Short Story

Was in Mexico and have been home since early March and since Feb have not posted. Wanted to but just hasn't happened and today will tell what I think is a good story from there.

Shortly after arriving a situation arose that this fellow needed a tooth pulled. Took a couple days to reach that conclusion and an appointment was scheduled. Dentist office with Hernon which was a few steps away from where the bus stopped in Vallarta. It got done along with some in office denture work at the same time. There was no assistant. There was a later visit to tweak things a bit. Yes it was inexpensive and all is good today as Hernon was a decent dentist.

Sometime later maybe a month or more developed a cough mostly at night. Many people had coughs especially children. This was just part of it. My friend/landlord/hiking partner Andres was struggling with the same. Was not a good deal at all. Finally Andres said he was going to the doctor and do I want to come with. Declined as I always or should say generally get better. It was a series of three antibiotic shots sufferer's was given. Think most got the same.

After a couple days and a couple shots Andres is feeling totally better. Me I'm struggling bad at night. Not feeling particularly bad but very difficult to get decent rest. Still thinking it will get better. Andres keeps telling me how good his doctor is and he'll take me into see him anytime. Decline several of those invitations and after a week ten days it's "Andres will you please take me in to see your doctor" hopefully to get the shots he got that fixed him up quickly as I am struggling.

No problem and jump into the pickup and take the short ride into town. Locals refer to Puerto Vallarta as town. We walk right in - Andres explains to the doctor that I have the same thing he had.

Hernon proceeds to give me the first shot in that series of three. It fixed me up and feel good to this day.

Simple Pleasures

Went into Vallarta this morning after several things. It's easy to do. Walk a half mile pay eight pesos and take a seat on a bus for a less than ten minute ride into town where your shopping and/or business is then done on foot. Very easy to get done. There are many just like you. Many.

The things I was after was realized on the ride in are all straight forward but the difference is that it's all the good/better stuff at least to me. Here you go different places for different things.

Wanted some of the yellow mango's seen below. These are some of the best ever. There were six and three got missing to friends on the way home.

Fresh baked bread from this tiny hole in the wall place. There were two loaves but one of those went missing as well. This stuff is veeery good.

Then a bunch of chicken wings. The chicken here is the best. It is always very fresh. Just a treat to have these they're that good.


And here's the lady who sells me my chicky.

My pineapple guy has not been on this certain corner last two times. His pina's are the very best. So sweet and with all the food mentioned it's like with every bite you say "this tastes sooo good". I will take some of that frustration what little there is if any out on the three remaining mango's.

It's true. Simple things that bring a lot of pleasure. Mucho gusto! Life has been and is good.

Four shots took care of a respiratory issue many get here. Returning first week of March. Probably kick myself for that one.

Don't think Fly - only just a little bit.

The Dead Man Wanted Out

Interesting. They ain't shitting this guy. The dead man wanted out. His friends helped. The cops know that too - bet on it. Nothing will happen nor should it probably.

Why do we have to do it like this.

The alleged shooter, Joseph Eric McClane of Clinton, reportedly met deputies outside and told them he had “accidentally shot” Bunch. According to several sources, the shooting victim had been in a wheelchair all of his life and suffered from spina bifida.

How Can You

Drive away like that???

The 23-year-old was recovering from a hit-and-run three days earlier that left her with a concussion, whiplash, three fractured vertebrae in her lower back, a fractured femur and a deep gash on her left thigh.

The good thing is they have arrested a 24 year old uncaring stupid little bitch for this crime. LINK 

Is this type of reaction (running away) something that has gotten worse because of these dumb ass TB programs that show people doing the same all the time even though they seldom get away?

Another exceptional trait our society seems to have. Personally I could not leave someone hurt like that if it were me and I bet you couldn't either.

It's Up Everywhere

Anything to disparage the legalization of marijuana from the 1% whores at AP.

Marijuana use has increased in Colorado No linky

There is no data for 014 when implemented on January 1, 2014. More than that -

Nationally, about 7.4 percent of people 12 and older reported monthly marijuana use. That’s an increase of about 4 percent.

Says 530,000 Coloradans a month partake. My money says there are plenty more than that. This is and has been America's drug of choice for decades. Finally some sanity entered the picture here and in Washington state but let's continue the myth that it's bad because - hey usage is up.

Non Responders

Mentioned before how outwardly friendly the locals have been here in Nagalito. Not just here but everywhere. Including of course the south side of Puerto Vallarta.

From store clerks to vendors on the street including walkers like myself you are likely to be greeted along with a wave and a smile if you don't get to it first. That includes the whole nine yards men,women young and old and the kids as well.

Had no clue it would be like this and I find it to be a very nice part of life that is different back "home". People do a pretty good job of it all in all but not like here.

In the month I have been here there have been four people who have not responded to being greeted. All have been gringos. It's true. Any more I say nothing to what is obvious as I am myself a gringo. Just saying!

Still no whale.

Another Type Of Torture Used Here Across The Country

Glad the choice was made some time ago to not listen to what comes over the tube or to have a tube and pay for the shit besides. One does not need to as you pretty much know what's going to come out of their mouths on most issues whether from the right or the left. As expected the Right loves it's torture along with many Dims.

What the hell else they gonna say anyway - that it's wrong now? No way of course and pretty much Merka going right along with them.

Our jails have thousands and thousands of innocents in them because people confessed to crimes they did NOT commit just to have the mental torture and threats being being used on them go away. That is torture too and has been going on forever in the name of the law.

What makes it even worse is that these badge bastards many times know people are innocent and still charge them.

Very exceptional.

Not thinking about any of this crap. Gonna go look for my first whale and a decent picture or two if I'm lucky.
