    Default May Beer money.... Gone...

    Well it looks like some of the family (down there) has been hit quite hard by the down turn and the family up here has decided to take up the cause with a Benjamen being sent every month..

    Initially Chilo's brothers (up here) proposed "every one give 20 every month"... Well I think most of you know getting that together every month is like herding cats... So Chilo and Nella skillfully came up with a month for each contribution .. May is our month..

    I apologize for any perceived sobriety in advance..

    The large family here does the same for their mother down there.

    Maybe you can sneak an Old Milwaukee or two, you know; cheap beer, without it being noticed.

    I would suggest that you vote on which meal to cut out, 2 meals a day is more than plenty, especially when beer is involved.

    Other option is to not buy milk and buy Beer instead. Or how about going vegetarian for a month!

    or stick to a nica diet of rice, beans, eggs and beer!

    Make them send back the empties from your $100. Surely you could get a couple six-packs with that!

    You sort of act like you are complaining, but I bet it feels good to help.

    Wow - Ran across this old one..

    So now we go into YEAR 9 of dependency.

    We still have 3 months of the year (down from 4) where we drop a Benjamin down - Jan nor Feb was one of them - But Mach will be.

    I did tell Chilo that once the full time works stops, so will the C note being passed every 3 months. Chilo did not really realize that until I mentioned that - I asked Jokingly if we could ask for a C note from her every few months once we are not working - It was not received well..
