On our second day we drove to La Mesilla, a nice town with a lot of Spanish influence. Plenty of adobe style homes, Mexican restaurants, plenty of quaint shops, and a nice town square. At the head of the square is the Basilica of San Albino. Debbie purchased a new shirt and I got 2 pair of jeans, and we both indulged in some chocolate at The Chocolate Lady. We ate at the only Italian restaurant around, owned by John Pullaro, born in New York City, but grew up and owned 3 restaurants in Ybor City/Tampa, our former home. We had a nice visit with him.
We are now heading back toward Hemet, California for a month, then 6 weeks in Mesa, Arizona, (while we fly out and back to New York and to Tampa for the holidays) and then back to Hemet for three months. While in Hemet, Debbie already has us set up to visit two or three TV shows, The Doctors on 10/19, The Talk on 10/31, and hopefully The Ellen Show prior to 3/31/13. Debbie has been trying for over a year to get Ellen tickets.
