Queen Kate

Most of my family and friends know that I am a Red Hat Queen. My group is in Orillia but while I am traveling this year my Queen of Vice Grace & Vice Queen MaryLou are running the group.
Where ever you go there is always a Red Hat group and they welcome Visitors with open arms. If you are unfamilar with Red Hats well they are groups of women over the age of 50. They meet monthly or more times and enjoy life dressing up in Red Hats and purple clothing. If you happen to see someone where a purple hat and red clothing then wish them a Happy Birthday as it is there birthday month. Red Hatting is now around the world just about every country has a group.
In the top four shots I am trying on a purple wig at the HighRiver function. I meet a few new friends and had a good time.

I had sisters car and after I picked her up we had to go and check on the horses.
They thought my hat and flowers might be a good meal.
We did have fun taking the pictures. The one on the right is Buck and the other is Skip.


Thanks giving started off really good.
Leon had to go into work on the Sunday night
Bob was working Sunday on afternoons so we
thought we would have 2 dinners. Sunday night
with Leon and Monday night with Bob.
I baked apple and pumpkin pies on Saturday.
Sister got up early Sunday stufed and got the bird in the oven.
We then started on the veggies, since we have such a wide variety of likes we were going with, regular smashed potoates,
sweet pototoes, squash, corn & peas and gravy......

Sister got the regular potatoes ready for the stove
Then when I was doing the squash behind her she started with the sweet potoatoes or Yams. The peelers wasn't co-operating
so she switched to a big knife. Yep she did it cut her self really deep. So off to the hospital her and Leon go. Not bad only a hours wait time and she got herself stiched back up...2 stitches.

Well they stitched her up and put a huge bandage on it because it was still seeping blood.

The offending

I didn't get a picture of everyone at the table so I took one of the meal after the first round. We did this all over again Monday night with Bob which was Thanks giving.

Mom's Anniversary

Debi, Leon & I went to the mountians on the 10th anniversary, of our mothers passing,
the first picture of the Local Wild life

Ski resrorts with nature made snow

Pinic area with a little snow covering it

Leon you are going to be in trouble

Gotcha, and your going to get it now

I'll wash my hands first with the snow, then I will fire it at him, Leon where are you?

Ready, Aim, Fire

Hurry get going Sister he is coming to my window

All the animals on the road licking the salt off the road. Look at the Baby.

Pretty on the mountians, I just love the way the snow fell on the mountians.


If you look and see the pointed ridges, these are called the Hoodoo's, just inside Baniff. This is the area where we released our mother's ashes 10 years ago.

A moment of reflection.

Pretty mountian, in Baniff

Yep she is my sister

Let me whisper sweet nothings in your ear!

Deb and Leon at the Christmas store in Baniff, in front of one of many trees.

Lonesome Me, hubby is working this weekend

It was a good day in the mountians. We spent most of the day up there, exploring and looking around. Baniff's main street, was all tore up to refresh as the signs said. In reality they were putting in new storm drains.
