Rotary Dinner.

It was out on the patio, catered, and 73 people showed up. It was fun. But I'm pooped.
I'm off to the US of A tomorrow to visit family and friends for 12 days. I also have a grocery list and a movie list. Any 5 star suggestions?

Pony, Bella, Sonora

My little yearling is between her mother and her sister. Mama Pony is about 7 years old and barely reaches 15 hands. Bella is a month away from 2 years now. Sonora is 9 months and starting to shed her baby coat. Sonora and Bella had different Dads but Pony is their Mama. Sonora is weaned, but will stick her head under either Pony or Bella if given a chance. They both let her, too. All three girls really enjoy human company and stand quietly for brushing and kisses.

One more thing, Sonora has a complete white marking around her upper neck like a string of pearls. She's appropriately attired to take tea with the Queen.

Five Things I Miss
The things we miss because we aren't in our native country or maybe just not in our area of our native country can seem insignificant to those with the ability to get to them easily, but if they don't exist here and now they become larger than life. Dixie Peach passed-on this meme and I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I've described my little corner of Mexico as being like a small town in Montana. Ranches, cowboys, open spaces for miles and miles, and far and few conveniences. I have way too many choices of tacos, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, and no choices for other foods. Luckily I can get up to the Safeways and Costcos pretty easily and re-stock what I can't live without by making a "run for the border."
These are the foods I usually restock and I miss:

and I usually grab a deli sandwich before returning.

I miss shopping at Trader Joe's

I miss smooth highways with shoulders

I miss huge salad bars

I miss variety

Kung Hei Fat Choy

The year of the pig, or Boar, is about to start and I think that means a lucky year is ahead for those lucky souls born in the year of the pig. I hope I didn't bore you with this trivia.
Happy New Year!

Trolling for Dinner
A neighbor had a dream that after he retired he could come down here and fish his little heart out, and maybe try some kayaking. So he bought the perfect little boat that is a kayak with holes for fishing poles.
Yesterday he was out in the bay, on his maiden voyage just gently paddling along with his two lines out and damn if he didn't catch an edible fish.
I'm ready for Barbie to get back down here and go out with me. We'll take turns on who paddles and who fishes.

As promised, I caught the moon rising as the sun was setting last evening. The syzygy. It was a great low tide that is visable below my patio. I put the camera right on the railing so I wouldn't end up with jewelry again.

Then the other day we had such pretty lighting at sunset due to a little storm coming through.

I had the flash on and got this odd picture. There might have been a rainbow somewhere out there.
