Bon Voyage Henri! (he's French)
Although we had met only a few days ago, I had grown kind of fond of the little guy and it was hard to know that he would be smuggled into Mexico via suitcase in a few days.
So I kept knitting while we talked about poetry, friendships, relationships, and our amazement of the Argentina/Serbia-Montenegro game. Did I tell you guys? Argentina won 6-0. Henri agreed that this was an amazing accomplishment and that the team already deserved the cup. (french bears are smart!)
Then we continued to talk about our love of technology, and I showed him one of my prized possessions: our maid.
I love Juanita. She is so eager, and fast, and wants to help put all the time, she gets into every little corner!... However, while Henri and I were chatting about the internet, and other technological wonders, Juanita was too eager to impress us:
Ya, she ate up Salina!!
While I was cleaning this up, Henri decided to mentally prepare himself for his voyage by relaxing in our brand new deck chairs. He was very impressed by our geraniums. (I am still impressed that I have not killed them yet.)
Oh how we will miss Henri the French bear. I know Tony will miss having another person to watch the soccer games with that is not too busy trying to figure out if Argentina can beat the teams playing to enjoy the games.
But, we know that he will be keeping Tony's grandma company, and enjoying her cakes, (and maybe some tequila), so that helps to ease the sadness.
And myabe, just maybe, we can convince his cousin Hugo to come stay with us for a little bit.
Hugo is from Spain... where they make Sangria... YUM!
