Missing: 100 Dalmations

San Geraldo watered the plants on our balconies this afternoon. I followed behind to trim dead leaves and flower stems from the geraniums. While I trimmed, I spotted a group of guys in the plaza with their dog — an unleashed, very large, and extremely peculiar-looking Dalmation. I haven’t been downstairs, but I sure hope they cleaned up after him.

  1. Hello Mitch:
    Such strangeness! Perhaps sights like these are a feature of your new country!!

    In the meantime, we do hope that your balcony plants have not suffered the kinds of late frosts which we have been experiencing here, particularly over the Easter weekend.

    1. J&L:
      We've had very inconsistent weather lately (sun, heat, rain, clouds, wind). Definitely no late frosts, but then we didn't have any early ones either. The new plants are thriving and blossoming.

      I don't know for certain if sightings like the above are features of my new country as this is the first person I've seen dressed as a Dalmatian. (More common are Andalusian Hound and Basque Shepherd Dog.)

    1. Elaine:
      I tried to zoom in on the T-shirts. All I can tell is that the bottom part was a list of names. Unfortunately, I couldn't read the cartoon, which probably would have explained it all!

  2. A 'baby' wanted a ride with me on my scooter the other day, he was hot and not just from dressing up.

    It's not a bet they lost, unless you count marrying off as one.

    1. He drove with me for a couple of meters, sitting on my knee. Much to the enjoyment of his friends, and I [I must admit], enjoyed it too.

Share your thoughts and experiences. It's always nice to know I'm not alone.
