A good deed

I would love to thank a gentleman named Shawn (a carpenter) who had the wisdom to turn around on the highway to help me and my two grandkids when the thermostat went on my silver sebring, that is somewhere there being worked on. He went out of his way to help unload my car into his truck and drive me and my grandkids to a destination. Your kindness reminded me of humanity again.

Williams Lake

To the patient and creative people who work at Williamsons Lake. Great big cuddles and hugs for the way you manage to be so pleasant to to so many kids (when their parents can be so annoying) and insure that their experience is a fun one.

Vandalism

Vans of growls to the person seen hitting our van at Williamsons lake. You pretended to be a responsible and caring person and then wrote a bogus number on the note. Shame on you!!

Co-pilots

Twelve and half hugs to my co-pilots Sharon and Zac for navigation skills that made my trip to Tyson’s wedding possible. Through the heat and freeway exits you made it possible for me to attend. Even thought the trip was 12.5 hours we had quite and adventure – thanks again Barbara

Cousins

Happy growls to my dog cousins in Fruitvale. For 6 days you showed me great hospitality sharing toys and treats and sometimes even your humans bed… but I was glad to get home to my pool and sticks – Eowyn

Highway drivers

There is a sign signalling the end of the passing lane, when you see it, hurry up and get by me. I’m using crusie control it’s not as if I sped up right at the end to be a horrible person.

Opera

Cheers to the Opera Kelowna’s production of Bizet’s Caremen. A wonderful chance to get dressed up and see something different. The voices were magnificent! The orchestra was spectacular! Thank you for a good excuse to get out of town for an evening.

Enderby

A happy birthday to the new friends we met in Kelowna that were in town from Enderby. Thanks for sharing the dancefloor with us! You know how to have a good time and make a girl feel included.

Veggies

The veggies from the market right now make me wonder if I have ever eaten a proper green pepper before. So much flavour and freshness! When winter comes and I have to shop at the grocery store again I am going to be sad.

Ball

Sad to see the end of the ball season already, but thanks to the organisers for making it happen. And cheers to the other teams for their patience and good humour.

LUNA

So excited for LUNA. The projects, the people, the magic. And excited to be contributing. I’m not an artist but I’ll try my best. It’s all about having fun anyway right?

Out

Rant to the businesses that run out of my favourite treats. I come to the drive through for that specific thing and you don’t have it. Makes my guilt for eating fast food all the worse.

Smoke

The back of my throat could use a break from this smoke. It feels like a cold has been coming on for the last two weeks! Some nice, slow rain for the next week or so would be nice right about now.
