And Now I Know — Grocery Shopping....

Yesterday for the first time in more than a week I left the house to go grocery shopping. Put on my mask and gloves, grabbed my shopping list and headed to GAGO to buy fresh vegetables. Joined the line of waiting customers outside the door. When it was my turn to enter the store, the door monitor insisted I use the hand sanitizer that was available. Even tho I was wearing gloves, she refused to allow me entrance if I didn’t use the hand sanitizer. So guess what...I used the sanitizer‼️ Loca

And Now I Know....Gardener & Coronavirus

This morning (Thursday) our Panamanian gardener appeared at our gate on time for work  Bud told him no work now.  Poor soul thought he had been fired! Bud spent several minutes explaining coronavirus and how Panama is in total quarantine. Bud paid him his full salary then asked him to return to work when quarantine is over. Our great gardener left with a better understanding of the current environment.

And Now I Know - Handling Stress

Coronavirus is teaching me a lesson of how humans respond to grief, fear, and stress. Some humans play the “blame game” and accuse others of causing the problem. Some try humor to reduce their anxiety. The bottom line is that stress makes some people say and do stupid things. I’m allowing my friends lots of freedom to express their grief, fear, or stress in the method that works for them and makes them feel OK.  This coronavirus situation will pass.  We will be better and stronger. Now I kn

Oso! The dog that was hit by a car in town!

Hi, this is Javier, it is really sad but Oso couldn't make it. He was fighting for his life during the last 4 days. Dr. Tello just called us some moments ago and said that he was not having any improvement and the best will be to put him down. It is a shame that many people saw him at the first gas station in town (before we know he was there)... they drove their cars, walked next to him and nobody did nothing for him, nobody took him at least to the vet and then call us to see if we coul

Paris

Paris is very nice and cold this time of the year. We were caught in a major protest by union workers. The protest was unannounced. 4 out of 5 tours that we booked were cancelled. We did get a nice dinner cruise. So, we have done a lot of walking and eating. All fun days inspite of the protest.

You can prevent premature aging of skin, muscles, joints & bones with the Feldenkrais Method & Alexander Technique.

Prevent premature aging of skin, muscles, joints and bones with the Feldenkrais Method and Alexander Technique.   As you age you lose suppleness because the tissues in your body structure slowly dehydrate. How do you actually get to experience the dehydration?  This is a reasonable question to have. You'll know because your joints start getting stiffer and it becomes more difficult to move your body. Some areas dehydrate faster than others, for instance the knees. Fortun

And Now I Know — Antique Clock Repair

One of my favorite items that I brought to Panama from US is a large 1920s vintage Asian wall clock. I purchased it from a surplus store many years ago. “This clock hung in the office of the Hong Kong harbormaster” was the story told by the sales clerk.  This favorite item has hung on my kitchen wall here in Boquete for several years. Recently the clock stopped working. A friend told me about a repair shop in David, so yesterday off we went to David with my clock nestled in the back seat of

Snake

Big excitement this morning. Bud was attending his ROMEO meeting when I heard a warning bark from Anouk. Before passing through the front door, I grabbed a heavy walking stick. Expected but didn’t see anyone inside the yard and both gates were closed. Anouk started digging in the flowers next to the house. I used my walking stick to separate plants and spotted a two foot+ long coral snake (deadly type). Kept striking it with my big stick, but couldn’t get leverage in the soft ground. A

And Now I Know - BCP Market Experience

Several weeks ago I purchased a purse from an indigenous lady at the BCP Market. Just the right size and color and I used it daily. Last week I was in a hurry, forced and broke the zipper. Tuesday I took the purse back to this family and asked if a replacement zipper could be installed. No problem and the lady would not accept any payment. I was so happy with the results and impressed with her “no charge” that I purchased a small purse as a gift for a friend. As I’ve thought more about

And Now I Know - Drivers License Renewal

January is my birth month and 2019 is when I had to renew my Panamanian drivers license. Visited a lab here in Boquete for blood test. Then two days later, with blood result information in hand, went to doctor office for a physical exam and memory test. (At my age this exam has to be done by an internalist or gerontologist). Dra Díaz issued the “results” letter which I took to the licensing office the following day. (Glucose and blood pressure reading seem to be the primary criteria for consider

And Now I Know - Tocumen Baggage Inspection Experience

A new experience at Tocumen last week. My one bag was stopped by a determined Custom inspector who asked me three times what food I had. Tried to assure “no food,” but she directed me to the inspection station where I had to open my luggage. Took her about two minutes to locate my bottle of water and a handful of candy mints I had dropped into the side pocket. The interesting part of this experience was my 50 minute delay caused by the lady in front of me. She had three suitcases all wrappe

And Now I Know - Pay Forward Philosophy

Heard about this piece of life philosophy? A few weeks ago Bud and I were almost ready to travel to Panama City by car the next morning. First we had dinner with friends at a local restaurant in Boquete. Then we stopped by the Delta Station to fill up with diesel and have air pressure in the tires checked. To our big surprise the attendant found a nail in one of the tires. What to do! Maybe not a good idea to start the several hours drive to PC with a damaged tire. So off to the old Te
