[Zachary] Quinto Anniversary

Tuesday marked our five-year anniversary in Spain. Fifth is "Quinto" in Spanish. Our "quinto anniversario." So, my apologies, Zachary Quinto really has nothing to do with it.

As for me, I'd prefer five years in Spain (or anywhere) with San Geraldo. When you've got San Geraldo, who needs Zachary Quinto? (No offense, Zach.)

We went out Tuesday night to our favorite place in Fuengirola, Meson Salvador, and had a celebratory dinner with our friends Tynan and Elena — two more reasons to be grateful for our lives in Spain.

Tuesday afternoon, I went for a long walk in the 39C (102F) heat. I'd tell you there was not a cloud in the sky on our anniversary, only that would be a lie.

There was A CLOUD in the sky. Exactly one. But it wasn't around for long.

(Click for bigger pictures... except for Zachary Quinto.)

      And that wing-flapping has brought us a beautiful breeze. Thanks. As for the smiling sun, it usually does around here.

      I'm really pleased with that photo, too. I have a series taken after that with Jerry wearing his dish towel (no hat) because of one annoying fly.

      Thanks. But I'm blocked from viewing it here in Spain! I've searched and have come up empty handed. I'm blocked from viewing every one. I'll just have to imagine it.
