    Vagabonds, I am going to try writing stuff ti post, "stories of course. But I won’t be posting them before we go back to daylight saving time. It took me a long time to write those posts that were not from my CD. I was writing from memory with lots of “oops”. I’d have to go back and redo stuff, or get times/dates mixed up. Most of them took over an hour or more to get five minutes worth of reading.I am not a typist. I make a lot of typos, a lot of which i don’t

    catch. I am looking forward to DST, because I can start an hour earlier. I have pictures and bits and pieces of writen
    stuff from the past to go through. But I do want to write more for myself and you guys.
    What you’re reading here is the result of about a half an hour’s writing time. Waiting for March!!

    Hola vagabondos. Yesterday I walked 2 long blocks only to return completely exhausted and out of breath even though I walked slowly. Then I went to the pool, which is shalllow and walked around the pool for a long time. This time I found my walk relaxing.

    In the evening I went to the language exchange at the English Library and sat around the table with 4 very nice Yucatecans as well as a lady from Oklahoma. Afterwards, two of the them, a young Yuvcaten couple, walked the 4 blocks with me back to my hotel.

    Good morning Vagabonds.


    The temp around here got all the way up to 36 yesterday and it’s 27 right now (8AM). I hope it gets a bit warmer today!


    I have been reading “Oliver Twist” lately. Never read it before, and I am enjoying it immensely. I love Dickens’ tongue-in-cheek comments about the institutions of the day such as workhouses. He “praises” policies and attitudes that are so outrageous that he forces the reader to take note of conditions that most people had a tendency to ignore.
    I had seen the musical several times, so when I was barely a quarter of the way into the book and ran out of story that I recognized I was a little surprised. (I shouldn’t be, I know – that’s what Hollywood does.) The good thing is that the story is now all brand new to me. There have been a few times when he uses language and idioms that no longer make sense in today’s world and I really have to think about the context in order to understand it.


    We watched a movie the other day that is a wonderful character study. Humphrey Bogart at the top of his popularity took a huge risk and played a man descending into madness who gets murdered at the end. Also starring Walter Huston. This movie contains one of the classic lines of all time (which was also used in “Blazing Saddles”.)
    Name that movie!

    Good Morning, Vagabonds.


    It is all the way up to 20 already!!!!!! First night in a long time that it was above a single digit. Hooray! However, by the weekend, it’ll get cold again.


    I do enjoy hearing from each of our Villagers……..we all lead such differing lives. I learned to step out of my “shy” self and talk to strangers in the stores or wherever, from Arye. I guess I still have the “city” mentality from SoCal, and need to take things slower and enjoy. Thanks to you, Arye for mentioning it.


    I learned from Jan and Bill to step out of my comfort zone and explore different kinds of books. And, from Slim, the value of the message and not the spelling! And from dkram, david, and woodworker, that just stopping in and say “Hi” warms my heart.


    And, for that movie………..That famous quote is: Badges? We ain’t got no stinkin’ badges!!!!!


    Great movie…….The Treasure of Sierra Madre. You’re right, Jan, that was a risk that paid off for Bogie.

    Hello to everyone. Like dkram I don’t always have anything to say, I just read the comments. Thank you ML for the kind words. Jan, you are colder in LV than we are in Boston. It was 60 yesterday and today is about upper 40’s but will be getting colder by the end of the week. Hope no one has the flu.

    @JanCinLV

    What a coinkidink! I’m reading David Copperfield right now. I love Dickens. It’s a shame that modern readers have almost forgotten him.
