HONORING VETERANS ON REMEMBRANCE DAY

We spent this Remembrance Day quite differently than we have in the past.  Instead of attending the service at the Armories, or other venues where the war veterans were being honored, we spent the day watching many of the stories of Veterans on T.V.  We got the best education ever with respect to what the soldiers went through and endured away from home during the two World Wars –some of the most horrific stories we could ever imagine - battlefield shots where soldiers died by the hundreds, and carnage that we could never fathom in a million years!   Some of the stories showed the carnage of the bombings where innocent people were killed - scenes so horrific that it is unfathomable that humans could do that to one another!  During the whole afternoon, we could only sit there and pray that nothing like this ever happens again.  And yet we are aware that some foreign countries still live under these conditions.  It is so hard to believe in this day and age…

VISITING FAMILY IN CALGARY

We had an enjoyable trip to Calgary, where our niece, Donna, was delighted to have some company for a change. She has moved from Brandon to Calgary to be able to enjoy her grandson when her daughter needs a babysitter.  No fun being a Grandma with your first grandchild living several provinces away!!

LOOKS LIKE WINTER HAS ARRIVED!

Our cousin in Warman celebrated her 90th birthday last Saturday at their church hall.  Despite the snowy and icy conditions, we hadn’t gotten together with John’s cousins in quite a while, so we decided to go anyway.  There was some ice and snow on the road, but most everyone was driving accordingly and it was a good trip.  We had gone early enough to allow for some shopping time at Liquidation World (for me) and Princess Auto for my husband. He usually buys his windshield wipers at Liquidation World…  They must have gotten in a new shipment of merchandise, as the store was jam-packed fully of bargains – anywhere from carpeting in felt hats, with slippers and knives and underwear in between!  I was lucky to find a very nice pair of blue jeans – I had recently cleaned out some drawers in my bedroom and had 5 pairs of well-worn jeans that went into the garbage last week…

STILL GLAD TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE GREEN GRASS

I thought it was time to keep in touch with people this week, so spent some time on the telephone.  Sister-in-law Rita has returned to Brandon after spending some time with her daughter and family in Calgary.  She said she had an enjoyable time, but it is always wonderful to get back home.  We are so happy that she enjoys living in her condo and having good friends who meet down in the Recreation room where they can play cards and enjoy companionship.  It’s like one great big family!

READY FOR WINTER - WISHING SUMMER WAS COMING INSTEAD!!!

Finally all the yard work is done.  The garden is tilled and we are happy to have all the weeds buried for this year…  I am so thankful to have a clothesline to hang my laundry out.   I haven’t used the dryer since last spring.  Nothing smells as good as fresh laundry that has been dried outdoors!!  I can hardly wait to get into the bed when the sheets come off the line…   How “old school” is that??!!
