Found something to write about.

Ah yes! Monday and the machines are back. And this one is right up next to the wall. I thought they were done here. Earth was compacted and he is digging it up. I'm keeping a watch on our Internet wire. See the wires looping along the wall, one of them is our now working Internet. 
Beautiful blue sky today and humidity of 83% - ugly out. Temps only in high 70's feels like high 80's.
 See nice and compacted and then he tears it up right next to the wall. Maybe it had a bump there. At least there is no wind so no dirt blowing around.
Yesterday a caravan of 9 to 10 Airstreams came in. Some from US and some from Canada. Haven't seen this many Airstreams together since 1978 when we were in Mazatlan and there was a big caravan of them here then.

 Interesting configuration on the front of this one. 
 The hibiscus are blooming again. Lots of buds 
 And this guy is growing like crazy - hope he will still fit in cupboard to take him home. Speaking of home - winds up to 50 mph there today. 
More from construction site. See the wire looped up  over the wheel barrel handle - I check - not ours. Also using a hand compactor here now - loud! 
 Needed lettuce so got some from the vegetable truck. Nice big solid head of iceburg. The vegies on the truck smell so good. He also has some  bread and today home made flan. 
Bill has been up quite a bit so far today and eating a little more than yesterday. Each day is better. Yesterday early evening he sat outside for a while. Got lots of company from the different RV guys. We both appreciate so much all the concern and help we've gotten from every one here in the park.

Sunrise, sunset and construction in between.

Don't know how often I'll be blogging for the next week or so. How many times can I say Bill is doing better. He came home yesterday about noon. Was glad to be home but still feeling crappy. Just worn out and weak. I had to remind him he hadn't eaten much since Monday. 
This was the sunrise Saturday morning. Just stood outside and watched it for a while. 

 Construction continues all around us. This is what was left of the microwave tower yesterday around noon. Two guys up on tower, another one to guided the pieces down a rope to the ground. 
Last nights moon - wish I'd gotten a better picture of it. But just happened to notice it when neighbors mentioned it.  

These were taken this morning. The  big construction work shuts down around noon Saturday and they stay home until Monday morning. So it is usually quiet here over the weekend. However this weekend the guys on the tower are still working. Not much of it left now.  
 At last the dirt is level with the cement wall so hopefully some of the noise around us will stop. No more dump trucks right here. But still dumping behind us. Ugh. 
 The work on the pigeon holes continues, they are going up fast. Windows in front and back only. About 1 1/2 foot between units. 
 All the compacted dirt next to us. Cant put any more dirt there or it will come over wall. 
Bill is doing much better today after a kind of good nights sleep. He's been up and eating. Thank goodness for chicken noodle soup and fresh fruit. Will get him up again in a little bit to watch a soccer game and get more food in him. Luckily he has had no pain at all. Just feels achy and uncomfortable. I went to WalMart this morning to get a couple of packs of water and fresh fruit and whatever I could find that he might like. He slept the whole time I was gone. 
The TelMex technician came by yesterday and rewired the junction box for the Internet so hopefully it will continue to work. So right now we have two sources for Internet, but only the TelMex works with Dish Anywhere for TV.
He stayed up for the whole soccer game, Barcelona won 3 - 1 it was a good game. 
Not much else to say, will write if have something to say. Otherwise all is well.

I have to stop and think - what day is today. This week has kind of just run together. So my laptop is telling me it is Friday. This was the sunrise this morning. Yep up early enough to watch again. I've been going to sleep around 9:00 so up early. Plus that was the only time the TelMex Internet worked.
Though I have to say that it is now 9 p.m. and the Internet was working when I got home an hour ago and is still working???
The work next door continues full force. Notice how high the truck is Almost as high as the over 6 foot cement wall. Sure will be glad when all the filling in is done. 
 They are moving right along on building the houses too. Be interesting to see how they look when finished. 
 This is the base of the tower they are taking down. Wonder what they plan on doing to it. Jackhammers??NO NO  The dirt is almost to the top of the wall on this side too. In fact they were grading and compacting part of it when I left for the hospital this afternoon. 
 The guys working on taking the tower down. The pieces are tied to the rope and lowered to the ground. I don't see any safety harnesses. They are up there with wrenches and screw drivers!
 Getting ready to take the triangle piece down. 
Spent part of this morning and some of the afternoon in the hospital with Bill. Saw several different doctors. They finally decided he will be able to come home tomorrow. I feel it is too soon as there isn't an easy way to get into the bed in this RV. Might have to open the sofa bed for him. But don't think he will like that. We was up walking several times today and the drain tube was not leaking quite as bad as it was yesterday. His chest is still quite congested but doctors said as soon as he is up and about more it will start to clear up. He finally got a little hungry too. Had some melon and chicken soup. He hadn't eaten since Tuesday noon. No wonder he feels weak. So Saturday should be interesting. 
I have to tell on myself. When I left the hospital this early evening I called our Canadian friend Mark who is staying in a condo right across just down the street from us and asked him if he'd go to dinner with me. Then I at least would have a decent meal. He said sure and we'd meet at the Torres restaurant. Well our friends who went to the plaza on Sunday night are staying in the Torres hotel so I sent them a text. It said, "Going to meet Mark at your restaurant in 20 minutes." Off it went. Got a text back FROM MY SON "Not me."   Crap I sent to the wrong person. So I sent back to son, "No not u."  I wonder if he is wondering who Mark is and why I was meeting him for dinner while his dad is in the hospital. Maybe I should call him.
The Internet is still working...the handyman, Rafael was checking the line and connections from the RV to the pole. He also called for a technician - be here in 3 to 5 days. It wasn't working when I left for hospital. So don't know what happened. fingers crossed as we need that line to watch TV.  So now I have two Internets.
