The End of The Year

Here it is 10 minutes after 3 and I should be getting ready to go play at The Ironwood Estates. I have to pick Hank up at 4:30 so I should be showering and getting ready. This has to be short. So guess what Wendy got yesterday? It sure makes my little Cannon 3.2 look like a midget. Hope she will enjoy it. I'm sure she will. She loves taking pictures and is pretty good at it so it should be lots of fun for her in the new year.
Well this year is almost over and it has been a good year. My health has been good and I seem to have everything that I need and some of what I want or thought I wanted anyway. I have had a great year of bowling and a fair year of music. I am hoping that this coming year we will be playing more. I really love playing the Harmonica with the guys. I hope that we get a chance to make a new CD's with Benny's new recorder but then again who would buy them. Oh well it was a great thought eh? I could send them to all my relatives but maybe they don't want them. Who like music for the 40's,50 and 60's??? Maybe we should start playing some new one's eh? Hey that's a good idea. Well If I don't get going I'll be late so I pray that everyone will have a GREAT NEW YEAR. I'll post a new picture of The Kompanions in our New outfit. when I get home . Bye for now and don't drink and drive.

Love you Floyd

Friday Morning

Well here it is the end of the week already. How time flies when your having fun eh? For me it flies even when I'm not having fun. LOL. At my age things seem to go much faster than they used too. Ha ha. Well I have a few things to do today so I should get after them but it is easier to just sit here on the old computer eh?
I have to make a few CD's and send them out in the next few days. My aunt in Florida and my brother in Conn. and my son in New York . Not sure they will like my music but then again they have probably never heard it before and who knows they might just like it. I only have 5 CD's so far. 2 with The Rascals and 2 with The Harmoniciares and one with the Kompanions. We make them at a friend of mine who has a small recording unit. One of these days we are going to go to a studio and record one.Well here it is 10:30 and I am still here . Got to go buy for today.

Wednesday Morning

We had a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS . It was just great to have everyone home for Christmas. All went well except that our little grandson was sick all weekend. It was Jorge's first Christmas with our family. He sure fits into our crazy little family and we all love him. God has blessed us so much this year. We all ate too much and probably gained a few pounds. I know I did for sure. I sure miss Tom, Tanya and the kids and Bob and Kristy. I sat at the table all by myself this morning and had tea and toast. Just me and the dog . Jorge and Mandy were still sleeping and Mum was working. Boy was it quiet. I hope and pray that everyone had a great Christmas and now I have to get ready for The New Year. I play New Years Eve at the Ironwood Estates with The Kompanions so I should brush up on the songs we will be playing. I practiced a bit last night but like they say practice makes perfect. Not sure I have that much time but I'll be better anyway, right? I talked to my Sister (Betty) and my brother (Merlin and his wife) and then I called my favorite aunt (Wayna) who are all living in Florida. I was a bit worried about the tornadoes I heard about on the TV yesterday but everyone was fine. Well I'm off to bowl this morning and then I should go help a friend put his new front door in. That will probably take up most of my day and then I'll practice a bit . Have a great day.

Home for Christmas

Our whole family is home for Christmas. God is so good. thank you Lord for letting us all gather here for Christmas. This year we have our newest member to our family. Mandy's husband Jorge is with us. I have to thank the Lord for 3 awesome son-in laws. Jorge fits into our family so well. The Lord has blessed us in so many ways again this year. We have all 3 of our beautiful daughters here with their husbands and our 4 beautiful grand kids. We have so much to thank God for. The safe travel getting here and we are all in good health (Sigh) except for little Kellen who is not feeling the greatest. He has a bad cold. Wendy sister Cynthia and her 4 children just came over so except for John our whole family is here now. We are going to celebrate our Christmas tomorrow instead of Monday because Tom and Tanya go to Toms Dad's on Christmas this year. Bob and Kristy are going to Bob's mom and dad's tomorrow evening in Spruce Groove. The poor Christmas tree is loaded down with presents again this year. It will take us a long time to open all the gifts tomorrow for sure. The kids and some of the bigger kids can't wait for tomorrow to come. I have busy day coming as I have a 22 lb. turkey to stuff and get ready for noon tomorrow with all the trimmings. Mashed potatoes, turnips, Sweet potatoes and corn and cranberry sauce and off course gravy. Plus Wendy has some great deserts after dinner. She made some butter tarts all kinds of squares, cookies, fruit cake and some (Cherry Cheese Pie's ) My favorite. She spoils me but I love her for it. Oh and there is chocolates every where you look. Ha ha. We'll probably all gain a few pounds for sure. I hope and pray that everyone who reads this blog will have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May God Bless you and your family.

