What a lovely long week­end weather wise and for trav­el­ling and camp­ing. I ex­pect the nights might have been a lit­tle chilly in a tent, but smart campers al­ways have ex­tra bed­ding along and per­haps longjohns too.

I had a house full of com­pany over the week­end begin­ning on Thurs­day when Matthew ar­rived from Wey­burn and that evening Amanda brought Jay­den down from Vet­eran. Fri­day Chad and Cassie ar­rived from Wey­burn and Melissa brought Do­minic from Red Deer. Satur­day Bray­don, Meaghan Jack and Cooper came from Air­drie for the day and had sup­per with the boys stay­ing overnight so they could visit and play with the cousins. Sun­day, Rick came for a short visit and Bray­don and Amanda came in the af­ter­noon to pick up her boys and take Do­minic back to Red Deer. Amanda also came on Sun­day to pick up Jay­den and it was sort of like a come and go time, which I had trou­ble re­mem­ber­ing who was com­ing and who was leav­ing. Matthew, Chad and I had a lot of very late nights and early morn­ings play­ing cards, talk­ing and laugh­ing. On the Satur­day, Cassie’s grand­par­ents from Cam­rose were here to take her hik­ing and sight-see­ing. They were vis­it­ing Ar­lene’s mother Mary for the week­end so it was ac­tiv­ity ev­ery­day. What bet­ter way to spend so much time with fam­ily?

I ex­pect most of the farm­ers in Orkney were busy in the fields and weren’t en­ter­tain­ing very much. Hope the weather holds for them but some ar­eas had heavy rain last week that was scat­tered. Orkney was by-passed and had very lit­tle.

There were lots of tourists in town and sur­round­ing ar­eas with the camp­grounds be­ing filled which is nice that all those folks con­trib­uted to our eco­nomic well­be­ing!

Have a good week and some words of wis­dom from Colin Pow­ell: Ex­perts of­ten pos­sess more data than judg­ment.
