Happy Cinco de Mayo
I love Cinco de Mayo. First of course, there's the food. I love it. But the entire thing is fun. If you're in the right place.
The best Cinco de Mayo I've ever had was in 2002. We were in San Antonio. Niks and I were on one of our long road trips. My sister Doris and her husband flew to San Antonio and met us there.
I scanned some photos of Doris and me in our sombreros at the Mexican Market there, but you think I could get them to upload to blogger? Noooooo. Sh*t. That blogger.
I guess they're too large.
All I can say is you missed a real treat.
Of course we toured The Alamo and all that good stuff.
Doris especially wanted to see Ft. Sam Houston again. She spent a year there when she was 18.
Only Doris and I knew why it was so important to her. That Doris. Rascal.
She was terminally ill at the time of this visit to old San Antone. But she still had a couple of years left. She and I spent much of that time together.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Have a drink on me and Doris.
