Why Not Us!

Why the title? Click here and see why. Why not us?!

And now a few more photos, hopefully to entertain you.

Seems like a terrible thing to do to a BMW

Where does one begin? With the "Almighty Auto Service Experts"? Or maybe the "Global Auto Film Iasters" (Ed. note: To be fair, when I approached them to tell them the error, one guy said "I know - M") or the logo "PC" which, apparently stands for Cars and People". Aaaahhhh, China...

This is not about the shoes - it is about the outfit. They are wide legged white linen pants with an 8" strip of black cloth attached at the bottom. I saw her go by and waited for her to return and she almost got past me. To say that the black and white and black outfit was not fetching is an understatement.

Okay, so this was a real puzzler to me. On Monday the guys on the right were at the mall carrying their sign ( on the other side, it says "Sorry") around. I could not figure out why. On Tuesday the tent went up. Apparently "Sorry" is the name of the apartment complex. Do these marketing guys ever check out the literal translation before they advertise? Or maybe they meant sorry to the university guys who had to wear these ridiculous outfits to hand out the brochures advertising it.

This very healthy (?) looking sod will thrive when it is laid down on the carefully prepared soil next to it, we're sure.

Well, tomorrow we are off for a three day weekend in Ningbo. (Ed. note: a coastal city famous for its seafood. It is Labour Day holiday – Thursday, Friday and Saturday and then back to work on Sunday, for 6 days straight. Some holiday.) Cheryl and Andy will help us kick off  a month long celebration of Terry’s 60th birthday (the 23rd). We will follow that with a weekend visit to Jiaxing of other Cinec administrators and partners when, I’m sure some kind of celebration and imbibing will occur. Terry and I then wrap it up with a trip to Hong Kong for a few days on the weekend of her actual birthday. Whew, I am exhausted already.

Stay tuned for more stories.

Why wouldn't you wear these to RT Mart for grocery shopping? I had to look twice to see the heels as they blended in so well with the floor.
