I know I should have slowed down and thought about the details...My brunch guests Gary and CC had 2 dogs(schnausers) with them which they rescued quite a few years ago. Gary was a cop in Chico and CC is his third wife. I forgot what CC did for a living. The air temperature has had highs in the low 80s and at night it gets down to 68 or 69 which is quite pleasant. The water temperature has been averaging 80 degrees fahrenheit. The French lady, Susanne is from Parkerville I think.....between Comox and Sydney. The restaurant that was cooking the turkeys gave it over to a family member in Cihuatlan. So they had to transported to Cihuatlan yesterday with all the spices, bread, and other stuff. So its all in their hands and I hope it turns out OK. They originally wanted $130. to cook the birds using their ingredients and cooking stuff and after I gasped and told her all they had to do was push them in the oven and take them out. So off to the phone she went and after a half hour chatting she came back and said it could be done for $50. We are at their mercy. Last night a palapa/restaurant on Isla Navidad was playing music very loud until 0430 this morning. This is their version of the Christmas spirit. My Princess drew the picture above of her and I on our boat..notice her bunk and mine...love that girl...MERRY CHRISTMAS
