Heading Home

Yes! I am finally going back to the house on the cliff in Aticama.  On Monday the 6th of May I will be taking a bus from Bakersfield to the Tijuana airport to catch an early morning (1:45 a.m.) flight to Guadalajara and then a bus to Aticama.

When I arrived at my brother Rick's house the last week in September, I thought I would be back in Aticama for the holidays but that was not to be.   What could have been a simple surgery to remove a lesion from the top of my head turned out to be way more complicated.  With all the red tape involved in getting my Medicare card the surgery was delayed until December 10th and then with the holidays everything took longer than it should have.

My brother Rick and his wife Karen welcomed me into their home and there was never any discussion about  wearing out my welcome; it was made clear that I could stay as long as it took.  My proposed visit of a few weeks turned out to be over 7 months.  Thanks, Bro!

Also, thanks to Rick and Karen, I have a new laptop computer to keep up with the blog and email.  You know how they say "You can pick your friends but you can't pick your family?", even if I could pick my family I think you all know it would be an easy decision!


  1. You've got a GREAT family, in many ways you are a lucky man. Have a good trip back to Mexico. I'm sure you'll have a big sigh of relief when you get settled back in.

  2. So glad you are finally getting to go back to Aticama...glad your health issues are on the upswing too :) Hope your brothers knee surgery went well and he does as well as you have :)

  3. It's great to hear that you are well and going back to Aticama. Hve a good journey.
