Warm but Rainy day

It was a warm but rainy day today. It was not unpleasant to walk as long as you didn't mind getting sprinkled on with a deluge now and then. We did get out long enough to go to Walmart for a prescription. Yes, we do not get ALL of our meds in Mexico. It is a nasal spray I get that isn't available to me in Mexico. It is not expensive in the U S so no big deal.

To back up a bit, this was the weekend of our monthly garage sale. I wasn't too interested but then Kay told me that there was a NuWave oven up there that I had missed. So I popped in quickly this morning and bought it. The owner told me she had only used it once and that was not a surprise to me. There is a learning curve to them and not everyone has the initiative or interest in getting through it. So now I have two. There are times when having two is a good thing. Or perhaps someone close to me might have an interest in it. Time will tell.

It has been raining hard since about 4:00 p m and the swimming pool is filling up. I assume there is an overflow of some kind because it up to the rim but hasn't filled completely. We haven't had this much rain all winter. It has been very warm and dry and quite unusual compared to the last 3 or 4 years. Warm and dry is supposed to return on Monday. We have plans to go to South Padre Island on Monday with Marlene and Bernard. I am really looking forward to it.

Squeak, Birds and Dental Work

Butch tried to rouse Squeak from his nap but he was not enthused. 

The birds love the Gordon's water fountains and we love to watch them.

One of the rings on my dental implants came loose last night so I had a restless sleep wondering what to do and what the ultimate outcome might be. Friends of ours, the Droogmas and the Cleveland's had some dental work done in Mexico and were very happy with the results so I asked where they went and they told me on the other end of the block from Jessica's. 
Butch is playing in a pool tournament in McAllen today so having him take me down wasn't going to work and he was nervous about me going alone. Darlene offered to take me which I was very grateful for and off we went. 15 minutes after entering the office I was back in business. He did ask me to wait 20 minutes for the glue to dry and I was more than happy to do so. So $20 and 20 minutes and all is well!! I was very impressed with the place and the dentist. The place was very clean and looked as though it could be in the US. No hoopla, no paperwork, no waiting and the best possible prices.
Dr. Edggar Contrares was the name of the dentist. Now if I can just get Butch talked into it...He needs a new crown and it would cost him $160.
