Happy Canada Day

The days are passing faster and faster. The only (affordable) internet access is here at the library but it’s restricted to 30 mins, so it’s hard to write a whole lot.

Suffice to say I’m doing well, have made a few friends but not a whole lot, not too bored, have my own room with TV, fridge, stove, microwave etc., but no phone. I’ll be going back to vancouver next week – then will try to get to a place called Banff (somewhere in the rockies). Then I’d like to visit Niagra Falls briefly before heading slowly but surely towards Toronto (I’m told it’s the biggest city in Canada).

I miss you all. PS: Somebody say happy birthday to Simon for me.

    Great to hear from you Ad, Banff is the place Nichol Brown is going to with her cousin and some of his friends later on in the year. I’ll let her know you are heading that way soon. Niagra Falls should be fantastic, I remember seeing a film with Victor Mature in it years and years ago and If I remember correctly there was a scary scene in it with him walking a tightrope over the falls. Needless to say you’ll give it a miss this time eh! What do you think of Whistler? We ha a beaut weekend here although, it was pretty wet and cold. It did’nt stop us from getting out and walking. Nana says hello, and Granma was asking if you were well and enjoying your holiday. They both send there love. Have a safe trip back to Vancouver and good luck on finding your way to Banff. I’m sure Simon will get his birthday wishes from you.
    We are all very interested in how you’re going and I for one can’t wait to hear what Niagra Falls is like. I wonder how cold It’ll be in Toronto, I’ll have to get the map out to see where it is. Well Ad, will say bye for now take care and LOL to you from Mumxxx

    CHALK ONE UP FOR THE OLD DUDE

    An older, white haired man walked into a jewellery store one Friday
    evening with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweller
    he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

    The jeweller looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring and
    showed it to him. The old man said, “I don’t think you understand, I
    want something very special.”

    At that statement, the jeweller went to his special stock and brought
    another ring over.

    “Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000,” the jeweller said.

    The young lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with
    excitement.

    The old man seeing this said, “We’ll take it.”

    The jeweller asked how payment would be made and the old man stated by
    check. “I know you need to make sure the check is good, so I’ll write
    it now and you can call the bank on Monday to verify the funds and I’ll
    pick the ring up Monday afternoon,” he said.

    Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweller phoned the old man. “There’s no
    money in that account.”

    “I know”, said the old man, “but can you imagine the weekend I had?”
