another hiatus

The computer repairman returned my computer to me today. Nothing could be done other than electronic last rites.

I will entrust its soul to my brother in Bend to see if any of the hard drive contents can be retrieved.

When you read this, I should be in Salem. I intend to spend the next two weeks celebrating Christmas with family and friends in Oregon.

That means, until I have a new computer in hand, I will most likely be off line having a good time.

But I promise I shall return -- on line and to Mexico.

Enjoy Salem. Other than rain you shouldn't have horribly cold winter weather.

Feliz Navidad y Propero Ano Nuevo!!
Enjoy the holidays with family and friends.
We will wait patiently, and scroll though the archives when the wait gets unbearable.
Thank You for a year of sharing your life in sunny Mexico.

This computer eaten by salt and sand, it´s the laptop you bought just before you headed south in April? I believe so.

Merry Christmas and welcome back to Oregon for a while! You missed the sub-freezing weather, but I would guess you're not sorry about that! I love the Christmas pageant photo you posted. That is a very serious looking Mary.

Jackie -- Plenty of rain here, as you know. But it was a great time.

Francisco -- I hope to be up and running in another week.

Teresa -- Thanks.

Felipe -- The only thing you left out was "the very expensive computer" I brought south in April. You are correct.

JR -- I have.

Gloria -- Safe it is.

Mary -- You too.

Bobo's Mom -- It was a great Christmas.

Irene -- I had my share of freeze in Bend. But it was good to feel cool weather.
