I am back!

Seems I have been a bad boy when it comes to blogging lately, sorry about that to all my throngs of faithful readers... however we have been busy as usual.

On Thursday, we travelled up to Waterloo to enjoy a wing night out with a gang of friends.


There were 9 of us all told, and it was a good chance to say goodbye to Deb and Gerard, who will be down to Florida to visit us in March of next year. One of my faithful readers, Susan H. was giving me a ruff time at wing night about missing too many evenings lately on my blog, hence robbing her of her nightly enjoyment! Yes, there is pressure being a blogger...

On Friday Judy and I, along with Tom and Cheryl from Richmond Hill, travelled to Oakwood, Ontario, about a 3 1/2 hour drive for us, to attend a Celebration of Life for a very good Friend, Ruth Kelly. Back in the early Seventies, I worked with her Husband, Guy, at Victoria and Grey Trust Company.

We spent many good times with Guy and Ruth over the past years, and she will be greatly missed by all her Family and Friends.

Back in Woodsock today, we joined up with Chris and Kristina to make the big move for them back into their renovated home. They were all VERY happy to be back in their home after being forced out for 3 weeks while the renos occurred. This job finished exactly on time, and worked out real great! Tonight we have a bunch of "Happy Campers"!

You can see the stress and strain on the kid's faces as we were all getting ready for the big move today! Too busy to get any pictures today, but there was lots of smiles around!

Till tomorrow...



  1. So sorry to read about your loss. Glad you have so many memories of your dear friend.

    "Home Sweet Home!"

  2. Thank you John. I feel so much better now!

  3. Glad to see you back. Sorry for the lose of your friend... that's a nice photo of her.

  4. Welcome back, sad to hear about the loss of your friend, but you still have some great memories.
    Nice that kids have moved back into their house and all settled again, you can head south soon, now.

  5. Sad to hear of the loss of your friend, John.

    Glad to hear everyone is now "back home" in their newly renovated digs. I'll bet Charlie and Gwenny will be sliding along those smooth floors in no time.

  6. Good to see you guys as always. Glad you were able to go with us to Ruth's memorial and join us for dinner after. Sounds like the move back into the updated digs went well. I am sure Kristina is over the top about the renos you have done this year. Looks great.

  7. Nice work on the renovation. I'm sure the family is glad to be moved back in.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend.
