Mexico Highlights 2015

Here are  photos that tell the story of some of my activities and friends over the last 8 months.  As I prepare to move to California for the winter, I have put together these photos as a tribute and thank you to the many that have loved and sustained me in Melaque this year.

My first “thank you’s” are  to Gail and Yoda for providing me with a lovely home which fortunately withstood the wrath of Hurricane Patricia remarkably well.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Pro-Animal, in addition to the puppies I wrote about in an earlier blog, it was an honour to love and fatten up rescue puppy, Lenteja, and find her a good home.

Yoda checks out the skinny pup the day she arrives. A month later she is looking much better and is ready to move on.

It was a treat to watch “my kids” from the daycare perform the other night, including a Christmas song in English.

In September, I surprised my mom for her birthday as part of a wonderful visit to Toronto for the High Holy Days.
