Our prayers are with you and your wife and we all hope you sell quickly so you may get on with what needs doing.

It IS a beautiful home in a beautiful town
I wish the best for you and your wife and a Merry Christmas.

We hope that we won't have to move back to the USA. I've spent too much of my life elsewhere, that it seems a very strange, foreign and even dangerous place to me. I've lived in Chapala longer than any other single place in my entire life of over 75 years! We love Mexico, but the new immigration rules may be putting us in a 'catch-22' situation. Our income is low and won't qualify us to stay, and our savings are only enough for one. Ironically, if we sell and deposit the proceeds, we would qualify and could then be permanent residents, which we should have done years ago, either owning or renting. In any event, downsizing at our age would have its merits, especially for my wife. She does sometimes complain of all she has to do, but then, considers most other options 'too small'. We also have three dogs & she won't move without them. If the house sells, I kind of hope the new owners might like the dogs, so they could stay at home.

As such, we've reluctantly put our home on the market. If you want to take a look, go to Glenn Home $292,000 USD
Looks like you've been living the Dream... Take care of yourself now, and good luck in the New Year...
