Passion, Perfection, Power

Feb 28

Hi again! Passion, perfection and power are some strong positive words to use regarding our Canadian Olympic athletes. Their extreme passion drives them towards perfection which produces powerful results. Wow, 29 medals! Aren’t you proud of them once more?

What’s Your Next Thing?

Jan 31

Hi there! Do you always know what your next thing in life will be? This morning two teens skidded down our snowy Churchville hill and hit the tree in the front of the little house diagonally across the street from our house.

Sep 29

Welcome to fall y’all! I have been tricking Gary all summer. We have a small two-storey barn in our backyard – downstairs is his workshop and upstairs his office. I have been decluttering the mess in both places that has accumulated far too long.

Well, Well, Well!

Aug 30

Hi from Churchville again! “I got it!” exclaimed our nine year old, adventuresome granddaughter, Carleigh. She desperately wanted to go down our backyard well that Gary is reconstructing so one day he let her climb down the ladder into three feet of very cold water. We gave her an old speaker that had a large magnet on the back of it which she plunged into the...
