our friend from missouri
who lives in roatan half the year
we met don and his wife jeanette shortly
after we arrived here.
over the years we have become dear friends
don is recently retired as an engineer who
worked for Boing.
he is one of those wonderful
centre brain type of people
can be very left brain
and chat about physics, be very analytical,
methodical and precise
but then again he can also be very humorous
showing compassion by helping build homes
here on the island.
we have gone on many adventures together:
exploring the back roads of coxen hole where
no gringo would go
(yes on purpose)
snorkeling the deep blue waters of pigeon key,
climbing the mountain hike up carambola gardens,
braved the air show at infinity bay
(those honduran pilots are crazy and fly lower then
you'd think possible!)
we have enjoyed many sunsets
and many meals together
we have played many card games together
don has the patience of 10 men when it comes to teaching
he has been teaching us to play 500.
in fact he is writing a computer program for the games which
has required hours and hours and hours
to binary language to do!
speaking of that,
our daughter emily made him a birthday cake
and then wrote Don's name
So worth celebrating?
without a doubt!!
so I rise my glass to you
(which i think I am the only one who
affectionately calls him that)
Blessings 10 fold!
