In any event, the following is why I titled this blog as `Mishmash - Part Deux.
I mentioned in an earlier blog that I had the opportunity to take several motorcycle rides while Jeanette was busy with family business. I rode well over 600 km during the several days spent in the countryside.
|This is but one of the numerous photos I took of oil and gas exploration and production in the Province.|
|What is the significance of this sign?|
|Other than a few homes, the old church is gone - replaced with this 'Catholic Renewal Centre'.|
|My sister Paulette's home - south of my boyhood town of St. Paul, Alberta|
|Hmm, I wonder if Paulette wants to take it for a ride.|

During my motorcycle rides, I took an interest in taking photos of the numerous churches that dot the prairie landscape. The following are some examples of the many taken.
|A small Catholic Church...left in disrepair.|
|A Ukrainian Catholic Church....still in use and very well maintained|
|Another Ukrainian Catholic Church|
|The Ukrainian Orthodox church that Jeanette's maternal grandparents were members of.|
|Kaleland Ukrainian Orthodox Church - where Jeanette and I were married.|
|Another view of the little country stone church where we exchanged our vows in 1975.|
Well, I've pretty well given you the mishmash of late....so I better sign off before Google impose limits on photos and story telling.
Thanks for dropping by.
