READ ALL ABOUT IT
At the shop on the weekend and noticed a vehicle pull into the lot, the door came open but no one stepped out. We approached the driver who told us he had dropped his cell phone and wanted to retrieve it. Seems he was headed from Ontario out to Vancouver for a career change, and was going to school to become an arborist. He was very polite, kept using the word "Sir", as we gave him directions for attractions in the valley. He was in no hurry to get to the coast, and was eager to see the tourism spots along the route.
Talking to Barry Killaby the other day and he recalled when he went to school, they taught about parallelograms. He said, "I'm sure glad they taught me about parallelograms instead of how to do taxes. It sure came in handy this parallelogram season!"
We've always wondered why, when designing airports, the people in charge, insist on using tiles with grout for flooring knowing that millions of travellers will be dragging suitcases with rollers over them making for noisy "clack-clack" sounds.
Oops, sorry, guess that makes too much common sense.
Ran into Ray Shaw the other day, who, by way of introduction, is a son of longtime resident Ethel Shaw, but share a common bond as we were both Drumheller
Mail newspaper carriers many years ago. Ray had a long career in lumber sales in Western Canada, but we both recalled the most favourite customers we had were the ones who invited us in as little kids to warm up while on our route on those cold winter days. Happy retirement to Charlene Vescarelli who is retiring from ATB Financial after a 30 year career.
Now, she may not remember this writer taking her photo on her first day at work 30 years ago, but we dug it out of our archives and reprinted it here.
