When I was making sugar animals at Niko and Chole’s house week before last Chole’s grandkids were soooo pesky especially this boy whose name is escaping me at the moment… he cracked me up. Asuzena immediately got the idea of the iphone as a camera and wanted to take pictures. I kept having to grab […]
Don Wright made this crazy posterized and photoshopped picture of my home here in San Miguel de Allende with the pooches! Babydog got her stitches out and the cone off! it is a glorious day…and they both got groomed… How does it get any better than this???

I am back to Alfeniques folks! the sugar animals that adorn the day of the dead altars or “Ofrendas”. Anette Hansen bought this suckling pig (she beat me to it! drats!) and took this photo. I am trying to get my buddy Chole to make these. I think they would sell like hotcakes! […]
