Good morning everyone.  We have beautiful sunny skies in San Felipe today with gusts of wind here and there.  We had a lot of wind yesterday too, but in the sun, it was quite pleasant.  I want to clarify a mistake I made in yesterday’s column.  It wasn’t George Emery who was crowned Snowbird King, it was Bill Casey.  Those two look an awful lot alike and when I saw George at FatBoys yesterday, I asked him about it and that’s when the light went on.  I had looked at the photo and thought it was George, but it wasn’t.  I don’t like to give misinformation but sometimes, it can’t be helped.  So on with the day and first up is the “South Campos Annual Holiday Craft Fair” on November 28 from 9 am to 1:00 pm.  It will be held at the South Campos Community Center at Km. 35.5.  In addition to all the beautiful art and crafts, they’ll have raffles, a cookie bake sale and libations will also be served.  Save the date!

Good morning everyone and we made it through another busy weekend with the Snowbird Festival on Friday, which I apologize for not announcing it in Thursday’s column, but I completely spaced it out and I always want to attend that event.  It was very nice I was told with lots of good food and entertainment.  I believe George Emery was crowned the new King, but I’m not sure who the Queen was or is.  There were quite a few peeps there, and Tourism did a great job of putting it together.  If you missed it this year, never fear, we’ll have another one next year.  I want to thank Darryl Silva aka “Dario de Baja” for his article with photos on Sunday.  It’s a good read and lets folks know how busy one can be when “retired”.  By the way, Happy Anniversary to Darryl and Vickie Silva.  I believe I read it was 46 years and hats off to them.  Yesterday was also the Arts and Crafts fair at Playa de Oro at The Margarita House.
