St John the Baptist Church

Robin's nest
The first picture is of the church Malcolm and I were married in 68 years ago in  August and
sadly it will be closing its doors in Saint John along with other very popular churches will be closed.

The second picture is of a Robins nest found in our neighbours baby barn yesterday, it was abandoned by the mother Robin and once the nest was disturbed she did not come back.  3 little blue
eggs were inside , we moved it to a nearby tree but don't think she will come back.

The Royal Wedding

It was 7:30 this morning when I turned the tv on waiting for the Royal wedding and seeing the
very special marriage of Harry and Meagan celebrated this day, like Matthew and Kate's wedding
I watched all day when home.

The little ones who came down the isle with the the bride did amazing, nice to see them taking part
especially Ben Malroney's children from Canada, and of course Charlotte and George.

I wonder how long it will be before the next Royal wedding.

Birthday girls do lunch

It was a great time at lunch with the girls, we went to Vito's, looking straight across from the
bank they all worked at with Malcolm.

We caught up on all the news of winter and of course our ailments

I was smart and got weighed at weight watchers before lunch.  Attended the meeting in the evening
and it was a good meeting.

Mapleton Park

Well it was  a beautiful day for a walk on the Mapleton trail so off Kate and I went, got my 10,000 steps in for the day and that was good a day before weigh in.

On the trail we meet up with Santa, better known as the homeless fellow who loves to dress as Santa at Christmas time and walk up and down Main street.  Last year he had his Santa suit stolen in a bathroom downtown but a good samaratan came along with a new suit for santa and made his day  and his Christmas.

Meeting Tessa

Well we finally got down to Saint John to meet Tessa, our new great niece.  She is sweet and I could not help seeing her father in her. 

It was a lovely day, first visit was to see my aunt Marg who was anxious for us to visit, I really got to
get her for a whole day and go out and about.  She was happy with all her treats we brought her.  She looks great, will be 91 this Sept. 

We always have a stop at the market and Titus Bakery, when we went to market the gal we got a
couple of drawings from had a gift for me, the two pictures above of Manchester Robinson Allison store and Royal Hotel, the place my parents worked at for 40 years and they met there.  What a treasure, I was so very pleased.  Made my day.

Supper with George and Mickie and Colin and Stephanie and little Tessa joined us.  It was a very nice get together.

Returning home


Well we returned home last Saturday night, had a good 2 months in Myrtle Beach, got lots of
good buys despite the money difference but all in all I cannot complain.

I have added a few pictures of the final night together with everyone for a supper at the trivia night,
we didn't stay for the trivia, had packing up to do but the team playing had won the week before which was definally a plus for us Canadians as a lot of the questions are based on US sports etc....

Of course we after we got home we were told the Wild cats had one more game to play and I went to
the game as Mac's golf pals are still enjoying the sun and they was rather exciting

And this is Bella, she is all packed for the road trip and has a wonderful trip home for
4 days on the road returning to Oromocto.  She is sure living the life, summer in the sun
and winter in well mostly sun for the best part of winter, at least no snow to dig through. lol
Finally at home and our family looked after things very well.  Susan, Kate , Garret and Malcolm
had the house spotless and clear of snow.
Here are the final pictures of our grandsons playing their last hockey game together, Trent
turns 18 next month and played his last game at this level and last game with his  brother
at least for a few years. 

Garret and Emma
Today was a great lunch with Kim King from Miramichi and so funny we went to
Homestead and who is there but Helen from Blackville, we all worked together at the Bank
and finally Kim is enjoying retirement to the fullest. 

And finally a glance at our dear ducks we fed while in Myrtle beach, they would come right to
the back door waiting till they seen Malcolm and the three of them would start quacking, they had quite the eye sight, if he moved in the kitchen they started swimming across the pond for the
back door, the owners of the condo were going in after us so hopefully they will continue to give them a treat.
Well that's that for the time being, still a bit of unpacking to do, dieting to get back on strict
again, a few restaurants to many I think.
