Our garden.

 Someone once asked us why we put in a garden. I think we said.........because we can.
 There is something very calming about growing your own stuff, even though you can walk to town and buy vegetables and fruit very cheaply here. There is something even relaxing about seeing little tiny lettuce seeds that you had to plant twice because the doves kept eating the seeds.
 There are even funny things in our garden, like an electric fence around the corn bed. It's cheap and low voltage and has a switch to turn it on and off.......... it isn't a people fence, it's a squirrel fence.
 Senor touched it when he first put it in and got a little zizzle. Then he forgot it was there.
 Recently when he was observing his corn grow, he accidentally leaned into it, got another zizzle.......won't even hurt the cat, he says. I see the dove in there a lot, waiting for something. They probably know the trick by now and are just waiting for Senor to come out and observe and forget about the fence. I am certain they watch us as much as we watch them.
 Here is the giant portal tomato. I think this is year 4 for the seeds to produce.
And here is Senor the other night, on his birthday, with his hostess cupcake and his present, sharpies.

Day of the Dead is tonight and for some reason I have decided to stay home. I was in the Panteon all week long, working on graves and working in the Museum as well, on the History Club altar. Then we were out last night at the Festival Calaca and we will be at the Festival Sunday night. I think I am needing a little rest.

The sky is very dark and cloudy and we are waiting, hoping to get some rain from Tropical Storm Eighteen_E. So, I am going to go look at the sky now.

Well Happy belated Birthday Senor!!
I see his taste in junk food runs along the same lines as Roys lol. I always bring Roy a Penguino home when I go shopping. The other day I grabbed the package without realizing that there are now packs of 3. He was a happy camper lol.
