This morning we are packing up a few things and shutting down a few things at the house and heading back to cold MN for a couple months. Should be back in TX around the middle of January.
Really enjoyed the 80 degree weather nearly everyday - hopes it's warmer this year when we return than it was last year.
Had a great time just doing fun things - very little working on the house. Although we did put in a new dishwasher (old one died last spring) and then neighbors put in all new appliances so we bought their stove - nice GE smooth top. Ours was original to the house - worked but served it's time. Got my laptop desk and Vicky got a small end table so we should be good on furniture. Now wish the wood flooring was done.
Played social security with Lloyd and Gail and Ellis and Patty a couple times and learned a new card game "Somba" - much like hand and foot.
Of course there's going out to eat - Danny's, Fat Daddy's, Arribas in Mx and of course supper and at Bob and Joni's and Gil and Bev's.
Went to Mx last Tuesday with Bob and Joni - had a good time maybe a couple too many margarita's for the women - they were dancing by noon!! Hearing a lot of stories about the violence at the border but Progresso is very quiet. Military is there monitoring traffice but merchants and locals are very nice and make us feel very welcome. We are their bread and butter and they are very thankful that we come to patronize their business.
We fly out at 11:40 should be home by 8 tonight. Brrrrrrr!
