Checking In

Hi everybody!
The Lovely Mona, Señorita Chompita Wiggletail and your Padre are now in la Ciudad de Los Angeles preparing to return to Panamá. We are staying with our friend Faddah-Priest Butch Natters Gamarra. We have been very busy doing stuff, so I haven't had much time for blogging. We arrived Wednesday afternoon and returned the rental car to the airport. On Thursday we went to the Panamanian Consulate in San Diego to get some documents authenticated. Yesterday we visited with Jennifer and Katalina, Butchie's ex and daughter, and today we're going to Venice Beach. Tomorrow church, Monday do laundry and prepare for Tuesday's flight. Chompy, The Cutest Dog In All The Americas™ will be flying to Houston on Monday evening, and then all three of us will head for Panamá on Tuesday, arriving in the evening. Then life should return to what passes for normal. If the telephones are working (I understand the the phones on our street have been out for four weeks!) regular blogging will return, but for now things will remain intermittent.
Stay outta trouble!

Safe travels dear Padre Mickey and la familia. Dios mio, I have a phobia against flying. I would find a way to go by boat! I hear that Panama is especially capable of handling a few boats.

Mimi's Cafe, by the arquitectura, looks to serve Cal Mex, but why did she steal all those sombrillas from Starbucks?

¡Vaya con Dios amigos!

We AWAIT! Hurry home, the whole of Central America has been boring without you (and you know how nuts it is around here).

¡Vaya con Dios!

Say Hi to my Family - it seems a little unfair that you get to hang out with them and not me...but that's just me being the bratty little sister.

Safe and blessed travels for all!

Hey, abrazos to Butch and to you, too, and safe travels back to Panamá.

A Happy returning to you all! We await the result ;=)

Grandmère Mimi said...

May God bless you, the Lovely Mona, and Señorita Chompita Wiggletail and keep you safe in your travels.

That's a nice place I have there, isn't it?

Paul said...

Mimi, I knew you got around. There's one of your places here in ABQ. But my home town too?

Safe travels, y'all! The world has been missing you.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Mimi, I knew you got around.

On the contrary, Paul, you have no idea of the chains that bind me....

Jane R said...

Mimi, you have a lovely place in Greensboro as well. It's particularly nice for breakfast, in my opinion. The only thing is, it's in a shopping center. But it's so nice you almost forget you're in a shopping center. Also, I don't think there are a lot of windows there. (I don't get there often so I am visualizing from memory.)

You sure are quite the national enterpreneur. Or is that entrepreneuse? Which sounds a little racy.

I See You!
