The message was posted on Rob’s message board there would be a gathering of folks who participate or read the board at Otilla’s on
Tuesday the 25th. I’ve never been able to make any of these before, I’m only an occasion poster, mostly when I’m asking for information. I’ve learned not to post my personal opinion, I’m always uncomfortable with the flack you get back. I’m too thin-skinned to ever get into the many discussions on the board, but do read them with interest. Since this was a “party” it sounded like fun. And it was! And all agreed that the Rob’s message board is a great service to the community here. Though not a huge crowd, but at least 20 folks attended giving everyone a chance to meet and put faces to board posting names. It’s always interesting to meet new people learn about there travels, their favorite places and share stories and experiences. The senor did not attend but finished up cooking duties as we always do a crock pot dinner on
beach days as the beach seems to wear one out. We had chicken, carrots 2 kinds of squash, a fennel bulb, garlic onions and celery and seasoning from a package of “fido” soup. It’s always nice to come home from a day at the beach to smell you dinner cooking.
We got some sad new yesterday our friend Jack Mills died. He and Barb had been in
Zihuatanejo in January but Jack became ill and returned to the states for treatment, and Barb followed a day or two later when it was decided he wouldn’t be returning. Jack was an unforgettable character and will be missed by his many friends in Zihuatanejo. His passing came much sooner than expected. Our thoughts and prayers are with Barb and their families.
Today is my birthday, the beginning of my 7th decade. Life has treated me well, It is also the anniversary of the day I first met the Senor, 20 years ago. Shortly after midnight as we both woke up to roll over and get more comfortable he wished me a happy birthday, I thought it quite sweet. I will pass this day in beautiful sunshine which has always been a rarity on my birthday. And tonight we will have a celebration dinner at El Agave with friends. The only thing nicer would be if my family were able to be here also. Signing off KO
