Hello Dick and Doris,
sorry to be so late with this, but Howard and I just now had the distinct pleasure of reading the thread about your Casa Del Lago event today. Miguel's contribution, of course, as always, was noteworthy, as the visual of the cactus situation brought tears to our eyes.
Gosh, I wish we could be there to help and be a part of this worthwhile event. I know Doris has put her heart and a lot of work into this project and it certainly deserves to be supported. But unfortunately due to the uninvited illness I acquired during our visit, we had to leave earlier than expected. Thankfully, recovery is in progress now.
Wanted to tell you once again what a great time we had meeting you and many others and also thank you for your gracious hospitality. We had a blast and are still amazed at the friendliness of everyone we met, something that is so difficult to find in the frozen North where everyone stays inside to keep warm I suppose and therefore never gets to talk to anyone. Tough situation, wish I had a magic wand to change things here to make it a friendlier land. But that's a whole other subject. Have to dig into that one some day.
I am certain that we will meet again as we definitely plan to revisit Ajijic in the future. As Doris said: "it gets in your blood"!!!
Wishing you great success with your art show, would love to see some of the things on display and for sale, and of course we'd also love to yell "gimme a beer!"
Best regards from Gudrun and Howard
p.s. it's about 30 degrees here and snow on the ground, brrrr
