Daddy With Leatherback On Playa La Flor, Nicaragua, Holy Week, 1989

Dear Maria and Danny,

This forgotten photo was just sent me by Ed Myer with whom I spent Holy Week, 1989, in the company of David Stolze and Tori Spellman. 

David and Ed were (and are) American physicians with whom I worked at the Managua Medical School. 

Four years ago, David moved his practice to British Columbia, leaving behind "America's Only Socialist Clinic" (in Las Vegas, New Mexico) which he operated for more than 25 years. 

"The F Word," Family Physician Of The Year Acceptance Speech By David Stoltze, M.D.

Las Vegas is where "Milagro Beanfield War" was filmed.

Many of "the extras" - including the old geezers who threaten to "blow off the nuts" of the National Forest Service agent - were David's patients.

We camped at La Flor, on the meter high bluff where the beach gave way to palm trees.  Just us and the turtles.

Part of our "adventure" was to read aloud John Nichols' novel, "The Milagro Beanfield War" - and the beginning of "The Magic Journey," the second book in Nichol's New Mexico Trilogy.

We laughed liked banshees.

Mommy was in Cuba that week.


Daddy man

PS  The romantic subplot of "Magic Journey" was just too funny.
