Revenge of the Sushi


Dominique Eichi commented last night that she was waiting for "Jaws" to come out of the ocean and gobble these folks up. Dominique was kinda reading my mind, but I sent in the sharks from a different location. It did look like these folks were just having too good a time.

Only four more days to submit a drawing or painting for this month's Windows to the Words ART "cute kids". There are some really super works posted, including Michelle Burnett's painting which I posted yesterday.

My round trip flight from Costa Rica to T
exas and back (April 8 to May8) was only $420, including taxes. Actually, it was a bit more with Pokey and TacoBelle, but that is cheaper than I've ever seen. I checked American Airlines for Atlanta ($149 each way) and San Francisco ($189 each way) plus approx $50 tax. That's incredible. I was joking with my sister and told her I should invite you all to join me when I return to Costa Rica May 9. Four days in Bocas del Toro, Panama, three days in San Jose...for less than a thousand...free guide included. Not the ritz. but not the slums either. I was kinda kidding, but, thinking about it, actually not. Would anybody be interested? Who knows...I'm going anyway.



Oh, and I remarked to Pokey and TacoBelle that they sure were a lot of trouble. They told me that they were worth it and to post this picture of REAL puppy problems. Yeah, they're worth it.

  1. Economy is lowering a lot of prices so I'm glad you decided to move at the perfect time. I showed my kids this painting and they laughed. My cat meatball said, "rowr" to Pokey and Taco Belle.

  3. That's too funny James, I love it. I'll Watch out for those sand sharks !
    I wish I could come make that trip but with the expenses of my 2 weeks in Europe I'm a little empty in the pocket book. If you make it to LA I would drive up there. Irit is up there too maybe Sheila and Edward could come down ?

  14. Wonderful rendition! Very funny!! Do I see a gull's dropping about to land on the poor man?

    Air fare is also dropping between SF and Tokyo due to a decrease of fuel surcharge. Who would thought oil price would actually go down.

  18. Good thought James,

    These sharks should eat away those who don't pay any heed to wildlife and the lovely animals.

    And that photo, i would love to play with so many puppies (there were a few right?).
