We eat breakfast beneath a tree. The sea is as higher as ever. The waves are smaller sized. We consume pancakes and fruit.

Alison and Jason go for swim. I create notes. We pack.

Jason goes to the bar. He books a taxi to meet us at the bridge. It is a grey vehicle. It is driven by Chico. Chico is an older guy. The hotel lady asks us not to take a diverse taxi. If we do then Chico will not trust the hotel lady once again.

Jason asks the hotel owner for the student card. We look at it. It is a lame fake. The dope may possibly be Polish. He is not a student. We have his credit card.

We stroll to the bridge. On the bridge two gringos take pictures of every other. Alison knows 1 of them. The other wears a teeshirt. It is green. It says I swear to drunk I’m not god. He is Irish.

We wait by the bridge. We wait a long time. A taxi comes. It is not grey. It is not Chico. We wait some much more. The sun is fervent. We wait in shade. An additional taxi comes. It is red. It is not Chico. The driver slams the boot. It gradually yawns. He slams it once again. It yawns. He jiggles and slams. He drives off. His boot lid waves.

A giant truck rumbles down the road. The road is wide adequate for one VW Bug abreast. The truck manoeuvres back and forth. It makes soot and carbon monoxide. It reverses and wiggles. It functions itself around. It drives back up the road.

An additional taxi comes. It is not Chico or grey. We get in. The taxi rocks and rolls. The road doubles stream-bed. The giant truck is stopped. Workmen stand. We rock and roll previous inch perfect. We belly-scrape and wheel-arch into the town. We get off at the port.

Guatemalans besiege us. Jason asks for a launch. Besiegers point. We talk with the anointed one. He will meet us here at 14:00. He will take 500Q to take us to Texan Bay.

We stand in fusion-star mash. Alison and Jason want to consume nearby. I have my heart set on Tilingo Lingo. It is the other side of town. Alison and Jason humour me. We stroll in quick-wave infrared. Photons dance off walls.

We order. We wait. Jason and I drink mojitos. They taste faintly of lime juice. The mint is black with green bits. We wait. Jason has ceviche. Alison has omelette. I have curried shrimp. Stay with what you know.

I see two Australian girls backpack past. A single is barefoot. The asphalt is gooey with wave-particle duality and super-collider energies. I hear frying feet.

We walk up the hill and down to the port in sun sear. We discover our boatman. We launch up the canyon. Pelicans scatter. Floating plastic bobs in our wake.

Sailing boats flock on the lake near Texan Bay. Orion waits at anchor in the bay. Andy orders the boatman to dock on the starboard side. He is unsmiling. He is Captain Bligh. The dinghy is tied up on the port side.

We are back on board. A regatta finishes on the lake. Other boats come into the bay. They anchor in poorly-selected points. Andy judges distances and thinks about changing winds.

A Liverpool registered ketch chugs in vaguely. It moors also close. They broke their staysail. The sails are not furled but messed. Captain and crew reduced the dinghy from its divots. They get into the dinghy. They motor off to the bar. The ketch swings at anchor. Its sails rumple in mess. This would not happen on Orion.

It is afternoon. We swim. The water is deep jade green and complete of organic fuzz. The forest and the reedbeds surround us. We are cool.

Andy drives the dinghy around river methods. We explore narrow channels. We see Guatemalan houses and fishermen. We see girls washing garments. We see females cooking. We sip Jason’s cocktail with ice in cold mugs. We see a backhoe digging a parking lot. The new parking lot is in front of a huge house. The house is in clearfell.

We putter back to Texan bay. Jason has manage. We go to the bar. Andy remembers Sandy. Sandy does not bear in mind Andy. Sandy is alcoholic. She is covered in tattoos. She is blutered.

We sit on the grassy bank. We drink beers. Light fades. We dinghy back to Orion. The crew of the Liverpool ketch have not returned. The sails are nevertheless messed. Alison and Jason and Andy prepare supper. We eat guacamole, coleslaw and rice. The men consume chicken breasts. We drink wine.

Andy dives in. We swim. Andy encourages Alison and Jason to dive from the deck. Alison gets water in her ear. It hurts. Andy says diving once again will clear it. She jumps. It is worse.

