Happy Mother's Day Countdown

guess I should cut down on Mom's peach tea. It's affecting my posting.

Here's an early offering for those of us celebrating Mother's Day Countdown:

My favorite lady on her brother's Suzuki 750 "Water Buffalo" ca. 1975, Georgetown, Tx.



You'd have to know Mom to fully get just how funny this was and what my Uncle had to do to get her on that bike.

The TVIP I got in January is good until the very beginning of July. I'll miss the expiry by about a week.

If I tilt in the Sierra and miss the canx window, well, that's the way God wanted it
There's an amusing satisfaction to playing this little TVIP game and winning by maximizing the number of trips and canceling just in time. Must be the miser in me.

Especially satisfying after thinking I lost my TVIP and passport in the recent move.

Buena suerte, Hermano! Hope to tilt a glass with you in Parras on our way down.

Only in Mexico will the tour guide try and get you drunk Bad mistake on my part as I was on a bicycle and had to pedal back to town. I took a nap on a park bench to sleep it off and some dog woke me up later by barking at me as I was napping.

I did three brewery tours in Milwaukee a number of months ago. Shocking how PC they were.

There is a mezcal museum outside Victoria and I need to stop in there some day. Clearly on my bucket list.

Personally, I am not that into wine and brandy but all of my friends are switching to wine and I guess that I need to experience the stuff. Irish genetics and all that. Wine is supposed to be better on the old body than hard likker.

Some of us simply have more pipe to lay than y'all do.

With that said the dating pool out here is pretty shallow. Last Fall I jokingly told one of the managers that I would never date another woman who could speak English and who could cross the border and he started to bug me about setting me up with the wife's niece. I had to be polite but firm because he insisted on dropping her off during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Do you know the first English words that a Latin woman learns out here? "Lawyer." "Alimony." You get the picture.

And she is still beautiful! The moto is nice as well, but I think I like your new "Water Buffalo" better!

Maybe Arte and Andres can post the details, I can't find the email.
I know I had it, must be old age setting in!

Voni Glaves (who a few of y'all know or know of) and friends celebrating yesterday at Lajitas. You would think that the Feds would take the hint and reopen the crossing.
