Stuff just keeps happing

This morning started out okay I got up early fed my kitty and she seemed to be in fair shape for a change and took my meds. I then I got dressed and went for my walk to the beach. I noticed we had a lot more gulls this morning than usual and that we had an RV camped on the beach from Austria! There was one other camper using a Volkswagen van and that was all  of the campers. The walk went well no major huffing and puffing up the hill. When I got back to the house I had breakfast and got ready to go to town. Today was Spanish class, go by the mechanic‘s shop to have him check out my car and go to the Mexican DMV to get another license.

Once I pulled out onto the highway on the way to town I felt and saw the RPMs quickly rise up and I knew the car was in trouble. I coasted over the median and headed back to my house. I drove slowly to keep the car moving and made it almost into my yard when the transmission went out! So now my car is sitting partly in the road and won’t move. I can’t push it enough because of the sand and I don’t want my elderly neighbors pushing it so there it sits. I switched vehicles and drove my little GEO Tracker to town and met with the mechanic and arranged to have him take it to a place to have the transmission rebuilt ($$$). Then I went on to the Mexican DMV where I got my new Mexican driver’s lic.. It cost me 570 pesos or about $50 for five years and the ugliest photo ever OYE! I then went on to Spanish class where I might have understood about half of what was going on, sigh! Finally I had enough and went for brunch at my favorite restaurant where I (at last) got everything my way,  breakfast was 35 pesos which included coffee or a little less then $3.00 for two eggs, toast and potatoes 🙂

I stopped for a little shopping on the way home and when I got here my car is still sitting in the street at an awkward angle and the mechanic hasn’t shown up and most likely won’t today. I’ll have to put some light out there tonight to make sure somebody doesn’t run into it!

The fun just keeps on coming!
