A new "pickup" line!

I hot footed it down to the jardine this morning to take care of "bidness", as we say in Texas, and check to see if anyone died while I was gone for the week to the beach. I always sigh with relief when the answer is, "Not that we know of"...........geez.

So I'm catching up with everyone and about that time we hear horns tooting - someone says, "Did someone get married" and I looked and cracked up laughing. It was 7 SUVs with signs and 4 John Deere tractors and 4 Ford tractors circling the jardine. I presume it has to do with the new foods that can enter Mexico come June 1st through NAFTA but it was peaceful - damn, I didn't have my camera. You woulda loved that they had the tractors alternating in color John Deere green, Ford blue. They all parked everything, got out of the SUVS, off the tractors and disappeared. When I left, all the "vehicles" were still parked there. Everything always ends up in front of the Parroquia - the big church - be it taxis to be blessed with their hoods up, office equipment for the new Municipal offices with their drawers open to be blessed (I'm NOT making this up) or whatever................I LOVE IT!

So the "lunch bunch" was heading to the Bagel Cafe for lunch and this guy says to me, so help me, " What is a good looking middle-aged woman doing going to lunch with that old bunch of men?" I turned around to see who he was talking to...........I told him I had a "daddy complex". He looked shocked as I walked off...........

Got the photos back from the "beach adventure". GET ready - it was a doozy of a trip............Yup, I'm BACK to my old "happy" self...................

Those old men appreciate a "young chick" more than that guy could understand.
