Yesterday I was getting ready to go see my doctor when I lost my balance (should be around here somewhere), fell, and hurt my back.   I didn’t go to Avenidas today, and I’m taking it easy, as in practically nothing.  I hope I feel better tomorrow because Cliff and I are scheduled to visit our friends in Salinas, about an hour and a half away.  In the mean time, I’m wrapped up in an elastic bandage to keep me moving.  Not exactly a lot of fun.

But for a bit of fun, try this:

Everyone says that looks don’t matter, that money doesn’t matter, that age doesn’t matter.  But I never met a girl yet  who has fallen in love with an ugly old man who is broke.

A little white duck adopted a family of swans.  It swam with them, ate with them, and even adopted their mannerisms.  The locals came up with a nickname for the little duck:  Swanabee.


  1. Ouch, and I was just going to suggest if you were feeling up to it you should see "The King's Speech." Actually, if you're going to be in pain at home you might as well be at pain in the cinema and see this fantastic award-winning (or about to be) "filum."

    I had the darkest of the grey hair when I went, and even though I was the youngest, was the only one who needed a loo break.

    If you can see it, see it.

  2. Ouch! Heal quickly! I took a good spill a few days ago and found my balance was a little more off than usual for a few days. Better today. I hope you two get your trip south!
