Our rain didn’t last long enough, but what we had was di­vine. Hope­fully, we will be blessed with more.

Sym­pa­thy goes out to Burt McWade, W. Pugwash, and all fam­ily mem­bers on the pass­ing of his brother, Pa­trick, P.E.I., on July 30; the same to Wally Ar­mour and all fam­ily mem­bers on the pass­ing of wife and mother, Colleen, Ox­ford, at CRHCC on July 31.

On a brighter note, a beau­ti­ful wed­ding was held at St. Thomas More Catholic Church on Satur­day af­ter­noon when Su­san, (daugh­ter of Ste­wart and Chris Mur­ray), Springhill, was joined in Holy Mat­ri­mony to An­drew van Segge­len. Their re­cep­tion was held at The Cot­tages at Cam­bra Sands, Mala­gash. The van Segge­len’s will re­lo­cate to Ot­tawa. (I am so lucky to live next door so I can en­joy all th­ese lovely events while sit­ting at my ta­ble.)

Win­ner of the Fire­men’s 50/50 draw on Wed­nes­day night was Deb­bie Blackie; and con­so­la­tion win­ner for Chase the Ace at the RCL, Peace Branch 60, Pugwash, on Satur­day was Peggy Bol­long. The win­ner of the Pugwash Co-Op’s 50/50 draw on Sun­day was Stephen Rus­sell. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all.

Elaine Nepjuk, Gulf Shore, Peggy Allen and Lil­lix Pol­ley were vis­i­tors with Mary Doyle this week. Lil­lix en­joyed swim­ming lessons this past week.

Birth­day greet­ings go out this week to Ni­cole Reeves, Cal­gary; Brenda (BJ) Din­gle, Sher­mans Dale, Pa., Myr­tle El­liott Smith, Wal­lace Bay; Mor­gan Fisher, Pierce­land, Sask., Nancy Hus­ton and Lawrence Pat­ter­son, Pugwash. Wed­ding an­niver­sary wishes go out to Jean Marc and Ch­eryl Au­bin, Pugwash River.

Ron­alda and Barry Smith, and grand­son Ai­dan, were to Hal­i­fax on Thurs­day, where Ron­alda kept an ap­point­ment, and Ai­dan stayed to visit with rel­a­tives. On Fri­day, Ella Lock­hart and Judy Brown, Westch­ester, vis­ited with Shirley White, and they en­joyed lunch at the Sand­piper Restau­rant. On Satur­day, Ron­alda, Barry and Shirley trav­elled to St. John and brought back Char­lene and Kelsey. On Sun­day, they all met Ai­dan in Stewiack, and vis­ited lots of tourist sites.

Hard to be­lieve that it was 19 years on Aug. 4 since a dozen fam­ily mem­bers and friends and I were in Regina to at­tend my daugh­ter dana’s grad­u­a­tion from RCMP De­pot in Regina. Very proud mo­ment. How time flies.

I was in­vited out for sup­per at Mac­Far­lane’s Lan­tern Restau­rant on Fri­day evening, lo­cated where the old Hill­crest Restau­rant, S. Pugwash. used to be. While I like to give all our fine eat­ing spots recog­ni­tion for their great food, I was told the clams at Mac­Far­lane’s would melt in your mouth. And they do. highly rec­om­mend that you try them. While there, I met Freddy Very and Sharon Cham­ber­lain, sis­ters from Ver­mont and Louisiana, who pur­chased the Old Tide’s Inn prop­erty a few years ago. Met them a long time ago, and I didn’t rec­og­nize them, but they did me. So was great chat­ting with them again. In­spir­ing to hear how they love our vil­lage.

Had all my usual call­ers this week, and very pleased to have Harold Pat­ter­son drop in on Sun­day evening with his daugh­ter and son, Kerry Anne and Kevin, from Mon­treal, who have been visit­ing their par­ents for a week.

Prayers please for Irene My­ers, Roena Jamieson, Gail Mac­Far­lane and all oth­ers not en­joy­ing good health at this time.

Thought for the week: “Life is not all that com­pli­cated, but peo­ple are.”
