Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
When Pierre Elliot Trudeau became Prime Minister in 1968, I was attending Business College in Regina. Trudeau-mania was the order of the day, but I could NEVER UNDERSTAND what the hype was about! I recall seeing him in the Park one day with an entourage and a bunch of screaming young people trying to get close and touch him. Now, it if had been Elvis Presley, I could see it, but there was absolutely NO APPEAL in Pierre Trudeau, in my view, in any way, shape or form! Not in looks, not in manner, not in political potential - in no way at all was he appealing!
It was time for me to do my “sisterly duty” this past week. My sister was moving from a Senior Duplex in Churchbridge to a Senior Condo in Yorkton. Our brother, Paul, had been helping her out, but time was running out for the move. I had a very nice trip (with company) – Conway Twitty singing all his best songs on the first stretch from P.A. to Dafoe, and then Johnny Cash from Dafoe to Churchbridge! Wonderful old music! Hard to believe they are both gone! When I was much younger, I was definitely NOT “country” – it was Rock and Roll for me and my friends, but I have grown to love it over the years!
I guess we “winter festival-ed ourselves out” over the past years when we were involved with the various events and the clubs we belonged to. John and our son participated in the Beard Derby for many years, but just cannot seem to get interested anymore. It is good to know that it is still going on in full swing and people are enjoying themselves in all the various activities!
As I was walking by our front window this past week, there was a mangy-looking “dog” running down the road in front of our house. Occasionally there are neighbourhood dogs enjoying some freedom, but it was fairly obvious that this “dog” was far too scruffy to be a pet. It had a long twig hanging from its’ tail and it sure did not look like a neighbourhood pet. I called the neighbour across the street to see if she had been looking out her window, but she was busy making pies so was nowhere near her front window. Haven’t seen it since – I am almost certain it was a coyote. I am thankful we have a completely fenced yard so that our little dog is protected from any wildlife taking a short cut through our area … Hopefully whatever it was headed out to the fields behind our subdivision!
