A little rain can’t stop us from enjoying some fine BBQ’d kabobs. It’s starting to feel a little like BC here with the constant drizzle/rain we’ve been getting. I think we’re happy to put up with it though because the alternative is dry, dusty Saskatchewan. It should make for a much greener summer!
My sister Jamie came home from Mazatlan yesterday after being gone since January. We only got to spend a bit of time with her over supper but it was good to have our fam all together again. In a couple of weeks her Mexican b/f comes and we get to run him through the gauntlet to see if he checks out okay.
Since my mum and sister picked Jamie up in Calgary, they decided to bring along a little extra suprise for supper in the form of 2 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. There wasn’t exactly 2 dozen by the time they got home, but it was close enough that Sue and I got to experience the phenomenom that is Krispy Kreme. My verdict: very low-fat and very Atkins friendly.
For those who were there, we put up our photos from Marie and Jer’s wedding over at Sue’s family site. Go see if you made it into any of our pics.
Lots happened this past weekend. We celebrated our 5 year anniversary, Sue got me a BBQ, I got her an iBook (it’s a win, win situation really) and we took off to Edmonton Saturday morning and came back Sunday afternoon. 1000k in two days. We realized that driving is the perfect time to watch those DVD extras you never have time to actually sit down and watch. So the drive home went much quicker as we watched 3 hours of LoTR: Two Towers extras. Sue held her laptop and we plugged it into the car stereo.
We watched the finale to Survivor: All Stars and weren’t really surprised by the outcome. It was going to be either Rob or Amber. The marriage proposal wasn’t totally shocking either – and allowing us, the viewer, to vote on which over-exposed, celebrity hungry survivor gets a million dollars isn’t worthy of all the hype they had – and I think Jeff knew it. Head to cbs.com and vote for Rupert. If you want to see something creepy, watch the video plea by Susan where she wishes death on a desert island where all you’re left with is your teeth if you don’t vote for her.
Yech. That’s 30 seconds of my life I can’t get back.
It was Lindsay’s birthday last week so we went to their place on Saturday and made him BBQ our bison for us in honor of his birthday.
This picture is up for no reason than to see if Darren is still reading my blog even though he claims to be over his blog reading addiction.
I got an email from my dad today who’s suffering down in Mazatlan right now. Suffering from golf addiction. He shot a 1 under par for the first time on the course by their condo last week, and the other day had another once-in-a-lifetime golf event happen.
His story begins below:
This is strictly a golf e-mail because I did something a little rare today. This occurred after I took Lynn to the airport in Luis’ truck and then returned back to the clubhouse to play a little more golf.
Today was one of those days when I accomplished something I will probably never do again down here in my lifetime — and for that matter I’m not sure too many people ever will in their lifetime. I did something which is very, very rare. Hole #9 is a very, very,difficult hole – a dog leg right and only 380 yards BUT the wind blows across right to left both off the tee and on your approaches, the right side of the fairway is totally lined with huge bunkers from 150 in, the green is totally surrounded by cavernous bunkers(on average at least 3 of 4 golfers in every group end up in the bunkers at the front of the green which are about 10-12 feet below the height of the green) and the green is very, very fast. Well I nailed my approach to within 18 inches and the clubhouse staff were there cheering me on when I got up there because they could go a month on this course without the 9th hole ever getting birdied. I birdied it for only my 3rd or 4th time in about 150 rounds down here. But it didn’t end there.
