“Oink oink oink oink, oink onik. Oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink.
Oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink, oink oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink
oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink oink. Oink oink oink oink oink!
Oinkidy, oinkidy, oink-oink.”

Unfortunately Mr. Penn only speaks “Swinehili”, so we have no idea what he said.

“Hat Tricks” in Cancun posted by on April 28, 2009

This past weekend the Cancun International Womens Club held their annual fund raising dnner at the Le Meridien Hotel. We were entertained by Cynthia, and two other singers and a piano player. They had a raffle and then dinner was served. I have to say that the food and service were excellent. After dinner they named the Woman of the Year. This years recipient was Kimberley Rivero (River Girl) She received a beautiful bouquet of roses along with the honor.

FROLICING FUN FOR FOUR FRIENDS posted by on April 25, 2009

This past Sunday we enjoyed another of our friend Steve’s booze cruises. There were 42 of us aboard the “Velvet Tiger” out of the Playa Tortugas dock in the hotel zone. We introduced our friends Al and Louise to their first ever Cancun booze cruise. We had a good wind for the sails and perfect weather. The VT is a dual hull catamaran with a good Captain and crew. We first sailed over to the harbor on Isla Mujeres where we dropped off all those that wanted to snorkel the waters along the lighthouse. This is a drift type snorkel, so the boat picked everyone up downwind about 30 mins. later. We then dried off and headed to dock #7 in downtown Isla for a free hour of exploration of the village. After re-boarding the VT we headed out to sea towards the south end of the island to the Oasis Beach Club for a buffet lunch and some beach games. Al and Louise won a game for Canada and were awarded a couple of very nice T-shirts from Steve. We were starving as it was already about 2pm. The buffet was delicious and filling. A couple of hours pasted quickly. We got back on board again and headed back towards Cancun. Along the way we stopped and let out the spinnaker sail so those who were brave enough could go for a ride. It was a long very enjoyable day of fun in the sun and all was good.
