There is a Conference of the Americas in the City this weekend, so traffic was diverted all over Panama, and no doubt a police and militia presence was conspicuous. I was invited to a reception with Stephen Harper put on by the Canadian Embassy, but couldn't get there. Just as well, because I would've organized all those Canadians into a protest against the exchange rate! It is killing us all here. 30% ! Who is this jerk kidding anyway? Canadian voters, let your dissatisfaction be known!
Our latest kitten family has ventured along the patio to the food and water source, and they have discovered the climbing tree while here. Such fun watching their antics!

Our pals, Bil and MaryEllen have been occupied the last 10 days with visiting family,, so their quick visit today was welcomed. Today is a decade birthday for Bill, who looks (and acts) about 35, maybe 40. He is a great friend and I bet all his pals in Ohio miss him a lot! We wish them both a great year:
