Orkney Or­a­cle

I hope all you fa­thers had a great day with lots of ex­tra spe­cial at­ten­tion and do­ing what you wanted to do. I know of one fam­ily that took their 75 year old dad, his son and daugh­ter, and son-in­law golf­ing for a fun time and dad hadn’t golfed for about 20 years. That’s fam­ily. Satur­day I at­tended the Orkney Sports Day and watched an af­ter­noon ball game be­tween Orkney and Drumheller. That game of slow-pitch was very dif­fer­ent to the usual as they played by “Orkney Rules”. Lots of fun. As usual the sup­per was great with some 75 burg­ers and about 50 hot dogs be­ing eaten as well as a huge va­ri­ety of sal­ads and pies of all kinds. Noth­ing like a com­mu­nity sup­per for fab­u­lous food.

Greg Cole’s auc­tion sale last Thurs­day had a good turn out and most things sold quite well I’m told but like all sales it de­pends on the weather and the crowd and the auc­tion­eer.

My thanks again to Blaine, Ge­orge and Brad for fix­ing my car so I could come home. When I got to the top of Orkney Hill the tem­per­a­ture light came on. Not good news so I daw­dled along from there to the Cen­tre and the boys found I had no anti-freeze in the ra­di­a­tor. Don’t know how it hap­pened as there was no in­di­ca­tion of leak­age on the garage floor. There was a hole in the ra­di­a­tor but some magic bot­tle of some­thing plugged the hole and the anti-freeze held. I know some peo­ple used to al­ways carry a can or bag of black pep­per to do the same job. I think some folks still do. Have a good one and re­mem­ber that true friend­ship is a price­less gift the can’t be bought or sold.
