Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag

Last night we went to a lovely birthday party for Chris DeRon, a Dutchman of more charm than is probably legal. A real treasure of a man. He and his wife live way down at the very end of the colonia, just this side of the tortugario sanctuary. They have a wonderful house that is made for parties. Great b-b-q, live music ~ provided by the masseuse Patti and her husband ~ well-stocked bar. Chris is renowned for his grilled ribs and they lived up to their reputation. Many contributions from the 35+ guests; salads, breads, hot dishes, etc. And on the grill, "personed" by two excellent chefettes, ribs and chicken. There was a full contingent of Cuyutl√°n's finest, gringo and Mexican. The first dancers on the floor were Chris and wife Robbie, swaying to "Spanish Eyes." As you can see from the photo above, Chris is a roly pink-cheeked blond. His wife is a tall willowy brunette with dark eyes, raised in Surinam. He told the story of their first meeting: he was working in a hospital (he's an anesthesiologist) and saw her coming down the stairs. As he said, "I saw her and dat vas it!" A fine time was had by all. Including Chris.

sounds like so much fun. Maybe we'll join in next year.
Hey pass this on, it's just a treasure.
Go to Utube and search for Susan Boyle. She'll bring tears to your eyes...:)
