They think it's lazy, self-indulgent.
They work too hard, they don't have time, the kids won't let them .
But you must take the time. It
will make you live longer. A
half hour nap isn't a half hour lost; it's an hour added to your life.

The family of Bill Butcher invites you to participate in the celebration of his life as we scatter his ashes at the reef here in Puerto Morelos on Tuesday 29th December 2009 10:30 AM. For many many years he enjoyed diving and snorkeling in these waters and it was his wish that he be part of that reef forever. We will have boats available for anyone that wants to participate with us at the main dock in Puerto Morelos. After we return to shore everyone is invited to my house: #776 Av. Rojo Gomez for fiesta. Hope you can join us.
