    Is Oh Shirt! out of business

    Where are they in relation to Letra CH restaurant?

    Is Oh Shirt! out of business

    They do hand embroidery. I don't think they do machine embroidery. I'm looking for something like the ASA aprons. But thanks for answering.
  3. Is Oh Shirt! gone? I couldn't find them where I thought they were located and an email to their listed address came back as an error. Where else does custom embroidery, like on aprons?

    Gas Availability

    Riberas and Chapala open within the last 2 hours, no lines.

    Who pays for trash collection?

    Well, clearly there is my stupid error. I don't have a mailbox.

    Impressive how Tiny knows when the garbage truck passes in Riberas better than those of us who have lived here for many years . . . and apparently he lives in Guadalajara. Oh, to have that kind of clairvoyance. Not only would we know whether they were going to pass at all but apparently the exact time too. I wonder if he can also tell us when the municipio is going to fix our awful streets.

    I didn't know you lived on my street. Guess I'm just not smart enough to have figured that out.

    Parker inscurance moved

    They sure didn't stay long in that one building. I thought they built and owned it, but apparently not. I am thankful to whoever built and owns it because it got rid of a squalid squatters place on that corner, sometimes with neglected animals.

    Who pays for trash collection?

    I've never tipped the garbage men and they have always picked up my garbage. I am not going to hang around staring at the street watching for them to pass so I can tip them. I pay for garbage service as part of the predial. Whether the municipio is paying too much for garbage service is not my problem. If the predial is not enough to provide the services the municipio offers then perhaps the predial needs to be increased or the services reduced. I do usually give for the garbage men's posada at Christmas, but again it's a question of being there when they pass. I do not plan my days around garbage pick up.

    Are we getting back to normal

    Is the Moyoyo car wash closed for good for sure?
  11. Permanently or temporarily? How long ago did he do this work for you?
  12. I agree, especially the second half of October. Rain has usually stopped, everything is green, wildflowers blooming, nice weather, not high season.

    I have to agree with More Liana. I do not believe all Mexicans are instinctively or culturally dishonest. By the way, More Liana was not correcting your grammar but rather your use of vocabulary and your spelling. And the word is elefante, not elifante.

    How about getting a housesitter while you are gone? You leave gardener's pay with them so he is only paid if he works. I have used housecarers.com quite a few times with pretty good success. The homeowner pays nothing to use the service and housesitters do not get paid. They even pay their own airfare.
