NEXT DESTINATION? We are here for a while
Valentines Day in Mexico is celebrated with joy and enthusiasm. February 14 is celebrated as El Dia de San Valentin, but it's more commonly referred to as El Dia del Amor y la Amistad, the "day of love and friendship"! That means if you want to celebrate like a Mexican, you shouldn't just focus all your attention on your beloved, but rather on your friends and family too! I think I like that interpretation.
Another wonderful morning so I just took my time getting my morning chores done. Guess what happened at 2 minutes to 10?? Yesssss the mechanic and his helper showed up to do my oil change. In no time flat they had the oil drained and the filter off and not a drop spilled on the ground. I was so surprised that I didn't get a picture of the guys at all. One of the reasons it was so fast is because the back end of the motorhome is over a hill and the guys can practically walk under the back end so there was no crawling around in the dirt.
Then it was time to replace the oil. Guess what? After I told them it would take over 20 liters of oil they only brought 2 - 5 liter jugs of oil! Ooops I guess we better get more. On the phone to the boss, they don't have more oil anywhere. Have to get from Compostela which is 20 or 30 miles up the road. Ok no problem. So off they went to get more oil!!! The mechanic was firm when he said "NO START!" Ok I will no start!!!
They came back in about an hour with 2 more jugs of oil which filled it to the add line. Lucky I had another 5 liter jug to top it up with!!! Oh well the job got done. And looking back I realized that they did charge me for my jug of oil in the end!! lol No tip for them!! He was adamant that he will find me an antifreeze overflow tank somewhere so I sent him off on that hunt. How long will that take???
Judy is our decorator supreme and she did a wonderful job of setting up the memorial and invited all of us to bring pictures of our loved ones who have gone on before us. We proudly placed a picture of our Grandson Clayton who is in heaven.
