Hi Everyone,

Let me tell you the Reader’s Digest version of when I said, Enough, is Enough.

Roll back the clock by just over 15 years ago, because that’s when I retired from my career as a Dallas Police Officer.

I had enjoyed a 35 year career with the Dallas PD, with all sorts of interesting assignments from beat cop, to holding various command positions. Each was a new adventure, with new skills to learn, new challenges to overcome and I truly treasure each of my assignments.

One thing I picked up along the way in my police career was a fascination with the law and how it works, which led me to enroll in Southern Methodist University School of Law.

Talk about long hours. Between going to law school part time and being a full time police commander, husband and dad, I was a very busy guy.  Five years of this led to a Law Degree, followed by admission to the State Bar of Texas, followed by a 17 year part time practice in civil law (so as not to conflict with my criminal law police duties).

Both my civilian and police friends thought when I retired I would open a full time law practice….

But, I fooled them and decided “Enough is Enough”. After 35 years of service I had a nice civil service pension, a smaller Social Security pension, real estate investments, a house and cars paid for so it was time to “chill out”.

Is it your time to “chill out”, time to “pull the pin”, time to say “Enough is enough”?

OK, I know I was very blessed to have a decent pension. Unfortunately for many this is not the case.

But, did you know that what ever your financial situation is, you will be able to live a better, more fulfilled, and happier life at safe, beautiful, and affordable Lake Chapala in all probability than where you live now.

So, take it from a guy that could live a very comfortable life, even in high cost North America… I have chosen Lake Chapala, Mexico, because for me it’s just plain better.

I think you should choose Lake Chapala too.  Here’s why!

You’ll find that at Lake Chapala the amount of your retirement pension is a lot less important here,  because so much of what makes life great comes for free with your decision to move here.

I suspect, since you’re reading this, you’ve already heard about the year around great weather, the friendly local and expat community and of course the low cost of living, where even on a modest budget you can afford to have servants. But, there’s so much more.

Life here takes on a new dimension,  interesting things to do, ways to help the less fortunate, new friends to share life with, and if you’re single, who knows you may even find a new soul mate. There’s a singles mingle group.

Here’s what happened to me. As my first wife was dying with cancer in our last conversation she whispered to me. “I want you go to Mexico and find a Senorita to look after you.” That was not my plan… but that’s what happened.

So, almost no matter where you find yourself in life, it can be better here at safe, beautiful and affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico.

Now, before you go, let me give you a mini commercial message. To get 10 years of life at Lake Chapala distilled down into a fun and informative read click this sentence link to go to Amazon.com and consider an investment in

“How to Live a Caviar Lifestyle at Safe, Beautiful, & Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico”. You’ll be glad you did! If you’re not sure the book will help that much, read the many 5 and 4 star reviews to see how it’s helped so many others just like you.

If you’ve already invested, “Muchas Gracias” Write us a review and come see us. Even, if you haven’t bought our book yet, you’ll get the same great service, enjoy the same wonderful weather, and either way I’ll gift you a cool Lake Chapala Map Guide Booklet (as long as supplies last).

The book will allow you to “hit the ground running and make your time here even more productive.

See you at Lake Chapala! All for now, Tu amigo, Sid

    Hi Mark,
    She’s my better half standing in front of our entry gate.
    Livestock can show up almost anywhere. For a while we had a steady
    stream of cow’s roaming our neighborhood, but for some reason they
    stopped coming around.

    Not uncommon in some neighborhoods to see a horse here and there
    tied to a tree, They usually belong to a gardener who rode his horse from a nearby small town to care for your garden Tu amigo, Sid .
