Vistitors From Honduras

One of the clinics I have helped in Honduras belongs to Dr. Noe Guardado. Since I last saw him the 31 year-old medical doctor has been elected mayor and represents 89 small villages the poorest of which I visited with him.

It has been a great treat to have Noe and his wife here for the week. (It must have been like walking around in air conditioning for them.)
Lt. Governor's Office
Friday we had a very productive meeting with the Lt. Governor's staff (Brad Owen was in Taiwan). We toured the legislative building and visited the Supreme Court.
Sunday at Dan Roach's we shared an American Halloween. At Dan's house it is really done right! Fire pits outside to keep warm, hot cider, pot luck inside, a haunted house next door, and hundreds of costumed kids! We pulled one-year old, "puppy" Charlie, in a wagon. Grandma took him to his first ever trick-or-treat house.

We watched the East coast returns from the farm and then went to Roach Gymnastics for the 8:15 first returns. The campaigns of Roach and Roach watched the returns projected on the wall and kids ran around the 21,000 sq. foot facility. Roach and Roach both pulled over 64%. OK...I out polled the younger guy. (I wonder if he noticed!)

Noe will be in his Congress someday. That is my prediction. He is a great leader and does so much to help his people. Our countries are 130 years apart...but we both value freedom and want to help people.
