There are things in the world that just make good sense and should always go together to compliment each other;
- Peanut Butter & Jelly
- Vodka Tonic & Lime
- Memphis in May Beale Street Music fest & Rain
- Bette, Shobo and Carbunkle Trumpet vacation together
Sadly number 4 could not happen this year on our trip south of the 18th latitude as our dear friend Ms Bette had to tend to her mother who was recuperating from hip surgery. Needless to say that momma and I were a little bummed as the 3 of us on the island is always a shit show that is a lot of fun. A couple of weeks prior to departure momma and I were having
a vat of wine some fruit juice with dinner, we discussed the idea of taking Ms Bette with us via a Flat Maria. For those of you who are wondering what I am talking about let me let you catch up on these two posts Flat CBT and Flat Chunky don't worry I will wait for you.................
Now can you guess what else is going through that twisted mind of mine besides my ADD medicine. Enough with the words let's get onto the pictures;
Here is Real Maria on one of our first trips to the island
Here is another one and look how
thin good looking I am, I need to get off of the sauce and back into the GYM
Yep those two are plotting and scheming again
I always did wonder why Jet wanted to have a pic with her
Here we go, first class ticket, bottle of water and about to pop a sleeping pill for my trip!
We run into our friends from H-Town that we met a couple years back drinking
Coconut Water at the Tackle Box
Got to have a pic with the Queen
After a full day of traveling, Celi's Spicy Fish fingers will bring one back to life
Got to work on that Brooklyn Tan
Enjoying Sunday Funday and we run into Cindy & Renita from Changes in Latitudes B&B
"Don't worry Bette, I won't overcharge you like I do Didi" says Betty
Even Mary G wanted to get in some Flat Maria action!
DAMN YOU CBT, You have my Fancy NY Arse on a boat? Notice that Leonard is wondering what the Hell is going on here.
We always knew that Ms Bette was happier driving than being a passenger on the high seas
Giovanni even took Ms Bette on a snorkel at Shark Ray
Hey that isn't a chicken that is Gail!
Nothing like a Lime Daiquiri from Captain Morgans to quench one's thirst
Ran into Ken and Mel on the cart ride up north and they told us to swing by Aji's for a beer so we did.
(We can't be rude)
As Ms Bette says, here is the luckiest woman on the island and a good friend of ours
Here we are at Linda's "Shitty Little Bar" having a Stress Captain
You can't not go to Belize w/o watching Cash Cab
Notice number 5 pool rule. Good thing that Gumata Jennie didn't make the trip!
Now she sings back up to Dennis Wolfe and the Usual Suspects too?
Carbunkle Trumpet where in the world are you taking me now?
CRAP dear, I know that wall!
See what happens when you have a lot of ear wax build up? The staff at Pedro's is so nice and helpful
Even Ruthie wanted to help out too!
Good for Wade the Gringo to play along too!
Had to ask Laurie not to post any pics of Flat Maria till I was able to get this blog up, Thanks Taco!
I hope in that flat wallet you have some flat Belize currency because it is about to get ugly!
Going to Pedro's and not having a picture with Peter is like going to Fort Worth, Texas and not riding the bull.
(As we arrive back from a full day of drinking we run into Felipe who whispers into her ear) "Guess what Maria, I am going to take you fishing tomorrow!"
Wait, I am now just getting over the first boat trip and now I am fishing with Felipe (in 3 foot swells I might add?) Damn you CBT and Shobo!
Aww she caught a fish that was bigger than her and much bigger than Benjie's fish too!
It wouldn't be a pic of Flat Maria on a boat w/o her head over the side!
Ran into Trevor at Wayo's bar too!
Poor Chunky had a bad tooth but he played along (even with the drool from a numb mouth)
Look we even ran into the original Meter Maid and First Son - Cesar!
Stopped by Carumba's to say hello to Opie
CBT, how long you planning on keeping this show going?
Thank God, Now I can get back to my trashy book and rest up my liver for Memphis in May Music Fest!
On a side note, we did venture over to Elvi's one night to get a Dirty Banana and sure as I am typing this in my thong, did Alberto walk up to me and say "Hey Buddy, welcome back, where is Maria?" Yep we missed ya Ms Bette and I am so glad that you are 1100 miles away from me because I would hate to get the finger.
