Happy trails in Mexico
Things are nice in SAcramento, enjoying an Indian Summer. It will be 77-80 F today. I'm going for motorcycle ride sAturday and doing Jim's Burningman ho-down sAturday nite. Would like to ask a favor if your remember. I collect rocks from different parts of the world. Since, I can't join you, I would like a piece of Mexico. if you could note the rock came from that would be a bonus! If ther eis anything you need on this side of the boarder please let me know.....

The Photos are Mine
-Sue- I'm glad everybody enjoys the photos I'm including with the blog. I've probably taken almost 1000 photos so far and spend a bit of time selecting the ones I post. I didn't bring any great photo processing software with me, but I do have a program I can use to crop and resize what I want to post. I try to take my camera with me when I have the energy and, of course, when I'm going somewhere photogenic. A Day of the Dead blog will be arriving on your doorstep soon along with a great set of photos (hopefully).

Your beautiful pictures
I'm enjoying so much your vivid descriptions of your trip. But I particularly enjoyed the pictures of the dancers. Did you take the pictures yourself? If so, I'm really impressed. Love, Mom

Keep those stories and details coming!
Hi. I love having a mission--like specific stuff you want to find: kitchen items, bandaids, toilet paper, special rocks (I like rocks)--when you're away from home. Gives you a reason for some real interactions with the locals. I really like the way you are improving your Spanish with the private tutor, Bob. Congrats on making it more economical, too! Hope you are feeling better, Sue. Isn't it fun to settle into a neighborhood in a foreign country, and pretend you live there? I know it has been that way for me in Paris. Happy Day of the Dead! Guess you have heard, the Giants have won the first two games of the World Series, rather decisively. That's BIG news here. Love, Elinor / Iz

Hey Guys: I haven't read the last two blogs, yet. Been kinda busy. I'll read them today, tho'. Sounds like you are having quite the adventure. I'm so spoiled by WalMart, I think I'd be a little flustered to have to go to multiple stores for essentials. But, hey, when in Mexico! I'm impressed, Bob, that you're so committed to learning (sorta) the language. Muy bien! Michael was discharged (again) last night from the hospital. He was taken by ambulance on Monday to S.F. to have the experts drain the pseudocyst that's engulfing his pancreas. He still has pancreatitis and still needs to have is gallbladder removed. In the meantime, he's here. He's a mere shell of himself, since he hasn't really eaten food since Aug.23rd, when his pancreas exploded. I'm getting quite an education, mostly on hospital policy. Arghhh! Got good news this week when UCDavis 'pardoned' his tab, which was ~ $400,000. That was for 4 weeks. He was in Sutter 6 (more) weeks,. That stay is covered under his CMISP insurance. He's the million dollar man$$ Well, back to work. Have fun kids!!!!

Loved the connection you made, Sue, with Balzac and the song from the Music "Yes, folks we got trouble, right here in River City. And that starts with T and that rhymes with P, and that stands for Pool!" I remember stuff like that, and forgot more intellectual references like Balzac. Among other things, Music Man is a delightful spoof on stodgy conservative small-town life a long time ago. I remember it from high school days. But we saw a very fun production of Music Man not that long ago. The music really holds up. Besides Trouble in River City, I really like "Seventy-six Trombones". Your adventures in Mexico continue to sound enticing. Keep on with the enjoyable experiences and great photos! I am in Monterey, visiting Dirk and Leah for my birthday. What a luxury to be able to spend a whole week here! Iz

Happy Birthday, bro'!
Buenas Dias I thought about you, Bob, and sent best wishes yesterday on your birthday, then forgot to write. :( The music festival sounds great. Love the pictures! Great how you seem to have friends all over, from previous visits. Keep on having a great time in Mexico, and welcome to Medicare when you get back. :) Love, Iz

Beautiful and Exotic!
Loved hearing of your adventures! The pictures show what to me seems very exotic. The boat thing looks sort of like pictures I have seen of Bangkok. Isn't it lovely to return to a foreign place, and feel at home, glad to be back?? That's how I am in Paris. How's the air quality in Mexico City? It is in the same time zone as California?
