Good morning! This is MsTioga typing at you. I receive lots of email from readers asking,
"Are you ever scared about staying out in the boondocks camping?"
"Isn't it dangerous camping in Mexico?"
Many readers write,
"I would not have the courage to do what you do, so I live vacariously thru your blog."
When I first met Jorge back in 2003, right away we both decided that we would not be afraid to do the things we wanted to do. Fear crept close a few months later when I was having mechanical problems that cost a lot of money. That was when Jorge wrote his "Creed" which reads:
"I do not run away from my dreams
because of fear of what might happen.
I have faith that no matter what fate brings me
I shall overcome."
Do Jorge and I ever get afraid? Yes! But right away we just shake that fear off. Because fear has no place in our lives! Actually, if you are going to be afraid of something, it should be of letting fear stop you from achieving your dreams!
That would be a terrible thing to endure. What kind of life would that be?!
8AM - Fence brace.
Chito and Jorge were wondering if the new fence was supported well enough. This morning, Jorge added a fence brace. An old water pipe was driven 5 feet into the ground. The brace is connected to this pipe.
The braced fence.
10AM - Orange U disappointed?
Have you found that oranges often do not live up to their promise? Nice skin and color, and the right firmness. Inside it is often dry. Grapefruit however, seem to be nice and juicy. We love grapefruit.
This morning the view from MsTioga's breakfast table is fantastic. Little Mavicito captured this pic while sitting at the table looking out MsTioga's windshield.
5PM - Heading south Thursday morning.
Did you read in our 2007 Trip Plan [click on HOME below] that we will head south in February? Plans have to be made for that trip.
One of the things that we needed to do, was to provide for the care and feeding of our chuparosas [hummingbirds]. Chito has been very interested in the chuparosas lately and asked for the plastic flower to be moved to his "cuartito" [little room].
In the pic below, Jorge hangs the flower in the cuartito. Do you see Victor thru the cuartito window?
