Monday Afternoon

Hi everyone. Well it is Monday afternoon and still snowing. We have more snow now that we had all year last year I think. this morning Jorge and I shoveled our drive and sidewalk and then went to Breakfast with the Seniors and then went to a Grandpa Bill and shoveled his drive and sidewalk. So we got a good workout for sure. It was about -23 C outside. Then I went bowling and really did good at that. I bowled 4 games 200,203,193 and 205. I have had a couple of really good weeks bowling. It seems to be more fun when you bowl well. Ha ha . To night I* am going to take Wendy to work and then in the morning I will pick her up and we will head to Lethbridge. Then on Friday we will come home. I sure do miss these little ones. I can't wait to get down there. Mandy and Jorge are going to take care of our dog for the next few days. Sorry Jorge but you'll have to do all the shoveling until I get back. They say it is warmer in Lethbridge. Jorge has been such a big help with all this snow. And guess what he can cook really good too. It must be really hard for him comming from South Americia to weather like this. He is a lot of fun to have around and fits into our family so well. God is so good.

Thursday Morning and Snowing

Well here it is Thursday and it is snowing like mad outside. Looks nice from inside but now I should go out and shovel the drive and sidewalk eh?? Maybe if I keep typing Jorge will do it eh? Just got an e-mail from my Sister in Flordia telling me how warm it is down there(sigh). Oh well what would we do with temps about 77% F?
Well last night I had a Mens Group here from 7 to 9 but they didn't get out until 10pm. What an awsome bunch of men. They sure all love The Lord. You could just sence that God was here with us all evening. They are talking about a group of us getting together and going to Hope Mission and helping there when they need us. They are looking into it now, also The Mustered Seed and The Bissel Center.
Well after the guys left Mum came out and she had Alias Season 4 in her hand so Mandy, Jorge, Wendy and I watched the first one (Only). We would have watched more but Mandy had to go to work this morning.
Yesterday I bowled in the morning at ED's at West Edmonton Mall. I had a pretty good day. My first game was 156 with 3 splits and a miss then the second game I bowled 246 and the 3rd. I bowled 215. Not bad for an old man eh? Right now my average is 177 but I'm sure it will go up a few pins after that 617 for 3. I really enjoy bowling. This afternoon I have to practice a bit on my Harmonica because We play Friday evening at Lynwood Nursing Home with The Harmonika Rascals. Then we have a practice on Sat. morning with The Kompanions for our New Years Eve Gig at The Iron Wood Estates in St Albert. We are booked for new years to 2008. Hank is the youngest and he is 69, I'm 70 and Benny is 74. In the Rascals there is 6 of us and we are all over 70 except Hank. Next year we can say we are all over 70 haha. Guess we are not the youngest group on the block eh? They are all a great bunch to play with. Well I don't hear the sound of shoveling so guess I should go out and do it. Ha ha.

Sunday Evening

Hi everyone. I have had a busy week and really didn't write much on my blog. I just got home at 9:45pm. from a meeting with 4 guys and we talked about missions. Terry,Al and Jake are all going on a mission trip. 2 of them are going to Mexico City and one to Managua. I would love to go somewhere this year but as Wendy and I are planning to go to Chile in Feb. that will be my trip for the year I guess but I am going to pray about it for sure. That will probably cost me more than I can afford but we are going anyway I am looking forward to meeting Jorge's family. Next year I would love to go on a mission trip with Wendy.
This morning I went to church and really enjoyed the service. The pastor was talking about Putting First Things First in Your marriage. On my way home I was thinking how Blessed I am and how God has Blessed our marriage. I came home and just had to read more in my Bible again. I just couldn't stop thinking how God has Blessed our family and our church. How Blessed we are to be able to go to church on Saturday evening or Sunday morning and worship Him alongside of our Christian Brothers and Sisters. For me it is a time to Praise Him with words and Songs and thank Him again for all he does in our lives. What an Awsome God we serve.

Well here it is Tuesday morning and so far I haven't got anything done but some computer stuff. My fingers are tired and my butt is getting sore.
I didn't go to practice last night with The Harmonika Rascals because the roads were too bad. Well i don't have anything important to say so I hope you all have a great day and God Bless you all.

Hi this is Hank (Opps sorry about that)no it not hank but sometimes I feel like hank eh?
Well this weekend has been a very happy beautiful and special time for me. My little baby, Mandy got married to a wonderful man,Jorge from Chile. I was so proud of both of them. It is so cool to see your baby girl so in love with a man that loves her just as much. It was a beautiful wedding and I would be lying if I said I didn't cry. They made a beautiful couple and the smiles on their faces told the whole story. Tanya, Krisy and Wendy looked beautiful also. (they always look beautiful). Tom and Bob sure looked handsome. What an awsome family God has given me. The grandkids were all so beautiful and what good little kids they were. I can truthfuly say I was so impressed with the way everyone just jumped in and helped with everything it was just so neat. Thanks everyone. Mandy's and Jorge friends came and really made the day complete for them. All I can say is what a Beautiful Day it was. Thank you Lord. And may God bless everyone that was there.

Well here it is Wed. and this Sat. Mandy and Jorge are getting married. I guess most things are all ready. Hard to believe that I will be walking my baby down the isle. I am so proud of her and Jorge. They sure are a lovely couple. I have had the pleasure of getting to know him in the last 2 month and it has been fun. We have worked together, bowled together and ate ice-cream together(Maybe gained a few pounds together) but don't tell the girls. I am so proud of our Beulah family and friends for the way they have shown thier love for these 2. God has truely bless Mandy and Jorge with these people. Thank you Lord for all you done for them and for us. We fell truely Blessed as well.
I just picked up my NEW glasses today and believe it or not but I can see things now I haven't noticed in a while. They don't have the line in them so things seem to move a bit now but when I get used to them it will be much better. The glasses hasn't helped my hearing any but that's another story for another day. Bye 4 now.
