That would be nice but the only problem would be he would probably OD on Italian deserts and coffee, not the worst way to go. Now I feel like eating a cannoli and the only authentic place is an hour away and closed. :sad:

You know Rich I just had a passing thought.  I'm getting another Z4 this week....this one with 335hp (twin turbo).  Maybe I could buzz on over to Hope in it.

 

=== great idea. Take a few extra days, head north and drive some of the best roads anywhere. Maybe we can talk on it. I’ve ridden most of the those roads a dozen times or more. You won’t regret it —

And the scary part for me, I woke up at 7:30 am for no reason and couldn't go back to sleep, not normal. :mellow2:

Oh I tanned, just had a reddish tint to it.  OK I lie, I burned. I'm done peeling though and it doesn't hurt to sleep on the back.   Oh yeah, back home with clean water and margaritas that CAN get you drunk.  Wasnt impressed with the food there either.   Tried everything from higher end places to locals recs and didn't take a strong liking to anything there.... Wife and I got violently sick for 24 hours as well...

When they say "Don't drink the water", don't forget about the ice.

I'm a "simple man"... We would eat off the taco wagons and thoroughly enjoy it, when we went to PuertoPenasco.  Ya gotta like the soda... Real sugar. No HFCS.. 

The German's did better teaching Mexicans to make beer than the Hawaiians.

I know no ice.... I gambled 😂 and lost. Tacos were solid, but no better than what I get here.  I work in East LA.   Tacos are a staple in this neighborhood.

Does this mean that you are selling your stereo?  

tbh

My wife actually likes my big black Scalas.  That's good. I would hate to have to make a choice HaHaHa

I bought me a new car, so I'll be selling one set of speakers (outdoor setup).   Indoor setup I will be upgrading, not getting rid of whatsoever👍

Probably and that picture you had of the tray of powdered pastries with the cherries on top, it looked good, I had to look away.

Wife and I

Does it feel funny saying, wife.  :smile:

 

What is that picture? I love swimming and snorkeling in the Carribean but don't think I would do it at night when I can't see what's there or especially at night with lights. I have seen enough large fish snorkeling, which is not as bad because I can see them, but in the dark, they can see me but I can't see them. Not that it really matters I guess, if a Baracuda decides to attack you there is nothing you can do anyway.

& I'm ticked..... had to go to the Publix 5 mi north for decent produce (the store, different name in the middle of the 10k sq ft mansions & Lambos a mile away just has crappy sometimes rotten onions, green bananas, $3 stalks of celery) they can keep it.

So I get the good stuff priced right then go to their bakery where I've been able to get canollis without the d*mn chocolate chips in it for three years.... no more! Past couple of months there is always chips in it. To buy the empty shells costs the same. (red faced smiley with steam coming off my head)

 

Was it just that particular Italian family I was a part of for a while that doesn't like choc chips in the cream?

`Cause that is my way now too!

 

I still like the guts with the plain cream, cocoa powder on top of the whip cream that's on top.

The canolli cream is easy to make but the shells... might have to pay for them:(

Might find `em if I looked around, but that would be appreciated!

We've had Greek food supply stores for ever here, got to be Italian somewhere.

There are mexi stores on every corner, they're the most prevalent species here.

When I was up in Elkhart, we stopped at a popular local/homestyle taco stand/restaurant...

  It was very good. The salsa was great. Both red and green. I had pulled beef tacos. The tortilla barely wrapped the meat. $1.50 ea. I had to force the 3rd one down.  

 

 I actually feel good this AM. Had to look in the mirror to make sure I am still here...

Warm weather agrees with me. I've been getting a lot of "golf" in. Take my one club... a #5Whip Sickle.  Played a quick 9 before dark, last night

 Weeds got big... fast.  Thing are starting to come into bloom. It's working its way up the hill. Around Phoenix now.

 

  this kind of weather scares me a little. I know we are going to see a ton of bee swarms.  They are all Africanized. I have a few outbuildings that I could see as good place for bees to settle.
