|Brie checks out some apples and chooses one for a snack before helping to peel the others.|
|Out in Edmonton, Owen takes advantage of the fall leaves before the snow falls.|
|I like this photo, taken only a few days after baby Kaylie was born. Nana (Jeanette) is enjoying some time with Kaylie and her mom and dad.|
|Little Owen is having fun running through some leaves.|
|While in Alberta, Deni took Owen and me for some quad rides away from the city of Edmonton.|
|Our 4th (and latest) grand child, Kaylie. She's pretty in pink|
|Our motorcycle friends from Vancouver Island dropped by our home on a return trip from Alberta.|
|Hector and Diane are heading out from our home; on their way to the BC Ferries terminal and the boat ride over to their Island home.|
|It looks like I am busy on the iPad....but.....it seems Jeanette caught me catching a wee nap in our sun room.|
She claims that I was napping. I believe that I was simply checking my eyelids for cracks...and...otherwise busy reading! :)
|Back from a golf round, I found our hot tub was busy with Trevor, Ginette and Easton enjoying the jets and the heat.|
|A 'selfie' with Easton (Jeanette and Brie in the BG) on one of our many bicycle rides in the neighbourhood.|
|Hector (L) and Lucky (R), with their spouses joined Jeanette and I for lunch in White Rock, only a few days back.|
Lucky and Trena are now well ensconced in their lovely Class 'A' motorhome in the sun belt area of Cathedral City, CA. They left the day following our lunch.
|L-R Diane, Jeanette and Trena are likely planning their own play time in Palm Springs, come the new year.|
|Two or our regular Sunday morning, Open Mic attendees are busy on their cell phones; quite likely fact checking something someone said. In that group, one has to have his facts straight or someone will find you wrong. LOL|
|Last Sunday while hiking in one of our nearby urban forests.|
Our long time friends (photo below) have sold their home and are now on their way to their new Province of New Brunswick, on the eastern end of Canada. Their children and grand children live there and they made the decision to move there too. Who can fault that decision? Family is a like magnet.
We'll have to find our way out to the eastern seaboard in the years ahead.
|Sharing a last lunch with our friends, Denis (standing - right) and Odette, seated next to Jeanette.|
While writing this blog, I received a text message, along with the two photographs below. While on their first day drive eastward, Denis and Odette got held up in the small city of Revelstoke, BC (in the the heart of the BC Rocky Mountains) due to inclement weather and an accident on the Trans Canada Highway #1 that put a stop to east and west bound traffic.

|I caught this saying at the entrance of a funky little lunch place near our home. I found it fitting in view of the recent terrorist attacks in the world class city of Paris.|
|Scenes like this one are pre-occupying my mind of late. I so look forward to getting ready for our journey south once Christmas is over with.|
|...and spending some time here.|
Thanks for dropping by.
