Do You Really Know What You Are Saying?

Jul 01

Happy Canada Weekend Everyone! “He stayed around until the last dog was hung!” I commented to our daughter Sara about a recent newcomer to our Milton church. Sara, laughingly exclaimed, “What are you saying?” She had never heard about dogs being hung. I will let you “Google” that idiom since I am writing this blog in our car. I’ve found the older we get the more...

Do You Really Know Who You Are?

May 31

Hi there: Apprently a current trend is to look up one’s ancestral roots. We gave into the advertising and so for a combo Valentine’s/birthday gift Gary purchased a DNA kit for me.

Standing Out

Apr 28

Hi Y’All! Do you know much about heather? I don’t mean the female name but the low-lying shrub that is iconic to Scotland. I didn’t either until I bought 3 plants a couple of years ago.

These words, however, do not describe the killer of 17 lives in Florida recently; except for the passion...

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. As usual they were driving too fast – probably off to an exam at the local high school. I’m just glad I didn’t get hit while I was...

New Traditions

Dec 30

Happy New Year from Churchville! So what’s your favourite Christmas tradition? About 15 of us adults from Churchville ventured out on a cold, starry Friday night the week before Christmas to sing to our neighbours. We then headed over to a neighbour’s home (this couple have lived here for 43 years!) for goodies and conversation. This yearly tradition is...
