  1. Yes, Katya (Enrique) has been with us well over 15 years. He used to deliver for Bonafont (but we couldn't afford it) and when he changed to Katya, we happily asked him to become our regular water delivery specialist. Always pleasant, professional and prompt. Take care, y'all! Val

      Thank you very much, I will contact her.

  4. Please accept heartfelt condolences. I'm so very sorry you're in this difficult situation. As you have already recognized, it's the loving and humane decision but that doesn't make it any easier. Sadly, we've been in this same place before and since we are still owners of fur babies, I know we will be in this situation again. I hope you can find some solace and comfort in knowing you provided a loving, safe environment and home for Max. I choose to believe he and others before him will await your arrival at the Rainbow Bridge. Sending hugs, peaceful and healing energy. I'm so sorry, Val.
  5. We have a dear friend who currently lives at Dr. Leon's "Hotel" on the Carretera in Ajijic Centro. Every Sunday, I pick him up for a Sunday Fun-Day at our home. When I arrive, the two blue parking spaces are NEVER available for pick-up of our friend. I have to go to Intercam, call the care-taker and ask her to bring him out to the street. She calls when he's there and I have to double park in the middle of the Carretera with my flashers on while he tries to get into the car as quickly as possible. He has mobility issues and it takes a few minutes. The cars immediately behind me can see what's happening but those further up the hill are laying on their car horns. It's frustrating for all parties, EXCEPT for the people who have parked in Dr. Leon's 2 handicapped parking spaces. Usually, when I return with my friend on Sunday evening at least one space is open or a space close enough to walk with him into the "Hotel" has become available. It's unfortunate and frustrating. I don't know there's an answer to the problem. Dr. Leon has told me many times that there's nothing he can do about it even though he's paid for the specially marked spaces. ARGH! Val Jones
  6. Yes, unfortunately, a friend and I did the Tijuana, crossed over the bridge, UBER to pharmacy at Target and returned that night. VERY LONG 25 hours without sleep but grateful to get the Omicron booster as well as the Flu shot. Many friends have done the same but spent the night. In hind-sight, that would have been so much easier. Safe travels! Val.
  7. Sad to read this news, he was a wonderful proponent for helping lakeside residents obtain clean and safe drinking water. Thinking of his family during this terribly difficult time. Val
  8. GREAT! That's perfect, I love those restaurants. Often at Il Giardino for lunch. Thanks so much! Val
  9. Thanks artsnob, still hoping someone has some suggestions. LOL, hope springs eternal, eh? Val
  10. Hoping for suggestions of dinner options, lakeside, that are open at least until 9 pm or even 10 pm. Participating in the BRAVO! Theatre production of "Wizard of Oz" tonight and thinking we won't be out and able to head for dinner until about 8:30 pm. Post-pandemic, we haven't been out to dinner much and definitely not at this time of night. So, unsure who's open. Thanks, in advance, for your suggestions. "FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD!" Val Jones.
  11. LOL, I got into the car and saw the time on the KIA display and thought "Oh my gosh, I'm LATE!!!" Then, I checked the time on my Fitbit and iPhone and they confirmed I was still on time. Now, to figure out how to change the clock time on the KIA..... First world problems. Happy Spring, everyone! Val :)
  12. FANTASTIC news, thanks for sharing! We'll find a way to make a donation. Y'all are TERRIFIC! Val Jones
  13. YEA! I'm lucky to be chosen to be part of this fun, interactive, unique show. Brush up on songs from The Wizard of Oz and join us and sing along to these childhood favorites. See you there! Val Jones
  14. Thanks! I'll try Granero tomorrow morning. Hopefully they'll have it. I appreciate your help. Val.
  15. Sadly, we have lost Malaga. Celebrated my Birthday there and had 2 other wonderful meals since November and very sorry to see them go. I realize parking was difficult/almost non-existent on Hidalgo and their entry was just a simple doorway but the ambiance, quality of food, presentation and wait staff were top notch on each of my 3 visits. Wishing them luck in the future. Val
