16 November. First late letter

16 November. First late letter

IMG_5848_HDRMy beautiful Byron.

Well. I missed our Thursday visit.

First time I missed a letter in three years. I was on an Island researching Monkeys and Sloths. And they had NO INTERNET to allow me to connect my laptop to this page.
I have just arrived back in Florida and checked into a Hotel that has wi fi and here’s my first opportunity to write.

Sorry if you logged on to the page yesterday expecting to see my letter. (Sad face emoji.)

The first picture is Caesar.
He is a 7 yo Capuchin monkey. He lives with his family of 7 in Roatan. An Island of the Honduras. I spent an afternoon with them, interacting and taking photos. They are smart creatures. And very social. Love to play. And they pick pockets. And they steal women’s ear rings.
Amazing. They seem joyful all the time.

IMG_5820_HDRI also met a three toed Sloth called Flash. That’s irony because he sure ain’t no Flash. Sloths  move so slowly its astonishing. They have very small brains and somewhat limited function. But they are super cuddly.

The majority of Sloth deaths in the wild not caused by predators, are caused by them climbing and grabbing onto one arm thinking it is a branch. Then they plummet to their death from the high branches where they live and feed.
That is called black humor. It’s funny in a tragic kind of stupid way.
They sure are cuddly though. And they can rotate their necks all the way round. There is an extra vertebra in there to assist them eat more effectively while hanging from branches by rotating their necks all the way round. Amazing nature.

IMG_5789 copy_HDRWell, I am mortified that I found it impossible to locate an Internet service on Roatan. I have faced some challenges in the past three years when traveling and  getting my letter to Byron sent on time, yet I awlays found a way until now.   But there you go. I will make up a gallery of the pictures I took and post it for you to see soon. So much stuff I would have loved to share with you. Learning is just the best thing and I am sure, like me, you love to learn about things.

I will be back to California in a few days and back to my new album of guitar music. I can’t wait. I wil be in Miami until then and am taking lots of photos to show you.

Sorry you were feeling a bit unwell on Friday. I heard from the school nurse. And I wrote back to her. But I only got the message now, because I had no internet on Friday when she wrote to me. I thanked her for looking after you and for letting me know how you are.

I hope you are feeling well again.
Can’t wait to see you.

Miss you,
Love you,
Daddy
