IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

On the morning of the first day of December the Christmas Flags went up on our street soon followed by inflatable

Frosty and other characters appear each night after dark at the corner by the statue.

This morning I walked up to the “Buenoche” market and bought two beautiful poinsettia plants to make our apartment more festive. And every evening our balcony has solar Christmas lights on the railing.

But Christmas arrived early for us in the form of a long awaited for fed ex package. En route to Zihuatanejo I had left a small purse with a debit card and my drivers license at and  the Seattle hotel.

My son retrieved it and was to send it along with the computer hard drive that my daughter copies movies and TV series and mails to us for use in Zihuatanejo. It arrived at our home the day after we left, so my son put my purse in that package readdressed it, put the  debit card receipt in the box showing how much he paid fed to send it priority to us. It got to Mexico in 2 days and then was held hostage in Mexican customs for 16 days.  FedEx was little to no help in helping to resolve what the problem was, or what items were in question. But 17 days later  and $175. we have the package with everything in it except the receipt. So we got the Christmas presents from my daughter ( we never would have brought them with us, no need of a sweat shirt or the medallions for my walking stick) But I am enjoying the framed photo of all 4 of my kids, especially since  they so rarely are all together. signing off KO

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
