It strikes me as ironic, that the floor below us flooded, not us, but the tiles in our apartment lifted.  We had been noticeing some of our floor tiles squeaked a bit as we walked over them the last couple of days and we decided to let our Arturo our landlord check out the situation. By the time he arrived two rows were peaking where they met. Arturo said they would begin work tearing out the tiles and replacing them today at 10:00 and our options were to cover everything in the room or move next door. Mt first thought was just cover every thing, it would be a chore to move everything. The Senor was emphatic that we move next door as there was no guarantee how long it would take, and the dust problem would be horrendous. So we began the chore of relocating next door. We had settled in here long enough that everything had a place and now we are in semi chaos. Although moving was a pain the Senor was right and I’m glad we did.

After getting semi settled in we went to dinner with our downstairs neighbors and friends, Will and Sylvia. We

opted to go to the new Italian place Bella something on Nicholas Bravo and H Galeana. I should pay more attention to proper names. The food was very good, most of us enjoyed the meal. After dinner I drug everyone to the little shop across the street that sells baskets and other things. I had been admiring something in there for days, I had negotiated a decent price and then got the Senor to pay for it. It will make the most wonderful Christmas gift for my oldest daughter and family. I had already decided on something for my younger daughter,( so don’t get jealous Jeanette.) The proprietors, were very gracious, and I believe they were as thrilled with the sale as I was and presented the Senor with an initialed handkerchief. We all then headed to Banditos for a drink and to listen to the marvelous Michelle La Valle. Another very pleasant evening.

We went out to breakfast the next morning and as beautiful as this breakfast was the bacon took out one of the teeth on the Senor’s plate. but by late afternoon we located a denturist who fixed it for a nominal sum of less than $30


After breakfast I had set out to find Tess at her apartment for her to teach me the wonders of skype. well not only did I learn about Skype, Telcel  Mex and many other ways to make living and staying in Mexico more enjoyable.

Thursday is the Sailfest chili cook off and auction, probably their best event. Huge attendance but we were still able to score a few dinners for 2 and one raffle. This ensures I get to go out a few times as we have to eat anyway and if it costs a few extra pesos the kids have benefited

At the end of the day our apartment is no where livable, so we head out to the “Monkey House” to get the Thursday Barbecue.  The barbecue is great, can’t say as much for orders off the menu on barbecue night. With luck they will finish our apartment tomorrow so we can move back in. My net book is giving me fits, very slow and at times totally non cooperative. sorry for the complaint, I just had to vent. Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.
