Vino el Amor #76; Wednesday, February 15, 2017: Blessings, parties, thieves, and guess who came home?
I always enjoy your sage advice “[Marta better get a grip here and give her daughter the freedom to choose her own man]” especially. And I appreciate your translating so much of the dialog.”Luciana adds, “I too am dying to just shout out to the four winds that I love David.” Well, I guess she is tepid about David no longer.
I was pleased to hear that Luci is finally a bit passionate about her man. However, did “David says, “That is not going to happen. Everything will be fine” strike fear in anyone else’s heart. Surely, those words are the kiss of death (so to speak).
“Marta says, “No, that can’t be!” Of course Marta is projecting her own bad experience on to her daughter believing it’s the same thing”. Very well stated. I was very relieved she finally accepted them as a couple.
Juan had the unmitigated gall to cast suspicion on Miguel to the detective? Sorry, but David should have fired him on the spot. I fear that won’t happen until things take a catastrophic turn for the worst, which by the way, seems imminent. Sigh.
Luci turning the tables on Fer by asking what she would do if she didn’t like who her father was involved with was a good move on her part. Fer is being far too coy about Tano – she knows what her father’s reaction will be. That said, David doesn’t seem too prone to listening to reason, does he?
Was Graciela really expecting a hug and a kiss upon her return? I was shocked she was so obviously peeved and put out by David's reaction, thinking she was Luci. What happened to the (fake) sweetness and light she was showering on David? Didn't anyone tell her you catch more flies with honey?
I suspect Fer's party is going to be a disaster. As I am always wrong, I will likely be so in this case as well.
Thank you Cynthia!
"She’s not so sure she wants to go because Lilian will have a cow"
Luciana used the back at you tactic same as Fernanda did with Lilian. It works. However, Luciana should be concerned their budding friendship is fair weather.
While I certainly didn't expect Marta to flip after flipping out it is better to make nice. A falling out would continue to beg answers, who was he, when did this happen, what happened, why are you so embittered, Marta?
Gosh I can't remember but someone pointed out Lilian didn't really care for the grandkids only wanted a nice place to stay. Well duh.
Errr, I want to kick Juan in the Juans.
Hmmm, Mark messing with Perla is beginning to show.
Ain't no bite to David's bark Juan.
Never considered Tijuana in lieu of San Francisco but it'd work.
Oh, almost forgot, Luciana loves David. TOO.
Tofie, " I want to kick Juan in the juans." THAT made me spit out my coffee. Ha that might really turn him into NOJuan. He foolishly keeps baiting MIguel, and I think that it is only a matter time before Miguel is going to go all BSC on JUanny.
Wait..What..That was a mighty sudden turn around that Marta did. How \why did that happen?
You can tell that we are slowly moving to the finale..vest reruns.
Guys actually do break up with women if their kids don't want them to date. I have seen this happen.
So no mention of ERica's ..Cough...Poor health?
I watched through most of the Martyra Mashup, got pissed and turned it off. Turned it back on at 9:55 in time to see white painted nails cover David's eyes and didn't miss a thing
Look David, either grow a pair or spend the rest of your life being neither gender.
Marta sure did flip, but I'm just glad she won't be kvetching to Luciana anymore.
Any voters for Gut, then against him, then for him again all because of Lil are nuts. David already scoring 0 for not being able to fire Juan and make it stick. If he starts supporting Gut again, argh! Lu better marry this man so she can save his business for him.
Perhaps Marta would be happier in the good old days of arranged marriages. Then she could pick her daughter's husband and trade her for a bunch of goats. David says to Marta, "Please forgive me for not talking to you first about this" - to hell with that, he doesn't owe her an explanation!! But then she suddenly calms down and accepts it? Doesn't that seem odd? I am suspicious.
"They all laugh and giggle like girls that age do." Hah, I remember being a senior in high school. We didn't giggle. We were desperate to seem "mature." These girls seem so young.
Diana, I also think Fer's party is going to be a disaster. Perhaps we'll both be wrong... but it seems like a golden opportunity for large-scale mayhem.
Perhaps Marta changed her mind because David finally manned up and said clearly and plainly that he loves Luci and wants to fight for her. Before this, hasn't all she heard were wishy washy confused feelings from Luci? Not much for her to get behind supporting.
