The fifth of May
It's Cinco de Mayo! My best Cinco de Mayo was in 2002. That year my husband and I were staying in San Antonio TX for eight days, including May 5. My sister Doris and her husband Michael flew in to spend that time with us there. It was a most excellent visit.
I can't find the pictures right now. But we spent the 5th in the big Mexican Market and there were dancers very much like the ones above.
Doris was already in the last stages of her cancer, but she and I did so much together in San Antonio. Only she and I knew why we chose to meet there. I'm glad I was able to help her visit some of the places that had been important to her when she was very young and in the army there.
I miss her, but I'm smiling as I write this.
