Welcome to the Patio

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

So, to our surprise, when clicking on the "Locos Del Patio" link (from the forum main page) here is what we read:

Locos Del Patio

"This is a closed group, new members can only join upon invitation of a group leader."

{ http://www.allchile.net/chileforum/group3994.html }

So, as our name is listed there (at the very very bottom) -- we are here to say: "hello". And also, dear all:

Have a good health.

And, one hundred twenty years of age.

And, be lucky.

And, enjoy the pleasure(s) of [many] good glass(es) of wine.

May your eyesight last forever.

Most Respectfully,

Gato
The time that you spend reading this sentence could be employed to better advantage in almost any other way.

Sr. Gato...
greetings again - welcome back
many thanks for your kind words
now, here is some (sensible) wisdom...
perhaps "rules of conduct" (?)
to greet your esteemed entrance...
to this (muy loco) patio...
Have good thoughts in your lives.
Have good manners, be polite, and have good actions.
Be good, have love, and be patient.
Never think of harming others.
Only think of helping people.
Think that others should be made better
and that you should be made better.
That is how your heart should be.
Always wish for good things for other people.
If you do, then your life will never be ruined,
and you will progress higher and higher,
and your brothers and sisters will also become exalted.
Please think about this.