We talk about education and raising youngsters. The Liverpool crew return. They go beneath.

We go to bed at 11.

gustav
Irish Tattoos

Image by maureen_sill
my father’s grandfather gustav
is my favorite member of my entire loved ones
i have only met him once, but i know far more about him than anybody else
i have heard much more stories about this man than any other human getting in my entire life
i wonder so numerous far more issues about him, ever considering that i was little, listening to my dad inform stories about living in california, louisiana, and ohio with his russian grandfather, that he served as a pilot in the war, THE war, THE war, THE war,,,
soldiers from the previous so distinct from the soldiers of the now
stories about watermelon seeds and the tattoo on his left arm
his pocket watch and inability to don’t forget directions
his wife’s cooking and his daughters, my grandmother
how insanity ran in his family members
his stays at mental hospitals
his gentleness, his 4 dogs, my father’s paper route, gustav’s paper sales
reminds me of why i do it, i do it to be closer to them
i cannot speak to them so i will do the exact same factors as them
and i will know them in this way, i will love them in this way
my father loved him a lot more than anyone in the planet
i cannot envision my father actively loving anyone, at all
he is the reason my father loves baseball
for that reason gustav is the purpose why i adore baseball
it is in our tree, our lineage and marrow, he has planted a summertime love affair with dirt and scoreboards in our names, the sort of really like that lets us share a name
i met gustav when, when i was a child
he shortly died following the day we met, in his sleep
gustav immigrated to the united states when he was 17, arriving with his four brothers in a harbor in boston
my mom told me that the one particular time in which our physical paths crossed, he held me for many hours
and called me a baby carrot, with my bright orange red hair, then he stated my name and mentioned,
&quotMaureen! Oh my. It is appropriate, for a baby clearly of Irish heritage.&quot
my mom laughed and said, russian as well, as well
i do not bear in mind this whatsoever, certainly
but i can think about this happening, from what i knew of him, from the volumes i know of him, from the books i’ve heard my family speak on him,
i know that
i was secure in his hands and
my name was secure in his mouth

Irish Tattoos

Image by mutrock
From the Band’s Net Web page:

The Shining Thistle Pipe Band was was formed by three Helena residents in 1998. The band has since grown to consist of nine pipers and six drummers as effectively as our honorary members, banner carriers and students. The band has performed at numerous events over the years some recurring and some 1-time events. Beneath is a list of the events we have participated in over the years, which help comprise our history and identity as a band.

Honoring the heroes of 9/11 each September 11th given that 2001 at the Patriot Day Memorial Tribute.
Performing for the reunions and anniversaries of the Initial Specific Service Force (FSSF), also identified as the &quotDevil’s Brigade&quot
Marching in the Ancient Order of Hibernian’s St. Patrick’s Day parades
Performing for the Irish flag raising at the Capitol Rotunda on St. Patrick’s Day
Honoring veterans in the East Helena VFW parades on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day
Marching in the July 4th parades in Ennis and Lincoln
Supporting the Race for the Cure, Relay for Life and NAMI Stroll with our music
Performing at several elementary schools throughout the Helena valley
Organizing and participating in the 2006 FSSF Memorial Tattoo at Fort Harrison
Dedication of the Thomas Francis Meagher statue in Fort Benton in 2009

The Shining Thistle Pipe Band is immensely proud to be the official pipe band of the Initial Specific Service Force (FSSF) also recognized as the Devil’s Brigade. We proudly put on their signature V-42 Stiletto when we march in parades and hope to quickly be wearing their tartan on our kilts. In current years we have performed at their annual reunions and are constantly proud to play a tune that is uniquely theirs, Scotland the Brave!

The band also competes in a variety of highland games, like Yellowstone Highland Games and the Bitterroot Scottish/Irish Festival. The games are a lot of entertaining and help the band grow in its proficiency. The games are also a fantastic chance to enjoy a dram!

Oatman, Arizona (18)
Irish Tattoos

Image by Ken Lund
Oatman is a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, United States. Located at an elevation of 2700 ft/896m, it began as a tent camp quickly after two prospectors struck a million gold find in 1915, though the region had been already settled for a number of years. Oatman’s population grew to a lot more than 3,500 in the course of a year.

