Keeping You In Stitches

Happy May Day!

Posted on: May 1, 2013

Back in the old country when I was but a wee lass……May Day, May 1st, was a great holiday.  We spent the week before May 1st making May Day baskets.  Then we would fill them with candy, spring flowers, etc. – on May 1st, you would deliver your May Day baskets, hang them on the front door or your friend’s homes, ring the door bell, and run like hell so they wouldn’t see who was delivering May Day baskets to you!  Sort of signified the coming of spring in Michigan (for us, anyway).

I kept up the tradition with our girls for awhile too….of course, by then, people had no clue what was going on…hmmm, perhaps that’s the beginning of dumbing down America! LOL

Here in Costa Rica it’s  “labor day” and most things are closed.

With President Obama coming here on Friday, traffic will be a worse mess than normal; except for the closed roads.  We live on the side of a mountain where planes coming in to land at Juan Santa Maria airport, make their wide turn in their approach.  We are hoping to see Air Force One make that approach!

I had wanted to go and see the “parade” but decided to heed the warnings of traffic delays, etc. , so we’ll just stay home and watch it on TV.

Welcome to Costa Rica on Friday, President Obama…..too bad you can’t come to Atenas and meet lots of ex-pats!

Pura Vida!

Mike read in the news that Obama isn’t going to make any public appearances anyway. We are hoping to see Air Force One too!

Yep, we read that too. And the way things are going, it’s probably for the best. Altho’ you would think the Embassy would have a meet and greet for us ex-pats!
