Music on the malecon

The word was given out at the Wednesday domino meeting that there would be lovely old ranchero music played tonight by a group from Colima. The time? A las nueves. Translation: At nine o'clock. Mexican translation: oh, somewhere around 10:30 or 11. I am afraid I am not going to make it.

The Patient is looking and feeling much better today. The swelling in his face has gone way down. It's true it has pooled in his neck, but the lymph glands appear to be draining more efficiently. He has a bit more color now, thanks to the outdoor work he is doing. And his energy level seems to be up, too. Again tonight he ate a good dinner, including dessert of vanilla ice cream. I'm hoping he will be down to one can of supplement a day before long. He has taken on as a project the re-laying of the bricks in the drying yard. I think next year we will have the bricks taken up and have a cement walkway poured. Much easier. But for now he is happily occupied with this chore. He has gone to bed early tonight since he did not get his afternoon siesta. We went over to Jack's for a swim instead. He didn't swim but I did and it was delightful.
