    SATURDAY 11-28-09

    Hola Barb! Loved visiting with you and meeting John. He's a great guy and easy to be around. I guess you got everything straightened out at the airport regarding the tourist visa. Paul and Jeff called around 3:30 Friday and wanted us to come over and play some cards around the pool. Got home around 8:30, no dinner, just some leftovers, like pie, pecan tartlets and stuff like that. Ben left Saturday around 8:30 to take the boat back to Port Escondido and Paul, Jeff, and the dogs went with him. I'm meeting them at the Port to have lunch at Porta Bella restaurant (where we keep the boat) and bring them all back to Loreto. Jill went on the pilgrimage early this morning. Think I am fixing fresh fish fingers tonight for all of them. Luis stopped by the house yesterday and I replinshed the shrimp and fish. Still have lots of lobster. Tomorrow afternoon we have a group of 10 going to 1697 for their German dinner. Looking forward to that. Paul wants to do this mystery dinner before they head back to Virginia City for Christmas. We are planning a Valentines Party at their place. It never ends.....Thank you again for the monthly planner. It's our record for expenses and what's due! The bird loves its place. Think we will name it "Paco". Fits right in, the Spanish word for bird is "pajaro"....Again, glad to have you visit and meet John. We sure did an awful lot in a short time frame. Ben and I slept like logs last night. Even Lucy was ready to hit the sack. Enjoy your day off! Besos Jill
