We didn’t wait for 2016 to come to us. We lurched into 2016 somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. Entering another time zone, one moment it was 1142 on 31 December, the next it was 0042 on 1 January. We landed in Madrid on the morning of the New Year’s Day. True to a famous musical number, it was raining on the plain.
We missed practically all the nice winter weather back in San Antonio for the month of January, hitting Spain’s southeast coast in four places, plus Córdoba, Sevilla and Cádiz. Here are some highlights:
Nearly four weeks on the go nearly put us under. The month of February was mostly crash time. Come March, and our major adventure was ditching cable TV and going to Internet TV. I posted a story about it.
The peace and quiet ended on 12 April. In the middle of the night the sound of thunder was monstrous hailstones pounding on our roof. The tale of dealing with the insurance company made another movie and also some videos.
Hot summer in San Antonio, surprise, surprise! Came fall, and it was time to get out of town. Our niece, daughter of my sister, finished up a long service in the Air Force and retired in September. This had the appearance of a great excuse to take a driving trip. Here are some links.
We wrapped up 2016 (almost) with an outing that included my brother and his wife. Some more photos. See the links.
We will revisit this page as the year draws to a close. Come back later to see what we have added.
