This post has been rolling around in my head for a while, but never found its way out. Then, today, I read Tom’s excellent post entitled: But, it’s on sale!. In his post he talks about marketing and buying more stuff, but he also talks about his, and his wife’s efforts to downsize. While I was in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I met a couple, Will & Karen. They were taking beginning Spanish. During our breaks, and sometimes after…

I suppose since the Jardin is the center of town, if you know someone who lives in town, you’re bound to run into them from time to time – and so it was, Halloween night. I was walking around, looking at all of the goings on in San Miguel as they geared up for the next two days of festivities. I was taking photos here and there when I noticed a gentleman walk by.

James I like taking portraits, whether it be of people, or animals. It’s a challenge to get someone to relax in front of the camera. Animals, well, they just don’t seem to care after a few good sniffs of the lens.

It would be fair to say that Tim and…

Left to right: Monte, Earl, Paul Well, add another blogger to the list of those that I’ve met. Monte Stevens! Earl Moore, AKA, The Earl of Salisbury, joined us for some fine dining at The Olive Garden. We had a fine time of it. Heck, Monte even got to meet the now famous, Hobbs! Of course Hobbs, being the mean spirited dog that he was immediately overcome by Monte’s head scratching technique! We sat, talked, ate, and consumed nonalcoholic beverages…

It is always very meaningful to me when a new blogger stops by my blog. I always wonder how they found me on all of the cyber noise. It’s really nice when they decide to post a comment, or two, or three. But what is even more rewarding is when shortly after they appear here and I am reading their blog that I see some of my old familiar blog family posting there a day or two later. I like…
