Hot Rod Lincoln / El Hot Rod Lincoln

Después de la versión inglés hay una versión español.

WE HAD AN exceptional meal Monday afternoon at the home of friends Lina and Raúl. Great food and friends. And their dog, Lincoln, is a sweetheart, too. He thought we were there solely to visit him and was a bit put out when he was told finally to go lie down. Raúl has a "thing" for those big old American cars like Chevys and Lincolns. Hence the dog's name. If they were to get a second dog, Raúl would name that one Continental (as in Lincoln Continental). Lina and Raúl (and Lincoln) were just what the doctor ordered (but maybe not all those delicious mojitos... nor the chocolate).

TUVIMOS UNA COMIDA excepcional el lunes por la tarde en la casa de amigos Lina y Raúl. Buena comida y amigos. Y su perro, Lincoln, es un amor también. Él pensó que estábamos allí solo para visitarlo y se sintió un poco molesto cuando le dijeron, finalmente, que se acostara. Raúl tiene una "cosa" para esos grandes y viejos autos americanos como Chevys y Lincolns. De ahí el nombre del perro. Si tuvieran un segundo perro, Raúl nombraría ese Continental (como en Lincoln Continental). Lina y Raúl (y Lincoln) fueron justo lo que recetó el doctor (pero tal vez no todos esos deliciosos mojitos... ni el chocolate).

LINCOLN LOOKING VERY CONTINENTAL.
LINCOLN SE VE MUY CONTINENTAL.

"Vas a llevarme a beber si no dejas de conducir ese hot rod Lincoln."

  4. Thanks for the share. Lincoln looks like he's not happy until dinner's served. Then again he still has the same face and now a human body. Lincoln what happened? What did they serve at dinner to you? Have a great day.

      Oh, Lincoln wishes that really happened -- not the conversion, but the meal.
