    I’m going to make some popcorn — with extra butter. Can I get anybody anything while I’m up?
  2. I adopted an old dog from the Ranch who had been there a very long time. She walked with me through my house, sniffed my cats and dog and then climbed up on the sofa. That was her “adjustment.” She has been with me three years and has been a love and a joy. I have never had any regrets. Would adopt another old, long-time Ranch resident in a heartbeat. You guys do an amazing job. Thank you.
  3. Doing the two together is common and for many people preferred. Get them over with. However, they are usually done in the same place, at the same time under general anesthesia. Around 14,000 pesos for both which includes everything, the doctor, hospital, and anesthesiologist. This is in Guadalajara. I would not have it done in a doctor’s office, go to different places for the procedures, or be awake for them. I am a medical coward.

    All of Christianity and the world forever. But if you want to argue that point now go right ahead.

    Why would I want to go to lunch with Jesus? He’s been dead for a couple of centuries — if he ever actually existed that is.

    I will not go to any restaurant that allows men with beards to eat there. https://abc7.com/5252325/?fbclid=IwAR2qhkCRKHsE8TojLP2NG13UrSx1sqNXlve34cYqZ-H5EVwA_b4S1ut32ZE
  8. Last night Chapala was hopping both at the park and the malecon, lots of traffic and people.
  9. It is not just a good idea, RV. It’s the law. Reservations only. He spaces the seatings so that he can devote enough time to each table.
  10. I don’t know Jimmy, but he said he sells prepared dishes at the Wednesday market in Ajijic and a couple of other places. As you likely know, much of Richard’s menu is prepared ahead and Hugh adapted recipes from Laura, the previous owner. I ordered the beef stroganoff because it has always been my favorite. It was as wonderful as always. Don’t know how they are working out all duties but we enjoyed our evening as much as we always had. It is up to you if you prefer to not give Richard’s another try because of your preference and suppositions.
  11. Ate there last Friday, his second day re-opened. It is the same menu and familiar specials. We each ordered our old favorites: beef stroganoff, fillet mignon with blue cheese butter, and salmon. There were ice creams, cobblers, and chocolate pots for dessert. Hugh had Jimmy working in the kitchen leaving him more time as host. It was a delightful and delicious experience as always. So glad he is back!

    Well, that’s that. It’s settled. The emotionally stunted adults who can not eat out without their ego supporting animal (“Please look at me. I am special.”) will keep the place in business. Those who are offended or disgusted by dogs in restaurants can eat at one of the many, many restaurants who meet their standards of sanitation. Those of us who can’t summon up the energy to get our panties in a twist over the issue will dine there when/ if we get around to it. Glad this latest dust up over dogs in restaurants is over.

    I have two dogs but do not take them with me when I go out. We are all more comfortable with them being at home. However, I personally do not mind if a well behaved dog remains under the chair or table in a restaurant (but understand that some people have strong objections). I believe it is most unfair for entitled foreigners to take advantage of restaurant owners who can not say “No” to a customer. And, of course, we will not get into the people with untrained dogs who allow them to interfere with or ruin other people’s dining out experience. They are a whole other story.

    Once a restaurant thread turns to dogs it does not get off that track. This thread might just as well be locked now.
