Que pasa!!

I was woken up at 6:30AM Friday with a call from Mazatlan saying I had just won the contest for a case of Chilean wine!!!!!!!!!  This was the contest I entered….amazing odds. What a rush……as you all know I love vino…..really really helped the day get going…….

Day 3 of the crack cement guys will be extending to day 4 & 5 and possibly day 6!!!!!  No worries….no final product…no money!

Got my new and final crown today…still sensitive and painful but I shall persevere!

After all that we went out to redo paint choices, stain choices and kitchen hardware choices.

I forgot my camera but I know you would have loved the shot of the girls in the buggy at Rona ( similar to Home Depot or Lowe’s ).

 Here is the article to my claim to fame! Maybe I should go buy a lotto ticket today?????????????

Have a look at this post to see a wonderful day on la Isla……


Meanwhile….life is perfect day after day on  la Isla….come join us!  This was our last dinner on the Isla end of March…..with that case of wine waiting for me….life is going to be beyond perfect!!

    Hi Contessa,

    I went to a birthday gathering yesterday and the first thing I heard was “a friend of your won the rain contest” – I was so happy it was you that won! That means you can lighten your wine-load as you head South this fall, too!

    Congratulations! (And what was Peter thinking, calling so early?)

      Hey Nancy….just trying to be as popular as you:)) I can hardly wait to try those wines. Some of the folks at Tres Amigos have bought the red but I do want to try the whites.

      Danshula…..I really didn’t mind…..certainly worth getting up for.

      Marty….and I am on Pacific standard time…an hour different….not worries…so are you planning on visiting to try some of the wine?

      Bob……perfect indeed!! Mazatlan time would have been 7:30AM…..I think the fellow was very excited himself………

    Heehee! Winning just about anything is pretty darned good. Winning wine? Damned near perfect.
    Isn’t it pretty early in Mazatlan if it’s 6:30 in B.C.? Just wondering.

    congrats on the big win…and getting your glasses and tooth fixed…whats better to win that a case of vino 🙂

  6. oh yeah a case of wine, excellent, I am sure it will not go to waste, and will have lotsa volunteers to help you out with it.

    Still 7:30 Mountain time is early to call, lol! We’ll be sure to come sample your wine. Irene keeps asking when we’re going again. She was impressed that I knew my way around enough to visit friends!

    Just dawned on me that the white wine I bought and loved in Mazatlan was Chilean. You are in for a treat!
