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.

Something a Little Different

Hello friends!! My sister and brother-in-law from Mississippi were visiting with us this weekend so I don't have a card to post. However, Barbara and I did get in a little shopping and found the cutest pair of earrings; we both got a pair! What do you think -- aren't these little owls just adorable? I love 'em!

We fly out tomorrow to Jacksonville, Florida and will be visiting with friends in Green Cove Springs. My childhood friend Molly wanted us to come check out their area before the move to Mexico to see if we might like to come there instead. I know that would certainly make my mother-in-law happy! She's just not very pleased with the Mexico idea and I think that she will most likely have to go with us wherever we move.
Talk to your all later when we get back!

Oh, these little hooters are great. I use to have a jointed owl pendant back in the 60's that I wore. Every old style becomes new again! Please have a very pleasant trip, my friend!

I love those earring Betty. Right now we have a mom and baby owl we hear at night. Sounds like the mom is teaching baby how to hoot. Sometimes it is pretty noisy. Hope you had a safe trip.
