Harry's Friends Cook Up Family Festival


Are you yearning for an
old-fashioned Beach party? A
celebration where you can
bring the kids and enjoy real
family fun? Do you want to go
to a party that's all about good
food, good friends, good will,
and good deeds?
You are in luck. This very
Friday, August 18, beginning at
5 p.m. at Flounder's, you can go
to the Harry Gowens Memorial
Barbecue, a cookout much like
the ones Harry put together on


The Pensacola Beach Resi-
dents and Leaseholders Associa-
tion is currently implementing
plans toward the goal of rebuild-
ing their membership. Tona de
Mers, president, announced at
their August 8 meeting that the
website, www.pbrla.org will
soon be up and running with the
same format as the previous site.
The membership approved
an expenditure to send a news-
letter and survey to all Pensacola
Beach residents and leasehold-
ers.
"I am really excited about
the newsletter which is just a few
weeks out," Victoria Clarkin,
PBRLA secretary said. "The de-
livery of the newsletter will show
people that we are back. I think
it will bring in a double number
of members. We have worked
hard and the fruits of our labor


hundreds of occasions.
The menu is pure Harry with
his barbecue partner, Wally
Pecevich, manning the smoker
and serving pork barbecue. The
rest of the old beach menu in-
cludes cole slaw, fish, and cheese
grits. Kids will have their own
buffet featuring chicken fingers,
French fries, macaroni and
cheese, popcorn shrimp, and all
the ketchup they can pour on their
plates.
Music will be provided by


are about to show."
At the conclusion of the
business meeting, Greg Smith
and Jackie Bell from the Be
Ready Alliance Coordinating for
Emergencies, made a presenta-
tion.
Smith told the group that
BRACE's goal is to make
Escambia County the most disas-
ter resilient community in the
United States. He said the group
aims for complete coordination
of efforts in four phases of emer-
gency operations preparation,
mitigation, response and recov-
ery. The Residents Association is
a member of BRACE.
The PBRLA will meet next
on September 12 at 6 p.m. at the
Pensacola Beach Community
Church. All beach residents are
welcome to come to the meetings
and to join the Association.

Repercussions from the hur-
ricanes of the past two years con-
tinue to plague the residents of
Pensacola Beach and the Santa
Rosa Island Authority. The SRIA,
at its August 9 meeting, approved
a new policy for the start of re-
building single family residences.
The change to the previous policy
allows residents sixty months to
begin rebuilding and eighty-four
months for completion from May
4, 2006. Beyond those dates,
leaseholders who request addi-
tional time will be subject to a
building time extension fee lev-
ied in increments of $2000 per
year. Those who require a build-
ing time extension that reaches
past May 4, 2012 will be handled
on a case by case basis.
The Board also granted Co-
conuts by the Sea a six month
extension to present conceptual
plans for a new structure. The
company will have eighteen
months to complete construction.
Another vacant commercial
property came before the Board
when Noel Faddis presented a
proposal for building the Santa
Rosa Villas Shopping Center on
the Circle K site on Via de Luna,
next to RMI. Attorney Tom
Gilliam, speaking for Faddis, said
his client would like to have three
years to develop the project. The
Board directed staff to meet with
Gilliam and Faddis, and bring
more complete information to the
September Committee meetings.
The monthly report, tradi-
tionally presented by the presi-
dent of the Residents and Lease-
holders Association over more
than 25 years, was voted off the


designed for the Memorial, will
be on sale.
Tickets are available now at
the Beach School; RMI, 1591 Via
de Luna, and the Real Estate
House, 731 Pensacola Beach
Blvd. Adult tickets are $10 and
children's tickets are $5. The
charge at the door will be $12 and
$7 respectively.
Proceeds will go to
Pensacola Beach Elementary
School. Just two weeks ago the
charter school opened its doors
to 118 students.

