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!

The coolest bicycle I have ever owned!

Things are a changing.
Take a look at what showed up at my house a couple days ago.
We have been trying out various shipping firms to see if we can find one we like over the others.
This company, Easy Shipping Belize brought me this.
It was bought in Florida where the shipper actually went and picked it up!
And about 2 weeks later viola, here it is.
It is a Giant Sedona bike. Why it came in a Specialized box is a mystery.
But here it is.

Some assembly required.

But for me that is a bunch of fun. I get to go over every bolt, nut, and screw for tightness and lube or locktite the ones I think need it, and for me that is a good time, weird huh?

And here she is all set and ready to ride.

I took it for a few rides before it dawned on me that maybe the tire pressure was not quite right.
I checked and they were both 20lbs shy! Am not used to having 55psi in my bike tires.
This sumbitch is one smooth, comfy ride!
As you can see, I pimped it out with fenders, rack, lights, bell, and mirror.
Have a computer coming soon for MPH and distance. Seems you can get them for 20 bucks, so why not?
I want/need to get some exorcize and this seems like the most enjoyable way I can think of. Already have sweated up a few sets of clothes!

Still have one more shipper to weigh in, but they are bogged down with all this Easter (zombie Jesus) crap, so I won’t see my next cast iron skillet till next week.
Then we can decide which of these shippers works best for us.
Off to ride!!!

With enough butter you can get insurance!

Well, there have been so happenings as of late.
Che'z barnacle had to replace the cooker in the kitchen.
The oven door froze and I had to take the thing apart to try to loosen the hinges up. In doing so, I had the side panels off and discovered what they used for insulation. One sheet of tin foil! That's it,, nothing else. VIVA LA MEXICO!
So, I decided to sell it and get a new cooker, one made in China fer fucks sakes.
So here is what you get for your hard earned 200us dollars.
Works well enough,, but I am very excited to hear that we are going to have a nice kitchen in the new house! (coming soon)

And look waht was gifted to me the other day. More cast iron stuff.
This is a mold for corn bread, or whatever. Kinda hard to see the dimensions but you get the idea.
And from the logo on the back, we know this piece was made in the 1920's which is very cool!
Some corn bread ears will soon follow.

And what do you smear on corn bread? Why butter of course. Think there is enough in this can to last me quite some time!

So,, we/I have been trying to get us some of that Obamacare everyone is talking about and it has been very hard to do from this country. Guess what, I had to do some lying. Even had to hide my IP address before they would even talk to me!
First thing I notice with the 'Affordable care Act' is that it is not affordable. I had to submit a form to try to get a financial break as we do not make much money. I submitted the form and we waited over 45 days for a response, I assume this was while the check our income tax forms to see if we are really not making enough of an income.
Then a couple days ago, BINGO, we were both accepted for Medicaid!
I don't know how in the fuck this works as I have been trying for a year to get my mom qualified, and I get it in a few weeks?
I have not looked into it yet but I assume I am on type "B' and such would not be eligible for an assisted living place like she is in, but whatever,, we got move coverage than we had last month!
Strange times my friends,, strange times,,,
