Son is doing well. Its not Dengue so that's a big relief.
The trailer I built last week is loaded with about 1600 pounds of copra. We are off to the copra mill in Dumaguete to sell it. Current prices are rock bottom but it will go rancid if we store it too long. The drive takes us to about 4000 feet over a mountain range then along the coast between the islands of negros and cebu. Its large whale season so we may see some big guys migrating through the straight. We will overnight in Dumaguete and I will try and extend my visa. I left my only long trousers in Bacolod so they may turn me away.
The ride over the mountain with the new trailer went well. Copra mill closes for lunch. Let's hope for a good price. Pizza, burgers and a cold beer for lunch. Its time for some western food.
Hopefully you got a good price
Copra prices are aweful. We got 16 pesos per kilo. That's 25% of this time 2 years ago. The joys of farming.

the wind picked up and this tree was perilously close to the workers house so a guy climbed top with rope in had. He tied the rope to the crown of the 80 foot tree then trimmed it to make it less vulnerable to gusts of winds. We insist Bernie uses a harness to harvest coconuts - this guy scampered up and around the crown then back down in ten minutes. The rope was to guide the tree.
