  1. As you did, Tim, I also worked with Mauricio and always looked forward to seeing him at the garden, and after a while, all over town. Have you checked out Dionico Morales's facebook page or La Peña de Santos Rico's? There are some good pictures there of Mauricio, including in his role as a village shaman hosting events at the gallery on Constitución. I sent an email to Sandy B at LCS promoting the idea of a bench there, and/or plaque, tree planting, photo, etc. Another thought would be to commission Dionicio to make his friend's portrait to have hung at LCS. What do you think? Tom
  2. Donations to help Mauricio's family with expenses can be made at La Peña de Santos Rico gallery in Ajijic centro, Constitución 16. That's one block directly south of the plaza. Phone 376 766 0281.
  3. Thanks for posting this sad news, Tim. I loved Mauricio, getting to know him over the four years I worked with him in the garden. He made working there a treat and an education in the uses of plants. We've lost a real fun-loving, people-loving, gentle, always helpful and enlightened soul. Descansa en paz, Mauricio, amigo...

  6. Until this week, every couple of months I would deposit one check for 5K from my US bank to my Bancomer account. Although they now have a 1K limit per check--as noted above--yesterday they accepted five checks each made out for one thousand. The teller and I exchanged eye rolls over this new requirement, but it is not as onerous as I originally thought; I can still take care of my regular 5K deposit in one visit.
  7. I see this post on the Chapala Municipal Gov's Facebook--https://www.facebook.com/GobiernoDeChapala/posts/2021847831388173--advertising a Drivers License event in Chapala on Feb 15. I'd like more info--en inglés. Is this only for renewals? Is there a driving test required? What qualifies as proof of your blood type? Gracias.
  8. I'm interested if you are in Ajijic or can deliver there. Send me a message, por favor.
  9. Racquet Club is too far for me. I'd play pickleball in Ajijic.
  10. Andres Nuñez not long ago did excellent work on a difficult painting job for us. With recent rainy weather and two children going back to school, this single dad is giving a special offer this month on painting jobs--20 pesos an hour. Bonus: he speaks good English. His phone: 331-742-83-92.
  11. Found grommets! Las Vegas upholstery shop near Dona Donuts has some for their own use they are willing to sell at a reasonable price...they're called "ojales".
  12. Thanks, WideSky and Natasha. WideSky, where did you buy the grommets? And what did you use for reinforcement?
  13. We need a custom size shade cloth for our entry way--about 6' X 18'. Our idea is to buy a length of shade cloth from the nearby ferreteria and have a seamstress sew on reinforcing cloth around the edges with grommets. Any ideas of someone in Ajijic who has experience with this kind of work?
