No more Kathy Smith workout dvds for me this week. You get a great workout doing the wood. It is both cardio and weights. Some of those logs are mighty heavy - and all the bending and lifting and walking in the snow - that is enough for me ;o)
See ya Bye

I finally get to a chair and meet up with Fran, the person who will be in charge of taking my blood. She is very pleasant and explains everything to me. I let her know my previous problems with the procedure. I give her my right arm and she finds my vein and inserts the needle and immediately the blood starts flowing. I can't watch the needle insertion but I can watch the blood coming out - I like to watch it filling the bag. There is something about seeing your own blood that gives me a feeling of satisfaction - I am helping someone else who needs it. I believe in Karma so I believe that when I need blood, it will be there for me. I know I have said it before, it is such a small thing to do that brings such good things. And it can save 3 lives with just one donation.
Thessalon will no longer be holding the blood donor clinics - we will have to go to Blind River for the next one. Not enough donors in Thessalon plus it was getting too expensive to warrent a stop in our town. Just when Clarence was getting the hang of volunteering and baking my favourite chocolate chip cookies. I will miss him and them.
See ya Bye

My sister Susan lives near and works in the town of Listowel and her husband, Jack, is from Atwood. Everyone knows everyone so this is going to be a loss felt by all.
They died protecting their community - they are heros.
They will surely be missed...

A trick hole - you had to avoid the snow stacks.
The first hole - a par 10 - they all were.
This guy was hitting them pretty good with his Cricket paddle
Joy handing out the score cards and giving us the rules and regulations - tough course.
Arnold was all decked out in his special beer belt - I think it held at least 8 cans and bottles, not counting the ones in his pocket - I called him the Beer Bitch