agenda. Board members said the
number of members in the orga-
nization did not realistically rep-
resent the leaseholders and resi-
dents.
"By allowing this group and
no others to report it is perceived
that we have sanctioned their ac-
tivities," Board member Jimmie
Perkins said. "This may notbe the
case."
In her final report to the
Board, Tona de Mers, PBRLA
president, said her membership
did not care whether or not they
were included in the agenda.
Chairman Thom Blas as-
sured Ms. de Mers that their con-
cerns would always be welcome
and could be placed on the
agenda, or they could speak at the
Visitor's Forum.
Dr. Tom Campanella, cast
the lone vote against the action.
The installation of new
street signs, a FEMA financed
project, will begin when the fi-
nal design is approved, and invi-
tations to bid will be sent. The
design before the Board is con-
structed of vinyl and PVC, with
reflective lettering. Bill Griffith,
Board vice chairman, will ap-
prove the shade of gray to be used
on the signs.
Buck Lee, in his Manager's


Report, asked the Board to con-
sider creating a new position for
a Human Resource/Events and
Tourism Coordinator. More infor-
mation on the position will be
presented at the September meet-
ing.
Buck reminded the Board
that a segment on Santa Rosa Is-
land would be aired on the Dis-
covery Channel at 8 p.m., Au-
gust 28. The Biker Build-Off
showcased the Island during their
ride here on March 7.
The Board approved reports
which brought good news that the
SRIA financial condition contin-
ues to improve. And, Sandy
Johnston, Pensacola Beach
Chamber of Commerce executive
director reported that the Beach
is getting back to normal. Four
thousand, seven hundred, ninety-
one visitors registered in the
Visitor's Information Center dur-
ing July. While most of the tour-
ists came from surrounding
states, some came from far away
places like Turkey, Mongolia,
Germany, France, and Chile.
The SRIA Committee meet-
ings will be at 5 p.m. on Septem-
ber 6 at the Authority office. The
meetings are open to the public
and individuals may sign up to
speak at the Visitor's Forum.

Gather around, Beach resi-
dents, and listen up. If you al-
ready know how we were able to
get one elected member on the
previously all-appointed Board of
the Santa Rosa Island Authority
you may be excused. Just move
on to Page Four. This is for the
rest of you.
A governing board, com-
posed of five appointed members
and one elected member appears
to be a rather bizarre configura-
tion. It did not get that way like
Topsy, who just grew. It was cre-
ated by design and the good spir-
its of the 1983 State Legislature.
Beach residents and busi-
nesses have always been trying
to find way to acquire a more rep-
resentative form of government.
Attempts to incorporate have
failed because of little unforseen
legal glitches, so here we are with
five chosen and one elected. Now,
we have to journey back to 1947
when the original charter for
Santa Rosa Island was created by
the Florida Legislature. The
charter spelled out the authority
and duties of SRIA board mem-
bers, all to be appointed by the
five county commissioners.
So, in the Fall of 1982, the
Pensacola Beach Business As-
sociation decided to request the
addition of an elected member
to the Board. As president of
the organization which is now
the Chamber, I presented the
PBBA request to the Northwest
Florida Legislative Delegation.
For some reason, no Beach
residents showed up at the Del-
egation meeting. I was pretty
apprehensive about the role I
was playing. I remember that
there were lots of speakers in


on the Beach


attendance. I waited while about
twenty fishermen, dressed in foul
weather gear, stepped to the mike
to protest some kind of fishing
regulation. By the time they
called on me, I was a little sweat
ball, but I pulled my clammy self
together and made the presenta-
tion.
At the end of the meeting, I
was overjoyed when I realized
that the PBBA request had made
its way through the first level,
thanks to the interest and sup-
port of the late Grover Robinson,
III, state representative.
The next step in the proce-
dure was the Delegation's pro
and con meeting with speakers
supporting or protesting the re-
quests which had survived. (The
fishermen were still there.) This
time, Fred Simmons, Beach resi-
dent and business owner, went
with me to the meeting. The
SRIA, who had found out about
our request sent their attorney to
speak against the concept. Now,
there were three Beach people at
the meeting hall. Two for and one
against, but I didn't care. At least,
I felt more secure.
The attorney had no idea
what I was going to say to the
Delegation, so he just made it
clear that the SRIA opposed the
request. After he spoke, I re-
peated the original presentation.
Fred made a short speech, out-
lining the need for local repre-
sentation on the Board, and we
left. Once again, with Grover
leading the way, our request was
approved. Eventually, Grover
began the process which would
result in the request becoming a
bill before the state legislature.
In the meantime, the Au-

