Good morning everyone, although it’s getting close to afternoon.  It looks a little windy out today and Justino is up in the Palm tree, cutting dead leaves.  I finally made it out to try the home made corn dogs and his chicken yesterday and I have to say, on a scale of one to ten, he gets a ten.  The corn dogs were made to perfection and I brought one home for Justino (he’d never had one) and when he discovered a “weenie” inside, the look on his face was priceless.  While I was there, I met in person Diamond Braverman, the man who made the farewell movie tour on his way to San Felipe.  Nice guy and he remarked how delicious the chicken was, so I also bought two legs and two wings and the legs are gone but I still have the wings.  Excellent!  So, if you haven’t make the trip out there (it’s not far from the water company and he has a sign on the road) be sure and go as eve cold, the chicken leg was the bomb.  Photos by Kat Hammontre.

Good afternoon or evening everyone and although we had a sunny morning and early afternoon, it looks like it’s starting to cloud up a bit and the wind is picking up.  They are forecasting rain for tomorrow and possibly Friday, but you never know.  It may only rain one day and be sunny the next.  We did have enough sun to wash a couple of loads of blankets and sheets and they dried just fine – except the second load is still in the washer as it has jeans and whatnot and they won’t dry in time to take them down before the little darlings use them to play tug-a-war.  I love the smell of clean sheets when they dry in the sun.  The trick is to wash early and get them on the line.  I remember when I used to drive around town looking for garage sales and more than once, I went up and started looking at the clothes hanging on the fence.  It’s funny now, but a bit embarrassing then, when more than once I was told it was their laundry drying.  Gotta love San Felipe!  Photo by Kat Hammontre.
