Balloons & Whistles – over 10,000 views! (big grin)

I have been busy with getting a speech ready for tomorrow for Toastmasters, and reading the parallel story of Enders Game.

Today I logged in and saw I had over 10,000 views. I am so thankful to the readers, and subscribers who visit, and encourage me.  I consider it a gift and compliment that people read, and share my blog, and subscribe. Thank you very much.

my love and I on the beach

my love and I on the beach

Today was a warm day in the sunny Okanagan. It is the time of year when the days are hot, nearly 30 degrees but the beaches are nearly empty, and locals tend not to swim in the lakes (Skaha and Okanagan) after labor day. Now the lakes are still being used mind you, boaters, kayakers, dragon boat racers, Stand Up paddlers, and people with floaties of all kinds; just less swimmers.

I was in the lake two weeks ago, and it was still nice, still refreshing, and my voice still rose an octave when the water hit about a foot below my beltline.

you first I dare you

you first I dare you

Really the perfect time for people to visit this wine country is now, bring your bikes, and blankets for the beach and enjoy the water bravely, just as I do; plus no lineups for ice cream.




watch that flipper buddy

Wish me luck for tomorrow’s speech!  Comments and suggestions welcome!
