Re: [Rolly] Introduce yourself

I'm David (66 years old) and moved to a house just outside Chapala in July 2004 and live here permanently. I came down from a lifetime in California and due to the AARP article, having only visited Tijuana and Cabo many years ago. I fell in love with Lakeside and bought a house on my 4th. day of visiting. I burned my California/U.S. bridges and am more than very happy here.

Divorced, no children and in a LTR with a super lady.

In my other (NOB) life I was an attorney for a while but believed too much in justice. My undergraduate is in Psychology and I did Crisis Intervention counseling for a couple of years. Too depressing.

I opened two medical clinics (10 years apart) and was the Medical-Legal Administrator.

I enjoy traveling and many years ago went to Europe with a girlfriend and Frommer's book "Europr on $5 per day." We actually did it and traveled around for four months. Myy last, and probably most interesting trip, was December 2003 when I went to Cuba. I lived a part of history on that trip and hope to go back again this year, probably for the last time before it changes.

My most fun though was building a Star Trek themed B&B named The Enterprise on Grand Cayman Island in 1991-1992 and I lived there for 3 years then returned to California leaving the Hostess to run it locally. Sold it in January 2001. Then worked for two years in a medical clinic owned by an Orthopedic Surgeon friend. I have written and had published two non-fiction self-help type books in the field of law.

That was about it for my work history except for the fact that what I enjoy the most doing, and have done it for 30+ years, is handyman work. I can build a house from the ground up and in true Mexican tradition, can fix most anything with coat hangers and duct tape. When I get the chance, I'll do handyman work locally and I work for food.

Other interests include scuba diving and flying (I have a Private Pilot license and flew a Cessna 172 for several years). From watching the movie, "Voices", I became interested in ASL (American Sign Language) so I took classes in it for 2 1/2 years at my local community college. I then taught it as a Teacher Assistant for 1 1/2 years at my local primary school.

I'm only sorry I didn't discover Mexico 15 or so years ago but I'm glad I did now and I love it.

So that's me.
