Eccentric adventurer in Ensenada, Mexico seeks extraordinary fun in ordinary life and people.

Interesting visitor greeted me this foggy Wednesday morning. The DNA trail is visible for the entire 7 foot climb it made up my glass patio door.
Guessing she/he was as excited about the return of coffee and wifi internet as me.
Mini-dramas greeting me after my 40 day USA drive tour were a plumbing leak, no satellite internet and no propane for stove, water heater.
Thanks to Starband’s helpdesk team of Tap and Augustus, was able to get satellite internet communication back up. Also got assistance via neighbors’ Dorry, Janika and David/Liz internet cafes.
Propane delivery was magical. You can phone and hope that propane will show up in 24-48 hours. I usually just wait for a wandering propane truck that honks its horn throughout our rural neighborhood of 30 homes. My 75 gallon propane tank usually lasts 3-4 months.
Yesterday, I fell asleep on the couch, and was awakened by a knock on my patio door. It was the propane guys to the rescue. Thought their visit was due to me neighbor, who said she would send them over to my house. Not true. They simply appeared. How did that happen?
Everyone knows what a coffee hound I am. So having my french-pressed coffee this morning is a real treat.
Neighbors have warned me about the looming “June Gloom” marine layer that normally dominates our late spring/early summer weather pattern.
I’m ok with they gray sky. Just like a snowy day is a great pairing for escargot chowder, they gray makes the coffee taste better this morning.
Cheers and thanks to all of my neighbor for the help. It is grand to be back home.
