Valentine’s Day on Playa Tamarindo




We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout…

                     – Johnny Cash


Yes, we did.


And, there are repercussions for every action that we, or anyone else, undertakes.


Costa Rica Arenol Hans Scott Char 303We got married in a garden setting in Washington state eight months ago, and things have been happening for the better since.


Why would this beautiful woman agree and marry me?  Several people, including many of her relatives, have asked that question.


I do not have any ideas as to why.  I’m not much of an answer guy…I’m more into the questions.  But she did, and that’s that – or, so it would seem.


Now she’s really gone off the deep end, to use a worn metaphor.  She’s been tickled, tricked and teased into moving to what many view as the end of the Western Word.



Now she walks on the beach every day, collecting too many sea shells, and dancing around like she owns the place.  And me…


I hold her belongings and just watch in awe.  Guess things just happen that way sometimes.  I’m O.K. with it, and she is too, so it seems.  Happy Valentine’s Day from Costa Rica ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
