Happy Anniversary Auntie Mary and Uncle Paul! This was taken the day after their wedding, 70 years ago... Pretty gorgeous couple , don't you think? I talked to Auntie yesterday and she said" too bad it snowed so much on their wedding!" They had a quiet anniversary, as Uncle wasn't too well, but he should be feeling better today after a pint or two of new blood.
It is a milestone we could all hope to achieve someday, and if we turned out half as nice as they are, we would still be very lucky people! Thanks Ed for sending me the copy of that beautiful photo! On a side note, Ed, I finally framed up some of those beautiful old black and white photos you sent of my family, in the old days... makes for a nice wall of memories to cherish. Thanks!
So sorry to my dear readers , for not posting a thing for a long time. I am a sick pup these days with one heck of a sinus cold that is ttrying to turn into a chest cold. My big fear is that it will turn into pneumonia...that is what my boss, Chris has...and he is very sick. His son and daughter also had or have it. I am trying to hang in there for two more days to keep things going for , then I have Sunday off. Yea! I am so far behind with everything that I am still writing out Christmas cards, s o don't feel offended if you don't get one just yet...it is on its way. No Christmas letter...
My blog will tell you all of what we did this past year, the highlight being our trip to Vegas to celebrate Correna's birthday, in August. Oh yes, it was my birthday too! So it was double fun for us in Vegas and especially wonderful was our trip to the Grand Canyon. Our other high spot was having our beautiful grand-daughters here for the month of August! With Emil's new boat, it was lots of water fun for everyone!
The low spot of the year was the loss of Emil's mom...she ws a courageous ,beautiful woman, who didn't deserve to spend her last years a prisoner in her own body. Our other loss, of course ,was our dear neighbour, Bill who was a good buddy to Emil. On a happy note, his daughter, Deb and her hubby , Ashley, moved into Bill's house, and they have become wonderful friends , whom we never got ot know, while Bill was alive. Funny how things like that happen.
Our other good friend ,Brian, passed away rather suddenly after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. We had a celebration of his life at our Stan ALi golf tournament which ws held up in our neck of the woods for a change. We hosted it and at the same time had a nice memorial for Brian, who would have normally been golfing with us. Through many many donations from everyone, and numerous kind businesses in Nelson, we raised almost $1200.00 for Cancer research in Kelowna. The bright side was the three days when everyone gathered and camped out on our property, before and after the golf tournament. It was another grand yearly gathering of the Reese's Pieces and all of our/their friends!
The latest bout of celebrations have been for Emil, my sweety , who is definately going to retire on December 31st! Yahoo! We'll do the big party for him on the July long week-end, so keep it open and pencil us in for a lot of boating fun, and a big BBQ and what? Another PARTY of course! Emil will be well rested and up for some fun and visits from everyone! So have a great Christmas and a A HAppy 2008. It won't be the same without our kidlets this year, but maybe next, we can plan for a festive time in a hot country, altogether....and speaking of a hot country... oh---I'll tell you all about it, next time!
Happy, Sniff, Holidays!!!!
