Bringing birds into Mexico?
Jul 28th, 2009 by David

We’ve got this uppity cockatiel see. Gilbert. Once of Gilbert and Sullivan. But I woke up early one morning to find Sullivan dead at the bottle of the cage. Gilbert was whistling with a michevious grin on his face. I think he wanted to be a solo act.

Anyway, I’ve been trying to find out what we need to do to bring a cockatiel into Mexico. I talked to someon in Seneseca, and they he led me to a page where there was a drop-down list of different species. He said I should use the instructions for Canarios Mascatos. ‘Make sure you use Mascotos’, the said.

Well, I couldn’t find any canarios at all. sure, birds of prey, wild birds, armadillos, antelope, emu, giraffes, your occasional tapir – but nothing that fit a pet bird! Anyone know what the rules are for this?

Judy bought Gilbert a mirror a few days ago. I’d been told never to give a cockatiel a mirror, and now I know why. He’s discovered his new BFF in this 3-sided mirror!

I don’t know why the sound doesn’t work – but imagine you hear some loud, off-key, shrill, singing.

Renting Lakeside
Jul 27th, 2009 by David

Hey again. Two posts in as many minutes!

I’m  coming down lakeside in mid-August to look for a place to rent for a year.

Judy and I are looking for something in the $650-$800 range, with $800 just a little further than I’d really like to go. We’d love Ajijic of course, but upper Ajijic would be fine, as would some of the other communities lakeside. Maybe San Antonio or San Juan Cosala.  Anybody got any leads or ideas?

Also, how long does anyone think it would take me to find a rental we’d like? I know that sounds like a stupid question, but it would sure help me book the airfare if I knew there were plenty houses on the market, of if there were just a few.

I hope to see you when I get there–


I’m back!

Hi all. I bet you didn’t expect to see me again after my long absence. I’ve been trying to put the numbers together for selling my business.

It was strange – I had always thought that I was the business. I was the David Lawrence in David Lawrence Photography, Inc., after all.  Not being a businessman – it had never dawned on me that it had any value without me. The one afternoon – It Did!! Praise God for the little lightbulbs he lights up over our heads. I’ve got a website that generates quite a lot of money, and a good contact list. These things are worth something! Hallelujah!  I don’t know how much I can get for them – but it’s going to be a lot more than the $0 I’d been expecting all my life.
