* Mexican Folk Art ...

Guess What?  I know nothing about Mexican Folk art or this handsome fellow.  I only know, he lives with me, and keeps me company in my temporary lodgings. He performs in the early morning between 3:00 am and 3:23 am.  It's something I have been exposed to before, however, have never studied, or learned much about it.  I would like to, and probably will now that I am here.  I'm sure it's a fascinating subject.  I have seen this sort of dress at festivals .. years ago in Mexico city.  I remember them dancing in a circle, lots of fire works and of course, music!                                                      Very quiet day today.  I think I needed it.  My mind was a little boggled last night and I was cranky.  Usually a sign I need to take a breather.                                           I didn't budge out of bed until 2:00 pm!!!  Oh, I was awake.  Calculating budget for the house, what I would need to purchase.  Answered e-mails.  Wrote e-mails.  Talked on the phone.                                              Finally at 2:00 I felt like moving.  It was a glorious day.  Clear blue sky onward and upward forever.  I took a lovely walk.  Down to the Jardin.  Spent an hour of so having a "Limonada" in an outdoor cafe people watching.  Eye Candy was available today.  Mexican policeman riding his horse .... hmmmm.  I walked the long way home.  Stopped for some fresh avocados and mangoes.  Yum.        Tomorrow I am going to Delores (the ceramic and tile city) with people whom I have never met.  Last week I put a note on one of the popular San Miguel sites asking for advice on where to look for old doors.  Consequently, I was invited to go to Delores with a couple who are taking their father in law there for the day, will be going to the factory shops and are stopping at a wonderful place outside Delores who stocks old doors!  What could be better!  This place is amazing.  So, tomorrow I will be going on a little adventure.          I'm still tired tonight.  It's early to bed, and up early in the morning.  I will report on my excursion tomorrow.
