Saturday evening, our house cleaner, Maricela showed up at the gate and handed me a neatly folded, hand printed note shown above. (Note the trimmed edge using Pinking shears – which Nancy had a fit about because “you should never cut paper with Pinking shears, it makes them dull…”
I read it while they looked on and confirmed my understanding that there was a meeting for all the users of water from the Guacimo tank. It was to be Sunday morning at 9 am at the salon next to the church in Guacimo.
In a nutshell, Maricela said “new tank, more money…”
Hernan and Rafael are the water guys for Guacimo. When something needs to be done, either Hernan or Rafael (or both) get it done – usually do it themselves.
We noticed they had been working hard in the area around the water tank that supplies the area. Aside from giving the tank a fresh coat of paint, they put up a chain link fence with barbed wire on top to make it more secure.
I’ll gladly pay extra for that.
Especially when they sent such a fancy notice of “reunion.”