thority received their attorney's
report and they immediately
summoned Grover and me to
come to the office. The full board
and general manager were there
waiting for us. They were angry,
upset, hostile, and demanded that
Grover kill the bill.
He told them he could not
do that since it was already in the
hopper in preparation for intro-
duction in the House of Repre-
sentatives.
So, with as little fanfare as
that, that amendment to the SRIA
Charter, passed both houses. The
election of a Beach resident had
become a reality.
The first campaign in the
Fall of 1983, drew incredible
Beach attention. Six candidates
threw their hats in the ring -
McGuire Martin, Dr. James P.
Morgan, Emily Baird, Doug
Foote, T.T. Lowery, and Larry
Judge.
As the race progressed it
soon became obvious that the
front runners would be McGuire
and Jim Morgan. They came
right down to the wire, head to
head, and at the General Elec-
tion on November 1, 1983,
McGuire emerged as the winner
by 14 votes. McGuire then served
four terms, unopposed, followed
by Michael O'Donovan, George
Eckes, Dr. Andy Gygi, Scott
Amberson and Dr. Tom

Campanella.
Over the years, the hybrid
board has functioned well. True,
like any governing agency, they
have caught their share of slings
and arrows, but, especially in re-
cent years, Authority members
have listened to Beach residents,
and have tried to make decisions
which have addressed their con-
cerns. Not everybody agrees with
that assessment, but I don't know

NASTY JOHN BAGS
VOODOO
Nasty John, the Magic Man,
has introduced the VooDoo Bag
to hurricane shy residents and
businesses on Pensacola Beach.
John says to hang the bag in your
house or place of business, and
the hurricanes will stay away
from our shores. Already, the
charm has weakened TS Chris
and caused a slow down of hur-
ricane predictions. Be sure to say
nice things to your VooDoo bag
every day.

NEW SKIPPERS IN PORT
The Pensacola Beach Yacht
Club welcomed new members
from three states last month.
Newcomers are Bessie Randolph,
Pensacola Beach; Alexander
Cooke and Anie Llewellyn,
Pensacola; Will Holmes, Milton;
John McCulley, Tuscaloosa, Ala-
bama; and Elise Holston, Louis-
ville, Kentucky.

OH HAPPY DAY
Birthday girls are every-
where on the Beach. How do they
celebrate? As much as possible.
Linda Terry took her party to the
Olive Drop in July. Barbara Fail
zoomed through the water on her
new waverunner, a gift from her
husband, Gibby on July 29. The
Visitor's Information Center sang
Happy Birthday to co-workers
Linda Matthews on July 28 and
Jean Curtis in the second week
of August.

CONDOLENCES TO JOHN
PINZINO
Beach friends of John
Pinzino were saddened to hear of
the death of his mother, Dorothy
Pinzino Fleming in Spanish Fort,
Alabama on July 28. John's mom
was an avid sailor and had sailed
with her husband from Boston to
Lillian, Alabama where they re-
sided. She was 92-years-old.

WEDDED BLISS
Sharon and Kenny Mattair
spent their twentieth wedding
anniversary on a week long
cruise from a Puerto Rican port.
Rick and Marta Ray chalked up
thirty-five years on their anniver-
sary day, July 29. They celebrated

BEACH PIONEER
CELEBRATES 90
Annie Matsasos who lives in
Villa Sabine is celebrating two
landmarks in 2006. This year
marks her fortieth anniversary as
a resident on Pensacola Beach
and August first is her ninetieth
birthday. Annie was the owner of
the long gone, but much cel-
ebrated, Outrigger Restaurant.

SUNSET IN PARADISE
Eddie and Mary Williams
and Barry and Kathy Long en-
joyed last Saturday night's sun-
set at the Paradise Bar and Grill,
and the big topic of their conver-
sation was the perfect wedding
of Lauren Williams to Isaac
Newlin who were married at Our
Lady of Assumption Catholic
Mission on June 2.

EUROPE'S NICE BUT THE
BEACH IS HOME
David "Bones" Alexander
and his fiancee Elodie Cardin
have returned from a two week
European vacation. Like all trav-
ellers, they had a great time, but
really just couldn't wait to get
back home on the Beach.

