Well here I am again at this old computer. Things are going well. This morning we woke up to a light snow. It started about 5:30 pm last night and looked like it stopped about 9 pm but must have snowed in the early morning. It is pretty when everything is white but that usually means that it is a bit cold. We really can't complain about our winter this year as it has been pretty mild.
Didn't do much today. Went for coffee with the guys as usual and then just came home cleaned off a bench in the shop and then came in and waited for Wendy to get up  She worked a night shift yesterday and got home at 7:30  am and went to bed. I am looking forward to the next few days as she is off until until the 16th she goes in at 7 am.
Today after Wendy got up  I had lunch while she had breakfast and then we went into Lethbridge and did a few errands that had to be done. When we got home it was supper time so we had a real good supper.We bought a new label maker for some C D s that i am going to copy of the old Harmoniciares. A couple of guys I used to play  with in Edmonton.  I'll see if I can find a picture and post it here. Sure do miss those guys.
I am going to try to make some new CD's of just me and my ipad music.  I played for the seniors a couple of weeks ago an they liked it. I might have to have Tom record it for me. I download background music and then I put it on my ipad and play along with it . It sounds pretty good.
Tomorrow it is supposed to snow a bit again.  I was hoping maybe I could rake the lawn and do some spring cleaning of the yard.
Well I think I will finish this off and go see what Wendy is doing and maybe play a game or something .  So you have a great day and God Bless you all.

Wow, March has come and gone and now it is April and our weather is really nice. Wendy is sleeping and today is her first day off. She should be off for 4 days but has to work on Saturday. I believe it was a trade with someone.
We had a great Easter dinner on Saturday with Tanya, Tom and the kids and Kristy and Bob. I cooked a turkey and everything went fine. I think I should buy a smaller bird next time so we won't have so much leftovers.
We are going to listen to a friend of our Steve Hill on Saturday he sings and plays guitar. He does Garth Brooks impersonations and is real good at it.

I played at the Senior Centre on Thursday evening. Wendy was off so she went along to. It was a fun night and the people seemed to like it. I got a standing novation at the end and that always makes it seem worth while when your done. They are a super bunch to play for. They like all the old songs and that is right up my ally and they pay me for it. I played songs like (Love letters in the sand (Pat Boon) It's four in the morning (Farron Young , did some Johnny Cash and Elvis and Dean Martin and old Frank Sinatra and they loved it.

Then I played at our Church on Friday and Sunday.
Last nigh a friend of mine came over, he is learning to play the Harmonica and doing pretty good at it. He is just learning on the little harmonica's and wanted me to give him a few pointers.  Because I don't read music I don't think I was much help.

Yesterday I went into Lethbridge and picked up my grandson Kellen and he helped me pick up lots of tree branches and sticks and take them to the back so I can take them to the dump on Saturday.  What a big helper he is. He is only 8 but we had a great time together. I will have to pick him up another day and have him help me rake up the lawn.  It snowed just a bit last night. Just enough to cover the ground.

Well not much else to write about so I will close for today. I pray you will all have a great day and God Bless you all.
