Has you can see in the one picture the bruise..she can't believe in all those years

drink. I would ask you keep her in your prayers ..she has a scope at the end of the
month . So Mom this layout is for you ..I hope you like it ...and always remember

Well I hope everybody is having a great week .. remember smile a little...... and laugh a lot

To all my friends and family to those who stop by:


Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence.
(Most importantly the last sentence)
There once was a little boy who had a bad
temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails
and told him that every time he lost his
temper, he must hammer a nail into the back
of the fence. The first day the boy had
driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next
few weeks, as he learned to control his
anger, the number of nails hammered daily
gradually dwindled down. He discovered
it was easier to hold his temper than to
drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the boy didn't
lose his temper at all. He told his father
about it and the father suggested that the
boy now pull out one nail for each day that
he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the young boy was finally
able to tell his father that all the nails
were gone. The father took his son by the
hand and led him to the fence He said, 'You
have done well, my son, but look at the
holes in the fence. The fence will never be
the same When you say things in anger,
they leave a scar just like this one. You
can put a knife in a man and draw it out.
It won't matter how many times you say I'm
sorry, the wound is still there. ' A verbal
wound is as bad as a physical one.
Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They
make you smile and encourage you to succeed.
They lend an ear, they share words of praise
and they always want to open their hearts to us.'

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole.

Well this last week we were able to do some traveling ....we headed over to David & Neti's was so nice. We also got time to stop and have a coffee with Barb ( it was awesome to see you girl). Sorry we missed you Miles time . Then we head over to Sparwood ...I was so excited to see Neti girl ...hehehe. The weather was cool going over ...but then awesome for us to be able to have some fun. Well those two have been fishing up a storm ...the ling cods they have caught ...awesome one fish had to be about 13 pounds . So they were going to teach us ..Barry and I have never caught a Ling this was going to be awesome experience. We had to get our Alberta fishing license to go to this reservoir...where they had caught a lot of ling cod. Well there we were fishing at 11:30 at night. 5 bull trout and 2 ling cod later ...we headed home...but with no fish..not the right size or breed of fish ..giggle giggle(but lots of laughter and fun). If you see the picture with the red eyed monster that was our Dave. Boy no trouble sleeping that night . The next day over to Suzanne lake ..beautiful day and scenery...we won't talk about fishing ...( Barry was the only one to catch a fish ). Neti cooked up a mess of awesome Ling Cod was so goooooooood.

Then in one evening sis was teaching me how to make pizza dough and load it up with goods. She also had some great ideas for saving time with vegetables and freezing them . She is trying to teach me how to eat health ...between all my SIL I should start eating the right stuff...giggle.

Then one evening sis and I went for a drive ..she show me where the Elk are ...and boy it was beautiful ...thanks Neti ...I loved it . We had to have seen 300 hundred of them ...and there were deer hiding in there to. What a way to end a evening and my visit with you. David and Neti thanks for the love and the fun...can't wait to meet. Hope you guys had a great ride on GoldWing after we left. Hey David remember to send me some picture of all those ling cod ..would love to show all the fisherman...hehehe

Awesome Pizza
