This Week's News

On Tuesday Gordon finally got my shelves up in the corner between the closet and the window. That space was just wasted so now it has a purpose. I could use a lot more of those "purposes" in the basement.

On Wednesday we joined Aunt Joyce's family at the Broadview Nursing Home for her 85th birthday party. A couple of the kids and their spouses were missing but we were joined by another cousin, Carol and her husband, Eddie (on left closest to the camera). Carol had come to mother's funeral but I don't recall much about that day so it was good to see her again even though we didn't get to chat much.

Aunt Joyce's 85th birthday

On Thursday August 16th it was six years since Bib passed away. I still miss him. He was my sweetie puppy but we are both glad that we elected not to get another animal. We just don't want the responsibility any more.

Also on August 16th our granddaughter Iris turned 4 years old! We haven't seen her since she was about 8 months old.

August 17th was my Mom's birthday. If she were alive today she'd be 94!

Our tree has now been marked for removal. You can see the big red H on it which stands for Hydro. Since the tree's branches are infringing on Hydro (electric) wires and the tree is leaning into the wires, Hydro will cut it down but they won't take the wood away. Hopefully even though it is soft wood it will be of use to someone. We have no idea when they will come to take it down.



  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely family with us.

    It was 6 years last February that my little best friend Levi died, so I know how you feel about Bib.
    I didn't want another dog either, but when I rescued blind old abused Misty, I knew I had to keep her, for her late Dad's sake. (I used to groom her for him.)
    Now she is my treasure, and I am so glad that I have her. She is 17 years old and I hope we have more years together.

    Happy Trails, Penny.

  2. What a great blog. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Sorry to hear of Aunt Joyce's passing. At least she had a great meeting with her family for her birthday.
    Hugs, Penny.

  4. Coincidentally August 17th was my mothers 83rd birthday.
