DOMINOES, HELEN’S PARTY, MEN’S HAPPY HOUR

       Well I maintained the lead for the first 11 rounds of Dominoes then in the round twelve Richard was up by one point…then 13, 14, and 15 I got beat bad to end up in last place the second week in a row.

       I did manage to pick-up the photos I had matted and they came out pretty good.  Now I have to figure out how to hang them on the wall.
       I left early today, while the maid cleaned the room I got a haircut, then walked over to Berlina to try the Strudel with Ice Cream and Cappuccino.  While I attempted to send a photo of my fantastic Cappuccino, my phone froze.  Just froze.  Could not use touch screen, turn off or delete or anything.

     I love my phone and was in a panic so went home after and contacted Google then plugged the phone in as if to charge it but no response.  Google was back to me in 5 minutes with options to cure the problem.  When I went to try them, the phone was fine again.  I scolded it good and sent it to it’s room.
     Helen invited me to dinner so I took a walk over and met her at a new neighborhood restaurant where we split a pizza.

 She is excited about her move into a real nice home on the same property for her last month in Oaxaca.  She is having a welcome party for her friend Ginny on Sunday.

   
     Today I went shopping, hoping to pickup some ideas for hanging my photos on stucco walls. When I returned Deke, my photographer neighbor was just arriving.  He brought over some leftover Velcro hangers that he uses.  I had enough to hang one and it worked well.

UNTIL MATTING SEPARATED AND  FELL SO WILL HAVE TO RETURN ALL PHOTOS

    It’s Sunday and I’m off to Office Depot to pick up more hangers for my photos. I am also buying a printer for my computer.  $20 is fair.  When I return I’ll be ready for Helen’s party.
    Well no hangers so I ordered them from the US and will be delivered next week.  The ink for my new $20 printer costs $68!!!
     Helen’s party was nice.

COALITION OF MEXICAN AND AMERICAN BUSINESSES AGAINST TRUMP’S INSULTS

 The rest of the week was uneventful.  My mounted photo that I hung fell apart in two days so I returned them all to be redone.  They will be ready next week when my hangers arrive.

       The weather has been so nice in the Mornings and Evenings I went out to just walk around and ended up having Salmon at Tres Bistro.

 Got to see the owners battery operated bicycle like the one I bought.

   

  Wednesday evening was Men’s Night at Casa Charles.  He got a puppy to keep him company and remodeled a bit to accommodate the dog and his neighbors.  It was one of the best Men’s Night we had.  I think there were close to 18 people from Toronto , Fresno, Oaxaca, San Francisco, …artists, Doctor, woodworker, college professor, retired lawyer…well the rest were all retired something…It was a fun evening.  I caught the bus home.
