This was a challenge to read...but I think it would be more of a challenge to live it! Trying to send some good luck your way...

Oh Linda, how funny. I felt like I was reading one of those brain excerizes(now I'm doining it) for ancianos. Isn't living in Mexico a trip, never know what is going to happen next, i.e. water up to one's boobs, lol. Chin up it'll soon be November and you'll be thinking about all of us in the USA freezing our buns off.

Linda, I'll know for certain next week when I arrive in Merida for 10 days..hopefully our casa will be livable and it'll be OK if it's only 1 or 2 steps above camping!

Hi Linda, I've been following your blog off and on for awhile now. I work at the carnation (yeah THAT carntion, is there more than one?) library. I remember seeing you in starbucks on occasion. I really enjoy reading your blog. I've been toying with the idea of moving to mexico (maybe veracruz) when I retire. In, if the gods are willing, 4 or 5 years. It sounds like you really love it! I hope I will too... And I love your dichroic glass!!!!-Jan
