I walked into Centro this morning to do some shopping. This weekend is the St. Michael’s celebration. They’ve had parades and fireworks all weekend, but I thought the festivities were finished. Wrong! They had another parade this morning. I didn’t have my camera, but I managed to get some video on my phone. Enjoy!
There is a new (to me) art installation adjacent to the El Jardin. It’s a large bronze statue of an angel in a boat. It is very cool! Here are a few photos of the angel, the parroquia (church) and a wonderful trumpet man. Enjoy!
It’s been a warm weekend here in the desert, but I decided to head back out to the Living Desert to see how my favorite animals are doing. I managed to get a few nice photos. Enjoy!
I decided to run out to the Living Desert in Palm Desert this morning to see what’s new. They’re doing a lot of construction that (I believe) will be ready in the fall. Anyway, it was toasty warm this morning so the animals weren’t too active, but I managed to get a couple of nice photos. Enjoy!
Today, we lost our beloved Simon. He was only 8 years old and left us far too soon. We will miss him terribly, but we’ll keep him in our memories forever. He will always be “the boy” to us. Rest in peace, Simon. You gave us so much love and devotion. You will live forever in our hearts.
Yesterday was Comic-con at the Palm Springs Library. Lots of kids and parents showed up for the event and some were in costume. The library provided a wonderful assortment of crafts and games for the kids of all ages. Darth Vader even showed! Enjoy.
Last week the Palm Springs Library held their first Drag Queen Story Hour which was hosted by Bella de Ball. It was great fun! The kids made magic wands and crowns. Bella did a wonderful job reading three books to the kids. Enjoy!
On this last trip to San Miguel de Allende, I met up with our friend Kathy in Leon. She was transporting a new Yorkie named Gringo to her friends, Jackie and Patrick, in SMA. Kathy and I delivered Gringo to his new mom, dad and brother Paco. He was such a sweet little boy I kept threatening to steal him and bring him home. Here are a few photos I got of Gringo, Kathy’s dog named Sedona, and Gringo’s new brother Paco. Enjoy!
Kathy and I walked up to the El Jardin one evening to watch the fashion show. Vicente Fox and his wife were there. It was a lot of fun and some very nice fashion. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
I just returned from San MIguel de Allende. I stayed with our friends Michael and Kathy. Kathy and I probably walked about 20 miles during the week I was there, but it was worth every step as we got some really fun photos of the city. Enjoy!