NAUGAS
GET ALL MIXED UP
The Beach's most mysteri-
ous little creatures, the Naugas,
who stay underground except for
one day during Mardi Gras were
sighted peeking out of their hide-
aways recently.
"They thought they heard
parade music," said Gwen
Gibson, Nauga Queen II.
She quickly called an emer-
gency meeting with Carrie
Monaghan, Nauga Queen XIII.
They met under a bar stool at The
Islander Lounge, and created a
plan to send the Naugas back
underground until next January.

FUN AFTER RUN
Anita Remesch finished the
Capt'n Fun Run at 8:15 a.m. and
discovered that a cold beer could
be her reward. Debating whether
or not to accept the refreshment
so early in the morning, she took
it, citing a sore hip as a need for


I


such medical treatment as Miller
Lite.

WORLD CHAMPIONS
Longtime Beach resident,
Nettie McCulley likes to tell sto-
ries about the Ripple family in
Baton Rouge. Nettie's neice, Jan
Ripple, was at one time ranked
fifth in the world in Women's
Triathlon competition, and now
Nettie's grandneices, Jan's
daughters, are following in
Mom's footsteps. Shelly Ripple
Johnston just set a work record
in the 100 meter butterfly at the
FINA World Masters Champion-
ships in Stanford, California.
Younger sister Katie, anLSU stu-
dent, has qualified to compete in
the Triahtlon in the World Uni-
versity Games in Lausanne, Swit-
zerland, August 29. Nettie,
whose late husband, Pete, was an
NFL coach is justifiably proud of
her world class family.

Good Things Happen When The Bananimals Run Free


Mardi Gras is months
away, but members of the
Krewe of Bananimals continue
to open their zoo and their
hearts at regular monthly meet-
ings. During their most recent
conclave at The Islander
Lounge on August 6, they re-
sponded to a plea made by
Mary Jo Tibbits on behalf of the
"Lunch Bunch" for financial
help for a six-year-old girl,
abandoned by her parents. The
ladies of the Lunch Bunch had
already outfitted the child with
school clothes. It didn't take
long for the ever generous
Bananimals to fill President
Artie Davis' hat with funds to
help take care of the little girl.
"Lunch Bunchers Shelby
Smith, Kay Amberson and
Mollie Thibodeaux shopped for
the clothes," said Mary Jo. "With
these additional donations we
can start a fund to help her with
future needs."
The partying Bananimals
offer ongoing support to the chil-
dren in protective custody
through donations to Children's
Services Center and the Santa
Rosa Kids House. Krewe mem-


bers Karen Cook Cowen and
Angela Moore are Santa Rosa
Kids' House Board members.
"When the Lunch Bunch la-


dies ask for a donation, we pass
the hat to help the kids," said
Artie Davis, Bananimals' top ba-
nana.


Bananimals Queen Dawn
Moore, and her husband, Steve
announced that they were mov-
ing to North Carolina, but they
will retain their krewe member-
ship. Queen Dawn is scheduled
to reign over the Krewe Ball
January 27 and ride in the pa-
rade February 18.
New members Sara
Clements and Ronnie Carr
were welcomed, and current


members Nancy and Bubba
Born were introduced.
After the business meeting
the Bananimals made their way
to The Islander's Cypress Bar
to attend to the serious agenda
items like eating pizza, having
a beer, and discussing off the
record motions. They will
stampede back next month,
doing good deeds and spread-
ing cheer.

Have you ever had a day
where you started so far behind,
that you couldn't even find your
front? Well, I've been there,
many times. I just stop, read a
book for 20 minutes and forget
about everything. It works for
me...well sometimes.
My Pensacola Beach neigh-
bors, Pam and Tony Scott's house
is progressing very nicely. I am
so glad for them. It's been a long,
hard ride. So far, so good this
season. Keep praying, crossing
your fingers, shaking chicken
bones, or call upon Queen
Shugah Paulette Provost, or
whatever works for you.
I have been invited to the
Social Committee Meeting at, of
course, Queen Shugah's. I'm
going to meet Minnie, Elaine
Mitchell's cousin, for the first
time. I'm looking forward to it.
I also get to visit with Courtney
Winstead, Charlotte Spencer,
Deb Friedman, Peggy, Elaine
Mitchell and whoever else stops
by. You never know at the
Queen's, but it's always fun. I had
an opportunity to visit Deb
Friedman's new townhouse. It is
very beautiful, and it's so won-
derful for her to be able to un-
pack and enjoy her "treasures"
again.
So, all the little children are
back to school and Bill and I have
a little breathing space and rest
time. This is where I close my
eyes and continue to worry about
everything house, money, and
the state of the world. I'm a wor-
rier, but that's my job and I do it
well. Of course, I'm also required
to do a lot of other things, which
are too tedious to even mention.
It's when you worry too much
that it's time to do what my
mother always said, "Straighten
up your back bone and do what
needs to be done!"

