Smiles of a Child

All of us at one time or another have looked at a famous person and thought, their life must be wonderful and exciting. Or how exciting is would be to join the Peace Corp.

Food and Two Trucks

As we roll back our trips to Mexico to every other week this year it seems that one truck will not carry everything we need to bring. The four large coolers were filled with frozen meat. And one small cooler about the size of Brenda’s freezer was loaded into the Dodge. The 275 gallon water tank and two large chairs filled Leslie’s truck. The old Chevy had a 6 burner stove and a two foot gas griddle that we picked up in San Diego. They were to be picked up by a team from northern CA on...
