    I am envious of your students taking a class on Belize.

    I love Belize, I’d go back there in a minute. I loved the chicken busses, the punta musicians who were also the police (and army and administrative assistants.) They travelled around from town to town, played music at night, talked to people in the afternoon. They were rock stars.

    Belize City has some weird issues. But the Toledo District rocked. Punta Gorda may be my favorite town on earth.Report

    My 3 are still young. While I’m not anxious for them to get older, of course they will, and these are the types of days I dream for when they do. Thanks for the reminder that everyday, all around you, people are enjoying the shit out of doing, well, whatever, because their doing it with their people.Report

      Just keep in mind as they grow that there are going to be times when you just feel too busy to do these kinds of things, and that’s when you need to stop and say, nothing matters as much as my kids, and they’re going to be grown up and gone way too soon, so I’m going to do this with them anyway.Report

    Can’t wait until my kiddos are old enough for days like this. Kudos to Papa Hanley for providing the Daughters Hanley (and himself) with what sounds like a magnificent little Sunday.Report

    In New York, traffic would have forbidden such fortuitous timing but you might gain some time because everything is closer.Report

    That sounds like a nice day! I spend the weekend doing preliminary cleaning-cleaning the first layer of filth off-in prep for company over Thanksgiving. As a reward I got myself a present. I spent a bit more but got a 17 year Balvenie Double Wood. Cracked that Sat night. Yum.

    I took my oldest daughter (the art student) to see The Book of Life and we quite liked it. I particularly enjoyed it for how it examined the traditional construction of Manhood from a Mexican point of view. Macho is not an English word, after all.Report

    a sticky note that read, “I love you.”

    The more I think about this, the sadder I get. The most likely explanation for the note is that the book was a returned gift; unread and unwanted by its receiver.Report
