Mexican life

The oval walk

AS I MENTIONED a couple of days ago, it feels like fall.

This morning was another glorious example on our mountaintop, so I clicked on the Canon and took a little stroll because I’m a sharing sort of fellow.

Around 10 a.m., it was just under 70 cool degrees. The birds were singing, and the wind chimes were binging.

  1. Beyond very nice…love wind chimes but El Esposo doesn’t like them at night and ties them up with rostrojo strings…

    1. Peggy: You went and confused me with “rostrojo.” There is also “rastrojo.” But my PC absolutely refuses to clear things up. It just keeps spinning in circles when I try to find a definition.

      No matter. A string is a string, ¿no? We don’t have trouble with wind chime noise at night. Probably has to do with the location of the chimes and their proximity to the bedroom. I do have problems with an antique clock in the living room. It bongs the hour and half hour, so I turn it off every evening before heading to the sack. And then I turn it on again in the morning.

      1. Oops … misspelled rastrojo … have many strings and they do come in handy when twine is too small and rope is too big.

  2. I loved your “walk about” outside. I would love to see one, inside the house. Maybe one floor per day. I am told that we all need to do that, for Insurance purposes. They need to see the condition of your house. Not that you would post that in the internet. Open every drawer/ door, to prove your valuables. Now that I think of it, you may not have “homeowners” Insurance in Mexico.

  3. That’s a little OCD with the clock but I am probably the last person qualified to point that out. Up here these days 70 degrees is about the high after climbing from about 50 in the morning. Makes for a lot of clothing changes.

    1. Brent: Not OCD at all. If you could hear the clock, you would understand. It bongs like Big Ben. We’d be bouncing out of bed every 30 minutes each night if I did not disable it, especially at midnight.

      1. We were once guests at a house whose guest bedroom had one of those black-and-white Kitty Kat clox. The kind that swings its tail to and fro as its eyes roll back and forth. I soon disabled it as it was driving me nutz! (And I LOVE katz!).

  4. It’s only the unseen moon if you don’t go out tonight and see the full harvest moon on October 5th. The cool sunny morning was a real delight today.

    2. I grew Mexican Fence Post Cactus in Kansas, same growing zone as Tennessee. Plant in a large shallow pot and bring in before the first hard frost. Place in a south facing window, water sparingly. Move it back outside after the last frost. I believe the Mexican Fence Post Cactus is the cactus bordering Felipe’s walk.

      I would be surprised if you could get a hold of a saguaro. Saguaros are pretty fiercely protected.

      1. Judy: I never heard the term Mexican Fence Post Cactus. I did an internet photo search, and it looks right. I have different forms, which is to say different numbers of ridges. I don’t know what that means.

  6. Really nice video, Señor. Much more fun (for most) compared to the Muslims and their shenanigans.

    These are really nice representations of the world you’re in.

    1. Gracias, Ricardo. I still like to toss in a little anti-Mohammedan propaganda now and then, just to mix it up. And one of the nicer elements of the world I live in is that there ain’t no Mohammedans!
