I love the rainy season. It makes everything so fresh and clean. It is pouring this morning. I am waiting for it to ease up so that I can get out for a little walk with the doggies.
Then I have an appointment with the dentist down the hill. It appears I will have to have a crown as part of the tooth broke as well. But the good news is that they have this new technology that is computerized and they make the crown the same day! It's the latest greatest thing. So I am excited that I can get it done in one day and happy that it will only cost like $340 US dollars compared to what one pays in the states for this new technology I think it's a good price. What do you all pay for crowns now?
Then my DH and I have to head to Guadalajara today to meet with our attorneys. The good news is that the higher court upheld the decision that the lawsuit the neighbors brought against us(the criminal charge) was completely unfounded and without any merit at all. It still amazes me how here in Mexico you can find an attorney to simply lie and find witnesses who will also lie. But we are free of all charges after 4 years of pain and suffering on this whole deal. For those of you that haven't followed this, the neighbors sued us for disposition of property. We own an easement that gives them the right to park a couple of cars on our property. these people went belly up on the property they bought which they were going to make into 3 condos and then found out that the neighborhood had a rule....no condos. Now you would think that they would have looked into all this before buying the property but they didn't. So the only thing we think their motivation for harassing us so was that we would buy the property to get them to stop. but we don't want the property. We have spent so much money to defend ourselves for such totally bogus claims....so many lies. But even one of their witnesses recanted his story and ended up saying that he was told to lie or lose his job. And of course we have an official document with photos showing that the gas tanks they said we stole are actually in their garage just sitting there. We climbed up and looked in the window. So these are bad people. And not Mexicans but Gringos. So we are now worried that they might try something else to harass us so we want to put them on the defensive so we will file a lawsuit to try and recover the money we have spent on this. The do own 3 properties down here so if nothing else we can put a lien on them. I just would like to recover some of the money and donate some to Madre Maria and the orphanage. When we were going through all of this and having to defend ourselves, Madre Maria came to court to be a character witness for us so I want to take care of her. She wanted to help us. So sweet but of course she knows how much we have done for her and the children for so many years. Anyway wish us well that we are able to get some of the funds we spent back.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great
Have a terrific day
