You Can Lead a Horse to Water

On our way back from Nerja Tuesday, we stopped at Plaza Mayor, a shopping mall about 15 minutes from Fuengirola. The goal: Get San Geraldo a new pair of jeans. Success! He bought two pairs! It was an outlet store with multiple brands. Levi’s were reduced from 99€ to 89€; so he bought two pairs of Lee Jeans for the price of one pair of Levis.

AT PLAZA MAYOR.

I can’t show you photos of San Geraldo modeling the latest royal fashions. But, I can show you some of his acquisitions. I didn’t come home empty handed…. er… footed, either. Papa got a new pair of shoes.

THE BOTTOM PAIR ARE WHAT HE’S BEEN DRAGGING AROUND IN.
(ALL THAT EXTRA DENIM GETS PULLED AROUND BACK AND HIDDEN UNDER HIS BIG SHIRTS.)
FOUR NEW POLOS, TOO.
HE’LL HAVE TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO THAT PURPLE ONE.
LINDA AND I WENT SHOPPING IN TOWN SATURDAY AND I BOUGHT HIM SOME T-SHIRTS.
THE OLD BROWN T-SHIRT MAKES A GREAT PAJAMA TOP… OR BLANKET.
MY NEW SHOES: I THOUGHT I’D GET SOMETHING UNDERSTATED…
… TO MATCH THE LIVING ROOM WALLS.

Below is what I sang in my head as we went shopping with San Geraldo.
(I sound exactly like Earl Thomas… in my head.)
