WEDDING AND VISITING SISTER-IN-LAW IN BRANDON

Our grandson’s wedding was on August 11th at Rivers, Manitoba. We made arrangements to stay with dear sister-in-law, Rita, in Brandon for the several nights we were planning to be around. She is always thankful for the visits. Our niece Donna and her hubby, Brent, had just returned from Vegas and she had very good luck at the bingo there. Accordingly, she treated us and a number of other family members to a supper at Pizza Palace. That was sure nice of her!

YOU CALL THIS A HOLIDAY???

We should already know by this time that spending time at cousin Ken’s involves manual labour!!! This trip, Ken was in the process of removing all of his panels and breaker boxes and rectifiers and inverters which were in the basement hooked into his solar energy system and putting them into a shed 75 feet away from the house, as they were causing them grief in the house. Everything was attached to sheets of plywood, so it was no small task - it took two days! John arrived just in time to be his “helper”…

ON THE ROAD AGAIN…VISITING AND REMINISCING

It has been quite a while since we have stopped in to see my sister in Churchbridge and brother in Langenburg. Cousin Ken just advised that he will be bindering some wheat and needs his “straw boss” (John) to come and help! Both stops are on our way to Manitoba where our grandson, Zack, is getting married in Rivers on August 11th. We are looking forward to visiting with Kelly and her family at the wedding, and also stopping in to stay with sister-in-law Rita in Brandon a night or two. She always appreciates the visits, as John has been her favorite brother-in-law forever…

DEALING WITH THE DEATH OF A FRIEND

I felt compelled to attend the funeral of our grandson’s good friend, Will, this week. 

Although my husband andhad never met him, we had heard much a bout t his young man from our grandson, and it was nothing short of amazing what an impact he had on those who knew him and loved him. The packed large church was a testimony as to how much he was loved! He had been a member of the Carlton School Band along with our grandson, and the Band’s contribution to the service was awe-inspiring! They played their hearts out for Will!

ODDS AND ENDS/THIS AND THAT…

We were watching the football game the other night between Saskatchewan and Hamilton. When I met my husband, I can honestly say that watching football was not in my list of favorite things to do. However, over the years, I have grown to enjoy it (as they say, “beat’em or join’em”). The same thing happened with playing Canasta…
