And the beat goes on,,,,,,,

It happened again. We lost yet another good friend.
This time is was a terrible accident.
Some friends were drinking in a boat at a marina when for reasons I don't know, two of them, cousins and best friends, began playing with their 9mm pistols. Apparently, they were joking around and pointing them at each other when one went off.
And as a result we lost Vance Cabral.
He was shot in the head and died instantly.
Vance was a very well liked 45yr old Belizean who was a dive guide among other things.He had a way with the ladies, at least it looked like it to me, loved to party and just loved life in general.
I feel really bad for the cousin who not only has to live his life knowing he killed his best friend and cousin, but he has to deal with the cops as well and they may press some charges with him.
I think it could be manslaughter? I don't know but it is just a terrible incident all together.

Allyson Smith

The last few years, we have lost allot of good friends. With a regularity that has been way too frequent, one of our friends dies.
Last week, maybe a day or so more, we lost another good friend.
Anyone who lived in this area, and many who had just visited or passed thru, knew Ally.
She was a presence larger than anything. If there was a party going on, she was there, smiling and no doubt dancing, usually on the bar top!
She had something wrong with her insides, can’t remember exactly what it was but she was at the bar when things went wrong. She was taken to the hospital and died shortly.
She is missed and know that she left a huge imprint with anyone who met her.

R.I.P. Ally,,,,,

What would Mental Breach be without Mango's?

I guess it would make sense to accompany a post about Mango’s new updates with some photos right?
So here ya go.

All new thatch, including the roof, inside roof areas like over the bathrooms, new seating for 10 upstairs, new parking system, my new bike rack, all with lights, 2 new thatch palapas on the beach which will soon be finished with bench’s and bars under them.

The ‘nipple’ covers on the top are a bit questionable tho

Needless to say I have spent some time in a few bars, had my fair share of favorites too. Some dives off Navy base’s in Asia. But I have the most time in this bar. I have been drinking in this one since the day it was built, 16 years ago. Mostly in the exact same stool!
The place has seen it’s ups and downs and one dark era when it was run by a guy named Roel, it was bad.
But this is the most successful the place has ever been!
So make sure you visit, try the stuffed Jalapenos!

Jamie Lee visits Mango's

Ok, made it back from Mango’s. the place looks great! All new thatch on the roof, entryway, inside over the heads, new pizza oven, tables upstairs, and a new expanded outside deck is queued up and ready.
Frank is serious! He is even going to deliver pizzas fer fucksakes.
I ordered a bike rack but so far, no rack. Maybe soon tho.
The new entrance is real nice, and if I fall down I don’t think mi will break anything on the landing.

So I mentioned I got a haircut whilst in Denver.
It had been brewing for quite a while and one trip to ‘Griga, Mrs. Barn got dropped off at the beauty shop. She was armed with a photo of Jamie Lee Curtis, who we all know is a hot MILF babe.
She hands over the photo and tells them that is the haircut she wants. (Apparently, lots of women take sample photos to the hair shop?)
She came out with the Jamie Lee alright. Along with a tub of the infamous GORILLA SNOT!
I thought it was pure legend, but here it is, the real deal. She don’t use it but I might find a use for a smear out in the shop, who knows. Maybe lube some wheel bearings?
Anyway, turns out I got a Jamie Lee too! I swear we both got the same hair-doo. But I didn’t have a photo. And it has been 2 months now and I feel like a fuckin hippie so we are off to ‘Griga to get trimmed back.

I got a new light modifier. A beauty dish! It is a real nice, compact unit that fits right on the flash head.
Now if someone can send me a beauty,,,,,

I also went to the dentist not long ago. Wanna see inside my yapper?

And is this represenitive of the cops these days up there? All I hear of stories of abusive cops. Maybe the good stories don’t make good news?

Don’t take advice from me.
You’ll only end up drunk.

Here we go again,,,,,

Where in the phuck have I been?
Well, that’s a good question. I have not been anywhere really, just sorta lost interest in the blog for a bit. Nothing very exciting going on and that can make it hard to dream up shit, but here we go again.
I made a few trips to Denver to check on big momma.
Her dementia is getting worse all the time. And with her failing health, I guess you could say she is ‘circling the drain’.
Her she is modeling my new helmet.
Last trip to Denver I cut off all my hair!
Yep, should have done it years ago. Too bad I had just that day bought a big bottle of shampoo!
I swear I’m 10 lbs lighter.

My favorite bar just got a face lift!
Mango’s got all new thatch, new stairs, new parking facility, and tonight I will see what is new inside.
I have been staying home the last 3 weeks as they were closed so yea, I’m phuckin ready for a night out!
Maybe gather up some gossip?

Our business is for sale, did I mention that? Some bites but nothing worth mentioning. We are in for the long haul, we don’t hate what we do so if it takes a while to sell, we’re OK.
We are going to build casa del Barnacle across the road and move in there while turning our house into the third rental it was originally planned to be, and we will manage the 3 rentals from over there.
Plan seems to change with every case of whiskey.

Put a new seat on my bike. A Brooks B-17.
Hand made leather from the UK, this same model has been made since 1860! That’s when they patented it. I thought it was pretty cool, and I read it is the Rolls Royce of seats(once you break it in).

I remember seeing a can or Mark Remover the custodians would use to get the black scuff marks off the school floors. We had a can we would use to spray on our foreman who was named Mark.
Now it seems WD-40 has jumped on the ‘Spray Mark’ band wagon as well.

Sitting here the other night and the dog starts growling. What the phuck! I go out and find this dude in the tree right next to our deck!
It’s a Mexican porcupine.
Who knew they climbed trees?

OK,, I’ll report any and all gossip I squeeze outa Mangos tonight!
