Another Fine Day

Today was another do-nothing day. Señor B didn't get much sleep last night, thanks to Señor Montezuma, so he slept until noon. Poor guy.

Later on we hung out at the pool, soaking up the sun and visiting with whomever showed up throughout the afternoon.

We had supper with L & M. M is a bbq-er extraordinaire. We had his chicken wings a while back and they were to die for. The ribs he made for tonight were equally delicious. He concocts his own basting sauce and it's far superior to anything available in the stores. L made a potato salad and we also cooked up the shrimp Señor B and I had purchased from the fish guy a couple weeks ago. We did half as garlic shrimp and half as cold ones for dipping in cocktail sauce. Dessert was tiny cinnamon rolls from Costco.

In the courtyard, beside the pool, is an area with a boardwalk type floor and covered with a large palapa. There are 2 picnic tables and 3 or 4 solar powered lights. It was a beautiful evening with almost no wind so we decided to eat there.

We ranted about political injustices, the economy, stupid people, people who come to México thinking they can change the culture, people who think México should be exactly the same as it is in whatever country they came from, about the changing workforce and the sense of entitlement the younger workforce seems to have, how companies seem to pander to these young people and ignore the older, long time loyal workers, and a great many other things.

A fabulous supper with like-minded friends was a great way to end the day.