She had a lot of sayings,
99percent of them were true.

Not to mention, I've been told
that nobody ever actually cooks
my recipes anyway. Some people
even ask, "There's a recipe
there?" Sorry, but you do have
to do a little cooking with this
recipe, but it's served cold and is
a very refreshing dessert. It's a
Florida "native" recipe and
should be made with Florida or-
anges, if possible. Okay, every-
body, I'm headed to the
kitchen... alone.

Florida Orange Meringue Pie

1 cup orange juice
1 cup chopped orange sections
2 tbsp. Grated orange rind
1 cup sugar
5 tbsp. Cornstarch
3 eggs, separated (saving yolks
& whites)
2 tbsp. Butter
2 tbsp. Lemon juice
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 pie shell, baked

Combine first 5 ingredients
in a saucepan. Cook over me-
dium heat, stirring, until mixture
bubbles and clears. Add 3 beaten
egg yolks to mixture, beating
constantly. Cook an additional
5 minutes over low heat, stirring
constantly. Blend in butter and
lemonjuice. Pour hot filling into
hot baked crust. Beat 3 egg
whites until stiff. Blend in 2 tbsp.
Sugar and spread meringue on
pie. Bake in 350 oven until
lightly browned. (Make sure you
spread meringue completely to
edges of pie crust in order to seal
it and avoid those little water
spots.) Cool completely before
cutting.
Enjoy and maybe I'll see
somebody in the kitchen....


My friend Bob Blomefield
was one of the most opinionated,
grumpy men I have ever known
and I loved him. Bob and I
worked together at Capt. Jack's
Seafood Shack where I was his
boss and then at The Dunes Ho-
tel Caf6, where he was my boss.
He was one of the smartest
people I have ever met. He used
to drive me crazy asking me chal-
lenging questions or telling me
jokes (when I was not willing to
listen) at 5 a.m. when we were
getting ready to serve breakfast
to the hotel guests.
I discovered one morning
when he was eloquently telling
me a story about his life, he
graduated from college the same
year I was born.....1950-some-
thing. I never let him forget that.
Bob was a photographer in
the Navy. He was a member of
the American Legion Post on
Pensacola Beach.
Bob graduated from Tulane
University and practiced law in
Louisiana until he found
Pensacola Beach.
He will always be remem-
bered as a blood donor. He firmly
believed in giving part of his soul
to help another soul live.
Bob was a member of the
Krewe of Wrecks. He and his late
wife, Barbara served as Ship
Officer's.

BUBBLY PERSONALITY


Bob Blomefield


None of us can forget he al-
ways cooked Red Beans and
Rice, served with Bob's Spe-
cial Salad for the Krewe of
Wrecks Halloween Mardi Gras
annual kick-off party at Bobby
D's.
He was a wonderful cook.
His last place of employment
was Gulf Breeze Hospital
where he was a chef.
My friend Bob Blomefield
is with his beloved Barbara.
That is where he wants to be.
Bob Blomefield loved life,
his family and his friends. My
heart grieves for him and I will
miss him. May God rest his
soul and give him Peace.

Grocery Shopping "Island Style" OPEN DAILY


Depending on how they are made, spar-
kling wines fall into one of two general
categories. Methode Champenoise, the
traditional Champagne method, is a
unique process in which the wine's fine
bubbles are produced by a secondary
fermentation that takes place in the
bottle, after yeast and sugar are added
to the wines. This creates alcohol, car-
bon dioxide (bubbles), and sediment
(that is later removed through
disgorgement). The Charmat, or "bulk
method," involves a secondary fermen-
tation that takes place in a large tank.
After the wine achieves the desired car-
bonation and flavor, it is filtered and
bottled under pressure to retain its
bubbles. While the Charmat method is
far less costly than Methode
Champeniose, it is also considered lower
in quality.

