Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Missing the Birds in my Back Yard


I've been missing the birds in my backyard in Conroe, Texas. I've heard lots of birds here but I caught a glimpse of a really pretty one several days ago. It had a bright red head and breast with brown wings. Today I saw him again and had my camera at hand.

My latest adventure has been riding the local buses. My rental house is in San Antonio, a village that is east of Ajijic; I rode the bus into Ajijic to meet at friend at the Wednesday Street Market. Didn't get any pictures -- will have to share some another time. We went to a "Mom and Pop" restaurant and had chili rellanos (spelling?) that were very good. Then spent some time walking around, looking at shops, and having a good time chatting until I had to get back home.

Will try to get more pictures while I'm out and about tomorrow!

What a beautiful bird!! I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but I put a bird feeder right outside my studio window and I have a dove and some other tiny bird that has been visiting!! My cats are dying to get out!!

Sounds like things are going well my friend!
