Wow expat girl you sure have moved around. Is it related to your DH's job or do you like exploring?

I have also enjoyed reading all the other little snippets and having movies bought back to mind - I'd forgotten all about "batteries not included!" - I really loved that, Short Circut is another one that hit my sense of humour.

Babe - I really feel for you, it bought back memories of my friend at school who was killed when terrorists attacked his family farm. So hard for those left behind.

We used to take our family vacations, when I was growing, up by Winnipeg. We also have been to Thunder Bay and would go house boating on, I forget the name of the lake but the town we left from is Warroad I believe. And then we would stop for customs before crossing into the Canadian side and sometimes go as far up as Kenora.
Mostly it was just a week on the lake fishing and overnighting moored to whatever island we had picked out and liked!
