November 26. 2017: A Happy Day For Sure.

Yesterday, was a lovely day as two important events occurred. First of all, my younger son Tim celebrated his birthday.

Preparing to Blow

Tim’s wife Andi, (who sadly took the pics and isn’t shown even though I took one of her) and her Mum Jo, prepared a lovely meal for us to eat. Oliver and Charlotte made sure their Dad had a good time by giving him his gifts. Tim told us he’d had a great day which made us all feel good.

Secondly, earlier in the day Oliver had tested for his Blue Belt in Taekondo and was successful in achieving it.

Above you can see him with his fabulous teacher Richard Dobbs. Grand Master Kim had good words to say about all the participants. I’ve included some short video clips which will show you some of the aspects of the Blue Belt testing.

 

We missed Ben and Josée as they were on a trip. We also missed Cynthia for sure, but loved having her there in our hearts and in spirit.

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.
