Asha delighted us yesterday with arias from Schumann, Mozart and Puccini. This was her "Third Annual Classical Operatic Revue" before heading to New York once again to attend a special Opera Camp. What an amazing gift she has. We have loved watching and listening to her transformation into a true "DIVA"!

Good idea??

It seemed like a good idea last night when Diana and I set it up...a wasp-free environment! That was before the storm hit this afternoon and sent the whole thing flying...table, umbrella and screen!! When the weather clears I will inspect the damage. Thank God the tubing around the perimeter of the netting was full of water. Otherwise it could have flown, unpiloted, to Kamloops!

After our hard labour of setting it up, we enjoyed an evening of jazz at the Ross Street Stage. Brian on drums and vocals, Bill Lockie on bass and Neil Fraser on guitar. It was a perfect evening, just the right temperature, no biting bugs and a small collection of appreciative audience members.

Thank God for good friends!

Thank God for good friends. This morning Karen helped me to move everything out of the three bedrooms in preparation for new flooring in the bedrooms and hallway upstairs. Just wish that she wasn't escaping to Costa Rica before all the junk has to be returned to those rooms!!
