First Time…Without Cynthia

Last night, our immediate family went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary as we often did in years gone by. The big difference this year was that Cynthia wasn’t there with us to enjoy the evening. We had a good time, which is what she would have wanted, but oh how we missed her. I know there will be a lot of “firsts” this year, as 2017 rolls by. I also know Cynthia will always be with me/us in spirit, at each of these “firsts” as the year progresses. Love you always my darling.

January 03..A Special Day

Cynthia and I were married on January 03-1966.  It was one of the best days of my life, for I got to marry the love of my life. We had so much fun together, had two wonderful sons, gained two beautiful daughters and two super grandchildren. What could be better than that? So my friends, please join with our family and me tomorrow in raising a glass to my dearest love, Cynthia. It would have been 51 years of marriage tomorrow if she had made it…almost, but not quite. R.I.P. my love…I will love you always.At Home, With Ti-Poux

Carol Sing

A few evenings ago, we visited the home of friends here in Comox. They had asked us and other friends to come and join in a good, old-fashioned carol sing. Lynore led us in the carols, Margaret played her flute and Neil played the electric piano. We raised the roof and had a marvellous time together. The pics are a little fuzzy, but thank you Calvin for taking them anyway.

‘Bye for now and God bless.

If you haven’t been there it’s well worth a trip. Main point of the visit was to escape from a room using brainpower only. Here are some pics.

Boys were in one room girls in the other. The outcome was that the girls got out, and we were one clue away from getting out when they finished!

After Breakout, we went to Nori’s Restaurant, a fine Japanese eatery in Nanaimo. The good meal rounded off a super day.
