No, no, just thought I'd mention it as I'm sure now you've got your creative juices flowing again you won't want to break the narrative.

Not forgetting your adoring fans positively quivering with anticipation for the next instalment.

“Bueno… Tecate con limones por favor.” Happy Rogue.

That's a bad image to leave us with

[/B]I check out the accommodations… and find them wanting. The bathroom is kind of seedy. Outside the bath is a walkthrough closet; shelves line the wall to my right… again because of my height I see something that almost no one else in this country would ever catch… there is some kind of magazine at the back of the deep top shelf.

You should always end you updates with a pretty image...how can I possibly get through my day with that picture stuck in my head. Oh well, I have to go poo anyway.

Don't bet on it. My SPIII is dead after getting waterlogged for about 6 straight hours while trying to get to Barbers this last summer. Grr. Water got in the screen, it went funky, never powered back up the next morning or thereafter :(

Glad to have you back Rouge1. Your first post and mentiong Blaine snapped me right back in like finally seeing an old friend again. I'm still many pages back but about to catch up to it all. just had to comment on the SPIII.

GREAT report...I'm only now catching up to it, but just reading this made me laugh....$1.98 a gallon!

Can't wait to read the rest, you're a great writer and photog and have a knack for telling a story.
