Getting Out The Wrinkles



We have an unusually busy weekend ahead of us....starting this morning.


Sorry to say but we are going to a funeral this morning. My sister's partner's father drown last weekend.


On Sunday, we are off to an early morning christening in Halifax.


Ron's cousin, Nancy, is here from Calgary, Alberta with her baby daughter, Lucy, to be baptized in the 'family' church.


The dichotomy of these two events was not missed by us when preparing for them yesterday.


Both of these functions required that we 'dress the part'.


As most of you know, we live a pretty relaxed lifestyle and are off on 'hikes' almost daily.


So the proper attire was necessary which we (Ron) dug out of the closet last night.


That is, after we realized we needed a new iron and bought one in the afternoon.


So, we will be all set (at least 'clothes-wise') for an emotional roller-coaster ride.

  1. You got me with that title. I was hoping to look ten years younger by the end of this post.
    Sending hugs out to your Sister's Family.
    Take care.

  3. Both a happy and sad weekend. Condolences and congratulations are in store. We live a very relaxed life, too, so it's always a scramble when we have to get dressed up.

  4. Good Morning, Jim,

    Sorry to hear about the death in the family, my condolences to your sister and her partner at this sad time.

    Congratulations on the birth of Ron's cousin's baby girl.

    Often sad times are "balanced" by a time of joy. It just doesn't seem like it at the time.

    1. We never knew Michael's father but we wanted to be there for him and Mim. We met his family and some of mine were there too. It was a long service which these tend to be.
      Now on Sunday for some 'balance'!

    1. And condolences to you both as well! One look at your grandchild upon your return should bring things into perspective.
