JAN 25, MONDAY; Shopping
Again the internet is sporadic; one minute we have it, the next it’s gone. Very, very frustrating! Val went for her morning walk with Audrey; Louise went to an Art class. I took Val and Audrey to Walmart for some shopping then to Aberritos for lunch. At 6 pm, the girls went to see Marcel and his crew play at a private party. They were back an hour and a half later. They just wanted to make an appearance for Marcel’ sake. We watched more of season 4 of SoA
JAN 26, TUESDAY;
I uploaded the newest pictures to “my Picasa pictures” on the web. The net was faster this morning so gotta take advantage of it. We all drove to LA MANGA village for a visit, a small poor fishing village just past SOGGY PESOS via a dirt road. There were a few assorted shells on display and Marcel bought a couple for his grand-child. We took some pictures, walked around, gave candies to local kids (didn’t take long for the word to spread) then we visited a couple places along the way back. We stopped at the Marina, walked the Malecon and stopped at a local pub (HAMMERHEAD) for a beer or two and lunch/snack! On the walk back, we stopped for another beer at another little pub with live music but soon left as it was getting late. We drove home to complete another very nice day!
JAN 27, WEDNESDAY;
I uploaded more pictures from our adventures yesterday! We have a new neighbour, a noisy diesel Dodge with camper, woke me up this morning!
The Ennis and us went for hot dogs and pop for lunch. I also gas up the Jeep then we stopped at the Clinic to make an appointment with the doctor for tomorrow. HH was at the Lemieux’s and we had new guest, Ben and Lorraine Lemieux (no relations) from TEKALAI, next door. We called it quit at 7 am, went in and had a light dinner.
JAN 28, THURSDAY;
The days are warmer and warmer as we head into February. No internet again. FRUSTRATING!!!! We went to the Clinic for Val’s Dr appointment. She was in there for an hour then we picked up some meds for her. Back at the ranch, we sat around until 3 pm when the girls and I went to Guaymas movie theatre to watch “The REVENANT”. Worth seeing; we enjoyed it tremendously! Back at our site by 7 pm, BBQ pork chops and potatoes for dinner and more of the SoA.
JAN 29, FRIDAY; Music Day to celebrate birthdays
Val went to town with Audrey so that she (Aud) could buy a picture for Marcel. We were celebrating 3 upcoming birthdays for this week-end so that’s what Marcel and his crew’s music was dedicated to today. Again we had a big crowd and our neighbour put on a spread of appies to make us all jealous. It went on until 7 pm before everyone finally left and the music stopped. It started at 2 pm, 5 hours of music. I don’t know how they do it!? We had Italian Spaghetti for dinner then more of SoA. We are now at the end of season 5; two more season to go.
JAN 30, SATURDAY
FINALLY! Got internet this morning. Downloaded my mail and checked my bank accounts. Marcel and Audrey went to SOGGY PESOS with Brian to play in a Charitable concert competition. The price was $20 us each so we passed and so did the Ennis. We went to town to the Clinic to drop off samplers and we had lunch next door at PANCHITO VILLA. I had a hamburger which was very good and Val had Shrimp Tacos with cheese. She liked it a lot too. Back at the Park, Louise, Dave and us went to the PILLAR CONDOS for open houses. Not all that impressive but interesting to view. We came home, relaxed and enjoyed HH with Louise, Dave, Al and Brenda. Val made a tuna casserole for dinner then we continued with SoA season 5 and 6.
JAN 31, SUNDAY;
We were supposed to go to Empalme today but Val wasn’t feeling good so we postpone it. The gang went to Guaymas to shop at SAM’s CLUB for some groceries. It was a quiet day at home and at 4 PM we had HH at Aud and Marcel. We were missing some episodes of SoA so Marcel copied them and gave us what we were missing and that’s what we watched tonight.
