I was chatting with my friend Eric the other day and this is what he said:  Eric:  I just had another 1st thing ever moment  me:  first  what?  Eric:  one of the hens ran into my room  me:  oh no  Eric:  and so I grabbed her  me:  she egged you?  Eric:  and when I was passing by the mirror to throw her […]

Happy Bday, Chris!

This is why I love the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua… Chris recently had his birthday and he was given a birthday cake (mis)spelled to order: Tona cake: winner.
