Back the back way to the Days Inn. 

Oh and my friend sent me a funny article yesterday.

Appease Sky God? Airline Sacrifices Goats

KATHMANDU (Sept. 4) – Officials at Nepal’s state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.

Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks due to the problem.

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft Sunday at Nepal’s only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.

“The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights,” said Raju K.C., a senior airline official, without explaining what the problem had been.

Local media last week blamed the company’s woes on an electrical fault. The carrier runs international flights to five cities in Asia.

It is common in Nepal to sacrifice animals like goats and buffaloes to appease different Hindu deities. 

I decided to save my goat:

 Got up and packed my bag. Went downstairs for the breakfast. Nick and Jamie came down. I then headed down to Fairhaven to the job.  Nick showed up in a wee bit. Lon followed later. We got going and put back the North side and all the lower courtyard on he East. I was happy with the work done. I was not as happy with my help but then maybe I expect too much from my coworkers. I fucked off the job after 2 pm. Said bye bye to the town of Dan Harris.

Got to the job and we started working on the roof. Got it all back together up there. The Mallet showed up with the main bulk of supplies on the new truck. 
Mallet and I headed over to “Skylarks” for lunch. 
Back to work and started unloading the truck. The fellows showed up and we got a human chain and stocked the siding on the scaffolding. Put all the other supplies around the job. Then loaded up Mallet with the garbage to date. Off he goes. We start on the West side of the building and put all the paper and some of the trim on. Finish up later than usual to get to a good finishing point.

The waitress starts me off with a bean and cheese nacho plate. Been a spud farmer from Ireland I get the “Idaho Burrito” Then I head over to their chip and salsa bar and stock up.
My burrito is good. Down it goes and the good waitress comes along with a nice dessert.
This is a well run restaurant. I would recommend it to all.

Back to 307 and now I will either pack or relax.

Up early. On goes the tea. I watch the movie “Snakes On A Plane” on HBO.

Well since it was on at 4am I decided to watch it through. I think it may have been a bad move for Samuel Jacksons career. Good enough movie to mock a killer B.

Met the gang downstairs at 7:30. We chatted for a bit. Met Lon’s Tracey. Nicks Jamie was there too. Off to the Fairhaven we go.

Worked like mad until lunch. Today I went up to the other Haggen foods for lunch. Ate lunch with there Valerie and Brice. 
Back to work and worked long beyond the usual finishing time so we could get all the openings done. Finished up the day and headed back to the hotel. I was beat down from the heat all day. Today was long and hot. Speaking about long and hot I spent a few minutes looking at two bees in a mating ritual on the window. I think I have been away from the good woman too long.
Now I will rest up for a bit.
