Hello ev­ery­one and I hope you are en­joy­ing the nice weather which is sup­pose to last this week too. I think spring might be here as the go­pher who was in my yard last sum­mer and lived un­der my deck it seems for the win­ter has ap­peared Sun­day morn­ing. Mon­day morn­ing I also killed a fly on the kitchen win­dow. Speak­ing of weather I was talk­ing to Lau­rie in La­mont on Sun­day night and they had rain ear­lier in the day and had 2” of snow with high winds and a mini bliz­zard as we talked. Crys­tal tells me they have lots of Canada geese on the dugouts and sloughs on their land. Since March came in like a lamb I won­der if there will be a lion go­ing out.

I was sur­prised to read Sun­day’s pa­per to learn that for­mer premier Don Getty had passed away and his state fu­neral was last Satur­day. I thought I was up on the go­ings on around the coun­try but I cer­tainly missed that. He died Fe­bru­ary 26 of heart fail­ure.

Holly Bor­wick is back from Ecuador where she spent 3 months teach­ing English and brush­ing up on her Span­ish. She is home for a short time to catch up on news and then will be go­ing back to Ross­land, BC where she works.

Have a good week.
