Welcome to Gregg & Carol Calkins' Web Site
The World of "Los Gringos Locos"

adv_us.jpg (83354 bytes)

Because people repeatedly told us that we were nuts to move to Costa Rica,
we began to think that maybe we really were "the crazy gringos".
So, "Los Gringos Locos, S.A." is our officially registered,
Costa Rican company name.

Life is much too short to live it without a sense of humor.
Feel free to check out our links as you explore our world.
ˇPura Vida!

An update:  We have lived here in La Fortuna for over thirteen years now, and it is our home.
Aside from missing our families and friends in a major way, we are comfortable here.
Our lives have changed in many ways, including adopting a little Costa Rican boy.
We're back into the parenting role with homework and the whole nine yards.
Who'da thunk?

It just goes to show you what can happen when you say YES to life!

William Ernest Calkins & the U.S.S. Flagship
Gregg's Dad moved to Costa Rica to live with us at the tender age of 93.
These pages reflect his years in the Navy (1927 - 1931).
He has since passed away, and we miss "Abuelo" very much.

The Patterson Girls
These pages are devoted to the genealogy
of the Patterson Girls... Carol's mother and aunts.
