Pine Lake Update

It was a sunny, though slightly cool day here at PLC.  Music Camp finished up, the kids got their awards, the parents showed up to take them home, and the faculty drove off trying to stay awake!  We also said good-bye to our candidates and prayed God’s blessing on them.  We’ll see them again mid-September in Winnipeg.

Camp being camp, it wasn’t surprising to see a bicycle up the flag pole here at good ol’ PLC!

Phil and Amanda are with us for the weekend.  This morning we enjoyed a canoe ride on Pine Lake…having Phil paddle is like having a small outboard strapped to the canoe.  He did a bit of fishing – but as the song says; “but he caught on fishes”.

Susan is here…she was here for Music Camp and heads home tomorrow.  It is two years tomorrow that they were wed!  So a very happy anniversary wish to Jason and Susan.  Hopefully by tomorrow night Susan will be home with Jason.


A very generous offer

Posted here are four photos that are in the final running to be turned into a painting.

You see my very talented aunt Freda is an oil painter…and a very good one!  She’s offered to do me a painting and I’m very fond of Mount Rundle (top).  It is a unique shaped mountain and was the first one that Phil and I climbed.  (Remember the bleeding feet Phil?)

And of course the wild life around the mountains is always stirring…rugged and fearless!

But I love the Three Sisters (bottom)…

So if you wish to vote you may do so…top, elk, sheep or bottom!

Happy Birthday Cath!

A very happy birthday wish to Catherine – my youngest sister!  I was up at the Cottage with Nanny Eastland  in 1968 when she was born.  As the cottage had no phone each day we would take the boat across to Morrison’s General Store where we bought most of our ongoing supplies.  This day there was a message to call home collect.

The phone was a wooden one hanging on the wall and a handle on one side that you cranked to ring the operator…I know it sounds like something from 50 years previously….and then the operator phoned Hamilton to my parents where my Dad answered and told me I had a baby sister.

Well the years continue to click by and now Cath is a wife and mother….but best of all she’s my sister!  So we wish her the very best on her birthday and look forward to the day we live close enough to celebrate together.
