Ok. No more traveling… for 2 months. Things went pretty fast in Costa Rica. I didn’t have a whole lot of time to do much, but that was cool since I spent it all with family. My reason for the trip was to attend my cousin’s wedding. So with such a big occasion I got to see most, if not all my family there. Occasions like that are rare for me, so I enjoyed it.

Evelyn & Me

Not to get all sappy or anything, but there is a special place in my heart for my cousin, Evelyn. I didn’t grow up with cousins all around, since they were all in Costa Rica and I grew up in the states. But whenever I would meet up with her, she made me feel welcome and always put up with the bad Spanish I spoke. I can only imagine how annoying it must have been for her to commmunicate with me. As for her as a person, you won’t find many people out there with a bigger heart. I am thrilled that she and her new husband Frank are starting a new life together. And I’m glad I was there to see the ceremony. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.


I was able to bring back a few things. Namely some cigars and Costa Rican beer called Imperial. But when you say Imperial, say it with some latin flavor. Sound it out like, Im-pur-ee-all! I think it’s good and I’m not a huge drinker. But my buddy Jay is. His family is from Shiner, TX. Home of the Shiner brewery, and he loves the Imperial beer. So someone who knows his beer likes it. And trust me when I tell you, Jay knows his beer. So It must be good! Anyway I brought over some. So let’s see: Costa Rican Cigars. Cuban cigars. Costa Rican Beer. How do you say “poker night” in Spanish?

And just for the hell of it, here is a link with reviews on Costa Rican beer. Kind of old, though. http://www.realbeer.com/nmvbp/rev_cr.htm

    Your buddy Jay from Shiner is a good man. I love Shiner, TX and Shiner beer. You must have good taste in friends.

Today's Deep Thought

  • I remember that one fateful day when coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. 'You don't have to tell me,' I said. 'I'm off the team, aren't I?' 'Well,' said coach, 'you never were really on the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. you show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times.' It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
