My balcony pigeon has flown away with out so much as thank you for the food and company. She has been sitting on a nesting spot she made in our planter box since we arrived mid December. There never were any eggs. She was there last year too. She had grown quite comfortable with me talking with her in the mornings and evenings, seemed to appreciate the crackers I left for her. The Senor thinks it is strange that I would talk to her in full sentences and ask her questions, but she was kind of like a substitute pet while we are away from home.
Not only is the pool full up with water but it is also circulating, my only
complaint comment now is the roof they put over the pool keeps the sun out and the water cold. I’m happy. The locker room at the pool leaves everything to be desired, doors are falling off and missing on the toilet stalls, but the Mexican people are resourceful and they have re-purposed a couple of them to use as white boards at the pool.
Now about the “animal farm” I’ve been speculating on. Things have changed, much of the lot has been cleared of debris and it had been raked into a pile. The brush has been stacked sort of in front of a fenced area that has a trap or blanket draped on the fence and lo and behold behind this
fence I was able to catch a glimpse of a goat, a kid and a turkey. It appears they are all well, but now behind this enclosure where I can no longer watch them. I will miss my daily observations of them, but I’m sure someone official told them to get their act together. Mystery somewhat solved. Signing off KO
