The Blue­jays are back this spring, and we are not talk­ing about the base­ball kind. Pick up some un­salted peanuts and throw them in your feeder, they are very en­ter­tain­ing to watch.

A hus­band takes his wife to her high school re­union. Af­ter meet­ing sev­eral of her friends and for­mer school mates, they are sit­ting at a ta­ble where he is yawn­ing and overly bored. The band cranks up and peo­ple are be­gin­ning to dance.

There's a guy on the dance floor liv­ing it large, break danc­ing, moon walk­ing, back flips, buy­ing drinks for peo­ple, the works.

Wife turns to her hus­band and says, "See that guy? 25 years ago he pro­posed to me and I turned him down.

Hus­band says: "Looks like he's still celebrating!!!"

We cer­tainly en­joy watch­ing and hear­ing about all the trou­bles Pres­i­dent Trump is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in the first few months of tak­ing of­fice, and al­most daily there is some­thing new that has to be caus­ing him more and more anx­i­ety. And lately, his daugh­ter Ivanka has a new po­si­tion, plus an of­fice in the White House. Re­ally, the only pos­i­tive thing we have seen her do so far, is aer­at­ing the White House lawn with her high heel shoes.

Bumped into for­mer res­i­dent Wal­ter Lin­der ear­lier this week, just as fit as ever, and lives in B.C.

He is still in­ter­ested in catch­ing up with all his friends from when he was here, and en­joyed the times he had at the ski hill with Don Her­man, Ted Earl and many others.

As we cov­ered the ice break-up in the Red Deer River, one has to note not only how thick the ice was, but how quickly the wa­ter level rose and the break-up was quite a show. We saw ice 2 feet thick and the force of Mother Na­ture pushed huge pieces of ice up on the banks that are still there, now melt­ing with the warm weather. Al­ways an ex­cit­ing event.
