NOV 9, 19 .. A PROMSE MADE IS A DEBT UNPAID

Yesterday ‘I promised’ to post a few photos tomorrow. Yesterday’s Tomorrow is NOW.

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER. 

One day right after another.

Our amazing weather just keeps-rolling-on.

PROJECTS

“What on Earth Captain?” .. “You’re gluing yet-another box?”

I glued the top flaps of the box tightly down to the interior of the box.

This makes the box MUCH MORE RIGID AND STURDY.

Six liters of fruit juice weighs about 14 pounds so I use my little luggage trolley to help me out. The problem is the bungee-cords were distorting the poor little box. He is a one-and-only and I need him. Now he and I are both much happier.

Here’s the thing with My Projects : Trust me, each one really does something I need done to improve my life.

DINNER

Yesterday, after getting peanut butter, I treated my friend Deegi and her daughter to dinner at my favorite restaurant, one she and her husband introduced me to in July of 2015. 

I’m not fond of their bacon-potato salad. I’m nuts about it.

Like our weather, one great meal after another. Notice the bacon-potato salad in the above and below three photos. I nibbled away the cucumbers and tomatoes and lettuce waiting for their meals to arrive.

Looks good enough to eat!

I treasure their friendship.

Tomorrow? 

Another meal at the same restaurant with Deegi and Cindy and David.

I’m not talking while the flavor lasts.

Cap and Patti who has eaten here with us and who knows about their bacon-potato salad.


NOV 8, 19 .. WAS ONE BUSY DAY

MY KITCHEN

My kitchen has become the ‘home’ for an 8am Friday morning meeting. This dates-back to the 20th of last September when I initially ‘hosted’ the meeting for three weeks. I am no longer the ‘host’ but the building the meeting normally meets in is undergoing some restoration work and has been closed for a few weeks. So I have to get up earlier than I am used to getting up and have my kitchen ready for a small meeting. No big deal.

HONG KONG

Unless you are ‘living-under-a-rock’ you know that there is a lot of ‘unrest’ in Hong Kong. Going back to earlier this year, when I knew my Russian Visa would expire 14 September, I had to leave Russian Siberia before 14 September. I had planned to winter in Hong Kong after three months here in Ulaanbaatar.

After three months of mental back-and-forth, forth-and-back, should I / or shouldn’t I winter in Hong Kong, things crystalized when a medical condition involving Patti has come-to-pass. I will be staying in Hong Kong for, the maximum, one month. My decision to even go to Hong Kong, let alone stay awhile, was reached after many long talks with my Hong Kong resident friends who live there permanently. They have a sound basis of experience at to how to avoid trouble. Weekends are the issue. The nights in particular. So watch it then. I’m flying in mid-week, mid-day. A good, low profile time to avoid grief.

Then I will return to the U.S. to assist Patti with the situation we are looking at.

MIAT.

MIAT is Mongolian Airlines. So after the morning meeting, out and off I went downtown to the MIAT Office. Just getting downtown and back is a physical challenge due to the crowding on the buses. In addition there is a considerable amount of walking from Peace Avenue to the MIAT Office and back to get a bus home. Ironing out all of my travel arrangements also takes some doing.

THE POST OFFICE

While downtown I always visit the Main Post Office. 

PEANUT BUTTER

I’m almost out of peanut butter so I went with a friend to pick up her daughter after school and we then got me resupplied with peanut butter.

DINNER

I hosted them for a wonderful dinner.

PROJECTS

I started and I finished one.

POST CARDS

I did a few hours work on them.

AND?

I finally ran-out-of-gas and crashed.

I’m going to post some photos of the project and our dinner in tomorrow’s post.

Cap and Patti

“What aren’t you telling us Captain?”

“Lots.”
