Thank you Jimmy Fallon for inspiring me to write thank you notes. Thank you, dogs, for getting your liquor license; I love your wet slobbery tongue on those warm Costa Rica afternoons. Thank you hammock makers for teaching me the art of swinging… Not that king of swinging… I mean gently side to side, like I’m in a cradle. Thank you you wise old surfer dude at the beach who found and returned the drone I sunk into the ocean the other day. Thank you giant flying grasshoppers for crashing into the wall and acting like nobody saw that. Thank you Toyota for sending all lots of spare parts to Costa Rica so we can keep our cars going on these Nosara roads. Thank you tortilla makers of Costa Rica for giving me something to transport TMs signature Guacamole on. Thank you Wagner for coming up with an endless menu that keeps me delightfully content but still able to fit into my board shorts. Thank you guys on the beach with fresh coconut water, and hacking it open for me with machetes larger then a toddler. Thank you Jack Johnson for making me feel like I’m at TM when it’s -7 degrees out side in Wisconsin. Thank you Latin American Rum Distillers for reminding me that getting old makes you smooth and valuable. Thank you Gallo Pinto for being what ever it is you are……rooster beans? Thank you Cesar for having my Five O ‘Clock somewhere cerveza always iced down and at the ready. Thank you Imperial for making an endless supply of deliciously refreshing beer and delivering it to TM. Thank you howler monkeys for being my morning wake up call and not throwing poop at me this past year. Thank you team Magnifica for being nice enough not to make fun of my EsSpanish.
