got to see the temple and checked out some wooden elephants. Jodie said they got to touch a real live one!! How exciting for them. There are monkeys that come onto their patio at their hotel which is located in the jungle.

I am not saying how old she is but I can say that she can now ask for Senior Discounts legally!!
Happy Birthday Joanne - we will party in the summer when we are all together again.

They got to see elephants and enjoyed a dinner on the patio with a nice glass of white wine by the looks of it. Should be in a sippy cup I think.
They are walking very well as you can see by Charlie's little stroll - check out the swinging arms - just like a big boy. Less work for Dave and Jodie if they can walk on their own - maybe a little slow going but easier on the back I am sure.

It has been a weird year for ice and it turned out that this was the first weekend that the resorts were able to get their huts on the ice. The guys were out about 6 kilometres from shore - I wouldn't be out there with them - I would have been fishing from shore - but I am sure they wouldn't have been out there if it wasn't safe. Rejean said that some guys even had their trucks out on the ice!! That's bold!!
Today it looks as tho the trees are covered in snow but the ice is still there.

Everyone enjoyed the luncheon at the Hall. Sometimes we don't have good experiences at local restaurants - maybe because there is sometimes so many of us. We may choose to do a lunch at a local restaurant one month then back to the Hall for the next month and continue to revisit the Hall every second month. It supports the local community hall and it is a very relaxing atmosphere that everyone seemed to enjoy. The seating arrangement let everyone see each other and made it easier to talk to people across the room. We went around the table introducing ourselves and where we lived. It is good to see everyone out and enjoying themselves.
Next month Wakamata Shores Resort...

We did a little tweaking on the head board - we didn't like the look of the pine showing thru the openings so we decided to put some dark smoked glass in there - but trying to find exactly what we were looking for proved to be a bit of a challenge. We finally had to get two pieces of dark plexiglass cut in the Sault and decided to leave the paper backing on it so you couldn't see thru it and put glass over top of it. It looks exactly what we were looking for - very dark smoky glass - almost like a mirror.
Just have to get some new rugs and a new blind - eventually...

I love cauliflower in my salads that I have every nite with dinner. But I draw the line at paying $9.00 for a head of cauliflower that wasn't even in the best condition. Even green onions were $1.89 and I always pay .99 cents. I paid $12.46 for 2.8 pounds of green seedless grapes and $3.49 for a head of iceberg lettuce.
I remember playing Their Greatest Hits over and over again listening to my favourite songs - the sound track to my teenage years. I regret that I never saw them perform live but there are some great concerts recorded that make up for that and also The History of the Eagles that is very interesting.
Rest in Peace

One day Grandma and Grandpa will be teaching the boys how to catch and cook fish - maybe not these fish but some more local.
I have been hunting on line for a duvet cover and it is becoming a very tiring experience. I know what I want but finding it is another matter.
Hopefully it will be finished in a few weeks and I can finally have my new bed.

That first picture was of the final score for a bowling game. That is my 225 score!! Never in my life have I scored that high. So proud!!
We next switched to darts and I must say that Doug's hand was soooooo steady - he was getting bull's eyes with each dart. I was impressed because, as you know, they call me Tremor Girl. But I did manage to win a couple of games of darts - no one was more surprised than me at that.
It certainly was a fun night and I bet we do it again this winter.
Diane wants to try ping pong…and I want to try golf...

Someone had a death grip on little Monty - I think it was either Jim or Tish.
The sign says not to "poke or tease" the animals but nothing about not feeding them. The poor goat didn't get any. Maybe when I go I will feed the goat.
Fearless little boys.
