Default Wednesday Nov 1

Good morning. Another month gone. Last evening both going out and coming home we found the road that leads in out neighborhood was packed with cars of people for Halloween yet no one was on our street, we are the last street but still. It was crazy and I noticed that nobody had flashlights. I had a package that was supposed to be delivered but I would say that because of the number of people the driver just went back to the warehouse so the package will be delivered today. The temp today is supposed to warm up to about 80, right now I have the backdoor open.

All have a great day.

Good morning, everyone.

I hope everyone is recovering from their leftover candy hangover.

Well, our new place had a total of zero trick or treaters. I guess the development doesn't have enough houses and with mostly us old people living in the homes that have been built, it wasn't lucrative enough for them. I think in a year or two we'll be a Mecca for trick or treaters. High number of homes, close together and a lot of people with grandkids. The problem I'm facing now is what does a guy do with two bags of Snickers, one bag of Hershey chocolate and one bag of Dove chocolate. Watch Mike gain ten pounds in two weeks.

We have only one more week until we leave for our Carnival Miracle cruise. We'll spend a couple of days in Long Beach, with friends, before the cruise so it will be a nice getaway.

Today is just a Costco run and that's about all that's on the agenda.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and a great rest of the week.

Take care,
Mike

Good morning. Nancy, how was your dinner? We enjoyed a steak dinner at one of our favorite places in Pasadena. The restaurant was bustling with diners and patrons at the bar cheering on the Dodgers. I'm not a sports fan, but I thought one of the local news anchors was funny when he said, "Dodger fans got the best Halloween gift ever!" I don't like to go to bed on a full stomach, so I wound up watching The Tonight Show.

Keith is going to lunch with a buddy, so I am at lose ends. It's not a very nice day, but if it doesn't rain, I might go shopping.

We are in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic which is on the north coast of the Samana Peninsula. This area escaped the hurricanes with very little damage compared to others. Certain beach areas did have some erosion and of course there are trees down. Locals say they dodged a bullet. Our villa is in a condominium complex that looks very similar to an all-inclusive resort.....just no all day snacks and drinks. Grocery store food prices are slightly higher than back home; wine prices about the same and crevasse/beer is cheaper. Sunny, hot and humid. The ocean water is warm and you donít need to ease yourself in.
