Progress is being made

Kathy is retired!  Last Wednesday was her last day at work, and on Thursday she flew out for a weekend with 9 women friends she has known for 35 years.  She flies back tomorrow.

She will spend her first months of retirement preparing the house for the market and our belongings for the move to Mérida.  I will keep working for a few months.  In November we are going to travel to Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Mérida and perhaps to down near the Belize border – to Mahahual and Xcalak.  The southern part of the trip depnds on whether we are looking for a rental in Mérida as we prepare for our move.

The timing is not all settled yet, but it is possible that the move will happen in November.  Depends of a thing or two the timing of which we do not completely control

That is the short version of the news from the Northwest.
