  1. Pat,

    Safe travels to Portland. Have a wonderful time with family and friends. Who's caring for Chico while your away?

    1. Hi Lorrie, Thank you for the good wishes. The landlord, also the owner of Chico, is taking care of him while I am going to be gone. He is back now from his trip to Canada. P

  3. My wife and I were in Guanajuato years ago. We were sitting at an outdoor cafe enjoying our drinks, then along come a group of Mexican musicians, just like in your visit. They just started playing around our table, then asked if we'd like to hear another song. Sure, why not? After they finished, they said, "Pay us $20." What? We had no experience in this area, and had no idea we would have to pay so much. We gave them $10 and they walked off, making faces at us and grumbling to each other. If they had only told us up front what the fee would be!

    So to this day, when we get into a similar situation, we always politely decline when asked if we'd like to hear a song.

    Hope to see you soon.

    1. HI Jack and Virginia, One of my friends at the table on Sunday had a very similar story. I think maybe that is why she wanted to leave before they arrived. See you soon. P
