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.

We Made it to Laredo!

Just a quick note -- we signed papers and sold the house this morning and set off to Laredo. We have a flexible roof top carrier and had some problems for the first part of the trip because of a very strong crosswind. The straps that hold the carrier on the roof of the car come inside and hook. One of them started vibrating and sounded just like when the bees infested my house in Chapala last year! We had to stop a couple of times and readjust. Finally we put a little piece of "rubbery" shelf paper between the car and the strap and it helped immensely -- and finally the cross wind settled down. It did make for a long drive today though, because we couldn't drive over 60 mph for the first part of the trip.

We plan to cross the border in the morning, get our vehicle permit, and hopefully get a "green light" at the customs stop. This means that we don't have to stop and have everything in our car inspected. Please pray for a green light along with me!!!!

Will give you another update tomorrow evening -- I'm pretty sure that I remember that the place we'll be staying has wi-fi.
