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.

Visitors


Well, I haven't seen any hummingbirds yet but we had a lot of visitors yesterday. Enjoyed watching these little guys hop around the yard; they also liked gathering in our oleander bushes. I don't have any idea what type of bird they are -- maybe I need to get a Central America bird book so I can identify them.

Hope your yards are filled with pretty birds today,
Betty

These are lovely, Betty. It must seem strange to have to learn new species! Enjoy!
