We had advanced tickets to the Kenny Hess concert here at our resort. Several friends (within and outside the park) were attending too. Kenny is a prolific songwriter with credits that include touring with several big name country music artists, writing more that 600 songs, and mounting some large music festivals. He is best known as Canada's best known secret. And....he is very talented and puts on a really, really good show. He is a great story teller. He also wrote the song, '23 Days' that our daughter, Ginette recorded a few years back.
Check out his WEB site by clicking on the link below his photo.Before Kenny's concert, we invited several folks over for an early happy hour followed by burgers on the grill. It was a perfect late afternoon gathering.

Friday was a dedicated golf day. One of my regular men's golfing partners, Fred and wife Pat are in Palm Desert for the month of March. A prolific golfer, it was not long before we had lined up some golf. That started in earnest with a first round at the Palm Desert Golf Course; the course where my nephew, Ted Genereux is the superintendent. Ted is the youngest son of my oldest brother, Bernie and wife, Rita who call Yuma their winter home.

Pat was relaxing with her right arm propped up on a pillow, recovering from a severe break of her right wrist and arm from a recent fall. The cast is now removed but it will take some time before she can get back to her love for the game of golf.

|Hector's two sisters were there too. This is a nice photo with L-R Sharon (who calls Newfoundland home), Roz (who calls the Okanagan home) with Hector (who calls Vancouver Island home).|

|Mary does look forward to these visits. And to have some face time with Owen is a gift.|
|A nice visit.|

We have one more week in the desert before we begin our preparations to roll northward, back for home. It's that time of the year. Some of our friends have already headed north or are planning to do so in the days ahead.
That covers things from here, for now. Thanks for dropping by.
