Oops!... missed a few days thanks to a head and throat cold! Yuck! On the bright side of leading quiet days...I have finished two paintings and currently absorbed in the third of a new series.

This morning we met with our "No Trump Zone" group again.

Of course the discussions were full of Trump's "shithole" comment. 
This man continues to demand top billing on daily news despite his despicable behaviour.
Most of our group still managed to smile for the camera!

Later that night we walked through town for the Artwalk Shuffle...

...and stopped to view several of John's paintings at Contempo Galeria.

Both of us are struggling with the cold bug quiet days.

Another bus ride into town this morning for John's visit with his Cardiologist...
...and I couldn't resist capturing these images.

This afternoon we hopped on the bus into town again for John's training session at the gym.
I relaxed with an iced coffee at the Mercado, 
a quiet retreat from the busyness of Puerto Vallarta's streets.

When I take the time to sit and look around...
I see the beauty in colour and form and shadows.

Yesterday morning we had a reunion with the "No Trump Zone" group at Dee's. It was a mini celebration of the new publication "Fire and Fury" which our group hopes will add fuel to the demise of President Trump.

 There are new t-shirts available in PV that carry the following message 
"elect a clown - expect a circus"...and piƱatas in various sizes.

Shelly left us yesterday...heading back to Gibsons and the cold!

Today was the first painting day...canvases prepped, brushes waiting.

Tonight we attended a "PINK" party at Jan and Bill's condo overlooking Banderas Bay.
I was one of four women...the other 50 attendees were men in pink!!

Yesterday we bundled ourselves into the car and drove into PV 
for a 5pm show in the Red Room featuring Diana Villamonte. 

She was amazing! What a voice!!!
She sang her way through tributes to Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, 
Shirley Bassey, Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, Etta James and many more.

In February she will entertain us with Tina Turner songs at the Red Room.

More shopping today after visiting a Dermatologist for full body scans. She was very thorough and it was interesting to see body spots on the screen while she gave an analysis of what we were seeing. It was an expensive visit to a medical specialist...700 pesos (leads than $50)!

John had his first training session at the gym with Tito 
while Shelly and I toured the multiple booths that were set up along the Malecon. 

The "pop and beer can tab purses" were set up on a table 
so we had a chat with the creator of these wonderful bags. 
(my apologies for the tilted horizon)

Newly discovered art!

Some of the daily news choices!
