a very nice brunch
We had Blanche and Bob here yesterday for a "thanks a million" brunch; Bloody Margaritas, quiche, salad, Mr. C's coffee ice cream, all enjoyed out on the terrazza. It was perfect weather for sitting outside.
Omar the Gardener will be here soon and we will finally plant the shrubs along the wall across the street. It looks like we are not going to get that ugly edifice painted while we're here; we'll leave it for Fernando to do during the summer. We'll buy the paint when we go to Tecoman on next Tuesday for our last round of end-of-season chores, i.e., haircut (50 pesos plus tip), bank (get out more cheap pesos), any provisions. I've already started packing up things to be left here, things to go home.
Dago's tonight to get my shrimp for tomorrow's opera salad; Shostakovich's "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk". Never heard it. I'll report.
