What a week­end for sports fans... nail-biter golf, great curl­ing and at times left you won­der­ing about the end re­sult but what a tremen­dous hon­our to the Gushue Team. The Flames start an­other round of play on Wed­nes­day against the Ducks so that should be good too. (Hardly know I’m a sports fan!)

Here’s an­other re­minder that the Orkney Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion An­nual meet­ing and put luck sup­per is April 19 at 6:00 p.m. Re­mem­ber it’s time for the an­nual dues to be paid too.

Sun­day, I watched sev­eral news­casts and ser­vices from Vimy and around Canada. What a trib­ute to the fallen with so many thou­sands at­tend­ing the ser­vices and to see so many young peo­ple in at­ten­dance with par­ents and grand­par­ents. I un­der­stood from one news­cast that there were some 30,000 peo­ple at Vimy on Sun­day.

If you haven’t started to get your in­come tax pa­pers to­gether, per­haps you should get started. The dead­line comes quicker than you think and it’s not nice hav­ing to pay a fine be­cause you are late fil­ing.

Read in the Cal­gary Sun about those three bear cubs locked in a road­side bath­room in the Park. What a weird thing to see when that man opened the door to use the fa­cil­i­ties. It’s odd that the mother can’t be found. Some­one must have put them there for “safe keep­ing” in the hopes that they’d be found still alive.

That’s it for this week. Have a good week. David Allen said, “You can do any­thing but not every­thing”.
