There isn’t too much news this week but, the Stampede is over in Calgary and it was good as usual. Lots of exciting rides and times posted. Big Valley’s young Mr. Thurston did it again and won his third consecutive championship which is something to be very proud of.
The fires in B.C. are still making headlines and Kamloops is now bursting at the seams with the influx of evacuees. They must need all sorts of relief supplies and I’m still wondering if the Town of Drumheller is thinking of helping out in any way.
The Passion Play is on now so hope the weather cooperates. Driving past on Sunday afternoon, the parking lot was full to almost overflow. Nice to see that it is still so popular for so many people from all over the country and at times from overseas as well.
This past weekend, I had my granddaughter Roberta Keichinger from Lethbridge here on her way to visit friends and family in and near St. Paul. Her holiday time is coming to an end except for long weekends it seems.
I’m seeing several cars from Ontario, Quebec and B.C. as well as several from the States. The Americans are enjoying our low dollar and are coming here for the numerous interesting places in our country and some are even learning something about our country and learning that we have very good restaurants and hotels available. It might even be an education for some of them.
I hope that the smoke arriving in the valley isn’t causing too much trouble for folks with health problems.
That’s it or this week. Keep the folks in B.C. in your prayers.