Thursday evening.

I got a knock on my door at 10:00 this morning and it was The Future Shop Del. truck with our new Dryer. Our old one died just the other day. Mum told me yesterday that she bought me a new dryer for Christmas. Just what I always wanted. Ha ha.Well we needed it with everyone coming for Christmas. So I got out the tools and went and bought some pipe and elbows(Metal ) because the guy said that we shouldn't use the plastic flex pipe because the new dryer are much hotter that the old ones. However it will probably take a few days as I will have to run a whole new pipe out and it is above the electric panel. LOL. Well the first thing was that the cord was about 4 inches shorter that the old one and it wouldn't reach so I went to the store and measured a few others and they are all the same size. Seems they make them shorter now. (Why) Who knows but they do. So I had to run a new box in from the electric panel. Then I find out that I will have a bit more problems cutting thru a wall and some floor joist to get that stupid metal pipe to fit up in to the top of the electric panel to the dryer vent. I hope I can get it done tomorrow before everyone gets here but not sure. I'll try. I find that I get a bit grumpy when things don't fit or work just right. I must be getting old eh?? Sounds like a good excuse to me. Well so much for my day today.

Tuesday Afternoon

I am late posting again, so whats new eh? Well we have had a busy week. Wendy and I went to Clareshome on Friday morning to see Clayton, Amanda and little Brianna. Troy, Hearther and little Emma came too. Troy, Clayton and I put up a couple of small walls and some drywall. They are going to put in a sink for Amanda for washing hair. Then on Saturday afternoon Clayton, Amanda, Wendy and I went to Lethbridge and had lunch with Tom, Tanya and the kids.It was really good to see them even if it was only for a little while. Then it was ON The ROAD Again. Seems like we have been doing that a lot lately. We get to spend time together and sometimes we even get to take(between sleeps) first hers then mine. Ha ha. She is kinda cute when she is asleep. Wendy has the same problem with our car as I have with our TV. Turn them on and we go to sleep. Went and talked to a Lady about doing some work in her house but not sure she wants someone part time. I think she wants someone to just go in and do it quick and I can't do that. We'll see. I think 3 or 4 weeks and I could have it pretty well done. I did a few things that had to be done and now it's time to just go watch the hockey game.

Sunday Afternoon

It is about 5:17pm. and soon I will be going back to the church again today to serve after the production tonight. Tonight is the last night and it will probably be a late one. Lots of people have come to the musical and hopefully many have come to know the LORD because of it. Christmas is only 14 days away. I am praying that everyone I know will have a great Christmas and that God will touch each one of their hearts in a very special way. Many time we seem to get so caught up in the (Christmas thing) that we forget what Christmas is and why we celebrate it. Many people think of Christmas as Santa and presents and never realize that it is Jesus Christ they should be celebrating. We as Christians should be watching for the oppertunity to tell those that don't know. God has been so good to us we shouldn't forget telling others about Him, especialy this time of year.
Wendy decorated our tree and it is beautifull. Our home looks so good at Christmas with all the decorations that she puts out. Thanks sweetie.

Ya real exciting so far eh?? I will be heading back to Clareshome on the 15 to put up a wall for clayton and Amanda and play with little Breanna. She sure is cute.Clayton and Amanda have a few vidio's of her on their blog. Check it out if you have time. Well got to go do my todo list that Wendy left for me.(sigh)
