Fi­nally had the op­por­tu­nity to take in a base­ball game at Mid­land re­cently, be­tween the Tim­bits yellow team and the Tim­bits blue team, and loved ev­ery minute. These kids are 4-5 years old, just start­ing out and use a tee ball to keep up the ten­sion, and are to­tally se­ri­ous, (for the most part). Brought back a lot of memories from when this writer coached ball for a cou­ple of years way back, and think the kids en­joyed the ice cream af­ter, more than the game it­self.

Can't say we ended up with any ma­jor lea­guers, but al­ways hoped the kids had fun.

The Man Van was in town last Fri­day and they did have a lot of guys tak­ing ad­van­tage of the free prostate exam test. Good to have the ser­vice avail­able and thanks to all in­volved.

Left­overs from July 1 fes­tiv­i­ties ...... nice to see Dorothy Ber­gos out en­joy­ing Mon­day's pa­rade, she al­ways played a big part in the ear­lier success of Canada Day fes­tiv­i­ties ...... pa­rade was ba­si­cally one hour in length, and the best part was ev­ery­one was hav­ing fun ...... what other 80+ year old would you ex­pect to dance along the pa­rade route to get our at­ten­tion, than for­mer Drumhel­lerite Mary Guter­son-Campbell? ...... some­day, some­one will have to ex­plain to this writer, where all those peo­ple come from, and there are lit­er­ally thou­sands ...... we hadn't driven the pa­rade route lately, but with the town's vol­un­teer com­mit­tee run­ning this one, have to say this was one of the best, no gaps, but driver's should leave a bit more space be­tween them and the float ahead ...... and the route used is great, and easy to ma­noeu­vre ...... we think that pa­rade vol­un­teer Terry Beaupre sampled ev­ery bit of candy de­liv­ered, and all samples passed his scru­tiny ..... also nice to see Andy Tri­adopou­los en­joy­ing Mon­day's pa­rade with his fam­ily.

And thanks to ev­ery­one who helped make the Canada Day week­end suc­cess­ful again. Lots of work and lots of peo­ple to keep smiles on faces.
