Happy Canada Day, was a pretty good one too

Where are we today ?
        This morning was kinda nice, not raining. A quit trip to Buckhorn pick up a few things and back here, to hang out with Suzie.
love this .25 cent piece with the Canadian flag on it
        About 11 am our friend Larry stopped by to say HI.  Have not seen him since this time last summer. Missed him and his wife in California last winter because of our early departure. So Nice to see him again and catch up.
       After a bite for lunch we headed into the Buckhorn Community Centre to the Canada Day Celebrations, check things out. Nothing big or fancy, just a very nice small town community event, just the way we like it.

       Then we wandered over to the Petty zoo , just for the kid in me. Got to pet a  few animals.

       Then on the way out noticed the Community Centre was completely powered by solar, love it.
kids blowing bubbles in the park
chainsaw carvings pretty good too
         Back home, putter around for a bit, then "Happy hour" at Pat and Norms. So we grabbed our chairs and beverage to chat with some old and new old friends for an hour or so, until the skies started to sprinkle a bit about5 o"clock 
good friends and lively conversation
        Need something for your Pet for Happy Hour? Bow about Brew Buddies?
we sang Happy Birthday to Gary,
71 years old today
        Now back home for supper. A big treat for us, Baked potatoes, prime rib steak (on sale), grilled mushrooms and onions and of course a salad.
perfect steak on our Q ,
nobody can cook it better than we do
sure was tasty
         After supper a few friends stopped by to chat for a bit, while I worked on the blog. Musta did something wrong (distractions ya know) cause it disappeared, gone into cyberspace somewhere!. First time ever in almost 10 years, so had to start all over again. Later that I like but all done.
          Thanks again for stopping by and if you are Canadian hope you enjoyed your Canada Day. If not Canadian hope your enjoy Wednesday was pretty wonderful here.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Spring and Summer.


  1. Just enjoying the day doing not too much.
    That sounds like being Retired.
    I forgot we are.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yes we can enjoy everyday even more, love this retirement gig.

  2. Celebrations and holidays are usually fun days and especially more so if you aren't retired. If you are, all the worker bees are out filling up the campsites for the retired folks.

    1. Its a good thing that some people still work, the campsites would be too full otherwise.
      Was a fun day.

  3. Great outing for your special day..the wood carving looked very interesting - ending the day with happy hour catch ups seems like just the ticket...

    1. Amazing how fast they can carve with a chainsaw.
      The Happy hour is a fun way to socialize and catch up, in the late afternoon

  4. I remember playing on hockey sets like that in the olden days. Neat coin, is that new or of another year?

    1. I had one of those hockey games way back when as well.
      That is a new 2015 coin.
      You can get them here onlt .25 cents each.

  5. Looks like you had a wonderful day, even if the blog disappeared on you! :c)

  6. Sounds like a great day! That steak was making my mouth water especially when you say they were on sale! ;-)

    1. It was a wonderful day, And "On Sale" is always good! Steak was amazing!

  7. Gotta love those small town celebrations. It was fun to see the picture of the children blowing all the bubbles. Steak is always amazing.

    1. The children were having a ball, and the steal? Melt in your mouth!

  8. Looks like y'all had a wonderful day of celebrating. I really enjoyed seeing the carving photos. The food looks super and the clown is a hoot. I love seeing all the red and white.

    1. Thanks for stoping in was a wonderful day we had.
      The clowns were a hoot.

  9. Looks like everybody had a lot of fun.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
