Greet­ings to all I hope you are en­joy­ing the lovely weather which is sup­posed to con­tinue for sev­eral more days...can spring be far be­hind?

Mike and Judy Bor­wick were re­cent vis­i­tors to Van­cou­ver to visit with Matt and Jenna and took their grand­daugh­ter Sarah from Red Deer with them as this was her birth­day present from grandpa and grandma. I’m sure all had a fun time and it’s some­thing that Sarah will al­ways re­mem­ber. Spe­cial times are so im­por­tant to kids.

The Les Bell fam­ily spent a few days in Saska­toon as Les was at­tend­ing a type of fo­rum called the Cana­dian In­ter­na­tional Grain In­sti­tute and deals with ways to move grain to mar­ket. I hope I have that right. While there they, of course, vis­ited Nathan who is at univer­sity there.

Judy Bor­wick in­formed me that Holly is in Ayampe, Ecuador teach­ing English and brush­ing up on her Span­ish. Holly loves to go to dif­fer­ent places in the world to learn how oth­ers live and to help them in their own way. I re­fer to her as a “free-spirit” in the world.

This past week­end I and the Eremko’s, and Den­nis and Stasha all went to the Casino on the Mor­ley Re­serve called Stoney Nakoda. It is a beau­ti­ful com­plex with very good food, lovely large ho­tel rooms and pleas­ing staff. It was a fun week­end even though the ma­chines didn’t like me very much. That wasn’t re­ally im­por­tant to me as I went to have a good time and that’s what hap­pened. The most snow was from here to ba­si­cally Beisker. The moun­tains were in all their majesty on Sun­day morn­ing with bril­liant sun­shine. It’s too bad the Hol­ly­wood folks can’t un­der­stand that we can’t move those nasty moun­tains that bring us chi­nooks.

Mark your cal­en­dars for Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 26 for cards, board games and vis­it­ing at the Cen­tre start­ing at 7:00 p.m. If you like to munch take along some snacks.

If you watched the Su­per Bowl on Sun­day I hope your team won but ev­ery­one can’t win as was ev­i­dent with the dis­ap­point­ment on the faces of the Pan­thers. I was cheer­ing the Bron­cos as I was hop­ing Pay­ton Man­ning would leave the game as a cham­pion again. Odds are that this was his last pro­fes­sional game.

Have a good Valen­tine’s Day and it is also Fam­ily Day Week­end. Maybe you will get to sleep in Mon­day morn­ing! Have a good one.
