2020 THE YEAR OF CHANGE

This past year was full of ups and downs, mostly downs.

1. Many of us lost loved ones. We lost our oldest daughter on 2 Aug from a heart problem and we learned a lot about people that did NOT have a will, how to settle a deceased estate, government foot-dragging, and so on and so on.

2. My body is catching up with my age and I have met far too many doctors.

3. My pacemaker is out of step, my pill collection is growing and my aches have found new spots to reside. and

4. on top of all of that our travel and curling had to cease. (bummer)


There were some ups, such as:

1. our family grew more together and close,

2. visiting the ER a few times were reasons (albeit not good ones) to be getting out of the house. Yvonne has been and still is a rock, not only putting up with my moaning and groaning but also ensuring that I stay as healthy as possible. Where would I be without her?

3. got more phone calls (from doctors)

4. Trump got trumped and Bidin got IN,

5. more people are cycling,

6. like ours, many families seem to be more close,

7. Justin is bailing out the needy and not so needy while increasing our national debt. (It's only money)

8. Covid-19 has not affected any of our family or friends.

9. a vaccine or two have arrived on the scene.


2020 was full of bad things and sadness aplenty, but

21 promises to bring us joy and help for many many.

Hi Ken

Sorry you have lost a family member before you passed on. A hole in the family unit, a hole in your heart. I see you have learned a lesson about wills. Cannot be emphasized too much. Your family will be much better when it is their turn to look after your estate. Make sure they know ahead of time, what is in the will. Today, not when you get around to it. The rest of today is not guaranteed either. Those with the aches and pains of their past, are very fortunate they did what they could at the time it was possible. The fun and enjoyment you had far outweighs the downside of aging.

May 2021 be…

So sorry for the loss of your daughter Ken; I can't remember if I knew about that when I was talking to you the other day; It's something I now know how it feels to lose someone we love; I remember meeting your daughter when we dropped by to visit with you and family when we visited some friends in Victoria on a visit to our Son's in Vancouver.! We had driven over & by Ferry to the Island.!!!

Sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter Ken. Get that pacemaker back in step and take it easy on all those pills. At 73 now I am still going strong except for my darn knees which I seem to have worn out.
