It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for the whole family. We are particularly mindful of everyone gathered today in Corner Brook for Nan's service. We wish that we could be there with all of you, to celebrate a wonderful life and beautiful person. We know that Nan would want us to be caring for her son, our father, today, and therefore we were grateful to be able to be with her when she needed us the most.

We know that she is in good care, and happy to be reunited with Pop today. She has left us with a lifetime of memories, lessons, and laughter. We will always remember her as a courageous, caring, concerned, and loving Grandmother. She affected our lives immensely, and will continue to do so for years to come.

We will miss her very much, and are sorry not to be with everyone today.

All our love and thoughts,
Vicki and Stephen
St. John's

Box of chocolates

Forrest was right. You don't know what you're gonna get in life, or what the next day will bring. In my life, I've been fortunate enough, most of the time, to get a nice nut-cluster, or one of those cherry things I like. But sometimes you get that piece of orange foam goo pieces of crap. Today's one of those days.

I've been teetering on the edge of flying home all this past week to see nan, who's has a stroke/pacemaker incident, and who did not have a good prognosis. And now Dad's had a bit of a cardiac incident this morning. Hmmmm. Not a pleasant holiday-weekend Saturday to be certain.

Still, I've managed to manufacture a couple of really ripping good mushroom omlettes. Can't start a holiday Saturday, no matter what the circumstances, without a good breakfast. Besides, cooking makes me feel better.

Departing Ottawa 6:35 Eastern arrival St. John's 11:55 PM Newfoundland time. Canjet flight 430.

Happy Birthday Mom/Congraduations

It's my mom's birthday today, my Sissy's convocation tomorrow. Grats to both, and to many happy years to come.

Yes, congraduations is not a word. I know.

Sith Review

Mr. Ebert has provided a very positive review of the latest in the Star Wars saga.

It's starting to sound good from all around.

Bunny suicides

Bunny suicides. Not normally a topic for fun. However, I must admit rolling on the floor laughing at a few of these.

**Warning. Do not attempt at home.**
