Ignacio José de Allende y Unzaga (January 21, 1769 – June 26, 1811), born Ignacio Allende y Unzaga, was a captain of the Spanish Army in Mexico who came to sympathize with the Mexican independence movement. He attended the secret meetings organized by Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, where the possibility of an independent New Spain was discussed. He fought along with Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in the first stage of the struggle, eventually succeeding him in leadership of the rebellion. Allende was captured by Spanish colonial authorities while he was in Chihuahua and executed for treason.

After tennis did a few chores in and around town and then was home for a few minutes before I went for a visit with my friend Sharon, who is also my land lady…we have not seen each other for a while so it was nice to catch up on things in our lives…..then into town to buy some veggies and fruit and home in time to cook some potatoes before I left for my evening yoga class which I always enjoy…..

Now home enjoying watching more live tennis from down under….still a bit cool in the evenings and before the sun comes up but during the day very pleasant.

Yashi Kochi!!!
