It has been an interesting couple of weeks. I dropped my smart phone for the umpteenth time and it hit the corner of a table as it fell breaking the screen. No smart phone. Died instantly. I was somewhat concerned that my trip to Verizon was going to cost me a ton of money since you have to pay retail for the replacement, unless you bought insurance and frankly I could not recall getting insurance. Everything turned out okay because I surprised myself and decided to get the insurance so instead of paying over five hundred dollars for a new phone, I got one for the $99. deductible. I was pretty proud of myself for having insurance but wondered to myself why I had forgotten that I got it.
Mia and I leave Seattle and the rain this morning to fly four hours and eleven minutes to sun and warm sandy beaches. We leave for Cabo pretty quickly this morning and arrive before dinner. We have been to Cabo before and it is relaxing. There isn't much to do if you don't ATV, whale watch or scuba dive but relaxing at the resort near the pool or the beach in shorts isn't that bad, is it? There is a scheduled scuba dive but neither Mia or I are interested so when the rest of the folks leave we will strike out to Todos Santos home to many old buildings and missions. They also take credit for the Hotel California (yes, that Hotel California).
Unfortunately the credit is not theirs. The Eagles song first introduced in February of 1977 was supposedly about the excesses and materialism. Much has been written about it including that it is about drugs, a madhouse, an LSD trip or alcoholism While the authors have explained some of the lyrics they choose not to explain their thinking behind all of them leaving the song open to vast numbers of interpretations. I choose to focus on the vocal skills and the complex riffs that the Eagles used. If you never want to leave it sounds like a great place to visit.
Back late Monday night or early Tuesday morning depending on which time zone I am in.
I am looking forward to a much needed R&R.
