more random conversations.
I'm carrying stuff out to the car for some expedition. A man passing by the gate stops and asks if I have anything needs repair (sic).
Me: No, but thank you.
MPBG: Any machines need fix?
ME: No, we just rent here.
MPBG: Do you have a phone number?
Me (lying): No, no phone.
MPBG: Well, I see you in December. You still be here?
Me: No, we go home in October.
MPBG: Oh, my birthday in October.
ME: Well, Happy Birthday in October.
MPBG: Thank you, thank you, thank you. I like you. Can I have your number?
Jack just told you about one story at Sister Bodily's mother's funeral. I would like to share the whole thing but some other time.
Brother Williamson (a lovely man from our branch) to me: Have you looked at her in the box?
BW: You can go look at her.
Me: That's OK.
BW: You don't want to just go look at her in the box?
BW: Really, it's OK if you want to look at her.
I'm embarrased that Jack put the green t-shirt picture in because I try to be a little more decorous. However, you ain't seen nuttin. There were two young women at that funeral that I simply could not stop staring at. I even asked the two sisters sitting on either side of me if that was actually what I was seeing. They confirmed that it was. They left during the first congregational singing and I'm worried it's because I could not stop staring.

Don't know the name of this tree but they are all over the island. They have just turned this color in the last month or six weeks.
