How do I go back? Five minutes ago, Ginny 89029, who was watching a show on television in the United States about Mongolia, sent me a set of photos from her smart phone to my smart phone on WhatsApp. I then e-mailed two of the photos from my own smart phone to my own e-mail address. I then went to my e-mail address, downloaded the photos into my laptop, and now have uploaded them from my laptop to this post. How do I turn my back on this technology?
Let’s see? Where was I when I suddenly got the above gift from Ginny?
We’re in December. This time next week I’ll be, God and the Good Lord Willing, in Seoul, South Korea with Terry and Kathy. This time in two weeks I’ll be sitting, God and the Good Lord Willing, in a meeting of the Black Sheep Group at the Dry Dock in Anchorage, Alaska, with Patti at-my-side.
Translation : The time has come for me to get intense about packing up and moving out of my apartment here in Ulaanbaatar. It’s a process. One I’m all too familiar with. Packing up and moving on, It’s Something I Do. NO it is not easy. NO it is not a free ride. A batch of my beloved Bobbseys will die (go into the trash) and that hurts me no end.
Last night I said my goodbyes to David (Daah Veed). Just now, this evening, I said my goodbyes to Deegi and Cindy. Saina was unable to join us.
The first course, above and below, has arrived. My bacon-potato salad.
The second course, Deegi’s spicy Korean bacon, has arrived.
The third, and final (OH BURP!) course has arrived, Cindy’s non-spicy / mild chicken.
Here, before your very eyes, is the issue with me NOT understanding a word of Mongolian. Had I known what Deegi was ordering..
Well no. This IS a program of honesty. Had I known what Deegi was ordering, I’d have still gotten my bacon-potato salad.
There were a few simidgens of Cindy’s chicken left-over and they went home to Saina.
“What’s that ‘Zilla?” .. “Yes ‘Zilla, I took all eight (8) of my own chopsticks to dinner with me. THEY are my buddies and they are thrilled to get out of the apartment and enjoy the meal with me.” .. “Yes ‘Zilla. I KNOW. It’s a little different but hey, I’m not hurting anyone or anything.”
