Hola
For you that remember Mike, we had a remembrance for him at Eloinas bar. He died three years ago on Christmas eve/ Christmas day. We drank a toast to him of his favourite Tequila, an almond flavoured drink. Still miss the grumpy old fart.

I was just remembering him today, and planning on buying that little favorite "toddie" of his when I get there and have a toast to him. What a character. And he raised a fine family.

Hola
The reason we where at Eloina's is because that was the last place we saw him and shared a drink with him. Still remember that last drink with him. What a nice man.

We shared a few moments with Mike at Coconuts the evening before that Christmas Eve. He was a fixture in the winter tourist scene of Zihua and is missed. Every time we ran into him, he'd shout: "Watch out, there's Canadians around!"
His favourite drink was Orendain's Crema de Almendrado.
