Never did make it to the baseball game yesterday. Bonnie wasn't sure when it started, and by the time it got past noon, our ambition to go anywhere had pretty much disappeared. So I just puttered around on Sherman and Ruth did some laundry and cleaned the bathroom.
Ruth, Lani, Nancie, and Sharon.
We had visitors yesterday afternoon. Lani and her husband used to bring their RV here, and ended up buying a house on the ranch so now she lives here full time. Her friends Nancie and Sharon are visiting from the states for a few weeks. Anyhow, they came over to say hello and we had a good chat about Mexico and travel.
Once a month or so, I get the trouble light and crawl underneath Sherman for a half an hour or so and just inspect things. This time, I saw a small gasoline leak coming from the fuel line that goes to the generator. It turned out to be a simple fix, but it reinforced the idea that these monthly inspections are a worthwhile thing to do!
Mommy scorpion with her babies! Nasty!
We are not hooked up to services here, and I was looking to see which dump station would be the most convenient to use when we leave. There was a rock over a hole right near us, and you could tell the rock hadn't been moved in a long time. So I lifted it up, and there was a scorpion with her babies. I don't think I've ever seen a scorpion in the wild. They sure are nasty looking critters. Turned out that dump hole was out of service anyhow.

We took Bonnie out for supper last night to thank her for her hospitality during our stay here. We really enjoyed our week here! Ruth and I each had a bowl of pazole and Bonnie had cheese enchiladas. I had two beers, Ruth had a tequila and squirt, and Bonnie had rice water. Total bill including tip was 175 pesos ($13.65)! Have I mentioned lately that we love Mexico??!!
