Unfortunately, yes, so I repeat .

Maybe if I could get one or both of the two guys to write about getting sick after their meals, there would go your hearsay argument out the window.

Well that sure would be clever of you, especially since I just posted that when they tell the story, it isn't hearsay.

Of course you conveniently deleted that part of my post when you quoted it, just above. So here, I'll repost the whole thing for you:

In fact, they personally experienced it, so when they tell the tale, it isn't hearsay.

It is when you repeat the story with no firsthand knowledge of or direct involvement in the events at issue that it is hearsay.

Am I really starting to sound like a lawyer?

Hope you've been paying attention. There will be a quiz on the rules of hearsay next Monday.

Sounds like you have the legal definition of hearsay down pat.
But than again, you know what they say about most lawyers and it is worse in Mexico..

this is not going well
perhaps we should move along

i have a feeling those guys ate somewhere else
perhaps with the ex-owner of la portena??

who nose
check out ronny's "grillmeister" big al
he will give you a tour
i think you will be impressed by the level of cleanliness
far beyond much of playa, as a careful german would be expected to act

ni modo, i aint got no horse in this race
good food, good price, clean place

go see for yerself

It's not the legal definition, it is just the definition. Dictionary.com - Hearsay

And it may very well be that you don't like my response on the matter, but please remember, you did ask the question....

Mom's is another favorite. Last Wednesday I had something to do and did not make Lido's or dinner. They ate there (Grillmeister) last Wednesday night and they both got sick. They told me in person last night about being sick.
Where is the hearsay. Please tell me.
So tell me, what do "they" say about lawyers there in Mexico?

Move along? Just when Al was about to tell me what "they" say about lawyers?

Ronny's beach restaurant at the Pelicano Inn was very popular. I really liked it.

Aw snap, it's all good on my part, I simply pointed out the fact that Al's post was hearsay. Nothing unpeaceful about it. Just the facts.

Wonder if I'll ever learn from Al what they say about lawyers, though.

I think there is at least one lawyer here who is very smart and pretty - she knows wine too.

I hope to meet her someday

Thumbs up

Congratulations

We will miss Ronny a lot, but he deserved to get finally his own place again.

We have to recommend his "Grillmeister"















Good luck Ronny
