July 20th,2008

Well as most of you already read today was my birthday. I think Wendy posted it on her blog and I got about 6 or 7 Happy Birthday wishes on face book from around the world. Thanks guys.

My beautiful wife and I have been home alone for the last few days and it has been fun. Not that we don't have fun when everyone is here but it has been nice and gave us an opportunity to spend some time together just the 2 of us.
One day we went to breakfast at Denny's in Lethbridge. We went and walked up to the special train bridge here in Lethbridge and spent the afternoon. It was tiring but well worth every moment. Today we went to church and then I went to a Jam session in Shauneshy. Not sure how to spell that. It was a lot of fun but a bit different than the jam sessions that I have gone to. I did play 4 songs and really enjoyed it.
Tomorrow Mandy and Jorge and little Josiah and his dad and sister are coming home in the afternoon. My daughter Kristy and her husband Bob will be home here sometime in the morning for only a few days and then they are off to South Africa for 2 years. Sigh. It will be hard not seeing them for 2 years but they will be doing Gods work and they love it. I know God will bless them for it someday and will keep them safe for us.
Yesterday Wendy and I went walking down by Old Man River and Tanya and the kids joined us. That was fun. Then in the afternoon Wendy and I went over to Tanya and Tom for supper and played a game after supper. Then Tom and I went to the church and Tom helped set up all the mic's and interments for the Sunday service. I didn't do much as I am new there and really didn't know what to do or how they set it up so I just watched. They had a bit of a problem and Wendy finially picked me up at the church about 1 am. and we came home.
My sister Betty and my brother Merlin called me today and wished me a happy birthday too.
Tomorrow I should go for coffee with the guys at the Cactus restaurant. Hope you all enjoyed listening to beautiful niece play her harmonica. If you missed it just scroll down.

Tuesday evening

Hi everyone. Guess it is about time I updated this silly old blog.We have been very busy with familey and friends coming to see us and staying a while. 3 weeks ago Wendy's brother and her sister and her family and now Jorge's dad and his sister are here for 3 weeks. Jorge has been busy showing them around Picture Butte and Lethbridge. It is so good to have his dad here. He is such a nice guy and I really enjoy having him and his daughter her. Jorge's dad is a pastor in Chile and pastors 4 churches there so when he is home he is a really busy man. He is a real Godly man. Jorge is so happy to have his dad and sister her. Tomorrow I think we are all going to Waterton Lake and that should be lots of fun showing his dad around.
Our garden and back yard is just so pretty right now with all the flowers out in full bloom. Wendy is so happy with it. It is just beautiful.
This evening we went to watch Jorge play soccor but we had a storm and they had to stop playing half way thru. We had hail stones about the size of golf balls. We just got some rain in Picture Butte. Guess wwe live in the right end of town eh? It hailed for about 10 minurtes while we were in Lethbridge. Then we came home and had some supper and now every one is just sitting around or playing on the computers.Wendy is just loving haveing all three of her girl home. Kristy and Bob will be going to Red Deer on thursday and then coming back on Monday afternoon and then flying out to South Africa on Thursday afternoon next week.
We are have a great day and hope and pray you are all having a great day with us.
God Bless you all.
