The Red Deer River Gar­den show wrapped up a cou­ple weeks ago with good re­sults. There were 6 ju­niors who put 43 en­tries into the show and 22 adults who put in 449 en­tries into the show which brought the en­tries up slightly from last year. It was re­ally re­ward­ing to see new peo­ple tak­ing an in­ter­est in the show with their en­tries so hope­fully that in­ter­est will con­tinue to grow (no pun in­tended). There were many prizes for the top en­tries in the show and the gar­den show would like to thank all the do­na­tors for their gen­eros­ity again this year. I will try to list the top awards be­cause there are so many. Most en­tries in the show was won by Lorne McArthur, the Ju­nior gar­den plot was won by Ha­ley Lit­tle, Ju­nior Ag­gre­gate first prize was won by Ash­ley McNaughton and sec­ond went to Haylee Lit­tle. Se­niors Ag­gre­gate first prize was won by Lorne McArthur and sec­ond was won by Ken Jensen. Gifts from the gar­den cat­e­gory was won by Jill Brodie and sec­ond by Mary Newton, this award was do­nated by Tri­dent. The Rum­sey Li­brary Cal­en­dar Photo con­test was a big hit with all the strollers who wan­dered through and picked their fa­vorites from the pho­tos en­tered this year. I would like to thank Meah and Ca­dynce Rich­mond, Linda Helmer and Jill Brodie for en­ter­ing their pho­tos. I would love to en­cour­age more peo­ple to en­ter pic­tures next year as I know we have many very tal­ented pho­tog­ra­phers in our com­mu­nity and with the tech­nol­ogy that the new phones of­fer, you sure don’t need to be tot­ing around a big old cam­era any­more to get that per­fect shot. I will be putting to­gether the 2017 cal­en­dar soon and hope to have it avail­able in Novem­ber for your Christ­mas pur­chases.

Here a lit­tle some­thing for your stu­dent in the house;

Teacher: “If I gave you 2 cats and an­other 2 cats and an­other 2, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven.” Teacher: “No, lis­ten care­fully... If I gave you two cats, and an­other two cats and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven.” Teacher: “Let me put it to you dif­fer­ently. If I gave you two ap­ples, and an­other two ap­ples and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Six.” Teacher: “Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and an­other two cats and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven!” Teacher: “Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!”

Johnny: “Be­cause I’ve al­ready got a cat!”
