The wind was blowing mighty strong today and kept on until around 8:00 p.m. this evening. Temperature wise we had a high of 71 degrees For the most part I have been staying in. Considered driving Midnight (the Toyota) to the lake since it has basically been just sitting in the garage, but the wind made me change my mind. I have driven dad's old car on both occasions that I have gone to Mexico to see the doctor.
In this global economy everything in the world affects gas prices. Just last Monday regular gasoline was selling for $3.13 a gallon. Before heading to Mexico stopped at the only truck stop we have in Del Rio, which due to its proximity to the border is .02 to .03 cents higher than in town...but .14 cents higher?
Have you guys gotten accustomed to the time change? Basically since I retired it has not bothered me, I do not have to be at any particular place at any given time. However, I have fallen back on old vices and it has affected my night time schedule.
I used to love to watch foreign soap operas...my favorites were Colombian and Brazilian soaps...they are more down to earth and credible than Mexican soap operas. Since these soaps are beamed to the border from Mexico City and we get to catch the signal for free, why not? Only problem is that except for the border...the interior of Mexico has not gone on Daylight Savings Time.
Now if I want to go online, I have to do so an hour later which affects my ability to beat Bloggers 2:00 a.m. deadline and still be able to post on the same day. As you can see I have nothing to blog about! :D
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
