Wasn't able to make a card today so I'm sharing a couple of more photos from my trip to Mexico. These were both taken at a street market which is held every Wednesday. We were able to visit it before returning to Houston that afternoon. In one you will see me buying a pretty little bracelet for my granddaughter (grandson got a belt buckle!). The other shows veggies and other offerings. At one stall there was a head of cauliflower that was at least twice as big as we can buy here! Notice the "cobblestones" on the street -- you may have to click to enlarge the bottom picture) they're called cobblestones but they are more like the "bull rocks" we have around the perimeter of our house. They make for a very bumpy ride!
We got a call about 3:30 this afternoon from the retirement center where my MIL lives. She had fallen and needed for us to come over. We thought we would just need to help her up but when we arrived and tried to straighten out her leg just a tiny bit she had a lot of pain. So we had to call for an ambulance to transport her to the hospital. After x-rays, it was determined that she did indeed break her hip and will have to undergo surgery tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers!
