I bet you're wondering where I've been. Last time I disappeared for this long I came back married. I stopped announcinng my departures a few months ago. Too many people on Caye Caulker read this blog and behave badly if they know for certain we're off the island. We never intended to be gone so long, but the check in calls went just like they did the last time I left to paint and paint and paint.
Me: Sooooooooo what's goin on...
Me: How's business
Me: Uh Huh, so do you need anything sent on the water taxi?
Me: You sure?
Me: O.K., well you know where I am if you need anything. (Note to self: nexst year we're closing down and going somewhere to let our brains cool down)

Belgian women want cream cheese and salami or tomatoes
American women on the east coast want a schmear (what's a schmear?)
