National Pie Day coming up
We are now halfway through another month with much sadness for nurses here.
When CCA Susan Oulton had come to work in the morning her husband Dana, 50, had passed away suddenly while using a snowblower at home. We are with her and family. She is a great friend and great CCA.
We had one more big snowstorm, so no school today.
Our sympathy goes out to Jill Blaikie, who two days before Christmas lost her husband’s sister in a car accident. My nurse left here after 11 p.m. driving in the storm. It was very rough, but she made it. Her husband has a half-tonne truck.
As always I got very many gifts, cards and food galore. Thank you Catherine, River Hebert, for taking her time to look up recipes she kept of mine. She and her husband celebrate 57 years of marriage this year.
My roommate, Shirley MacCallum, R.N., had visitors from Springhill yesterday, Frances, Scott and Ruth Beaton. I also enjoyed their visit. I hope your new Subway business in Springhill is being enjoyed. I miss seeing my daughter and husband , Philomene and Mike. Shirley and I have enjoyed a few subs.
I would like to hear from you readers with your news.
