This is Senor Schlemann, aka “Pepe”. No, the last name is not a mistake. I think one of his grandfathers or great-grandfathers was a Jewish man from Europe. He runs a local tienda that sells alot of leather stuff and various assorted clothing and accessory items that local farmers might use
Don Rito & Dona Carmen, two of our favorite home visit people. This photo is somewhat miraculous, considering that every time I’d ever visited with Don Rito, he was bed-ridden with a colostomy bag & catheter tube.
Dona Maria, a leg amputee that lives by herself, we are blessed to be able to visit with her. She’s also blessed to have neighbors that check up on her from time to time
This is Goya, and her mother Dona Marciana. They are about a 45 second walk from our front door, living in a humble 2 room adobe house
Perhaps the All-Star of all of our home visits. Dona Elvirita used to go to the ranchos back in the day with Mr. Frank and Mrs. Genie
Can’t remember his name, but he lives at the comedor (nursing home) half a block from our house. Super nice dude
another one of the residents at the comedor. He’s 107 years old according to the nurse, but he says he’s only 80-something. However old he is, he’s still got some pep in him
another comedor resident. She seems to get fidgety when I play my guitar for her. Perhaps that’s her ever so humble and polite way of saying I need more practice 🙂
