It’s birth­day and an­niver­sary time again and also the mid­dle of sum­mer. Birth­day greet­ings to Ron Fer­gu­son July 8, Michael Bor­wick and De­laney McGhee July 12, Dorothy Ber­gos July 27. An­niver­sary greet­ings to Ron and Ch­eryl Fer­gu­son July 20, Michael and Judy Bor­wick July 23, and Brad and Jocelyn Soren­son July 30.

Some of the Orkney folk have been on a great hol­i­day to Mi­lan, Italy to at­tend the wed­ding of the daugh­ter of good friends. These trav­ellers are Cathy and Kirstie Bell. They left on June 15 and were away for 10 days and did the touristy stuff while in Italy. A nice break be­fore the sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties get go­ing.

These so-called show­ers we’ve been get­ting are rather strong, aren’t they? This past week­end there were sev­eral here in Drumheller and I am thank­ful the weather de­cied to be­have on Satur­day as I was at an out­door wed­ding in Wayne and the re­cep­tion and dance later at Rosed­dale. The storms late in the evenings or through the night were quite heavy but I slept through them.

I didn’t get to the July 1 ac­tiv­i­ties so can’t com­ment on any­thing that was go­ing on but am sure it was well at­tended.

If you’ve been watch­ing the Weather Net­work on TV we’ve been men­tioned sev­eral times in storm warn­ings for the area... gets scary af­ter a while. Some of the storms in the States are re­ally se­vere and I can’t imag­ine Las Ve­gas hav­ing 2 inches of hail and 1 inch of rain with high winds in one hour. That must have been a jolt to them. Lots of flood­ing too as they have no drainage sys­tem for the desert. We may com­plain about the weather (and we do) but we cer­tainly live in a great part of the world.

Don’t for­get Stam­pede starts this week in Calgary and the pa­rade is on Fri­day morn­ing if you want to watch it on TV.

Have a great week and as the weather guy says “when you hear the thun­der take cover”.
