In case no one has noticed - I hate tweeting.  Seems an intrustion into an otherwise normal life.  What could possibly be that important - unless you are having a last minute party but then usually a few hours notice is sufficient.  So I have terminated my Twitter Account.  Besides it was getting hacked and people were tweeting inappropriate things and making it look like me.  So it is gone.  ...

Note to self:  always remember to fasten fly prior to engaging sweet old lady in conversation while she is seated on a park bench and I am standing facing her…

Wow!  It has been a long, long time since I last sent an update to ya’ll about our life over here in Canada.  I believe it was in February when I last emailed, for which I am sorry.

Life over here continues as normal:  Digger remains ...
