Morning Thoughts

I went to the Thrill the World dance over the weekend but left before it started. All I had was my i pad and it mostly took awful photos. There was such a huge crowd in front of where the dancers were preforming that I couldn't see them. So I finally gave up and walked home. I took maybe ten photos of various people while I was there and only two came out okay. I ordered two cameras this time from e bay. One new camera and one used camera as a backup. But I can't get them until I meet up with my family in Portland. In the meantime, I am going to have to struggle along with this i pad. It is a lot easier to take photos when there isn't a crowd in front of me and people aren't dancing. I was disappointed. For years I have always had a camera that worked properly in my hand during interesting events.  Here is the only photo that came out okay from that evening.
 

I took the next photo just now. Someone asked me if Chico and Olive slept together or were friends. I said NO... but look at this photo.

 
They are together enjoying the sunshine.

Okay, I have to admit that there is another reason I didn't stay and fight that crowd at the dance. There were some young Mexican men selling bedspreads. They had come up from Oaxaca, where they were made. At least that is what they said. They were all beautiful (the bedspreads and the young men) and I needed one for my front bed ( A Bedspread, not a young man) so I bought this one for 500 pesos, which is about 25 American dollars. Here is a better photo of it. So carrying that around made taking photos with my i pad even more difficult. Trying to hold a big i pad high over the crowd with one hand while holding a heavy blanket with the other was laughable....  It was a stupid impulse buy and after I had it in my hands I wondered about my sanity.....

  4. That was a good buy - it is really pretty and goes with the purple and tan blankets you already had.

  5. Patricia,I think the bedspread is lovely. I would have bought one too. Can't find a bedspread any where here. It's
    all comforters and bed skirts and shams. Costs a lot more than a bed spread and is harder to put together etc. Forget washing the bed skirt--ugh---taking it off and putting back on is a real chore!

    1. Hi Connie, thanks for commenting. I have never washed my bed skirt for that reason. Now it is mostly hidden by this bedspread. This bedspread is also going to be very hard to wash. I was thinking about that this morning when I came into the room and saw that Chico had gotten under the protective sheet and was sleeping right on it. Soon it will smell like a dog and need to be washed. But he really loved it. I guess it is more his than mine now. P

    2. I recently read on one of the groups that there is a laundry with large capacity washers in town. It was either behind Oxxo, or Pemex. Can't remember which.
