Now that the Brier is over, I can get back to do­ing some use­ful things but, there were some great games and some not so great but in the end, it was great to see Koe and Co. bring the Brier back to Al­berta. That could have been any­one’s game.

Last week I was in Strath­more and Cal­gary for a fam­ily visit and din­ner which was very nice. This is Dick’s sis­ter and brothers and spouses. We try to do this about once ev­ery few months so we can get caught up on what evry­one is do­ing.

This past week­end Les and Kathy Bell had Brad and Gail Hvene­gaard from Cal­gary visit them and it was a chance for Brad to see Don­ald’s work (re: air­planes) as he is very in­ter­ested in fly­ing.

No­ticed over the week­end that ice on the river is start­ing to break up and move but it wasn’t the main break-up.

Get well wishes to Arthur Stanger who is in Cal­gary at his sis­ter Ruth’s while he re­cov­ers from surgery. Hope you’re home soon Art.

Were you late for church on Sun­day?? I ex­pect some folks were as they for­got to change their clock. Does the time change bother you with re­gard to sleep? It ap­par­ently does for some folk but that is per­haps an ex­cuse for some other rea­son.

The com­mu­nity ex­tends sym­pa­thy to Harold and Jan King and fam­ily on the pass­ing of Eve­lyn, his mother, on March 13. Her fu­neral ser­vice will be held this Fri­day, March 18 at Knox United Church, Drumheller at 2:00 p.m.

Easter is com­ing upon us very shortly so make sure you have all the good­ies ready and try not to run over the Easter Bunny.

From “Golf For­ever, Work When­ever”: Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy be­cause it can­not, crit­i­cize or laugh.

That’s it for this week. Have a good one and en­joy the lovely weather.

Oops! Af­ter Mon­day’s bliz­zard I guessed wrong!
