Jimmy ´three fingers´

Jimmy ´three fingers´

Granada, Nicaragu, april 2nd 2009

I have a hard time finding a hotel in Granada, no place to park my bike properly, or too expensive or just plain unfriendly. I almost decided to got to Managua, it´s still early so I gan get there in daylight, as I see a Harley parked in one of the small streets opposite to a hotel. The girl at the reception assures me of a good parking spot and the room is fine.

In the evening I meet the guy who owns the hotel and Harley. ´Jimmy three fingers´ is an entrepeneur pur sang and I inmediately warm up to him. There are 37 Harley´s in Nicaragua and number 38 and it´s owner are killed a few weeks ago on one of the roundabouts in Managua. Jimmy organises a remembrance evening for the guy, that means I just can´t leave before that date.

At the day of the remembrance the evening is called off due to an upcoming Harley weekend in Guatamala where 8 riders are headed for. So we decide to hit town, with the bikes. Well, it sure turned out to become an unforgettable evening. After a few drinks in one of the best bar´s I´ve seen since Oakland, Zooms bar, we go down to the lake. In the old ´complexo turistico´ it´s quite in the open air discotheque. Jimmy drops me at a table with 5 gorgeous ladies after an introduction and donation of a family size beer bottle. I love it, but honestly I´m tired and with just one drink too much it´s better to go home, I think. ´All right´. Coming from the washroom I notice there´s a fight going on between my table ladies. I manage to get them out of each others hair (amongst other body parts) and walk up to my bike. Jimmy is already out there. Betsy won´t start. One of the spark plug cables turns out to be loose. An easy fix, Betsy starts inmediately and I leave first. At the end of the street I still don´t see Jimmy. Even after counting to 10 he´s still not at my back, so I go back. Upon returning I see Jimmy trying to unknot an even bigger group of ladies who are assembled, fighting, around his bike. I go over, turn my bike and I see out of the corner of my eye one of the ladies crawling under a pile of fighting ladies, running towards me and she just jumps on my back fender. I hit it and this time Jimmy is right behind me. At the end of the street we decide we just can´t leave the girl. So we go to our own place and have some more drinks. It is already light when it is obvious our lady of the night just wants money. Since I took her along, I have to pay which means we manage to get her into a cab and pay the ticket. To Jimmy this whole scene reminds him of a movie in which Martin Sheen declares when he´s interrogated on sexual adventures, ´I paid her to leave´. What a great line to end the evening!

    Hallo Jan Gerben.

    Ik ben blij om weer wat van je te horen. Hier is het ook bijna Pasen. Vandaag is het Palmpasen. Daar zou je denk ik wel wat van zien. Ze rukken palmtaken van de bomen en nemen die mee de kerk in. Dat verteld onze Dominee Klaas Bom. Ze hebben 5 jaar in Nicaeaagua gewoont, hij was daar dominee. De eerste echte gemeente is onze kerk.
    Snik,, snik na 5 jaar gaan ze weg. Hij is per i mei beroepen door Kerk in Actie, om uitgezonden te worden naar Quito, de hoofdstad van Ecador. Hij wil de diensten in mai nog leiden, Pinsterzondag 31 mei, nemen ze afscheid van onze kerk. Klaas, Connie en de kids Febe ,8, Levien, 4 en Zeva bijna 2.
    Ik heb gehoord dat de kerkeraad druk op zoek is naar een opvolger.
    Volgende week, 12 en 13 april is hat Pasen.

    Hier is de lente ook aardig begonen, gisteren was het tussen de 15 en 20 graden. Vandaag iets minder zon.
    Brucie-cat is wel wat rustiger geworden, sinds hij ‘geholpen” is. Maar het slopen van de stoel is nog niet gestopt. Dat doet hij als hij aandacht of eten wil.
    Hij nog maar 9 maanden.
    Ik heb me aangemeeld voor hi5, morgen ga ik er naar kijken.
    Ik galangzaam op bed aan. Morgen vroeg op, de Emmastraat ligy nog steeds open. Ik moet langs de school en dan de 1 potgieterstr in.
    Groetjes vanuit Gouda, Ariena

    Dag dokters.

    Hier is het dinsdagavond , dus koffie cola met lood en een paar sigaren met wat bekenden.
    Waar we allemaal benieuwd naar zijn, is wat er zoal aan kilometers op je fietsteller staat.
    Dus volgende keer graag als het ff kan je kilometers doorgeven.
    Tenminste ik hoop dat het geimproviceerde tellertje het nog doet.
    Jonge, jonge wat een belevenissen weer.
    Ik ben stik (jaloers) op je belevenissen.
    Het ritje van Edgar en mijzelf, vorig jaar naar Moldova en Roemenie valt erbij in het niet.
    Hier is het motorgebeuren bijna weer begonnen.
    mijn beurt vlgs Ton, Jan vertrekt nu na 3x klok kijken, ik moet de motor nog opstarten na pekelstop, eind mei hebben we in Vlist nog een dj nodig kan ik je al in huren?anders vervallen we naar Arij, ok ikkgeef ‘t stokje door aan Ari.
    Wat hebben de heren weer moeite met mijn naam zoals ze zowiezo moeite met mij hebben. Gelukkig kon ik vanavond weer wat aanvullende technische en esthetische adviezen geven wat betreft dat Old school geval. Ik hoop toch dat ik nog een eervolle vermelding krijg in de Big Twin als we allemaal op de foto gaan met dat verzaagde en verslepen stuk ijzer. Jij ontmoet Jimmy threefingers ik moet het hier doen met Tonnie thumb Jantje (hij die niet schrijven kan) Robbie wattobbie en Jasper onze detailtechnicus pur sang, Harry zit in Engeland dus vandaag geen weerbericht en Henkie zoekt nog steeds naar de garantiepapieren van de Suzuki. Afijn het wordt hoog tijd dat je weer een beetje deze kant opkomt want behalvens een verstandige opmerking van mijn kant is alle nuancering ondertussen ver zoek, kortom we missen je jongen.

    Gr Ton,jasper,aris

    when you tell her that you dont want to be with her she gonna have no choice but to udranstend. like most ppl she may think its something she did. tell her its not her its you. you dont want to be in any relationship right now. tell her you will always care for her but right now you dont want to be held down. you want to be single. she not gonna hurt herself and if she did than you really did the right thing by breakin it off with her cause shes not stable. dont worry about the guilt be strong and move on with your life she’ll heal from it eventually and then she’ll move on. good luck!
