something I like to call ingenuity

Look at this guy.
Look closely.

How's that for creative and thrifty?

Wowza.

Yes. This is a view from our window.
Yes. I am a total spy.
But in my defense, he's eating his lunch in my front yard.
So, He's pretty much asking for it.

Anyway - back to the real issue here:
Do you see what he's got there?
It's a hot plate attached to a camping kerosine burner thingy.

Seriously, y'all.
Impressive.

Come on, take another look.

We watched him make his bean burrito on our front lawn.

Something tells me this guy knows all about Dave Ramsey and the envelopes.

Ingenuity indeed.
Very stealth-like, on your part.

He was cutting limbs w/ the city in our backyard. They stopped for lunch and we snapped a picture through the blinds. Isn't it awesome?

I don't even know what to say about him. Strange and very clever, all at the same time.

I’ve seen this before. I’ve seen this a lot. I saw this all the time while playing pro ball. It’s not just a Mexicano thing this is an international Hispanic thing. No matter Mexican, Puerto Rican, Venezuelan, Brazilian, Cuban, or Dominican....that all love their hot plates. We once were kicked out of ever using a Hotel called the River Rock Inn in Billings MT...That’s Billings, MT. a place that is in need of money; because the cleaning ladies found dead crows and pigeons in the rooms of the Latin’s along with a horrid smell after they used the hot plates for cooking them. No joke, this is a true story. Our manager looked at him and said " What the ______?! What the ______is wrong with you all? Is this an _______ joke? There is an _______ McDonalds right next to the hotel! They have an _______ dollar menu for _____ sake!" He was a very colorfully insightful man....
