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.

A New Adventure

I've had another adventure, friends! I had to vacate my house yesterday because bees decided to move in. Now, I realize my grandma name is "BeeBee" but there were more than two bees buzzing around my place yesterday. It started with two, and ended up with a swarm! At first I was just shooing them out the window, wondering if I should call my property management lady (Sarah). When the bees really started swarming I just wanted to holler "HELP!". The Lord smiled down on me though, and I saw Sarah's car coming down the street. I ran outside and called her name -- she heard me and backed the car up and I said "They're everywhere!!". We stood outside and watched the bees swarming, just as thickly as inside the house! She told me to pack up quickly and she'd arrange for a taxi to take me to a bed and breakfast. So, that's where I am now. The bee exterminator cannot come until Monday morning and then it will be several hours before anyone can go in to clean up and then I'll be able to go back.

My sister is coming next Friday for a visit -- sure am glad this happened before she arrived! Hopefully, all will be back to normal before your visit, Barbara!!
