How do you get circular reflections from square windows, I wonder…. and the vertical bands???

This a just a quickie check-in to say ‘hello world’ and that I’m still around. There is more stuff going on but not the greatest of news so I’ll hang on til I something happier to share about… like the wedding and the trip there.


A Bit Of Good News

August 17, 2010

Finally, about a week ago I had a chance to get online to book my flight for my son’s wedding in Calgary on the Labour Day weekend. An event to look forward to at last. I’m going solo as Lynda isn’t up to being away from home for any length of time as yet. Otherwise it’ll be a little family reunion – the kids mom Vicki, our daughter Sarah from Vancouver along with Zeph, and the wedding couple Russ and Melissa, their daughter Madison, plus me!!

I’ve been offered a bed at either Russ’s or Vicki’s places so we’ll play it by ear, day-to-day. The flight out is early Thursday and I return late Sunday.

I had sent this photo to one of my old classmates – Virginia (standing, third from right) – a few years ago and since lost it. She was kind enough to hunt it down and return the favour. Bonus points if you can pick me out of the group.
