Anyone Have Change For A $200 Peso?

November 21, 2008

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs,

I adore traveling, but there is nothing better than stepping off the bus in Richfield. My heart skips a beat as I get that first glimpse of the hitch on the front of my home I’ve been in Mexico since early October, and even a cultured gal like me can tire of piñatas, mariachi trumpets, and the constant sound of leaf blowers.

So I longed to return to blustery Minnesota! But I almost didn’t make the trip back because the bus in Puerto Vallarta requires exact change! They will also accept payment by tequila, live chickens or small brown babies, but I didn’t have any of those!

Then I started to panic and ran into a café for a cup of Sanka to calm my nerves. That’s when I found this nice young man who had pesos just hanging out of his bathing suit. He was just standing on the counter like he was waiting for me! I thought I died and went to heaven!

So I flashed him a 200 peso and he pointed to his pesos, and it looked like he had quite a few bills tucked away there. I suppose he couldn’t afford a wallet. Judging from his pointing and smiling, he obviously didn’t speak English, so I just helped myself and easily found the right change. Of course I needed to dig a bit for the coins, which were on the bottom.

He was so happy to serve me that he actually started dancing after I got my glove out of his trousers. I adore the Third World!

Tic Tac Joe Is The Way To Go!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs,

Here I sit comfy on the Greyhound, as we make our way back from Hawaii. And if you’re ever taken the bus to Hawaii, you know it’s not the easiest place to get to and from.

Although I adore foreigners I must honestly say that getting back to the United States will be a relief. The Hawaiian people were wonderful to me, giving me a blooming flower for my hair, a lovely floral necklace, a fresh green leafy skirt, and a rather serious sinus infection from all the foliage.

I’m looking forward to getting back to the trailer, where there is no grass, as nothing can grow in my yard since my neighbor Buzz Hovelson spilled 13 gallons of used motor oil from his 87 Dodge Dart coupe. Such a shame, he’d been saving that oil for years, and in one day after the children were trying out their new semi-automatic rifle, it was gone. Oh those crazy kids!

No grass for the next few years, and my tap water with a grayish tint, but my sinuses have never felt better.

So now with all this cruise ship work and their non-stop buffets, I am forced back onto the Tic Tac Joe regime! So for the next few weeks, it’ll be 3 Tic Tacs and Sanka in the morning, 4 Tic Tacs and Sanka for lunch, and a sensible dinner!

Wish me luck!
