All of tonight's photos are in Palomas Mexico. It is home to the widely renowned Pink Store. We were there in December of 06 & again a few months later in 07. We probably made half a dozen visits here & just basked in the beautifully colored ambience of the store itself. Good food, live Mexican bands & free Margaritas for those so inclined. People were handed the Margaritas as they walked in the door to shop & browse. It is one of those places you have to see to believe. You all know how much I dislike browsing & shopping but I sure enjoyed the time we spent in this Christmas colored Toyland:)) The Pink Store's owner got to know us & once drove Kelly & I across the border in her truck. Can't remember her name but she was a nice person. I also had some dental work done & we both obtained new eyeglass prescriptions in the Pink Store's plaza. With all the trouble in that area now I'm sure glad we had the opportunity to see & enjoy the Pink Store when we did. Many fond memories..............
Had it not been for my Doctor's appointment this morning the day would have ended up being pretty flat. Another test & another bucket of blood left at the Hospital. My instructions are to phone the Doctor guy's office Friday for today's test results. Boy, a fella sure has to jump over a lotta barrels & through a lotta hoops just be accepted into the new Canadian Astronaut Program:))
Handyman Bruce brought over & assembled the rig's computer station & it's going to work well for us freeing up some much needed space. Just a few minor alterations & the project will be finished Thursday. Our night time temps have been down around 26F so I've had to leave some heat on in the coach the past couple nights to keep waterlines from freezing.
Came across an interesting blog this morning & it turns out Kelly has been reading this RV full timing ladies blog for a long time now. Jennifer does her own repairs & maintenance, took a professional mechanics course & had an RV dealership teach her how to drive. I read some of her bio & was impressed with her honesty. Back from Alaska this summer she is currently kicking up a bunch of dust in New Mexico with her 2006 Gulf Stream Vista Cruiser Mini. Check out, LIVING IN MY CAR
For the second year in a row we will leave here in a few days with empty spaces in our Motor Home bins. That's a big departure from our first few years Snow Birding when we both felt we had to fill every last inch & ounce of space with at least 'something!!' Just didn't seem right to be going somewhere & not be fully loaded to the rafters. We bundled aboard all kinds of heavily weighted canned goods & probably brought a third of them back home with us again. It's a common mistake a lot of RV'ers make starting out & I am reminded of that every time I see vacant space in our bins. But you know what, I still have the urge to fill those spaces with at least, something!!
