Happy Canada Day (a day late)

Kathy and Barb chillin at the Greens
This past weekend we had a chance to visit our dear friends from CBC days, Jorin and Dorothy Green.  They are pretty much family!  Unfortunately, things went a little sideways while Kathy (their 5 year old, who has been diagnosed with leukemia) spiked a fever. In normal people, this isn't a serious thing. You go to bed, get some rest, and feel better tomorrow. But Kathy has no innate immune function, so even a cold could be fatal. She and her dad ran for Saskatoon's pediatric oncology department, and Rob and I took Michael and Dorothy home. We then drove the 9 hours back to Edmonton from Pambrun on the 1st of July. Please pray for this family. The whole story is at This site gets enough internet traffic to actually be rated!! Jorin very kindly offered to use the exposure to help advertise our condo for sale.
Ahhh.... yes. the condo. We are attempting to have it painted. This is NOT an easy thing while all your stuff is still in it. So all the paintings, curtains, etc have to come down, and we will be moving all the stuff from one side to the place and back again to accommodate the process.
Our Schro has successfully left the building, and the city. She is finding a new home in Calgary, if Scott can convince her to come out of hiding. I guess she's still in shock. I almost though I heard her meow this morning.
I guess this was our last Canada Day in Canada for a while. We did manage to have a pint of Molson Canadian in honour. It'll be funny to think that by next Canada Day, drinking the same thing will probably be an expensive import!
