DoctorLaptop’s Health Update for Clients and Friends
As you may be aware I am ill and anticipating foot surgery, with vascular disease in my right foot and related ailments. I have had to limit the type of repairs I can do to laptop Clean&Tuneups or setting up new systems on laptops. 1 or 2 jobs a week would be good, as those I can do from my recliner with my leg up, and no walking is required. My ability to walk is very limited and its very painful, even with crutches. I still require cash for the meds and basic survival and dog food, so these jobs are appreciated.
Any friends that would like more detailed info or to offer info or messages of support please contact me directly at doctorlaptop@gmx.com or call me on 675 993 069
Also, anybody in the Torrecilla Beach/Pl. Tutti Frutti area of Nerja that would like to come by and walk my lurcher MrBones is very welcome. Just call to set it up. Finding dog walkers is harder than you might imagine.



Thanks to everyone who tried to help with my problem. I have sent a personal reply to the one who gave me a solution.

Recommendation Needed- Gestor

Can anyone recommend a good Gestor in this area (Torrox, Nerja, Torre del Mar, Velez Malaga) who speaks very good English and understands Spanish and British taxes because the one we have seems to be getting our taxes higher and my Spanish pension lower every year.

Replies to Digamextra please.
