FYI for the Ladies in my Age group

I checked out the farmacia while over the boarder the other day and I found premarin cream for $25. It’s generic, same dosage as Premarin as that costs a copay of $100.

I don’t know about you but I sometimes have an uncomfortable dryness causing irritation and a while back went to get a rx filled for premarin and was told my copay would be +$100 . I left without it .

Just thought you’d like to know.

I plan to go back for some dental care soon.

The entry we took to get into Mexico was not large, close to Demming NMNM 11 Columbus, New Mexico Palomas and we only waited a short time to get through customs on our way back, it’s about a 2 hour drive.

I used my small passport good only for Mexico and Canada much cheaper than getting a regular passport but limited.

Tiles,Tiles,Tiles for GG

I bought another box of tiles, my last I think as I have no more places to add them without looking like I have no better ideas in my head. They are everywhere. At the entry between the stairs, over and under the fridge around the bathroom door, in the bathroom over the entire wall, backsplash behind the stove and photos as though as tiles on the edge of the loft. I suppose I could put them on Jose’s table, even cover the interior water tank under the table. Or even on the sides of my bed, that could look cool, so now it’s a matter of where I don’t have tiles, yet. I put the tree tiles at the instep of the stairs at my entry, looks fine.

Ain’t life grand.

The Land is Getting Beautifully Green but the Wind!!!

I was concerned that I could not be happy in such a brown environment but  driving south to Las Cruces I saw that Spring is here,  I see green patches of green grass and budding trees. In celebration I bought a gardenia plant that smells wonderful.

 Life is good.

The ride was 60 miles in my smart car, made me smile when I filled the gas tank for the first time,  and it cost $20 to fill the tank.

Today we’re having a red flag wind day with winds of35-45 with gusts of 60-70mph.  I can really feel it in my RV and would not think of driving my smart car.  The wind blew my new large and heavy patio planter off the picnic table, the one I bought in Mexico that must weigh 10-15 pounds, it didn’t break!

Today I tried cutting tiles with my Dremel, what a mess I made.  it was too windy to do it outdoors plus I had to keep measuring, not a pretty ending.  I had several spaces on my walls that needed  irregular sizes plus I put white wall tiles on my bathroom floor figuring why not. My hands look terrible I have abused them in all my works, I finally put on gloves today after the damage was done, I broke the bit and winged a couple fingers but I did wear a mask. I have tile dust everywhere on everything and me, my hair doesn’t move, it’s stiff with dust, means I’ll have to take a cold shower later, why a cold shower>  Cold shower because I haven’t been able to get the pilot light back on after we turned off the gas when we took out the stove and I refuse to ask for help cuz I need to do this myself.

I tried to fix the bathroom door latch, it looks unusual and old and messed up and unrepair able which is a shame because it’s cool and efficient when it worked. But really, I don’t need a lock on the bathroom door, it’s just me here and when the door is closed it’s pretty tiny in there, so I need to cover the holes made in the door, see what I mean?

 First try with convection oven failed. damn

had problems with corners
bathroom door minus the latch, may have to cover the space t with a tile!
