(most recent month first)
We went to Val Caron again this year for Christmas. David was home from Vancouver
so we had the whole of our immediate family as well as all our Grandchildren
There was no snow for the first time in memory so the boys (with Mia in Goal) played ball hockey on the drive
June and Joe had a new picture taken. My how we have changed since 1964 when the other one was taken
As usual we had all the available family for Thanksgiving dinner. Just 17 this year.
We spent September in Italy and the Eastern Mediterranian
First to Rome
Then on a cruise that took us to Dabrovnik, Olympia, Ephesis, Corfu, Santorini, Malta,and Messina
Then a week in Sorrento so we could take day trips to Pompeii, Capri, and along the Amalfi coast.
Pompeii was very interesting. It is still being excavated from the volcanic ash that covered it several meters deep in 78a.d.
We went camping with Gail and Norm's families at Fairbanks park.
Since we sold the van we are back to tenting. Pictures of Mia feeding the chipmonks,and
Gail and Clem cooking breakfast for us.
At the end of the month Mia came to stay for a few days so we visited the Lion Safari.
Here is Mia riding on an elephant.
We attended the wedding of Joe's neice( see pictures on the Family page).
We visited with brother Bob at their trailer. Here is June with Bob and Marg having an ice cream at Young's Point beside the Trent Canal.
We attended the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Associated Investor's club of which Joe is an original member.

Easter , Mia's birthday and Joe's birthday within a few days of each other.
The weather was great so we could sit outside. On the left in June's nephew

Some of us went for a walk at Dundas point.
We took a short trip to British Columbia to visit and escape the bad weather
We stayed with Dave and Jodie. Here they are on the campus of Simon Fraser University.
