Didn't get me - but close

A friend of mine has a few lots in West Melaque he's been trying to sell for awhile and he did sell the one next to him this last winter to a Canadian couple. He has one more at a higher elevation that may have a nice view someday. I noticed one Real Estate sign had fallen down and the other was on it's way. I told Ron I'd put the signs up again but found the wood frame was rotten and eaten to the point of needing to be replaced. The signs belong to Monaco Real Estate but Senor Monaco has been unresponsive.

I'm not sure putting up an ineffective Real Estate's company signs is the thing to do but at least they will bring attention and will include Ron's contact info as well.

So I brought the 2 signs home with broken frames .... and while cutting/knocking the frame off out jumps an alacran larger than we usually get here.   This guy was very fast so not totally in one piece in the foto. The scorpions I've found on this property in the past have been very small, grey in color and only during house construction.  haven't seen any for over 2 years.

Yup, those little creepy things show up when you least expect them. Here in SMA, they are big, small, brown, grey, black and all creepy. I did kill one yesterday morning without screaming and wailing. Just walked over, got the fly swatter and beat it to death. After 14 years of that, I'm happy to have calmed down a bit! ha.

That's the problem with paradise... I don't even see mosquitos here in Tlaxcala... but it's 7000 feet above sea level and nights are always cool.

The brown ones show up in my garden at night. I usually run across them while dealing with leaf-cutter ants.

The tool of death is in the foto ..... and may be why front legs are missing

Anytime amigo.. I'll show you around.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
