Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

MTF won't let me upload the pics atm. I will try again when I have time later.
It was a lovely day. In typical Maine summer fashion we arrived at about 3:30pm after battling traffic that made us keep on the road for an extra 30 minutes.
They were just starting to serve the lobster,chicken,hard boiled eggs, corn and pasta salad as we got there. The hostess had opted to start earlier since there was a threat of a thunderstorm.

Just as we all finished eating, the storm hit and so we all ended up inside for the readings by actors/audio narrators. It was fabulous. The storm lasted about 15 minutes and you know how nature sometimes has this way of helping you out? All the thunder sound effects were perfect for the 2 stories it coincided with. It was very surreal at the time.
We took a break to have blueberry pie made with Maine berries which are very small and very sweet then back into the cottage to continue storytime. By then the sun was out and you'd have never known that we had just had a severe storm. Lovely

Yes, but you probably got it on the big screen

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

I admit it's on the big screen. But after that, I had a replay of last year's final and then, I saw Paulo lose his match. Not that great. At least Stani & Chucho won their matches. I wish I had seen them instead.

Chucho winning was hilarious, he looked even more disinterested than usual and when he won, there was no visible signs of emotion.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

I have a day off but I'm taking the dogs to the osteo for their check up.
Hope to watch Willy's match tonight, but it will be pretty late around here and João is home so it is a big question mark

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

As long as the rain doesn't ruin it, I guess I will, because the match before his is about to start
But the clouds in Canada are very dark...

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

Today I have some hopes they show a bit of Chucho's match, as he's playing Simon. For once that showing Simon will make me satisfied, you gotta notice it!!
