João is Portuguese for John, but as far as Jamie is concerned it’s Portuguese for “Hubba, hubba.” And that’s why I have such a tight grip on her in this photo.
We’re staying in Lisbon’s trendy Chiado neighborhood and three tuk tuk tour guides were lined up on the main street near our apartment. One was a middle-aged woman, one was an older man, and the third one was João. It really didn’t matter which guide I wanted.
João was great. He was informative and funny and charged us for a one hour tour even though he drove us around for three hours.
That’s when I said, “Hubba, hubba.”

Jim, you are a very funny man! Glad you haven’t changed a bit!!
Does João have a future as a pool boy in McK? ????
Jamie is ready to fund a new career for João in which he would relocate his tuk tuk to Texas. At least I think she said, “Tuk.”

Jim and Jamie: I am working in Las Vegas this week. I have the option of seeing Jim Gaffigan “Live” or staying in my hotel room and reading your BLOG? I choose your blog! Funny man you are! Bob
Your comments and pictures are wonderful, I’m glad you and Jamie are having such a great time. I never had the chance to travel around Europe, or any place else for that matter, the only time I was in a foreign country was back in 1972-’73. Cambodia and Laos were not real great tourist attractions at the time! I may not comment on all your posts but I do go through them, mostly to see all the pictures you have, and am enjoying it all.

Jim and Jamie … I skipped church this morning and find myself communing with your blog instead … I’m watching for lightning too!
It’s so fun to read about your adventures and smile all the while!
We miss having dinner with you and seeing you on your daily walks but we are being uplifted by your adventures and humor! Carry on! See you in January!
Go back to church, Jan. This blog is a false god.

My response to your tour guide.
Hope pic shows up.
Nope. Didn’t work, Judy. And being the tech moron that I am, I have no idea how to make it work. Sorry.
