Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

In spite of being up until nearly midnight last night, we were up sipping our morning coffee shortly after 6:00 this morning.

We drove over to Bentsen Palms Village to pick up Steve & Cathy at 8:00 and then drove off to breakfast at Diaz Diner. All four of us ordered “Huevos Rancheros” which is our favorite breakfast here in the Rio Grande Valley. Basically, it is two eggs fried, covered with a spicy salsa, and served with Hash Brown Potatoes and Refried Beans, with two piping hot flour tortillas. We politely request that they not serve us the “Gringo” sauce but bring the spicier version, which is fantastic.

After breakfast we took our friends home and they showed us where they will be parked next winter.

Marilyn & I then drove to Penitas to the store for a few groceries. When we returned to the car a Mexican Gentleman who was also loading groceries into his car, pointed at our right rear tire, informing us in Spanish that it was low “Pequino”. (A little) I looked at it and confirmed his opinion.

Right across the highway was a Tire Shop so I drove in and explained our situation. The owner quickly aired the low tire and I told him that I was going to drive home, unload the groceries, and would be right back to have the tire repaired.

I did just that. The owner of the tire shop found a staple, or part of one, in the tire and quickly repaired the leak. Now my “Low Tire Pressure” warning is no longer illuminated.

While I was gone, Marilyn put groceries away, changed the bed linen, and started a load of laundry.

We decided to mostly relax today as I wanted to work on my book. I worked from around noon until 4:30 and managed to get several more chapters completed.

Hopefully, I may get this one published before we leave here.

Life is Good!
