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!
Easter weekend in Cathedral City includes the LGBT Days celebration in downtown Cathedral City. One of the premier events is the bed race. This year in the 4th annual bed race and it featured the Cathedral City fire and police departments, Del Shores and Ann Walker (of Sordid Lives fame), the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and College of the Desert. There was a great crowd to cheer the teams on and at the end of the day, the fireman pulled off a very close win—just edging out the police department.
The fire department donated the winning prize of 5 beautiful bicycles to the Boys and Girls Club of the Desert.
I hope you enjoy the photos. What a wonderful event in Cathedral City!!!!
Last night was the Dia de Los Muertos party at the Instituto de Allende. Lots of people showed up in costume for the event. Here are a few photos from the evening. Enjoy!
Let the party begin. This evening Bill and I went to Fabrica Aurora for one of the first of many parties celebrating Dia de Los Muertos. We’re told this is sort of a dress rehearsal for the big celebration later next week. There were quite a few folks in costume and I tried to get a few fun photos which wasn’t easy with all the people around. Enjoy!
