A Quick Trip to D.F.

Paul and I just got back from a quick trip to México City. (Distrito Federal or D.F.) We had a blast. Our son and his wife live in the Condesa area, a very cool area populated mostly by hip young people. There are two huge parks in the area, Parque México and Parque España. Of course, with these wonderful parks nearby the area attracts people with dogs. It’s a wonderful place to walk the dogs or even get them trained...

I am still a bit tired but I was sorting through photos and I thought I’d share a few of them- at the top, Adam and Martha being funny…     Paul is happy.   Pig head.   Phil and Jen in Maz!   Owen and Erica with Señor Frog.   Erica boogie-boarding.   Everyone having fun.   The van heads back North to Washington!

Our house is in quite a jumble with all the construction but we have managed to make the guest room pretty nice, I think. Considering it still needs paint! There is a lot going on in town and we should have a lot of fun going-and-doing as well as sitting-and-talking. We always have fun with...

Goodbyes can be hard

  I have mentioned here before that I have been scanning all my photos so that I don’t have to carry the originals to Mexico with us. This has become a seemingly endless task, but one that has been a lot of fun, too. I’m looking forward to the ease of browsing through them – just telling the computer to run slide shows while I sit and watch. A couple of pictures made me think about farewells, and how hard...
