Soon we will get into grapefruit season and the mandarinas will be forgotten, then cantaloupe and watermelon, and then grapes.
Last week we got a call from our friend Tina. Someone she knew was moving his RV, and was tearing up his patio. Did we want the patio bricks? It was 16'x8', and he was asking $100 or best offer.
We hustled over there and closed the deal for $80. Joe, the owner of the bricks, had his crew load them into his truck and deliver them. I immediately called Oswaldo, and he got a crew over here the next day.
I knew I didn't have enough of them, but we decided to just do the large area outside the back door. Here are the shots I took . I haven't taken any with the furniture in place, because it's too cold to wash it all off and make it look all shiny.
Nice bricks, and they really go with the house. Later I'll post some better pictures.
We've had some of the coldest weather of the entire winter this last week. It's going down below zero overnight, which is unheard of. I feel so sorry for people without heat. I had the neighbor kids in to watch TV the other day and warm up. Sorry about Shadow- the kids were being so well-behaved that I didn't want to disturb them with another shot.
I'm still going for my walks on the beach- here are some pictures of Las Conchas homes which are still sitting empty. I wish we could somehow get the people who are living in plywood shacks into these homes for the winter. I might think differently if I owned one of the homes, of course.

|This is what erosion will do. This house used to be a lot closer to the beach!|
