  1. Big excitement this morning. Bud was attending his ROMEO meeting when I heard a warning bark from Anouk. Before passing through the front door, I grabbed a heavy walking stick. Expected but didn’t see anyone inside the yard and both gates were closed. Anouk started digging in the flowers next to the house. I used my walking stick to separate plants and spotted a two foot+ long coral snake (deadly type). Kept striking it with my big stick, but couldn’t get leverage in the soft ground. As the snake was slithering through the flowers, I dashed back into the house for a spray bottle of ammonia (cheap but effective defensive weapon). Using the spray I managed to guide or force the snake up against the hard surface side of the house so I could smash the critter. Even with Anouk’s help of barking and digging in the dirt, took me more than 15 minutes to kill this deadly thing. My concern is that snakes don’t usually live or travel alone. Reckon we should stay alert!
  2. Where in Boquete or David can I purchase computer paper? PriceSmart no longer stocks this item. We asked three store employees and all three said the same thing. Thanks.
  3. Milano Italia Italian Restaurant is closed and The Sandwich Shop is now in that location. Leslie King has closed The Clubhouse at BCP. As of April 1, Chris Young will open TAP, a sports bar at this location.
  4. What date? Is this information current, last month, or for next year? information anyone.
  5. Several weeks ago I purchased a purse from an indigenous lady at the BCP Market. Just the right size and color and I used it daily. Last week I was in a hurry, forced and broke the zipper. Tuesday I took the purse back to this family and asked if a replacement zipper could be installed. No problem and the lady would not accept any payment. I was so happy with the results and impressed with her “no charge” that I purchased a small purse as a gift for a friend. As I’ve thought more about this experience, I remember three friends in the US who would enjoy a hand-made purse from Panama, so next Tuesday, I’m going back to the indigenous lady’s booth at the Market and buy more purses as gifts for friends. 😊😊😊
  6. Our rescue dog came to us with fungus on her feet. We finally cured the problem by soaking her feet in a mixture of vinegar and water.
  7. Wondering if lack of customer service and rising costs are indications of a “Yankee Go Home” message intended for gringos?
  8. Maybe you were “sort of lucky” with the lost paperwork. Our experience was that a listed beneficiary was someone we didn’t even know! We now check for name(s) listed as beneficiary on our bank account on a regular basis plus request written letter from bank manager indicating date & names on our documentation.
  9. I called Isabella and learned the following. Her place is open: Monday — Saturday 9:30am to 6:00pm Closed Sunday.
  10. Mike’s Art Shop. This store is located at Calle 4a Sur, Bajo Boquete, in space previously occupied by Charlie’s Pet Fashion (listed on Maggie’s List of Animal Resources posted on Chiriqui Life).
  11. Isabella’s Bakery & More. Isabella Fasano is owner and chef of this eatery located in Bajo Boquete, diagonal from the Police station and next door to an auto parts supplier. We enjoyed a berry pie with ice cream and took home an individual pecan pie. Her menu includes coffees and sandwiches. Special salads will soon be added. Here’ a copy of her business card plus some pictures.
  12. Kotowa Chocolate Victoria. Recently we stopped by to visit this Boquete addition for coffee and a piece of beautifully decorated and very delicious chocolate. Located on the corner across from La Posada restaurant, Kotowa Chocolate also offers wine and various desserts. Here are pictures taken during our visit.
