Corner Crab


Sunday, June 29, 2014



The sandpaper is from the worksite next door. I got it when I liberated their stepladder to help in dispatchching the rafter-crab. With a Treasury of Canadian Humour from 1967.

Hey, guys? I did a cruddy seascape!

That's genuine palapa-leaf collaged onto the painting there, folks.

June 27

Coffee at Local. Mercy that's hot.
Under a palapa. Mary went walkies, met the ferryman.
Lunch at Rogelio again.  Chile relleno-ok. Mary won lunch by ordering grilled tuna.
"Yeah watching what happens on top of these hills is really interesting."
Let's run a tab.
Reading Gravitys Rainbow and really enjoying it.

Mexico June 24th

In the rooftop pool, fireworks in the Bay, waterjet on my backside. Trifecta. We had dinner at Senor Burros. I can't seem to attach the photos to this post. Too bad. Nope my mistake. There it is on a separate screen. Please enjoy these photographs. Uniball pens are very leaky on airplanes. Our room is ridiculous and swell. We're both pretty happy.
