Ok who let the mos­qui­tos out? Put them back! We saw the strangest thing on Sunday night on our way home. We were driv­ing on the high­way and to the north to­wards the Mor­rin cor­ner we could see a dark col­umn above the high way. It al­most looked like a fun­nel cloud but not quite right. As we drive fur­ther north we start to re­al­ize it this huge clus­ters of mos­qui­toes above the high­way and I mean huge, enough that it made a dark cloud all the way to the Mor­rin cor­ner. YUK! Wear your bug spray or stay in­doors dur­ing the early morn­ing and evening hours. I feel sorry for the an­i­mals that have to be out in those bugs.

I hope you en­joyed your long week­end even with the bugs.

This past Satur­day, July 30, Munson 300 Raf­fle Draw lucky win­ner was James Schow. That’s two times lucky for James. He won back in March too. He might have to buy his mom sup­per for buy­ing him a ticket. Con­grat­u­la­tions James.

We had the op­por­tu­nity to see the band Alabama in con­cert on July 30 in Medicine Hat. Now Alabama has been around a long time and we saw them about 32 years ago in Cal­gary. I have to say they’ve still got it. It was a great con­cert at a nice venue and they sounded just as good as they did 32 years ago.

Now we can look for­ward to see­ing Blue Rodeo in con­cert this week­end at the Drumheller Pas­sion Play site. I think it’s a great idea to be us­ing the site to bring in en­ter­tain­ment.

Have a good week and keep the mos­qui­tos at bay.
