[Robin and Jim] [Jim and Isabel] [Jim with Cece and Fred]

We held Jim's 75th at Roberto's Restaurant in Ajijic where we were joined by 39 of our good friends. Before the dinner, guests enjoyed cocktails and botanas and had their pictures taken upon entry. Above from the left are the hosts, Robin and Jim, Jim with Isabel Fuente and Jim with Cece Girling and Fred.

[Cass and Connie] [Pat] [Nancy, Sandy and Alfred]

Again from the left above are Cass and Connie Betinger, Pat Doran and Nancy and Alfred Mouget, with Sandy Hind-Smith, (center) our kind Niagara-on-the-Lake hostess for our wedding in 2010.

Next came Derek Nelson and Merelyn Shore, Judy and Bob Welch and John Martin and Damyn Young.

[David and Claire] [Doreen and Don] [Peter and Meritza]

Then we had David and Claire Ewart, more Ontario friends, Doreen and Don Chaloner, oldtime Ajjic friends and then Peter Howard and Maritza Freyslinger.

[Georgia and Lee] [Georgia and Michael] [Kathy, Ann and Ian]

Georgia did two shots, first with her husband Lee Barnsburg and then with Michael Schiable. And finally Kathy and Ian Baker with Ann Deans in the middle.

And more good friends, Betty Rennick and George Buckingham [bad photo so using one with us from our wedding,] Fernando and Steve, and finally a candid shot of the party with David and Claire Ewart, Ann Deans and waiter extraordinaire, Maci.

Thanks to Roberto for his generous gift of the botanas and for the excellent dinner served with flair and professionalism by his staff.

Many thanks also to all our friends and their generous gifts, including support for our Godson, Dany, and his parents as they launch on a new phase of their life:
