I had to change my template a little and in the process I updated my profile and photo – I also did a little editing to my links list. To all those who I had listed, I still visit you… I just removed everyone except my sister for right now.

This photo was taken at the last show of the last evening on the cruise we just got home from. My hubby was supposed to sing in front of everyone this night but the pianist couldn’t learn the music in time.

My computer is acting up and I’m typing faster than it is appearing on the screen. The monitor is also dimming… This is so frustrating as I am a fast typer. I can’t blog much during the day now that I’m working and new this year… restrictions on internet usage. I can’t even view anything related to a forum-style website, like a blog… 🙁

I forgot to do a shout-out to my parents yesterday, it was their 35th wedding anniversary!!

They met and married in 8 weeks, can you believe it?!! My mom told me once that when she saw him across the parking lot (or restaurant, I can’t remember now – I just know that it was in Gastown, BC) that she had an out-of-body experience. Just like in those movies where everything fades around you and you’re drawn to each other in slow motion. She said it was instant and mutual. On this cruise we were on together, they were all over each other! At one point I told them to go get a room… They’ve always been publicly affectionate with each other, kissy-kissy and touchy-feely. They spend a lot of time together too, working side-by-side in their office 5 days a week, they are always together. It’s a great example – to still be gaa-gaa over each other 35 years – 4 children (and many other live-ins) – 12 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild later. Wouldn’t you say?

Happy belated Anniversary Ma & Pa!!!
