Deer, Elk and Bear!!! On my plate, and what a fine meal that was. Last evening the Lake Windermere district Rod and Gun Club held their annual Wild Game Night (The Red Neck Ball) Their motto: "Do not destroy what you have not the power to replace" The hunting season was not the best and many of thehunters need the meat for their own families. We were all thankful for those who were able to donate some of their meat to make this annual (93 years) a truly wild game dinner.

This week has been busy with our daughter, Tammy visiting us. She has never been west and was humbled with the vastness and beauty the mountains have to offer. We both skied and toured the mountain during the week. We did manage to snow shoe one afternoon and it was wonderful for Bob to be able to experience the afternoon with us. Julie, her best friend since grade 4 drove from Calgary to visit. It was great to see her again. Tammy and Julie (Juice) had lots of catching up to do, and some great skiing, since we had a dump of fresh snow. Good timing! They both left with big smiles and very tired.
As for Bob.... Yes, Bob has clearance to begin more strenuous activity as he is recovering very quickly since he had the fluid drained from his right lung. Bob is expected to ski this Thursday after a quick x-ray and exam early that morning. Yes, the medical system here work according to snow conditions. You can't spoil a good ski day by seeing patients throughout the workday when you can see them before the hill opens. We love Valley Time!!!! Thursday 1 March will be a good day. We will celebrate as ski bums should: At the Mile One Hut in front of the fire with a toast of Hot Chocolate and Amaretto under the mid afternoon sun......
