We are David and Chuck. We have lived for the last two and a half years here in colonial Patzcuaro Mexico. Previously we lived in Vancouver, Washington, not far from Portland Oregon.Where David was a hair dresser for 30 plus years and I taught primary students in a public school.

We have been together for nearly 29 years. We were married in Oregon and then denied our marriage by the courts of that state. We currently are domestic partners in the great state of Washington where we can again be married legally after the new law goes into effect. We were also wed in Mexico as well but have not yet done the legal part in D.F. Mexico.

We have been on well over thirty cruises and our next cruise is December 16 on the H.A.L. ship "Nieuw Amsterdam."

We have a 12 1/2 year old Miniature Dachshund and a four month old Mexican mutt of sorts. (Part Chihuahua and part Terrier) Her name is "Olive." We also have a young cat (less than a year old) named "smudge."

We do not cruise as often since our retirement in Mexico because there are oh sooooo many wonderful places to visit here in Mexico.We live only 3 1/2 hour drive from Zihuatanejo and four hours from D.F. (Mexico City) and Guadalajara.