Soon after a handful of other names, Oatman was named in the posthumous honor of Olive Oatman, a young Illinois girl who was kidnapped by (presumably) Yavapai Indians and forced to perform as a slave. She was later traded to Mohave Indians who adopted her as a daughter and had her face tattooed in the custom of the tribe. She was released in 1855 near the present web site of the town.

In 1921, a fire burned down numerous of Oatman’s smaller sized buildings, but spared the Oatman Hotel. Built in 1902, the now-Oatman Hotel is the oldest two-story adobe structure in Mohave County, a Mohave County historical landmark and is particularly renowned as the honeymoon cease of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard[3] right after their wedding in Kingman on March 18, 1939. Gable fell in adore with the region and returned often to play poker with the miners. The Gable/Lombard honeymoon suite is 1 of the hotel’s major attractions. The other is &quotOatie the Ghost.&quot &quotOatie,&quot actively promoted by the hotel’s current owners, is a friendly poltergeist whose identity is believed to be that of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner who died behind the hotel, presumably from excessive alcohol consumption. Flour’s body wasn’t discovered until two days right after his death and it was hastily buried in a shallow grave close to exactly where he was identified.

1924 would see United Eastern Mines, the town’s major employer permanently shut down operations. By 1941, the remainder of the town’s gold mining operations had been ordered shut down by the US Government as element of the country’s war effort considering that metals other than gold were needed. Oatman was fortunate insofar as it was positioned on busy U.S. Route 66 and was in a position to cater to travelers driving among Kingman and Needles, California. Even that advantage was short-lived as the town was totally bypassed in 1953 when a new route amongst Kingman and Needles was constructed. By the 1960s, Oatman was all but abandoned.

Oatman has undergone a renaissance of sorts in recent years thanks to burgeoning worldwide interest in Route 66 and the explosive growth of the nearby gaming town of Laughlin, Nevada, which promotes visits to the town. Wild burros freely roam the town and can be hand-fed carrots and &quotburro chow,&quot both readily obtainable in virtually each retailer in town. Though usually gentle, the burros are in reality wild and signs posted all through Oatman advise guests to exercise caution. The burros are descended from pack animals turned loose by early prospectors, and are protected by the US Department of the Interior. Weekends in Oatman can see anything from classic auto rallies to mock &quotWild West&quot shootouts correct down the middle of old 66. Independence Day celebrations consist of a contest exactly where participants attempt to cook an egg on the sidewalk with the help of solar devices. Along with the rest of Arizona’s US 66 towns, Oatman is fiercely proud of its Route 66 heritage and replicas of 66′s black-on-white US highway shield are posted all more than the town. Route 66 souvenirs abound and a lot of tourists have pasted autographed a single-dollar bills on the walls and ceiling of the Oatman Hotel’s bar and restaurant. Estimates of the number of bills run into the thousands.

From Laughlin, Needles or Bullhead City, Arizona, Oatman is a short drive on State Route 95 to its intersection with Boundary Cone Road in Fort Mohave. About ten miles (16 km) east of SR 95, Boundary Cone Road meets with old 66, now named the &quotOatman Highway.&quot Oatman is only about four miles (6.5 km) from there.

Route 66 souvenirs abound and a lot of tourists have pasted autographed one particular-dollar bills on the walls and ceiling of the Oatman Hotel’s bar and restaurant. Estimates of the quantity of bills run into the thousands.

From Laughlin, Needles or Bullhead City, Arizona, Oatman is a short drive on State Route 95 to its intersection with Boundary Cone Road in Fort Mohave. About 10 miles (16 km) east of SR 95, Boundary Cone Road meets with old 66, now named the &quotOatman Highway.&quot Oatman is only about 4 miles (six.five km) from there.

Met Allie appropriate before leaving – thanks to us stopping to pester Irish Mike. Sometimes, being a intelligent-ass with heavily tattooed buddies pays off. -)

One word to describe her: Guuuhhhh…

Total sweetheart and knew how to put on those elk leather pants (Kat has a jacket of the same material that is butter-soft and droolworthy). Would adore to have her model for me as she was very bubbly and seemed to be a lot of entertaining to hang about with.

She also called my mother a saint. No, not for placing up with me – :-P – but due to the fact of her former profession (a teacher).
