Three hundred and thirty eight kilometers from our house is the small town of Keremeos and the home of Doug’s brother, Ron and his wife Karen…
We are spending the weekend in this tiny town on the Similkameen River..we have been here numerous times since they moved here in 1999..
some think that Remembrance Day is..
- a day off of work
- a day to sleep in
- a day to make ‘double time ‘ since it is deemed a statutory holiday..
For us it was a day thinking of all the veterans who served in all the wars to give us the freedom we have today…
So this was our way of saying “thank-you” for your military service.
..the balance of our day was filled with conversation, food and more food… …and now we are all relaxing watching TV.
We did have a small crisis though..no internet access…Karen made a call to her ‘computer go to guy’ in Saskatchewan (us in blogville have ‘Rick’ and she has ‘Brian’)
Crisis averted..now we are a lined up with our laptops!!..
Doug checked the Highway Cam website this evening and there has been a ‘dump of snow’..on Highway 3…(the way home.).good thing we are here till Sunday....stay tuned for more from Keremeos…
