We were expecting my cousin Karen and her husband Tom (from Florida) the last week in July, but an unexpected change in their plans brought them to our neck of the woods ten days earlier.
We also had a visit from a girlfriend from Kamloops. Ginette is a working gal and had a few days off, so we welcomed her as well. We had a good visit.
Ginette has known Steve and Doreen for many years, and Karen and Tom met them the last time they visited us, so on Friday night of the weekend we invited them to join us.
We had a fun time, had a few beers (wine too), visited, ate and sang some songs. No campfire though... that fire ban doesn't put a damper on our sing-songs....
Steve and Tom took turns entertaining us, and we all belted out the songs they were playing.
After the weekend we took a little trip to Osoyoos. We picked cherries, had a late lunch and hung out for awhile. We enjoyed our time with Karen and Tom. We played a little 'sequence'; took a little tour of our back country up to the 'City of Paris', and to check out an old mine in the hills. It's always sad to see them go, but we had them here for almost a week and they had to push on.
Karen and Tom left on the 20th, my birthday. Michel took me out for dinner then Solange and Leo and Steve and Doreen came over in the evening. Once again we enjoyed a good time, lots of laughter, a little wine, and more song!
We do live the good life....Thanks for reading!
