Trevor Linden photo
This photo was taken in Honolulu by T's brother-in-law Tom ( in Hawaiian shirt ). A few family members stayed in Honolulu for a few days before flying to Kaua'i for the wedding. At some point they met Linden and Roberto Luongo. I think Tom said it was at Honolulu airport. It's hard to tell from the photo but it's either the airport or Ala Moana Centre mall!
Trevor Linden is a class guy all the way and he graciously allowed the photo. Perhaps because our nephew Ryan was wearing his Cancuks t-shirt? The little girl is Ryan's son Jayden ( great-neice of T and myself ).
Happy Birthday Lisa!
Many best wishes Dahling!

Cross stitch pic this time.
I was working on Angel of the Sea for a while before we went away. Just after I got back I finished up a few more minutes of work to get her to the 200 hour mark.
200 hours is kind of a rough estimate though since I don't use a stopwatch to time myself. It works good enough for me though.
The design is almost to the bottom in the very centre. I was mainly working on that area of waves and the bottom of her dress. When I pick her up again I have to finish off some white on the bird ( left side of dress ) and the work on the surrounding waves. I figure I have another 50 hours or so of work. Then I have tuck in somewhere the names and birthdates of my neice and nephew.

An anniversary and a wedding

Just in front of the Hanalei Colony Resort is this beach. Across the small bay you can see a point of land to the right. Past that point until the next point of land in the distance is Hanalei Bay. On the point of land in the distance are ( among other hotels/condos ) are the Princeville Resort and the Hanalei Bay Resort.
This photo sort of shows the living room of our condo unit. Not all of the units have the same furniture, but all are tropical in design. All are 2 bedroom unit and have virtually the same layout. The units are owned and the resort works sort of like a management company in that they rent out the units to guests. If you click on the resort link in my post of the 17th it explains about the accomodations.
My Weezie was happy with her blue floatie mattress for the pool.

Another layout photo
I made this double-page spread of some painting, gardening and building projects that we did in the months after we bought our house. The gardening and tools stickers are Creative Memories. I bought the paint brush and can die-cuts ( left side ) from a scrapbook store in Abbotsford across from SevenOaks mall. I forget the name of the store. The bolt, screw, etc. letters are from Michael's but I can't remember the brand name of them.

A child-hood friend is gone.
While we were in elementary school, Brenda lived in the house behind ours. I used to climb the fence to go play at her house. We had many sleep-overs. Our dads would yack over the fence. Her older sister was my baby-sitter for a while. I have fond memories of endless board games at her kitchen table.
We were friends in Junior High too, but her family moved a few blocks away when we were in Grade 9. Brenda didn't actually graduate with our class in Grade 12. Her family moved to Nanaimo part-way through the year. Suzy wanted to get in touch with her to invite her to the reunion anyway.
My mom ran into her mom a few times several years ago. Mom and Dad lived in a townhouse complex in Richmond from 1998 to 2003. During that time Mr. and Mrs. B. lived in the same neighbourhood and would see each other from time to time. Mrs. B. told my mom that Brenda had moved to Alberta. That was the last I heard of her. She was living in Canmore at the time of her death.
There is a service this Sat. in Abbotsford. T and I would like to go, but this is the weekend we have to get organized to leave for Hawaii on Monday morning. The service is at 3pm, so if we get enough done earlier then we may be able to go. If not I will email our condolences to the address in the obit. I feel bad about that though. T only met Brenda in Junior High but I was friends with her for 10 years. We did see her shortly after we got married in 95. Brenda still lived in Nanaimo, but was in Richmond visiting her sister so she came over for drinks. We had a great laugh talking over old times.
