The warm or I should say hot weather here keeps me lazier in the day time than usual. But I cope just fine. To begin with I am a morning person and up usually up by 6:30 no matter where I am. I like sunrise, it always holds such promise. On the other hand the Senor is not a morning person and rarely is awake before 8 and likes an hour or two before moving far off the bed. And this works as I run my errands, and do our Mercado shopping early and allows my time to walk about and explore town. This morning a group of school kids were practicing drill team maneuvers at the zocolo. They were quite good.
we’ve had a bit of an hot water issue here this year. I complained to Javier the first day here and he immediately got on the phone and I thought the problem would soon be solved, I asked our balcony neighbor if he had hot water. His reply is you let it run a long time and it gets warm. That may work for him he is a guitarist working in several of the bars and late in the day the sun has warmed the storage take to luke warm, George across the hall said he liked cold showers and the girl down stairs said its so warm here it doesn’t matter. I knew enough from previous years to make sure the pilot light was lit and tried adjusting the temperature controls with no luck. Well we cook in quite bit and many times I’ve had to boil water for dishes. Since I shower early and the water was cold, I brought down a cup of the supposed hot water to Javier and stated my complaint one more time. On the phone again and in no time we had HOT water . Mission accomplished!
On my walk a noticed a cute black and white cat sitting at the street corner, while I was fumbling for my camera a street dog rounded the corner that was twice the cats size and she had no where to run. The dog looked at her, she arched her back and hissed and the dog got a look of terror in his eyes and made a very wide arc around her. She calmly resumed her position. Cats Rule!
Went to the movies last night, Ultimo Viejo Las Vegas. It was in English with Spanish subtitles. Very funny, with all the great actors. Then on to the Barracuda to listen to Steve and Allen play classic rock and roll. Another great evening. Signing Off KO
