It's almost Christmas!

Susan has arrived or her monthly December visit... and I'm about to leave to visit my family in California and Denver.  Fortunately she's been here enough that she can navigate PV on her own.

 Lots of fun things going on as 'The Season' has into old returning friends daily...more activities than I have time to go to (not to mention parties). Last night we saw The Rocky Horror Show at The Palm which was a kick--since I've been a fan of both the movie and the play I was in heaven having it come to Puerto Vallarta. I had my first short story published and it is available on Amazon....I'll write more about that later and post a link so that you can buy a copy (I'll even autograph it next time I see you!). Since I'm a crazy love-it Amazon shopper I will be listing some of my favorite shopping recommendations so stay tuned. If we are 'friends' on Facebook you will also see my more up-to-date comings and goings.

Last summer saw me at a fabulous birthday party in Beverly Hills...we were not allowed to discuss it in the media but it was cameras allowed either. Snoop Dogg entertained, Charlie Sheen also did a funny roast of our host who was celebrating his 40th birthday. I am told that we can now post some pics of the party so as soon as I get some I will post them...again, stay tuned.

I'm very excited about my January trip to Park City, Utah where I will finally attend The Sundance Film Festival--can't wait! Looks like I'll be able to choose my movies on Tuesday. JOBS will premier there so I hope to get tixs for that one along with some of the documentaries.  Crossing my fingers that I get to see some great ones!

Got to run...another party in PV is still the best!

P.S. Have to tell you about my cruise but that's for another time

Off Subject:

Last October I took a trip to Bangkok with my oldest son, Peter. I created a photo book for him in remembrance of our trip. Just got a $10 Cupocity coupon so decided I needed a book for myself so here it is....BTW it was a wonderful to fly business class on Korean Airline's new "Dream Liner" and it was a dream! note: give the album a few seconds to load...

Did You Think I had Disappeared?

I just checked my blog and yes, it's been a l-o-n-g time since I updated you. 

We just completed what we call "The Season" and the town has quieted down. The slower pace is lovely for a change but it is not as slow as I'd thought it would be. My regular Mah Jongg group that meets at Lindo Mar Resort won't start up again until the fall so now I am meeting with a group at The Sea Monkey...both places are on the beach and have delightful views, nice food  and breezes.

I have also started an intense language class. It lasts 3 weeks and is exhausting. Three hours three times a week and about 4 hours of homework daily. Not a lot of time for anything else. 

I't heating up here so I finally decided to have my car windows tinted--what a difference that makes! I had it done yesterday so the car needs to be in the sun (not parked in my garage) so I'm going to a movie and also parking myself and my homework book in a coffee shop--that should keep the car outside for awhile.

Those of you who have been following my divorce--although it's been over for a long time most of it is finally over with the exception of the properties Ed tricked me into putting loans in my name after consulting with an attorney (unbeknownst to me) and paying himself back for a loan (on properties that he claimed to be his separate property!) his mother made...never mind that my mother made a loan which he chose not to pay back to me. Karma gets you every time and I think it is catching up with him. If you have become his friend on Facebook or LinkedIn you might want to rethink that--just my 2 cents!

As for life here it remains beautiful. The sunsets are amazing, the new friends I've made are wonderful, There's a beautiful view every day from my condo. The pool is at it's best. Friends from Monterey and Los Angeles have been coming to PV and it's nice to have them see my place and enjoy a meal and catch up with them.

Now I'm planning a trip to LA, San Francisco and Denver. In LA I am going to an amazing party but that's for another blog.
