To try some of their Nachos ..

For-The-Life-Of-Me I haven’t a clue as to what he was reading .. Goodness Simon you sure look intense .. What is that red book .. A meeting list?

DSCN0510[1]

I see now .. he was ‘reading’ his red smart phone .. “Fooled you Cap!”

DSCN0511[1]

One order of Nachos between the two-of-us did NOT do the trick so we got a second order! Simon agreed these are the best Nachos he has found in Hong Kong. They are a solid second place all-time anytime .. ranking only behind Nachos in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

I like this new pattern ..

OH MY I GOTTA GET OUTTA HEAH!  .. CAP

THIS IS .. OF COURSE ..  PABLO-THE-PARROTS FAULT! .. IT WAS PABLO-THE-PARROT WHO WAS SINGING AS HIS MISTRESS GULLIBLE WAS BATHEING HIM .. 

♫ I gotta get outta this place,

If it’s the last thing I ever do….♫

MY ONLY HOPE NOW IS .. THAT AS I LIFT OFF FOR INDIA NEXT TUESDAY .. THAT SILLY SONG WILL GET-OUTTA-MY-HEAD!

I am the last person in this world who needs that refrain running in his brain. On a normal day I think .. “I gotta get outta heah!” .. Add THAT SILLY SONG to my thinking and goodness gracious out come my traveling shoes!

SMILES .. CAP ..

In an ocean, ‘way out yonder
(As all sapient people know),
Is the land of Wonder-Wander,
Whither children love to go;
It’s their playing, romping, swinging,
That give great joy to me
While the Dinkey-Bird goes singing
In the amfalula tree!

There the gum-drops grow like cherries,
And taffy’s thick as peas—
Caramels you pick like berries
When, and where, and how you please;
Big red sugar-plums are clinging
To the cliffs beside that sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree.

So when children shout and scamper
And make merry all the day,
When there’s naught to put a damper
To the ardor of their play;
When I hear their laughter ringing,
Then I’m sure as sure can be
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree!

For the Dinkey-Bird’s bravuras
And staccatos are so sweet—
His roulades, appoggiaturas,
And robustos so complete,
That the youth of every nation—
Be they near or far away—
Have especial delectation
In that gladsome roundelay.

Their eyes grow bright and brighter,
Their lungs begin to crow,
Their hearts get light and lighter,
And their cheeks are all aglow;
For an echo cometh bringing
The news to all and me,
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree.

I’m sure you like to go there
To see your feathered friend—
And so many goodies grow there
You would like to comprehend!
Speed, little dreams, your winging
To that land across the sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree!

THE DINKEY BIRD .. By Mr. Eugene Field .. 1850 – 1895

    Working on THREE posts all in the same day, I know, takes HOURS and HOURS. You must have really wrung yourself out! And now I understand why I was puzzled when you mentioned on the phone that Simon liked the nachos…at the time I did not remember that Simon HAD gone with you for nachos, but I let it go without questioning…this post “tells the rest of the story”. YUM!! Hugs. Patti

      Didn’t I tell you about Simon and myself doing Nachos? If not it is fun for you to discover something on a Post .. So HAPPY YOU experienced the Nachos yourself at Tequia Jacks .. Smiles .. THANKS FOR ALL THE ASSISTANCE PROOF READING ..

    I’ve copied and pasted the Dinkey Bird poem in a document on my computer. It’s awesome. I can’t help but smile when I read it. I don’t know when and how I’ll use the poem but I’m thrilled to have a copy of my own.

    Thanks,
    Shaddy
