It’s Sunday morning, 3 April and Lita went to church early this morning. Mass starts at 0600 but, even though it’s only like a 2 minute walk from the house, she likes to leave around 0530 so she can sit where she wants to. I guess some seats in there are better than others. She normally goes to church at least once per week, but a minimum of twice per month. This Sunday is the Sunday before our 36th wedding anniversary so I went with her to carry some candles and a bottle of wine. I suppose that is for a special communion to help bless our marriage. She does this every year and , well it’s been 36 years, so maybe it’s working. Or maybe it’s just that I have incredible patience. Titing and Neneng also went to church, it’s Pam’s day off, so I’m home alone. That’s fine with me. I take alone time whenever I can get it. I can hear them at the church so they must be using a loud speaker. I think that loud speaker and a new bell is going to make this an every Sunday thing. I’ll be able to hear what’s going on there, from here. I can’t understand it, but I know it’s going on.
Shortly after they got home from church (about 0710), I smelled something burning. It smelled like something electrical. I checked the computer and just about every fan in the house (we’ve got 6 of them), but it was not any of those. It turned out that Titing had a short circuit on his tricycle out front. The window is open so I could smell it pretty strongly. He was already out there working on it by the time I found out where it was coming from.
The fan man came by today, as per our request. He has 2 fans to fix today. One belongs to Neneng and the other is ours. The fan I use by my side of the bed went out again. It lasted a good 5 months this time before crapping out. Titing is also suppose to be talking to him about putting a fan above the table we have out front. A little constant breeze out there would be nice. The humidity here is terrible. I’d be able to sit outside longer, drinking beer or whatever and it just might help keep a few of the flies away.
I have it on good authority that the Kamalig Event Center will be opening back up. It will be different management and they will just be leasing for now. I suppose if things go well, they will purchase it, but I don’t really know about that part. From what I understand they are going to be trying to keep the same menu the previous management had. It was a very good menu, that’s for sure. They had the only restaurant hamburgers that I could eat around here. Of course I do eat them at home when my wife makes them. I know that I will be one of their customers when they get opened back up. I’ll keep you up to date on things as I find out about them.
Well I’m trying to keep these posts between 500-600 words from now on, so I guess I’ll be closing this one. For the next post I’ll be starting on 4 April and I did something that day that I have never done here in Calbayog before. Stay tuned to see what that is.
