Zihuatanejo, Always interesting

As I headed out to the swimming pool this morning, I thought it is a long walk and taxi’s are cheap, but then I saw what reminded me of why I walk everywhere.  You miss out on the small stuff, the stuff that makes you say ahh! On the main drag, Benito Juarez a car was half in the road way.  Why I do not know why but the back-end definitely stuck out into the driving lane and the front end not so much. There was a group of 5 or 6 men

guys moving a car out of the roadway

were around it actually lifting the back-end to rotate it out of the roadway.  As I was madly attempting to pull my phone out of my pack back they had successfully move the back end and now weretackling the front end.  Now at home someone would have a AAA card or someone would have called for a police impound.  But in Zihuatanejo

 

neighbors help neighbors.

Just before I reached the pool there is a large vacant lot that is fenced off from the road with a chain link fence. Stuck in it was an old palm tree branch.  What makes this branch

special is there was a bird’s nest still in it.  A family once made this their home. I hope they moved on before it fell.

A couple of days ago I went to an “electronico” store as we left at home a cord to a light fixture that we wanted to put under the kitchen cabinet.  In my fracture spanish I asked if they had one and showed her one similar.  She searched her drawers with no luck then went for her phone and called someone.  I know just enough spanish to know she had sent for help and I was to wait.  Moments later a small red car rounded the corner, an employee ran out to meet it and cord was quickly changed hands to the employee.  45 pesos later I’m on my way with a home with new cord.  No drug deal was ever transpired quicker. LOL

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

    KO, Sounded like a nice Thanksgiving gettogether with friends. Ours really changed, with “black Friday” starting at 5:00p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. And yes, there were the store “fights” on TV with at least two shootings.

    KO, there is nothing wrong with an armed security guard riding shotgun on a beer delivery truck, they all should have one, as beer is a treasure. We are in record temp territory with 58*F today and a “pineapple express” delivering ~2 inches of rain. Other than aquatics classes, our pool is mostly empty and I can swim sideways if I wanted to, except for Drake and sometimes one other. Temp is steady at 82*F.

    KO, thank you for sharing a little south of the border with us, we enjoy living vicariously with you. “Mucho Grasses” Drake and Becky.
    PS, We took a widowed neighbor with us for Thanksgiving Dinner with Ham, Prime Rib, Shrimp, Turkey and all the trimmings and mucho deserts, at Bangor Submarine Base, not a single dish to wash either. Was fun dining with the troops. However, I would trade it for a fresh Mahi Mahi dinner. Thursday, 29th, is our 49th anniversary and will indulge in a lobster dinner at Anthony’s.

    1. Where i swim in the local commmrkerunity olympic out door pool they is seldom mo thn 3- 4 other swimmers. They have it set up with no lane ropes and you swim crosswise instead of length wise. If it ws crowdd it would be difficult with no set lanes. The water is a little cool in tthe morning but after walking about a mile and a quarter to get there I’m ready to cool off. Temperatures never get below 77 vn at night. Mostly 86 and sunny.
