December 6 -Number 18 'Bountiful Harvest'

I had promised to tell you another Ghost Story today. That post is written but for a multitude of reasons I have to wait a week. I promise it will be posted on Tuesday December 13th. One of the bonuses to that is, hopefully I'll have pictures to go along with it by then.  I'm sorry, Please be patient with me.

I hope the replacement post won't be lame. I always hope I'm not lame. 

Tonight Rick was particularly late getting home from work. I was down at the pool and when I came home and the place was dark I was worried. In a few minutes he came in with this:

And this:

On his way home he ran into a buddy,Rasta Michael, hitchhiking. Rick picked him up and took him home. Michael and his wife live back in the 'bush'. He has 3.5 acres and quite a garden.We are the recipients of it's bounty today. There is eggplant, papaya, sweet red peppers, okra, sweet green peppers a few little tomatoes, Chinese squash and all kinds of greens for salad and bush tea. We had fresh salad and the squash tonight. Tomorrow it's Eggplant Parmesan.

Life is good and so is the produce, especially if you live in the tropics in December. I might not know where the commas go,but we'll be eating good.

This song has nothing to do with this post, except I like it.


  1. I can't wait till I celebrate my first Christmas in the tropics. I arrive back in Akumal, Mexico on the 27th. And is that basil on the table? I could bury myself in basil....it's one of my favorite scents. Can't wait for your ghost story. Did you happen to see mine on yesterday's post?

  2. Yum Yum! And I love Linda Ronstadt!! :)
