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 Little Hummer


I had to post a second time today. I was FINALLY able to get a good picture of a hummingbird outside my living room window. He wasn't flitting from flower to flower; just sat there and posed for me -- I couldn't believe my good luck! It is a beautiful day here at Lake Chapala, Mexico -- sunny, a lovely breeze coming in the windows, temperatures in the low 80's (F.) May have to get out later this evening and take a walk along the lake!

How wonderful Betty, I love those hummingbirds and to get to look at one sitting is a real treat. What a beautiful tree...those leaves don't look real. Thanks for sharing your new home with all of us. Love seeing the nature there.

Great picture, Betty. Hummers are so hard to capture in a photo. Good job.

NO WAY! how are you south of us, but cooler??? We set a new record the other day. We hit 100. The record for reaching 100 has not been before June 10th in the past. But I'm not complaining, because I would much rather have hot weather than cold. I LOVE the hummingbird. You have a way attracting creature's outside your windows, ha! I was just thinking of the deer. I was driving out 1960 the other morning and there was a little doe on the side of the road. I was so afraid she was going to get hit, or worse cause injury to a driver. I'm still waiting on DH to put my bird feeder in the ground outside my window. We have had some wonderful visitors brought through the doggy door by the cats - 2 baby snakes, a couple of cock roaches, and of course the standard lizard. But know birds yet, thankfully!
