Living in the moment is the best way, in my opinion, to live life! It happened again last night. I came in from my evening at Longhorn Saloon where I went thinking I was going to hear Billie Rose sing blues - oh and CAN she. But the owner had other plans and it was 50's and 60's music for dancing. Oh well. It was fun because I was with friends. Great conversation and catching up on all kinds of things. Some of which were the plans for the BIG BBQ cookoff on the 4th of July, which I think I might get sucked into whether I want to or not. More on that later! So I got home a little late. I went to the computer and voila, I had an email from Miguel, aka Felipe of the blog, Zapata Tales. He and La Guapa Senora were in town! And, they wanted to meet for breakfast on Sunday morning. How exciting. I am a HUGE admirer of his writing. Huge. He was a journalist for many papers throughout his career. Even a stint at the Houston Chronicle. His phraseology and his quirky way of seeing things dazzle me. Read him at www.tzuru4.blogspot.com and The Bierce Account at www.bierceannals.blogspot.com Enjoy! You'll be hooked.
So, up I was first thing this morning. Dressed in my finest, well let's not get carried away. But I did fix my hair and put on makeup and clean clothes, the works. That's something for a Sunday morning for me. You know, first impressions and all. I wondered if we would recognize each other. After all, yes we have corresponded for a couple of years, but to actually meet face to face! Well I needn't have worried. We recognized each other instantly. Talked incessantly. There was not enough time. It would have taken days for me to ask him all the questions I had to ask.
But instead, I brought them up to mi casa so a point of reference could be established. And, I wanted them to see the views of the real San Miguel. At least my reality. They wanted to head home to Patzcauro soon, so I didn't delay them, but oh I wanted to.
What a beautiful and nice couple. He, who comes across as a hard ass sometimes on his blog, is actually quite a sweet guy. (He'll hate that I said that) There was not enough time. I'm going to have to go to Patzcauro for several days and hopefully have cafecito in the Plaza, so I can ask all those questions..........SOON.
It was the highlight of the weekend for me.
