  8. Hi Jim,

    A beautiful and refreshing post and series of photos. Much needed, as here in Montreal we are due to get a dangerously humid heat wave, beginning tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to hit 40 celsius. I have to be very careful in this weather. Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. Hey Jim!
    What a busy and rich week you've had. I've been catching up on all your posts.
    Wow! Words! Images! Feelings! Scottish pipers! Sophie! It doesn't get any better than this!
    I've been very busy Inside-My-Head!!! I've been discovering some amazing things! Things that have been staring me in the face for decades, but eye just didn't git them! LOL.
    I hope that you are having a great weekend with maybe some sunshine! Just be glad you're not in Calgary. My family is all okay. With all those geologists and engineers, guaranteed no one bought a house by the Bow River; they're all up on the high terraces above the river. It's all very sad, but I know Calgarians, and they will be back bigger and badder than ever!

    1. Well, she hasn't gone AWOL!! Hi Louise!! Good to see you!
      Yes we have been a tad busy of late, as I guess you have been!
      I have family in Calgary as well...they are not engineers/geologists but are safe and so good to hear your family is too!
      What with the fires in your state and the floods here...never know where and when these things will pop up!
      Have a great weekend and good to see you.

    Sorry, gotta go!
