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.
