Bet the thugs scoped her out at the money place.

Got paypal? I'd be in for the IMS thread benevolent insurance fund since I'm not spending any of my money in Mexico on myself.

Good to hear jimmex... one night in Morelia? What is it like? It really poured here and it has come back off and on.

Mark883: spending money on "entertainment" is spending money on yourself if you are the one who is being "entertained".

Very sad to hear that kind of stuff in San Miguel.
