Traveling from Texas.............
Yesterday, I wrote the blog talking about the glorious weekend with four of the five grandchildren I spent time with last weekend. Nope, could not get the photos to post. I worked for an hour trying all kinds of shenanigans to export the photos, to email the photos, to post the photos and finally in frustration, I deleted the post and turned off the laptop. The laptop needs the capable and knowledgeable touch of the Computer Guru, Rodrigo to help me. Some day you'll see all the photos.
Somehow I lucked out and had no companion next to me in the two seats! So, I slid over and looked out the window just to see if I could see the mountains yet and saw these views over a period of about thirty minutes. Exquisitely beautiful.
nervous in a plane. After all, back in the late 70's or early 80's, I crash landed in a gopher field near Rawlins, Wyoming in a plane owned by the company that I worked for at the time. We went through a storm similar to what we experienced Tuesday night. However, the plane that I crashed in was a Bonanza and this was a plane equal to an A320. I knew we would be okay.
Lots of reflection in the past few days about all of the family and friend experiences that I had. Also laughing, now about driving a teeny, tiny Ford Fiesta in Texas - the land of SUVs and Pickup Trucks. It was very daunting. About the need for a car and a need for a cell phone if you are in the USA! It was all an epic episode.
Now that I have returned to the land of manana, where one can walk, not carry a cell phone and be a few minutes late if necessary to meet friends, my blood pressure has dropped. Ha.
It definitely IS the rainy season. The gardens are a veritable plethora of blooming flowers along with the continual chirping and singing of birds - day and night. The hummingbirds are darting, as only they can dart.
Almost at the speed of light.
All in all, it IS good to be home. But, with the caveat, that I'm so glad I had three weeks in Texas. Viva Mexico!
