Have I Got a Deal for You!
March 26th, 2011 by Les

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you’ve forgotten it.  Unknown

C.S. Lewis said: “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art….It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.”

Over the past almost two years David and I have had the honor and privilege of meeting many of our blog readers when they visit our little corner of the world.  I do not exaggerate when I say this.  However, one must bear in mind you ARE reading my blog.  That does mean you are most likely the other side of wacky, suspect in your take on humor, like people who, at times, talk in circles and rarely reach their point of destination in the common and usual manner.

Oddly, considering my somewhat absurd and certainly skewed writing style and odd take on what it is like living in Mexico, we continue to receive these wonderful emails from our readers saying they’d like to meet us if we have time.  Boy do we have time!  We love this wonderful opportunity.  For those of you considering visiting….just let us know!

Consequently, after much convoluted thought and disjointed musings within the confines of my own mind I have a deal some of you hearty souls might be interested in….or not!

What David and I usually do is have the person(s) who is visiting, just arriving, etc either send us an email or call us when they reach our fair village.  We then make plans to meet; be it lunch, dinner, drinks and, for the early riser, breakfast or the like.  After the initial meet we usually invite everyone back to our house in the village proper for a tour and more chatter.

Let’s face it, ours is not a web site dedicated to information about moving here or, for that matter chronicled and highlighted points on what to do when you get here.  Ours is simply a musing on the absurdities of life in the small village of Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico, from a skewed standpoint.

This is our invitation to those of you who have made the plunge.  Would you like to be involved in the meet and greet process?  What we generally offer is to meet – just the two of us – or if the person(s) would like with a smattering of others that are currently living the Lake Chapala lifestyle.  Getting together is a joyous opportunity to share thoughts and ideas between those here and those maybe, probably, most likely (well, you get my drift), possibly thinking of taking the leap as well. 

If you are interested, please send an email to and you may just find yourself in the wonderful position we’ve found ourselves in more time then I can count….meeting some of the most exciting, interesting, absurd, wacky and wonderful people on the planet – like us crazy people not by design but merely by nature!

Viva Mexico!

And the wackiness continues....more Mardi Gras shots...

Can you imagine...that many people....that much crazy!

Interesting fellow?!

And the beat goes on...

A whole lotta woman!

What would Mardi Gras be without a dragon?!

Aw, come on now, I can't even walk on the cobblestones in simple shoes!

Won't you join us?

    Who is that guy and is he wearing a coconut? And how do those men on stilts do it on cobblestones!

    Funny you mention this. I’ll be in town with friends next week Thursday-Tuesday…and had actually thought of contacting y’all. I’ve been there a couple of times but it’s one of their first visits and I’ve learned any connection to locals can be such a benefit to first timers who are so full of questions and wonderment. Let me know what we need to do to arrange a meeting!
