I still think it is amazing that they give homework in the first grade! I don't think I got any until grade 4 or 5! And it was mostly reading and practicing math and spelling.

Later they became the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and their headquarters (and training center) are in Regina, right behind the school both my father and I graduated from.

Just a little history!

Excellent, PF!

And, LP, so glad they caught the guy! Amazing. RCMP rocks!

I just wish they would catch the guy who murdered the hockey Mom outside our rec centre 2 weeks ago. Our community (Newton in Surrey) has been rocked by the amount of crime lately and this senseless act (for a pack of smokes and $32 dollars in her purse) needs to be solved.

Wow, no one's been doing anything?

I am about to start the arduous task of filling out our passport forms so that we will be ready for Alaska in September, but also, we need them to just cross the border and have procrastinated far too long.

TB's parents are snowbirds and have wanted us to come to their place near Palm Springs for years. They've even said they would pay for the passports if that's what was stopping us. It isn't the money, just the forms themselves!

At Shrek's whim today, it's his 68th birthday...he's not doing anything but playing on guitars and watching TV. I'm hanging out.

I've been working on my pistol all afternoon. I've been doing something
Actually, 95% of "working" on it consists of looking into the aquarium to see how it's coming along
And I don't have my passport either, but then I never go anywhere, so why bother?
