Happy Hour with good friends - the best neighbours - Doug and Diane. This couple took care of our place for us last year when we went south.

We have a job!!

Welcome to Jewel Lake Provincial Park -

We are the park managers for two Provincial Parks in our area - Jewel Lake Prov. Park and Boundary Prov. Park. We have been doing this since mid-May--the cleaning and collecting. Right now we're only working 2-4 hours a day - tho the hours will pick up in the summer (July and August). It's a nice job - we get to spend our time outdoors and we've met a lot of real nice people.

I had a real bad time when we returned from our winter holiday this year. I had a number of gall bladder attacks in May and when I finally went to see the doctor on May 26th, after visiting emergency a couple of days prior, she sent me on to Trail for surgery the next day. They took out the ugly old gall bladder on May 27th at 9:30 p.m.

Here's a picture of the old sickie in the hospital, the next morning after surgery. I was discharged at 2:00 that day.