HINT: The grapes typically used in spar-
kling wines are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir,
Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Gris.

At BEACH WINES & LIQUORS, INC.,
we carry an expansive selection of
wines, including sparkling wines. If you
need a quality sparkling wine, whether
made by the Charmat method or
Methode Champenoise, we can help you
choose the perfect bottle. We are wine
experts. Questions? Call 850-932-8850.

The Cactus Moth looks innocent enough, but not so, reports Nathan
Herrick and Lawton Smith, researchers with the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture. The pests are destroying the cacti population on Pensacola Beach.
Since 2002, the USDA has placed 70 traps on the Island. Nathan and Lawton
are checking and recording results of a Cactus Moth trap on Fort Pickens
Road near PegLeg Pete's. The moths who made their way to the United
States from Argentina are unwanted visitors. More information is available

I live in a housing devel-
opment in which the covenants
state that all houses should sub-
mit to a particular standard.
That means the outside must be
a certain color, the roof must
follow a code, the windows and
any deviation in the structure
of the house must be approved
by an appropriate committee.
The shrubs, flowers, etc., are
each owner's responsibility and
there is great diversity. I like
that because it maintains a con-
stancy that keeps our houses in
good repair and gives a sense
of unity and continuity.
On the beach, there are re-
strictions in the core area that
must be adhered to, for ex-
ample, all signs must have a
gray background and lettering
must be raised letters. That
maintains a common look and


avoids what could be unsightly
signage. I like that.
Moving out into the resi-
dential area, there is greater
flexibility. It is amusing to see
the variety of mail boxes.
Some are in the shape of fish,
others cars, boats, whatever the
imagination can come up with.
I like that, too, for it gives the
owner an option for self-ex-
pression.
That seems to be the way
things are. In some areas of life,
we are free to make choices, but
then must follow guidelines de-
signed for everyone; in other ar-
eas, we are free to be as creative
as we can. What some may find
as freedom, others may see as
loss of freedom. What makes ev-
erything work is the willingness
to accept the restrictions or free-
dom and act responsibly.

This last week we said
goodbye to my old friend Steve
Robbins who died from a heart
attack. Steve was a true friend, a
great surfer and dad.
You see, as surfers we treat
the passing of one of our own as
a celebration of sorts.
We have a traditional Ha-
waiian paddle out, we gather at
the pier, form a huge circle in the
water,and spread the ashes of
our brothers and sisters back
into the ocean. It's the most
honorable and classic way to
remember our
friends.
In the last few
years we have lost
several surfers Matt
Martin, Scott .
Callicotte, Rick
Settilmire and now
Steve Robbins. Ste
I must say this, I
am very proud of my
surfing family, and that's what
it is, a huge family.
We laugh, cry and surf to-
gether all our lives, forming a
bond for life, and when one of
us passes, we all show our love
and support to friends and fam-
ily by gathering together as
one. It's not a day of mourning,
but a day of joy, as we remem-
ber our fallen surfers.

All of us want to be sent
back to the sea where we came
from. To a surfer, the sea is our
home. It's our playground and
our place of worship.
Now when I'm out in the
ocean, I am surrounded by the
energy of my old friends, right
there in the waves. They are
there, looking out for us. It's
quite a comforting feeling.
The ashes of my dog, Haole, are
there, so all my friends have a
cool dog to play with.
This is what the art of surf-
ing is about. It
is about Honor.
We, as
surfers, are the
Sluckiest people
on the planet.
We belong to a
huge move-
e Robbins ment of soul.
Steve
Robbins loved
the water, and surfed for over 30
years. We will all miss his laugh-
ter and great attitude in the wa-
ter.
So....to my friend Steve
Robbins, we love and miss you.
Please tell all of our friends and
my dog, Haole, that we miss
them.
Oh,and send us some waves.
Aloha my friend!

