No Computer = No Photos
Oh how I wish my computer wasn't still very sick! Today and tonight were such fun! I'll give you a quick preview and then, as soon as I have my computer back, I'll share many photos. I'll start with this afternoon. I was busy doing homework when my doorbell rang and therenwas Blanca and her son. Two of their roosters had attempted the great escape and ended up in my back yard. Blanca asked if I like chicken -- to eat. I assured her I do. I'm not sure if I have fresh chicken innmy future or not. I'll let you know. In the meantime, her son went home and came back a minute later with 5 eggs. What a treat. Then tonight I was sitting around thinking about when I thought I might want to go to bed. It was very noisy outside -- with much music and loud speakers. I poked my head out to see if I could see what was happening. Whatever it was appeared to be happening at the park. Sure enough -- much activity. There were three bands, bleachers, several rows of chairs, and dancing in the streets. Even the mayor was out there kicking up his heels. I couldn't just click a few photos and head home. I decided to hang out for a wee bit. I foundnmyself a little corner on one ofnthe bleachers and settled in to take more pictures. The next thing I know, this cute littlenman is asking me to dance. I don't dance under the best of circunstances and tonight my hair was uncombed and I was in a grubby T-shirt and pants. Wait until you see his photo -- he really is adorable. It didn't take long for me to figure out he was also a wee bit tipsy. I was offered a drink of something amber colored and since it's considered very rude to turn down a drink, I took a tiny sip. WHOA! I'm not positive what it was but I think I heard the guy next to me say it was whiskey. I was convinced to take another drink out of the communal plastic cup but then I was able to graciously turn down future offers without offending anyone. Lest you be concerned about the hygiene or lack thereof in sharing a glass, fear not -- there wasn't a germ left alive anywhere near that glass. Photos will be forthcoming.
