October, 30 Update

Hi everyone,

I was working at a local ski hill at the end of last week. Big White! Of course it snowed when I was up there. My work van is old and of course the heater is breaken. Yes it was cold.

I played golf on Saturday with my dad. We have not played so much this year so it was funto play with him. I shot a 89! Not the best score.

I had to work on Sunday back at Big White for a few hours. For dinner we had BBQ burgers. Yummmmm!!! They tasted so good! Even in the winter we BBQ here!

Bye for now!

October 25 Update

Hello Everyone,

I had a long day most of it driving. Chrissy and I went to Bannf just for the day to check out what Hotel we are going to use for the Canada Camp. It was well worth the trip! 12 hours of driving, 2 hours or so in Bannf. It was a warm day today but I guess just 2 days ago there was arounf 4 cm on the ground in Banff. I have heard it is suppose to snow in a few days.

I will keep you all updated to how the camp is coming along!

More soon!

Best Regards

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a good week! Mine was busy with work! The picture I am attaching is from today. This house I did started and completed today. I am getting faster all the time at installing kitchens. It is fun to see the finish product at the end!

Kelowna is growing very fast. There is so much new home building going on.

The weather here is getting cooler all the time! It has snowed at many local ski areas.

I am looking forward to going to The Canadian Ski Coaches Federation update soon. I will send pictures of that for sure.

More soon!

Have a great week end !

Oct, 12 update


This past weekend was the Canadaian Thanks Giving celebration. My parents and brother with his family came to our house to have the Famous Turkey dinner. Everybody brought a dish to add to the meal. My brother Rick's wife Michelle's mom made 3 pies. Pumpkin, prune and lemon marange. Chrissy made lemon cheese cake! We all ate too much.

Other good news is my brother Rick and Michelle have a new baby boy. Michelle gave birth last thursday! I bought Rick some cigars. It is a custom to smoke a cigar when a baby boy is born. I am not sure why? Rick , my dad and myself went for a walk after dinner and smoked one each. I bought chocolate flavored ones, so they were sweet when we smoked them. After we all had that smokey taste in our mouths that lasted till the next day. Yuck!!!!!

It is raining here and is cool. No snow but cool!

I hope you are all doing well.

More later!
