Back to Fort Whyte Alive

There are 2 places that I love, but haven’t been to visit much this year.   My vacation in Kruger National Park took up plenty of time, along with my move and then my mother’s fall that broke her shoulder.

A Walk with Angie & Emily

After I arrived at Vancouver Airport, I picked up my rental car, dug the GPS out of my bag and set it for Angie’s place.  Amazingly enough, I arrived at her place safe & sound without having to have made any detours or adjustments.  I think this may have been the first time that the… Continue reading A Walk with Angie & Emily
