    Purchasing meds in Mexico, donating

    I have found great bargains this year on all my meds in Mexico. You may have to shop around a little to get what you need. A plug for Casa Hogar=the old folks home. We have been bringing this place clothing, jackets and blankets. Trying to figure out how to donate food.

    Refrigerator in RP

    I hate to sound like a newbie but I rarely go to town. Can you tell me if it is possible to purchase a new nice, modern, stainless refrigerator in RP? I could bring one down, pay the impuestos and get by but I would rather purchase it in RP if possible.

    Border thoughts 4/15/19

    I crossed back in to the U.S. on Monday the 15th, had about a 40 minute wait which surprised me this being a Monday. I read the reports about !00,000+ people are coming to PP for Easter.

    Huge loads of “stuff” on pickups headed to Mexico.

    Today I counted eight trucks stacked and loaded with every used garage sale item imaginable headed south to the border. How do these people get a load like this across the border?

    Paying taxes 2019

    I just had the best experience ever in any Municipal office-Mexican or American. The tax office in Penasco had two interpreters who guided me perfectly, the clerks were great and the the entire time spent in the building was less than 10 minutes. Yippee! What is usually a PITA turned out to be a...

    Chicago VS Penasco: weather

    I am here in Chicago freezing at a niece’s soccer game at 35 degrees and sleety. Makes me unbelievably grateful for the time I have spent on our wonderful beaches and the the time I intend to spend in the near future in Mexico. Enjoy it all you can.

    Scorps on the beach

    Last night in Miramar we killed a big scorpion that had crawled on to our porch. I grabbed a scorpion light and walked the bushy upper beach and was stunned at what I discovered. Just in front of four lots we killed 59 scorps. They were mostly large but some babies were there also. Two...

    Nighttime beach sleeping in August

    I slept on the beach in Miramar last night [Sun 8-13] and we were very pleasantly relieved by the constant and still off shore breeze. It was warm and humid but the strong breeze made it tolerable and the bugs were not able to eat us.

    Two hours + going in to Mexico

    5/26, 5:PM I have friends in line hoping to cross the border but after two hours they still cannot see the crossing. If Mexico truly needs the tourist dollars they certainly are not acting like it.