He looks like one of the guys who always tries to pick me up in bars until my girlfriend comes back from the bathroom.
Whatever in the fork happened to you long ago didn't scar you too badly. Who can forget recently when you told Brian "I am just not ready yet" And we didn't realize that meant you hadn't quite gotten your panties off yet? We were thinking weeks, you were talking seconds!
Now you want to pass the misery down to your daughter? Go fly a kite.
She annoys me.
As as good as that recap was, Cynthia: not a word about Susan's epic WTF faces in the background when Juan was accusing Miguel of sabotaging the wine? Next to Leon offering to work Fer's birthday party in order to be with Sonia, that was the best thing in the episode!
Well I'm coming to David's defense --sort of. Yes, he is indecisive, but he has many, many qualities (hair, body, face, smile, etc.,) that make him the man he is! Guapo!!
Anywho, at work, will read comments later. Just wanted to say David looked like a chicken when DisGracie turned those icy, glaring eyes on him. When she demanded to know what was going on with Luciana he said, "nothing!" WHAT? Guess he wants to tell her in his own way and not feel like he responded to her bitchy grilling. Anyway, he better show more heart (and other items of male anatomy) when he tells her he loves Luciana and to back the hell up! Uuuuf!
Later! Thanks, Cynthia!
As much as we find Marta's attitude about Luciana's relationship with David really out of whack for our time, in Mexican culture it does still exist. There are still some families I am aware of that still do the "you must as my permission to date my daughter" mentality.
Diana, I hope Fer's party is very successful. If it isn't, Lil and DisGrace are sure to blame Luciana for it. I'm tired of Lu being blamed for everything that goes wrong.
As for DisGrace's homecoming, I am puzzled why she thought she could play "guess who" from behind and this would work to make David "not mad" at her. She has already been telling Fer that her father was angry with her for some reason. You don't play those games with a guy who might be upset with you for some reason. She's already heard the "we need to talk" from David, so she should not be playing games right now.
Yeah, going to Tijuana to find a valve for the wine tank seems really out there to me. Is Tijuana a leading manufacturer/distributor for wine tank valves?
It's hard to follow up on the comments with anything new. All of mine have already been covered. The biggest one, I agree is Marta's 180 into BSC to Querida supportive Nuera--for whatever reason. I guess there's no deep dark secret to her affair with Fernando and David and Luci are not related by blood. So, it was all projection? Bah, humbug.
I wonder if Miguel and Erica will have problems at the border when they try to return with a valve part in their carry-on luggage. They are "Flying Down to Rio-Tijuana, after all." I don't think the police detective lost any time putting Miguel on the Watch List.
Juan and Mark are planning to take drug-store medicines to Mexico as their first big haul? Gimmie a Break. U.S. citizens I've bumped into on the border go TO Mexico to get cheap medicine. Mexicans come here to buy stuff from Tar-je and Wall*tart to take back home.
Anita: I'm hoping our sweet Erika is around for the Gran Final.
Tofie: Enough said on your comment about David & Graciela.
Susanlynn: I'm scared for Erika too based on her lung problem.
Sorry for the error above, I meant Marta is going to be David's Suegra, not Nuera.
I hope that big Valve Factory by the HAMPTON..:-) Inn in Tijuana has the part Erika needs. The Valve-O-Matic, right? I'll Google it to be sure.
Fer is gradually coming around. Of course that can be undone in the time it takes for a couple eyelid flutters with Succubus back in town. Dave needs to shut her down.
Some chick years ago who had no chance with me was pestering me unmercilessly at work. When she asked me to give her a ride in my 4 wheel drive truck I told her I'd be glad to as soon as I got that old refrigerator out of the back. Problem Solved.
When it dawns on Fer and David that all this time with the "family" bullshit from Graciela the murderer of Lisa, there will be some hate we have never seen before. I wonder if either Dave or Fer will come unhinged.
I mean, the Chickens are coming home to roost at some point!
When Disgrace put her hands over Dave's eyes and purred "Guess who!"... I so wish he would have said " Let it be anyone but my sister in law."
BTWay did anybody see the shoes Carita had on the other night? Evan a high priced stripper would have had trouble with those. I call them the 'Stripper Stacks'. The shoe bottom at the ball of her foot had to be three or four inches thick and the heel another 5 or six for a total under her heel of a good eight inches or more.
