Looking for a loving home. "Blue," named so for his ultra-pale blue eyes, is a neutered Siamese-mix male under four months of age. He's very sweet but needs to stay indoors because of his pale eyes and pink nose (he may get sun burnt!). A perfect companion for a devoted owner. Please contact Debra at Debra (-at-) BajaRescue for more information.
- When going to the dump near the entrance of San Pedrito, stop at the house just after the turnoff going east and see if the gleaner/scapper family can use any of your discards. They took our used but functioning toilet, old palm leaves and a wading pool.
- Clear glass can be taken to The Glass Factory in Cabo and exchanged for blown glass figures from the chip and dent table. - Pat Baum
Pat, thanks for that tip about the dump. It reminds us that family at the dump is very poor and has kids. Readers may want to take them some toys, food, etc. on your next trip there. - Alan and Debra
Regarding the Antique doors and other pieces, call us at 145-0273. There are photos online thru smugmug.com. I can guide you to them, or email us at mamounatsea (-at-) hotmail.com - Thanks, Doug

the card I have on back of my license says Sindicatura del Gobierno Municipal – Tijuana (665) 688-2810, 973-7770, 973-7759 – haven’t had to show it yet so don’t know if it works. - Michael Stronberg
