Friends --- Family ---- people are always saying family just can't be friends it doesn't it work. That your friends have to be someone not connected to you through family . But I beg to differ...this lady has been my sister in law(Barb) ..for over 23 years ....but she has been my friend through all those years ...she has been honest ...loving ...and understanding ....all the things you like for in a friend....and yes we do say what is on our hearts and on our mind ...we don't play a game... for both of us know life is real. So the next time you think a family member can't be your friend....remember it is you that stops and makes those decisions and you stop what could be an awesome sister in law or brother in law from becoming what they are in your life a friend. Love ya David and Neti ..sorry I couldn't get the picture to load(I think I saved it wrong) ..boohoo again these people are family and friends ..and I thank them for that .. I love them dearly
Love you all

(And I hope that in time I can become a friend to those that will open the door .)

Sunday at Edith lake
Well this weekend has been a fast one …from Barriere going to Salmon Arm and then setting up for the school run . We are now at Edith lake for a bit …we will see how the wind goes. This lake is a short drive to Melissa school and seeing school starts tomorrow we felt we should get close for the first week and see how things go. We still have two more meetings of family to do so ..we will be off and heading down the road . It has been a fun summer . We meet some wonderful people made new friends and visited with old ones . We saw family and had family came visit us . Thanks to all and thanks for the memories. Two very new and wonderful people we meet were Nigel and Wendy …Nigel is from Australia and Wendy from Barriere ….yes Wendy is DJ sister a very awesome lady ..who travels a lot and so does Nigel . Boy some of the places he has been ..both him and Wendy have been around the world. I know Mom Ivy misses her daughter ..but she loves that her daughter's life is full. We had the privilege of camping with them for about a week and a half ….they have built their retirement home in Australia a home that overlooks the ocean and where you can watch the dolphins play from the sundeck ….wow Australia. But for now their home is Texas ..when they are home …Wendy leaves for Italy this next week and then Greece ..she does a lot of traveling ..I asked her to spend me pictures …these are places I will never make it to …so Wendy please send lots. And thanks again for the time shared. And Nigel send some of those awesome recipes you have .

Thanks to KimB for the paper and elements used.

Well this months have been an eye opener to a few things …have you ever wanted some one or persons to just be a part of your family or even just to be a friend …but for the right reasons …not to be there just to get goods on you to spread to others …gossip ..and even maybe turn it a bit so it keeps walls or doubts there you can never figure out if they want to be a friend or foe …this has been my thing this year …see time does not go on forever... there is not a tomorrow that all can be fix. I have always wanted to be a part of a family and I am with my family kids …but there has always been this place where you are not allow to cross you are made to wonder…in these last days I don’t want phoney I want real ….so when asked what are you ..friend or would you answer...honestly?????

I hope you all understand what I am trying to say ...I love you all and would love for all us to have memories together and be family ...but most of all FRIENDS to make a FAMILY.
