My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Remedy for the Cold

Remedy for the Cold (that Pearl lives in) ...

Come to Buenos Aires.
Pup will show you how to lie on your belly under the A/C
Copious amounts of water must be drunk then remember to belch then take a nap.
In this order , if you please. ( contributed by Pup )
When going outside, take at least half an hour to slather on the sunblock, then wait an hour for the mess to soak in and only ruin half of your clothes.
Wear sandals, no socks, wash feet at least 10 times a day.
Cars are fine as long as
1- they have a/c,
2- they don't sit in traffic and overheat
3-the driver prefers the windows open, radio full blast...( actually - this was one of my favorite taxi rides.
The taxi driver, Linda Ronstadt and I, singing Canciones de mi Padre .. one of my better moments.- in Argentina, singing Mexican music )



I am sitting in a dark room, sleeping pup by my side, A/C blasting on us .. it is only 7 pm.
It won't be dark for hours !! ack !
But the moon is fabulous this week !!

  1. I feel cooler already.

    :-)

    And Linda Ronstadt's Songs of my Father! It's been ages, but what a lovely voice that woman had.

    I am wearing nine separate pieces of clothing today, and this does not include my earrings or necklace. :-) Like I said before, should a game of strip poker come up, victory is mine!~!

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Skol!

Please do leave a comment though- or else I will feel like I am talking to myself and you know what that means !!
