Okay, so I know it’s Mary Fran’s Musings, but hey, she gave me the password to this area so I guess I’m in, hey???ha,ha What is up with the weird weather this summer??  I don’t know if you are having it too, but the flooding, heavy rains, etc. are so uncommon for us here in Western Canada.   We have probably had more hail this year than in the past 5 years.  Thankfully we have been spared any damage or water...

Here’s a little tidbit that I thought you might enjoy…. The other day we had to replace a couple of blinds in our house as the closing mechanism in them was gone.   We grew tired of flattening out the slats with our hands so we picked ourselves up some new ones to replace the two that were shot.    All good so far. So the Little General got down to the task of replacing the blinds.   It went by quite quickly as all the...

Missing out.


Posted By on Nov 1, 2012

It’s shortly coming up to being seven years since my dad passed away.    I still think of him a great deal and feel the loss. In my eyes, my dad was a truly remarkable man.    He was a real gentleman.    I honestly can’t remember ever hearing my dad say something untoward or common.   He carried himself always with dignity and class and I truly loved that about him.   I think it may be something that I miss the most about...
