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.

"The Chicken Place"

Here is Larry at the chicken place. I was across the road and I didn't realize he was waving at me as I took the picture! As you can tell, the place was sooooo crowded; he waited forever but still never got our chicken so we'll just go back again next week. (There are a lot of people from Guadalajara who are down here for the Easter holiday.) I can report that we had a wonderful lunch though. We ate at "Bubba's" -- sounds like we're in Mississippi! We had fried catfish, hushpuppies, cole slaw and french fries -- yum, yum! There were so many delicious sounding things on the menu -- bar-b-que ribs, pulled pork, chicken fried steak, chicken and dumplings, etc., etc., etc. Guess what???? the fellow who owns the place is from Dallas, TX! I think we'll be able to find plenty of comfort food here!
We had a nice swim this evening and I'll say good-bye for now so I can go take our swim suits out of the washer!

Oh Betty, so nice to hear from you! Glad you made it safely and are starting to settle in.
You look great, seemed to have weathered the move very well indeed. Of course sunshine and pool and flowers would put a smile on my face too, heheeeeeeee specially after having snow flurries this morning. Take good care, love your pics and keep on keeping in touch! Hugs

Wonderful pictures and great sunshine. I'm glad you made it there safe. If that pool is heated save a towel for me ok! We are at 35 degree windchill.
