A NIGHT OF CULTURE , AN AFTERNOON OF CELEBRATION THEN A LAZY DAY

Last night I attended a benefit concert for the local  Society for the Protection of Animals. Spaying and neutering pets is not the norm in Mexico as a result dogs and cats multiply and end up with out homes to live on the streets. Out  in the countryside dogs from feral packs and cause much damage to natural wild life and domesticated animals. .So this humane society takes in street dogs, spays or neuters them, sees to their health needs, bathes them, socializes them with the help of many volunteers, and makes them ready for adoption both locally and internationally.  Unfortunately not al are adopted and some have to be returned to the street, but at least they aren’t reproducing.  And since they have become socialized some find homes on their own.

Anyway, back to culture!

Los Hermos Morales

The concert featured Los Hermanos Morales as the warm up group. Two brothers with excellent guitar skills and voices that harmonize magnificently. Then the lovely Nora Murillo came on stage and captivated us with her first note, which I swear she held for a full img_0022minute or more. A real natural talent who sang with so much emotion and passion.  Her songs were all in spanish and while the some words could be picked out mostly it was the emotion of the songs was felt.  Nora is a beautiful young woman with a real gift she shared with a packed house.

Now for celebration

The Sail Fest volunteers, all 75 of us, were invited to Las

Palmas on Playa Blanca to celebrate our hard work and learn that as a group we way out did the earnings of last year. Folks brought appetizers and drinks, a lovely Mexican buffet was served and a good time was had by all. About 5 pm the folks from

the Turtle Rescue Sanctuary brought out a pan of turtles for us to release and cheer on to their return to the sea. In 15 or 20 years with luck a few will return to that very spot to lay their eggs.

Friday the Senor and I spent a lovely day at Playa las Gatas.

Nothing like a day on the beach just reading, watching the kids play in the water and dig in the sand.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
