Buenos días a todos!
So, Why am I speaking in this obviously fluent Spanish? Well, My son's family is coming to visit us here in the Villages. We're taking them to a Mexican Restaurant. Boy, what a Mexican restaurant it is! Best Mexican food I've ever eaten (haven't really eaten that much Mexican food). You walk into the place and you would think you're in Mexico! The place is always packed (Happy Hour - 2 fers from 5 to 7pm) Hot tortilla chips and salsa hit the table as soon as you sit down. The waitress is a real cutie! I mean REAL CUTE! Her name is Feleena. Don't flirt with her though . . . she has a real ornery boyfriend . . I think she said he's from El Paso.
Regarding Mexican Food . . . an old Mexican once asked me . . . "do you know the difference between a taco and a burrito?" I said NO . . . he said . . . "if you can't eat your taco it makes a good doorstop!" Who knew?
The Turntable begins with Fats Domino & The Kingston Trio. . . On The flipSide . . . Are you ready for Christmas music . . . well Burl Ives is!
That's it this week. If you enjoyed Dale's trip last week why don't you let us know. He's going on another adventure as we speak. He's excited to tell us all about it and is keeping that in mind while he travels, camera in hand. (please don't comment on my humerus weekly missives. Don't think I could handle that much abuse! Although, as you probably know, I laugh my butt off!!!)
Well, that's a wrap!
Till Next week / be safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!
