Hey there... I am back on the job! Happy sum­mer to all and, time to get the writ­ing juices flow­ing again, been awhile! Our fam­ily just re­turned home to Mor­rin from a 5 week mo­tor home­road trip-of-a-life­time... all the way to Wash­ing­ton, D.C. and back, what an ad­ven­ture! We have never been gone on va­ca­tion that long ever! We stayed at some re­ally beau­ti­ful KOA camp­grounds through­out the states... Billings, Mon­tana on the Yel­low­stone River, and Union­town, Penn­syl­va­nia on the Youghiogheny River (pro­nounced yuck­a­haynee) were our two fa­vorites! Met some nice peo­ple, had great vis­its with old friends in Mary­land and St. Louis, bought some books at a 5-storey Barnes & Noble in Bal­ti­more, ate some yummy food, watched a bunch of good movies, saw some pretty coun­try and im­pres­sive thun­der­storms and a lot of other re­ally neat stuff all along the way... a high­light was sit­ting on the steps of Capi­tol Hill in D.C. at dusk one evening, mar­veling at the amaz­ing ar­chi­tec­ture of the leg­is­la­ture build­ings and grounds as the glo­ri­ous sun set, cast­ing a soft, am­ber hue... what a sight to be­hold! As we turned from the Na­tion’s Capi­tol Dis­trict of Columbia to make our trek home, we hit a few dis­heart­en­ing bumps... had to re­place the rooftop A/C in Terre Haute, In­di­ana and some tires in Fort Collins, Colorado and re­ceived fan­tas­tic ser­vice both times to get us back on the road. All in all, God is good and so faith­ful to bring us through such an amaz­ing trip! His mer­cies are new ev­ery morn­ing. He re­minded us to keep hav­ing fun and be­ing grate­ful that the im­por­tant things in life are not things. It is hav­ing health and strength and get­ting to spend all day, ev­ery day to­gether for so many days, know­ing we are blessed, loved, for­given, watched over, cared and pro­vided for, and, guided by the Mas­ter.

Any­way, so fun to go away and al­ways so, so nice to come home, rested, sunned-up, and safe and sound with a heart full of won­der­ful un­for­get­table fam­ily sum­mer mem­o­ries. We truly en­joyed trav­el­ling through the USA again this sum­mer, but it sure felt good to cross the bor­der at Sweet Grass, Al­berta back into Canada on Sun­day af­ter­noon! And of all the pretty places we saw on our jour­ney, driv­ing back down the hill into the Drumheller Val­ley and see­ing the beauty of the bad­lands was a sight for sore eyes... re­ally nice to be home!

And, I am a lit­tle bit out of the loop as far as lo­cal news goes... I did have one email from Di­ana Wolf with a tid­bit of info. The Mor­rin and Dis­trict His­tory Book Com­mit­tee wished to an­nounce the win­ners of the “totes of cheer” raf­fle. The draw was made back on June 30 with Wanda Hamp­ton, Shirley Bre­mer and county staff present and so con­grats go out to Doug Stanger from Drumheller and Steve and Karla Neilsen from Delia as they were the lucky ones cho­sen. And the com­mit­tee re­ports they may carry on with their work with the money made from the ticket sales and thanks to all who con­trib­uted.

So, hope­fully in the next few days I can pick up some more news for next week... for now it is good to be home... time now to, un­pack, clean up, wash clothes, pull weeds, and get things back in or­der... cheers!
