So, another month ends and October sails in with sunrises and sunsets gloriously displayed. Much less rain than we expected last month, but it may be different these next two months! November is traditionally the wettest month in Panama, or at least around Pedasi.

The week was busier with much worker activity in the back garden. Three Adoneida palms were planted near the big tree (for wind shelter plus privacy), and the path beside the house was laid. They re-used the path stones that were once our front entry. Looks nice. Then at the end of the week, two men started on the storage shed...

Chris had stitches removed in his mouth on Wednesday and another tooth removed with much less trouble. Another $50 or so. Another appointment next week, likely for root canals. He is bearing up well thus far. So a new week starts with soccer on TV today and no real plans for the week. I have had to phone a local chap to come and look at our malfunctioning fridge (again), and managed very well in Spanish as he speaks no English. Proud of myself, and feel confident using the language whenever I can. We were out for dinner at the Sport Bar on Wednesday evening and met up with lawyer Bertha who has become extremely busy these last few years. We also saw Tom Gibbs, one of the owners, and a couple of Panamenos. The restaurant needs a little attention, such as friendlier service and food that is hot or cold as required! Our mousse desserts were not set. Tom kindly did not charge us for the dessert, and instead we shared his day late birthday cake! The owners are terrific fellas, and we would like to see them succeed as they have good prices and the menu is small (it varies day to day), but tasty in general.
