1. I leave tomorrow for the far away land of Monterrey, Nuevo León, México for four days. I'll catch a plane from El Paso, then fly across the border and catch another plane from there all the way to Monterrey.

I love the outdoors, and the pic you see above, El Cerro de la Silla (Saddle Chair Hill), is what's taking me there. I plan on climbing all the way to the top of that mountain and taking pictures of everything below.

If you'd like to learn more about Monterrey, the Youtube video, and this link will tell you everything about the beautiful place.

Mountain Climbing Journal - Cerro de la Silla TWO

When I return, I'll post a few of the pictures I'll take of Monterrey, and of the ones I took of Cd. Juarez, Mexico, and Washington, D.C.

2. I already received my Hit Me Bernie Madoff doll. I'll show a pic of the little rascal, too! :o)

3. Oh! And I now have 5 brand new kittens! :o( I KNOW! I've had all my 20 something cats spayed and neutered! Don't ask me how this happened, because

I'm still in shock, and just can't figure it out!

Have you ever done mountain climbing before? If not, you might want to hire a guide; in fact, with all of that forest there, you might want a partner no matter your experience (don't want you to turn into chow for the local wildlife).

The only real mountain I've ever climbed is Mt. Christo Rey, which is as safe as can be climbing, because it has a little trail you can walk through all the way to the top of the mountain, where a huge cross is found of Jesus Christ. It is extremely dangerous climbing the mountain, because Juarez is close-by, and many have been attacked and robbed.

There's a pilgrimage once every year, and 1000's climb the mountain in huge groups.

Here's a pic of the mountain:

I'll be climbing el Cierro de la Silla in Monterrey with a small group of friends. Hope at least one of them knows how to safely climb that mountain! :o)

That's an incredible view OF the mountain. I can only imagine the incredible views available from the top of that mountain!

Have a great deal of fun and I look forward to the stories and your pictorial when you return!!

I just don't know what I'm going to do. Seeing the dog catcher's truck parked in front of my house a while ago has had me so worried. I've thought of hidding them, but where does one hide kitties?!

Thank you! Hopefully, this will be an unforgettable first time moutain climb :o)

Hugs back to you!

Had I been able to climb that mountain, I would have been in 7th heaven, only because you climbed it with me!

You're friend is very lucky to live there, because the place is absolutely beautiful!

That is where we will exchange our wedding vows. I'll be at the bottom in my wheel chair shouting up and you can be at the top shouting down. Oh and send me a picture of your butt so I can remember why we are getting married. I mean you did promise to sit on my lap from time to time didn't you?

I repeat, that hairstyle must go! Whatever happened to my fiance, the one who used to wear that sexy derby hat? huh?!

And how could you?! HOw could you forget that I've sat on your lap dozens of times? Could it be you've been cheating on me?

I didn't get to go to the mountain top!

I've had my wedding dress hanging in the closet for over 2 years! One of these days, I'll show it to you. You're gonna think it's perfect, and will come very handy on our honeymoon. heeee

I say you hadn't sat on my lap. I've just said that you have been going all over the country and out of it too, so it's been a damn long time since I've felt yer butt in my lap. I kinda miss your butt. Oh and the rest too. But, mostly as you well know I miss your face.

Too bad she doesn't have black hair, otherwise, she'd fit me to a T!

I love it!
