Jo1955, If you move to cozumel, you had better get a big place, lots of us are visiting!  I do have a valid passport and am not afraid to us it, even though it has a picture of me with hair, and I don't have any right now.

Oops, I posted and then read about the guesthouse and margaritas and cabanaboys.  I'm not picky almost any drink with an umbrella is good.

Love this thread!  What a Hoot!  I am past treatment (was on the Dec '06 chemo thread) but just came across a bottle of Tea Tree Oil (for the dreaded black finger/toenails courtesy of "the red devil")... You are welcome to it.  I am STILL getting catalogs for head coverings, wigs etc... you can have those as well for the bonfire.  Also gave away all the fleece pants and tops I lived in for a year.  Donated the hats, caps scarves and wigs to the chemo suite at the hospital.  Purging feels so good, doesn't it ladies?  Continued good health to all, my fellow warriors.
