Must be 12:00 in some time zone!
