Jeannie, my neighbor, dropped me off at the Excalibur in Las Vegas after our 5 hour drive from Phoenix. Dinner at Buca de beppa was OK but now the Poker Table calls. I folded after two hours with a $100 loss to make up tomorrow.
Mike returned to the hotel so I could bestow my lavish gifts for Oaxaca on him…a CD and some instant Mole for Mexican dishes.
The situation has become worse but those that have been there , say they can’t remember when their were no protests in Oaxaca…it’s the nature of Wonderland. I’m returning with a very positive attitude.
I woke with a swollen cyst in my groin area on Saturday. My Primary Care Dr. Narda at the VA saw me in two days….when I called my third Primary Care Doctor with Cigna,to make my first appointment, this Doctor that was seeking clients gave me her first available appointment over 6 weeks away. Dr Narda sent me to the VA two days later for a Sonogram to determine if the Cyst was infecting my Scrotum…that would be back. The test was tonight and the results take maybe two weeks for the radiologists to give his opinion.
The antibiotics took care of everything and the infection went away….thank God.
Debbie, an good friend was just returning from Puerto Penasco with her friends Sonya and Mark. It is a tradition…that and St Pat’s Day. We went out to dinner but could barely cover all the catching up over a year’s time. She may move to Ecuador and we could visit later.
A wonderful three course dinner at Deseo was a night with me having to visit the VA the next day so we separated knowing she will be back next year.
I stopped out to New River to visit Chris. Larry had arrived from Colorado so he and his lady Bambi and Chris and I had a nice dinner together with Rose and Jim joining us. We decided to go to the dance with them that evening but after a few more drinks, the evening was over..
The following week Marjorie and I went to an opening of the newly remodeled Mountain Shadows resort.
My friend from Travel Insider’s North Korean Tour, Kenny from California, drove over to be with his relatives for Thanksgiving and invited me. Nice family and great Thanksgiving. He returned Christmas and we went out for lunch and visited the Art Museum.
