I was up and ready to head for Los Algodones, Mexico at 9:30 this morning. Deb and I are taking Riley for a fun day for her birthday, day after celebration. We noticed when we arrived at the parking lot, it was not crowded, which was good.
Walked in and there were only a few vendors and a small number of visitors. We realized that evidently many of the businesses are closed on Sunday, so fewer vendors and fewer calls to buy products. Much more fun walking around looking at the many that are open on Sunday.
We had a great time walking slowly around and I was looking for things that Dolly might like. I’m not very good at doing that, but I found things that she may like.
We soon stopped for coffee and a rest. The day is just perfect. A slight breeze, plenty of sun and warm. So enjoyable sitting there and watching the visitors and vendors interact.
We finally got up and continued our buying search and I also had several prescription medicines I was low on and wanted to pick up. Down here, no prescription is needed and they are cheap. I picked up three different drugs for under $20.
|Love the colors.|
We then went back to the restaurant and we had a leisurely lunch. In a weak moment, I picked up something for Dolly a vendor was selling. I couldn’t resist it. A big group of women from the Red Hat Society sat down next to us. They were really enjoying themselves.
It was 2:30 by the time we headed back to the states. The best part, there was no line at all. We walked right through carrying all our bags and all went smoothly without a hitch.
Yuma was so happy to see us. He ran and jumped to let us know. He wasn’t happy when I decided to give him an outside bath on this warm day. I had to pull him out of the WL. But he was so happy when it was over and got his treat and a good towel rubbing and finally a hair brushing. A lucky dog.
Dolly mentioned she hoped the second play-off game was better than the first one. I had forgotten it was game day. Turned on the TV to CBS and made myself some crackers, with peanut butter and cheese and watched the game. Yuma and I shared 12 of them. I’m also typing my blog while watching the Cincinnati/KC game. Tied 20/20 in the 4th quarter. This is a good game and is definitely close! Being from Kansas City, I'm for them.
This has been a wonderful and relaxing day with two enjoyable friends: A long and lonesome highway…. We had a fun day after birthday outing in Mexico!

Thanks for stopping by.
You didn't miss much in the NFC game ... pretty ugly! Got to admit we wanted the 'Cinci Bungles', but KC sure deserved the win. Seems like Sunday is the day to visit Los Algodones to avoid the long return lines.ReplyDelete
It was nice on a Sunday. No crowds. That Cincy/KC game was worth the money. At the end, I was rooting for both, they did so well.Delete
Be sure your peanut butter does not contain Xylitol, an artificial sweetener that can kill dogs.ReplyDelete
Dolly checked and there is none and I use Jif. Nice to know. Thanks for the info.Delete
Riley had the perfect day for her birthday celebration. Everything is so colorful in Los Algodones. You got to see an exciting game with Cincy and KC. Don't worry. Jif doesn't contain xylitol.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dolly. That was a great game. Could have gone either way. I liked the Sunday visit to Los Algodones.Delete
I used to give my dog a bath on the day I was changing sheets on my bed. After the bath, I would allow him to jump up and go crazy wiping his face on the sheets, then rolling on his back and finally squeezing between the sheets under the blanket. He went wild doing that after his bath.ReplyDelete
I guess all dogs love to wipe down on things. Yuma wants to get on the sofa, so I rub him down real good with a towel and then calm him down with a good brushing.Delete
A nice way to help Riley celebrate.ReplyDelete
I'm sure Yuma loves the after bath best, like Gibbs.
Thanks Patsy. The after bath is much more fun.Delete
Sounds like you all had a perfect day celebrating Riley's Birthday! Plus, it sounds like Dolly may have gotten a nice something, also. Nice sunset picture.ReplyDelete
I hope she likes the things I got her. Made in Mexico :)Delete
Thanks for enjoying the day with us. The pace was perfect and like you mentioned with only about half of the vendors there it was a nice quiet day.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Deb. I had a good time. Glad Riley enjoyed her dayDelete
You got your wish with KC winning! Love that yellow truck. As of right now we are scheduled to be in Los Algodones on Friday for some dental work.ReplyDelete
I see hat you are slowly heading this way. Told Nancy, when I get to Tucson, we'll have to head for Colossal Cave. Last year, me and Nick stopped by, but I had Yuma and couldn't go in. I'll meet you two when you visit Deb and Riley.Delete
Algodones is not the busy hub on Sunday that it normally is. Sounds like you found some good stuff though, and a quick walk back over the border is always a plus!!ReplyDelete
I like the not busy Los Algodones much better.Delete
Looks like a great trip to Mexico. Nice that it wasn't so crowded on Sunday and you were able to find some things.ReplyDelete
Always hard for me to buy for others. Glad I made headway.Delete
So nice of you to look for things to take home for Dolly. Bet she will love them or at least the thought. BeckyReplyDelete
I hope so, Becky. It is hard to find the right thing, but I guess doing my best is all I can do.Delete
