¡Feliz Año Nuevo!


The tail end of the year is as interesting as the tail end of the buses here in Panamá. Actually, I've always found the end of the year to be kind of anti-climatic. I'm getting ready to head over to the church for the Watchnight service, and realized that this is my last chance to post this year. The Dance Party has only been around since the end of October, but there are already people who visit every day. I want to thank those who have become part of the community here: Matty Boy, my friend for the past twenty-odd years (and some of those years were odder than others), the kings of the Global Center, Leonardo and Luiz, Madpriest for his advice and music criticism, the Susans: Sue S. and Tía Sue, la Reverenda Caminante, my daughter Tara Mobley, el Almirante, ePiscosours, Eileen the Episcopali-fem, Faddah Kurt, Faddah John Kirkly, Father Jake, ALL the lurkers (my favorite being the lurker from "unknown country") and the Lovely Mona who is very patient and a great photographer, too. Thanks to everyone for your comments here. To anyone whom I have forgotten, perdóname ¡Feliz Año Nuevo a Todos!

Prospero Ano Nuevo to you too, Padre, and to todos los Dresbachs and Dres-babies.

Peace on earth, good will to folks, let's do better this year.

Feliz y prospero año a ud. tambien. Conosco su país, Panamá, lo visité en 1987... durante una época interesante (pots and pans protests in the streets every day). Off to la misa del Santo Nombre in freezing rain, ugh.

Ya que toda la gente lo dice en castellano, aquí estoy yo para también desearos un feliz 2007, y que vosotros tengáis paz, harmonía y muchas alegrías desde ahora y para todo el siempre.

Que nuestro Dios os bendiga!

Amen!

PS.: Perdonadme, que mi castellano es castizo (pues vivi en España y seguro que lo que escribo es un poco raro para vosotros).

The Lovely Mona was nice enough to explain the difference between having a tilde and not having a tilde in the Spanish word for year. Apologies to anyone I unintentionally offended.

In future, I will do the clumsy n~ for tilde-n, since my keyboard does not give me a good option, as in an~o and sen~or.

I can't even find my n-yey...I mean, it's not that I don't know they exist...I even have friends that have the name Ordonez (our Alcalde for one)...I tell everyone in my villege that my name is Ordonez-Fuentes (they the the heavies around here) Leonardo Ricardo Fuentes O. thanks you for being you Padre and I love my fellow visitors here at the Dance Party...do you really know what country people are posting from? That means it's no secret that I'm where I am (which even can be confusing to me and I'm there...wherever "there" is).

Big Hugs my brothers and sisters!

Right Luiz,

Make it worse!

You're *supposedly* studying to bring peace thoroughout the lands and here you are rattling mi caja!

Hummmph!

Have you ever noticed that when you're at the hospital all the Latinos scream OYEEEEEE/AYEEEEE when they hurt and the Gringo scream Oouuch or OOUUCH? What thouest screamuth in Brazil?

So many details to pay attention to and Luiz introduces additional hemispheric foreign substances and I still can't find my ñ!

I'm zipping my lips (for a couple of seconds just in case something more poureth from mi boca)!
