Four feet and eight paws…

November 7- December 25, 2016

Is there any point in writing about what we have been up to?


May as well just look forward, no sense in looking  back now..I have forgotten most of it by now anyway…


The snow has arrived along with the ‘dreaded north winds’…we had a week of ‘arctic wind’.. a balmy –19 celsius with the windchill..a frozen water filter and a ‘dishwasher-cicle’ for a sewer hose..


Tucker, of course is enjoying the ‘winter weather’..



..and we have learned to warm up with the ‘old stand by’ Disaronno..


Christmas is upon us…


We had a few gifts to open..chamapagne and orange juice and our Christmas tradition breakfast of Eggs Benedict..


We facetimed with Carlie and Adam this morning..and then skyped with Brenda in Nelson and then my parents who are in Coquitlam..modern technolgy is a wonderful thing..makes being just a ‘party of four’ a wee bit easier…


This afternoon we are heading to the park clubhouse for a Christmas Dinner with the other ‘snowbirds’ who are calling Nkimp home for the winter season…

We hope all our readers/family and friends have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year…may it be filled with love and new memories..

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you all!!


..see you next year?


  1. You did a lovely recap. One that anyone can appreciate. If you are worried about not remembering what you have been up to start composing shorter daily blogs because your readers are waiting. Enough of the Chain Yanking.
    We're wishing you both a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Prosperous New Year.

    It's about time.

  2. It's always nice to hear what you've been up to. It was great Skyping with you guys the other day. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2017!

  3. Merry Christmas to you and Doug. A good and easy recap. Modern technology makes it easier to keep in touch his skyping or face time. Wishing you guys a Happy New Year as well.

  4. Merry Christmas to you all!!! Best of travels in the New Year..I am soooo jealous!

  5. May the water & sewer hoses not freeze again!! Uggg That must have been cold!!!
    Glad you had a Happy Christmas. May y'all have a Happy New Year!
    Kathy & Grant, & Molly is so jealous of Tucker playing in the snow!

  6. I've been keeping an eye on the Osoyoos weather and wondering how you guys are doing. In many ways I wish we were there, but on the other is a bit 'chilly'. Hope the water lines keep flowing!
    All the best in 2017!


Aww nuts…

How on earth does someone do a recap of the past seven months?… The last post that I did was on May forward to today, December 3...
