A fine time was had by all......The Quinta Tesoro de la Sierra Madre continues to return to its previous successes

We are awaiting the arrival of Spring, and after saying good-bye to our guests, we now await others who are arriving in a few days.   Our episode with the folks who left was very pleasant.
    They were extremely adaptive and capable of self-distraction and entertainment.   Their questions were  top-drawer, in terms of intellectual process, and they could only be considered as intellectually top-drawer.
     They intensely investigated the simplest characteristics of the community....walking considerable distance in the near-wilderness and the community, house-by-house gravelled  streets that connect the "secret approaches"  between the Hacienda de Santa Engracia, the Quinta Tesoro de la Sierra Madre, and the Hacienda de La Vega.
     Our guests walked all those spaces, for almost three hours, spotting birds and butterflies - some of whom were of considerable rarity, and generally having a pleasant contact with the folks and the dogs and the cats and the chickens and all such that make a rural community on the edge of civilisation in Mexico.

     After three nights and considerable contact and conversations....including a visit to one the most elegant homes of our little corner of neo-reality.....we had to say a regretful good-bye to our new friends.  Now, El Gringo Viejo is up to celebrate the new 29th birthday of my better three-quarters.  We shall also be preparing to receive and accompany our next clients to the Wonderland that is the Quinta Tesoro de la Sierra Madre and the cultural / geographical area of the Santa Engracia catchment zone of the State of Tamaulipas, Mexico.

We are hoping the Spring "reawakening"
will look like this in a few days for our
guests coming from South Carolina.
     As we regard the ins and outs of the present pre-November General Election period, perhaps it is enough said that we have voted in the Republican Primary of the Republic of Texas, as it allows Republicans to vote in matters pertaining to the other Republic to which we pertain during these days.   Our vote was most assuredly for the Honourable Senator Cruz.

     Bluntly, we regard the horrid clown and demagogue Donald Trump as a pretender, a shallow-plower, and a faded copy of something that came off of the Xerox after printing pictures of the Billy and Hilly Clintons and of Hope and her sister Change.  Imagine, if one can, that there are people so stupid as to believe in a slogan of  "Make America Great Again" after having been sucked in by the "Hope and Change".   Frankly, it means that the electorate of the United States of America might not be qualified to even marginally participate anything like self-government.

    Zombies who are attracted to the notion of "free college" and "free medical" and to the idea that "the rich should pay their fair share" are truly not worthy of the title "citizen"....perhaps even of the designation of homo sapiens.   The Ship of State is taking on water quickly, and is carrying too many people on board who are not willing to bail water and make repairs.

More later.
