Just an Update
I feel I must apologize for not posting on my blog for a while. I have been resistant for some reason even though I always have things buzzing around in my head I might like to write about.
I was away in Mississauga for a week celebrating a birthday with a friend and her family. Since I have gotten back I find myself unmotivated. It may be the nice weather, which is a distraction or more likely it is dealing with the stressful situation between my friend and tenant, June, which will be resolved today when I give her an eviction notice. I expect that will increase the stress until she finally moves out. At least, I will see an end to a situation which is not good for either of us. Sadly, I suspect it will end our friendship of 20 years.
Those who have been interested in my brother and sister in law's trek of the Appalachian Trail might like to know that they are now in the southwest corner of North Carolina , enjoying themselves. They have had some challenging weather and at one point in the Smokey Mountains the trail had about a foot of snow on it. Hard to imagine with our mild winter here and currently summer like temperatures, two months early.
There is a tradition among those on the trail to eventually give each other a Trail name. Richard and Carol are now known as "The Canadian Geese" (Goose and Gander) Apparently, they earned this because they are Canadians treking north and the Spring and Canadian Geese mate for life. How nice is that!
Those who might like to read some of their journal you can find it here. http://www.trailjournals.com/richardandcarol/ You can read it from the beginning or click to the "last" entry and go back a few entries and read about their recent days. They can only post when they are near a town and can access a computer in a library.
I am trying write something more extensive but I decided to post these brief remarks to show that I am still here, and I will try to get a further blog entries done.
