Family news

Lolo visited his dogs at the farm yesterday.

I went to the bank and after a long wait got the money but forgot my passbook, so we had to go back and get it.

We went to Waltermart to get Lolo's medicines and goodies (the have siomai wrapped and with crab that tastes a bit like Sushi, for Lolo, and we got pizza: kiosk pizza with a thin  layer of tomatopaste and cheese....Chano said it was real cheeze, so it's not as bad as it sounds).

The Hobbit was opening, with a 2 pm show, so we went back at 2 to find the film had just arrived and since the movie theatre had just reopened after being renovated, they still had to prepare to show the film, so the film wouldn't start until after 4. Sigh. Ruby homeschools and her teacher comes at 5, so we probably will postpone seeing it until next week.

Since I had money with me and we were at the mall, we went to the department store and I bought Lolo some white teeshirts (his are getting holes) and a soft pair of black chino shorts (it's hot season and the jeans type shorts are hot).

This weekend starts the "Simbang Gabi", the nine days of early mass before Christmas. Lolo used to go, but now is too frail to do it. I never could get up at 3 am for a 4:30 mass... After the mass, the young folks go and hang out at the central plaza two blocks away...and get food from vendors or from Jolibee across the street.

Chano is still having back problems, but Joy reports most of the Christmas rice has been delivered and is okay...hopefully we'll have enough income to plant the next crop (the dry season crop) without breaking into Lolo's savings.
