At a Bar…

I could not take it anymore and gave in and went to bar for a pint or 2 or 3. Makes it sound like I needed it, no I just found out the pub down the block was open to have a seat and have some drinks.It is nice to be out of the house and to see some old friends, its been so long. Every group is at different tables just sitting with the people they came in with and we are way more than 2 meters apart. I am worried once everything is up fully this place will be packed as normal.

Now being from a state that has a LOT of room (Nevada) between cities and even homes,people see to group up at bars and casinos. One of the friends I saw here tonight was so ready for the “restrictions” to be done with and said that Covid was way over done by “the media” and seemed annoyed it happened.

Since I started this post the “casino” part of the bar opend and we got to the pub about a half hour after opening and it was packed. They are only seating so many people at the bar where the gaming machines are so you have to wait in a Q to game. Saw some others friends and it’s nice to be almost back to norm.

Go Outside!

So I was just siting here thinking that I have no reason to go outside for the next few days, we have done the food shopping. The feeling of disappointment set in and I was wondering can I go out to just be outside. Now I know I have been in the house to much, being dispatched from home for the last 15 years now being asked to stay home has me confused.

I have a new car ( new to me ) and I love the sound of the audio in it and I’m sad I have nowhere to go.

Italy vacation dead (Puerto vallarta)

So with the virus that is ragging the planet our plans for a family vacation in Italy soon went to hell. So with that said avoid Orvago when booking any travel. At the last moment we decided that Mexico was a good option since everyone had the days off all ready.

Sierra mountains

The trip started of with a trip from Reno to San Fran via RT80 and a 7200 foot mountain rage and snow. It was slow going but we made it and had a overnight in San Fran so no rush,We were taking the kids back to Puerto Vallarta since they were 16 for the boys and 13 for my daughter. It’s a big difference taking them back 17 years later, the town has grown and so have the kids.

This time we stayed at a “resort” the locals used to get away from time to time. It seemed they were renovating when we got there and the rooms ( 2 bedroom flats ) we real close to the pool and ocean but last on the list to be updated. They only had AC in the bedrooms and the power outlets were hanging out of the wall in some place’s. They had 2 pools one a little colder then the other and lots of kids playing in both.

Donta Pool

We did get to meet some new friends.

All in all it was nice to get out of town for a while and I had a lot of people worried about us getting back into the US, there were no people at the airports and the plane was not full coming back. When I saw what was going on here I was wondering why I left Mexico.
