It’s Almost Taco Time

The Taco Ladies are coming! If you would like to enjoy delicious tacos under a gorgeous sunset, please fill out the form below. Everyone is welcome. The cost will either be $100 or $150 pesos a plate, depending upon how close we get to the target number of 50. The stated purpose of the party is to celebrate Mothers Day, but what we are really doing is thanking the dedicated dentists who have come here every year for a week at a time for the past six years to attend to the dental needs of the 200 kids at the Barron elementary school.

Wow, that was a really long sentence.

So if you can come, please click below, and tell literally everyone you see to come on over to the Phase I palapa around 7pm on Thursday, May 10. Thank you!!

Give Lemmings a Break

I keep hearing about people being like lemmings. I say, give lemmings a break! They do not, in fact commit mass suicide just because their leaders tell them to. Please remember that lemmings are mammals … they can swim. And they can scale sheer cliffs by walking down forwards. In the far northern isles where this species is abundant, historic migration routes sometimes require the swimming of a narrow channel en mass. Imagine caribou. Same thing.

More Sad News

Long-time EDM resident Ron Vagle has passed away. Originally a 16-A home owner, Ron and his lovely wife Jean resided in Phase 2 for the past several years. Ron was an early member of the 16-A Surveillance Committee, serving a number of years, selflessly contributing his time and expertise to a young and growing community. Many people will fondly remember his annual Puzzle Hunts, pitting the community’s best minds in a race to figure out his cryptic and ingenious clues. He was also the founder of the early Tues/Thur morning “dew-sweepers” golf hustle. His computer genius figured out everyone’s handicaps and kept meticulous track of the winnings. His famous Bean Soup recipe can be found in the Que Sabroso! cookbook.

A fixture for many years, Ron’s smiling face and sharp wit will be sorely missed.  Godspeed, Ron!

Mother’s Day Taco Party

Save the date: May 10. I know that’s the traditional date and not the celebrated date but it’s a special day here in Mexico for many reasons. That day we will not only honor mothers everywhere but also the team of dental professionals and volunteers who have made the Friends of Barron annual dental clinic at the primary school successful. In celebration of them and their mother’s, we would like to invite all EDM residents, their friends, their renters and absolutely everyone within shouting distance of the Phase I palapa to a special taco party on Thursday, May 10.

This day will be doubly special in that it marks the close of an era. This is the last dental clinic of its kind in Barron; future clinics will concentrate on the kindergarten. With the planned completion of the medical/ dental clinic in Barron, the needs of the school population will be met in the more traditional setting of a clinic office, with a little luck and perhaps some divine intervention. Plans for this eventuality are progressing slowly but then again, so did the glaciers. That didn’t make them any less significant.

So plan on coming to help us celebrate six years of service for a selfless and deserving team of professionals. As always, we will need a headcount so the Taco Ladies can feed us all. If you can attend, please fill out the attached form. We’ll see you a week from Thursday!!
