The Trials and Tribulations of Living with a Vet

At 3.00am this morning my cel phone started to ring, and of course it was impossible to find. Well, after finding the phone I called back and found that it was Janet from Seaduced and her dog LaLa was being violently ill.

Dr. Laurie got on the phone and told her to bring Lala to the San Pedro Animal Hospital immediately. After a while Laurie came and woke me up and I had to come and help her put in an IV into Lala’s arm. Dr. Laurie got back to bed at 6.00am, and will have to do an emergency operation this morning which will hopefully go well.

Even though I say so myself we are lucky to have a 24 hour on call veterinary service here in San Pedro. The one bad point is that I have to help and learn how to be the vet’s assistant which at this time in the morning definitely interrupts my hangover.

Having written only a few days ago about the escrow situation in Belize. It has come to light that Coldwell Banker has lost a clients money. This is not good for one the buyer and two for us as a community as we keep allowing charlatans to operate with impunity and hide behind well people should buy from us, as we are professionals or the famous “caveat emptor”.

Crooks at Coldwell Banker in San Pedro

In the past two years Coldwell Banker situated on Coconut Drive have had two people whisked off back to the jolly old USA , by the US Marshalls and the FBI in two seperate cases.

Hugo comes from Argentina, in has a restaurant in Alicante, Spain which his family run and a restaurant in San Pedro called Aji. His particular style of cooking has made him one of the best chefs on the island and the event is not to be missed.

Pedro’s takes reservations and the gourmet paella will be served from 7.00pm on this coming friday night.

Skydivers Start to Arrive

Rich Grimm was spotted, last night, at Pedro’s Inn playing poker. His poker play over the last few years has improved dramatically, and he considers all the money that is on the table as his very own bonus.

This is the biggest year ever for the skydivers, and with over 200 individuals arriving over the next few weeks is a very welcome boost to the island economy. During the next couple of weeks Rich has 7 full days of partying where very night they go to a different bar/restaurant. This shows the new arrivals what the island is like, and many of his jumpers have come back with their families to show them how great “Isla Bonita” really is.

Rich deserves a huge debt of gratitude from the business owners of San Pedro, as he does more for tourism on this island than any of the paid advisors/marketeers employed by the government agencies. The Ambergris Daily believes that one year he should be made person of the year in San Pedro.