Every once in awhile, I think
about running away and living
the life of an ex-pat in some for-
eign country that I could adopt
as home. I canjust see myself liv-
ing the good life in Italy, sport-
ing around on my Vespa motor
scooter and spending no more
than 21 hours a week on house-
hold chores excluding cooking
and without the help of Procter
& Gamble products. Okay, so
maybe not Italy.
Maybe I could move to
France. I hear the wine is good.
The bread is fresh and the cheese
is magnifique. Do you think ev-
eryone would accommodate me
and speak English? After all, it's
really the only language I speak
and read; and I would have to get
a driver's license, fill out health
forms and enroll my son in
school. Do you think my son
would be put in a class for French
as a second language students?
Okay, so maybe not France.
I could move to Mexico. I
even have the house picked out.
Oh yeah, foreigners owning real
estate in certain areas of Mexico
is, shall I say, subject to govern-
mental approval. And then there
is the whole who-really-won-the-
last-presidential-election issue.
Too many reminders of "Hang-
ing Carlitos." Take Mexico off
the list.
I got it. I could move to
South Korea. I know three
phrases in Korean: how much,
hello and thank you. A few years
ago, that was all I needed to know
to manage my way around the
seven story fabric market. That
and a purse full of yen. Then

again, their northern neighbors
aren't too stable. Pass on South
Korea.
Let's see, how about some-
where in South America? Too
many bad memories of being de-
tained at gun point at the inter-
national airport in Columbia.
Any place on the continent
of Africa? One-hundred degree
temperatures with drought con-
ditions, ethnic feuds and AIDS
epidemics don't really excite me
either.
I know, Saudi Arabia. I
wouldn't have to drive. I like
scarves. I like to eat dates and
hearts of palm. I am just not sure
I could master walking a few
steps behind my husband. He
saunters. I walk with a purpose.
No Saudi Arabia. No Middle East
Maybe I could move some-
where in Australia. The Ameri-
can dollar is still a little bit stron-
ger than the Australian dollar.
English is spoken. Oh yeah, I
remember meeting some women
whose husbands were in the
Royal Australian Air Force. One
of their biggest shocks in mov-
ing to America, and this was to
rural southern Maryland at that,
was that everyone had a clothes
dryer. Line drying jeans just
might be a little much for this
Betty.
Hmmm, I am beginning to
think as frustrated as I get with
America, her government and
the short comings of my imme-
diate environment, ex-pat status
is really not for me. There is no
place like home. Until next
time...
Luv,
Lizzard

The Wondrous Life Of A Construction Worker Wife


Well I got that, "gotta rip a
wall out feeling," and decided to
renovate our walk-in closet. Now
even calling it a walk-in closet is
being kind. It was more like a
pitiful blotched thrown together
room with brown paneling and
ceiling tiles which had a very bad
smell.
I discovered as I ripped out
one wall of paneling that the
original clapboard was in tact
behind it. I also found a window
that had been sealed up. And if
those hidden treasures weren't
enough, it turns out that this was
part of the original wrap around
porch for the upstairs. Ripping
out the ceiling tiles proved inter-
esting. No insulation unless you
count the multitude of dead
roaches and roach "parts" that lay
on the inside.
So now it was time to work
with my husband. Ralph and I
had to seal up openings, put in
insulation, and sheet-rock the
ceiling. Putting up sheet rock
over my head is not my idea of a
good time. At one point it took


us three attempts to get one piece
screwed in. The screws kept fall-
ing from the drill. Finally Ralph
stuck them in the insulation.
Great idea easy to grab, fast to
screw. Of course, if you are the
one holding the sheet rock over-
head, not fast enough.
Ralph commented, "Your
work-outs are paying off."
I said, "I am not working
out to hang sheet rock."
Two things that did give me
comfort though in this venture
were, you guessed it, my favor-
ites, my trusty hammer and crow-
bar. The three of us are old
friends and have a lot of mortar,
lathe strips and sheet-rock behind
us, literally! The other things that
I like about my hammer and
crow-bar are they don't comment
on my work-outs nor do they take
tools to the black hole in the ga-
rage where they disappear for an
unspecified amount of time.
So here's to all the female
do-it-yourselfers. Keep working
out and hide your tools from your
husband.
