BEAUTIFUL DAY TO VISIT WILLIE “BILLBLACK” CADLE



GROCERY SHOPPING FOR BILL

Couple weeks ago Becky and I set out to visit Willie "Bill black" Cadle off the side of the Crooked Tree Village Road. The morning sun was stunning, perfectly blue skies and beautiful breezes off the Crooked Tree Lagoon. Driving over the causeway, we counted no less than nine long legged Jabirus. The temperature today; high 90's!

A friend of mine in Los Angeles, Sheldon Nicholson, sent me some money to buy groceries for Bill after seeing him pushing his bicycle cart on the Crooked Tree road to grocery shop. Bill wasn't at home so we set off to Orange Walk Town.

What a great day for ladies day! We headed to the hair salon and lunch at a nice restaurant overlooking the river in Orange Walk. After lunch we hopped over to the Orange Walk Farmers Market for some bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes and cilantro, staples for Ms. Becky.

After hair, shopping and lunch, we stopped in to see the Chairman of Carmelita Village, Mr. Randy Jones. Randy is also a tour guide and we had been thinking of going to Lamanai Maya Ruins for a day by boat.

Driving back to Crooked Tree Village, we mostly chatted about the things we like or things we used to do growing up in Crooked Tree Village; friends, clothes, books, plants, etc. It was almost dark when we got back to Bill's neighborhood, but we were lucky this time. 


I must tell you that Bill is an unexpectedly funny man!

WOW! I never saw "Billblack" smile before. He looks amazing! I am his nice or grand niece I am not quite sure but I know that I am related to him. As a child I was always afraid of him. This gives me courage that he will not chase me from his home when I appear at his door step.

You should really go and visit Bill back there in his little corner. He is really a funny and nice person.
