I hope all you moth­ers had a great week­end and were treated to lots of good­ies and fam­ily around to look af­ter all your de­sires.

Not much news this week as all the farm folk are busy in the fields and if the weather holds, most should be fin­ished seed­ing in a short time. Bet­ter off than folks in the north-east around Fort Saskatchewan coun­try as they are now in the fields com­bin­ing last year’s har­vest so they can get seed­ing done for this year. That has hap­pened here in ear­lier years but not too of­ten.

This past week­end, I was at the Stoney Nakoda Casino west of Cal­gary with Ross and Al­li­son Eremko and friends from Cal­gary. What a fun time although I didn’t come home a big win­ner. Those trips I go on are to have fun and if I win, good and if I don’t, that’s al­right too. There’s still lots of snow in the moun­tains but it was a beau­ti­ful sight with the sun shin­ing brightly Satur­day morn­ing and Sun­day morn­ing. A bit chilly as the wind usu­ally blows cool off the moun­tains.

Glad to see the Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors won their first game against the Pens and I hope it con­tin­ues through­out the se­ries. I’m cheer­ing for the Preda­tors against the Ducks and it was nice to see Kessler get a penalty in Sun­day night’s game. A lot of calls missed by the refs on both sides. Aren’t arm­chair refs the great­est??

That seems to be it for this week. I’m ex­pect­ing some of the grand­kids here over the long week­end which is al­ways fun. They do get to do some odd jobs for me to “earn their sup­per”. No one seems to mind which is nice. If you’re hav­ing com­pany for the long-week­end, do have fun and en­joy it to the fullest!
