I hope this nice weather stays for awhile but we also need some rain. That seems to be in the fore­cast for Thurs­day but the long week­end is good for camp­ing.

I’m en­joy­ing the hockey games with the Jets and Knights. Both teams are tough and it should be a great series. Some of the so-called ex­perts of the game must be sur­prised that their ‘un­der­dog teams’ are now in the semi-fi­nals.

I was read­ing in the Sun last week that the Amer­i­cans are talk­ing through their hats again about our ‘nasty tarsands’. It would be nice if Al Gore and oth­ers minded their own busi­ness and learned to learn be­fore they speak.

Last Tues­day I had daugh­ter Lau­rie and Ken from La­mont here for a short visit. Had them do some odd jobs for me too as I’m get­ting too old for some of that win­dow wash­ing busi­ness. On the long week­end I’m ex­pect­ing Chad, Cather­ine and Cassie from Wey­burn here so a busy time com­ing up.

Here’s a lit­tle bit of hu­mour for the week: This is taken from a history and English teacher’s an­swers col­lected from dif­fer­ent schools....

The in­hab­i­tants of Egypt were called mum­mies and they trav­elled a lot by Camelot. Nero was a cruel tyrant who tor­tured his sub­jects by play­ing the fid­dle to them.

Have a good week and don’t for­get the sun lo­tion.
