Why the New Look, Sid?

April 20, 2013

Well, after many years of wearing mostly black to identify with a few of the performers I've enjoyed over the years from the Cowboy star Hopalong Cassidy (Only you old timers will remember him), Johnny Cash, and other Men in black, I've made the decision to change my somber color for something a bit more colorful.

After all, as the "Lake Chapala Information Guy" I owe it to those I help to find their little peace of paradise to look more the part of a content, happy to be retired gringo, living here at Lake Chapala, Mexico (which of course I am).

So, it's off with the old and on with the new look.

Now if you're wondering how I came upon this sudden change of heart; here's the story.

In order to get the word out about Lake Chapala and my soon to be published book, "How to Live a Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension:Safe, Beautiful, and Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico" I sought the services of an "Image Coach".

No, I've not gone Hollywood on you, but I will be heading for the BIG APPLE (New York City) very soon now.

Why New York City? Because that's where the big shot national TV Producers hang out. I hope to get to meet a few of them and who knows perhaps land a few minutes of National TV time to share my love of all things Lake Chapala.

You see, as popular as we are, Lake Chapala is still a "secret" to a lot of folks across North America who deserve a warm friendly affordable place to retire with others like themselves.

So, there you have it. No more Sober looking Sid. My new look hopefully will make me appear more like the happy, contented blessed guy I am to live at Lake Chapala,

So, now you know… the rest of the story. Tu amigo, Sid

    Hi Sid, Very good choice. Image is so important and it really matters when it comes to Public Relations. You are advertising a very colorful and vibrant place, so your image must be read likewise. Success is on your way! Waiting for that book!

    Hi Sid, I saw Hoppy and Topper in a parade when I was a kid. Saw Johnny Cash at a fair . You did them great honor wearing black, but I like the new look too. Good luck in New York.

    Oh No…lots of New Yorkers moving to Lake Chapala. It will start feeling like Florida:(

    Hi Anna,

    Only a very few of my fellow attendees were interested in Lake
    Chapala. Most were younger and not ready to retire and needed to continue
    working. I may have planted a few seeds.

    Did not run across anyone from Florida, but met scores of interesting creative
    types. Doctors made up significant percentage of the group. Thanks, Sid
