Easter Weekend Bonus!
I had a great Easter weekend. On Thursday night my daughter came home from Calgary for Easter. She has been a training course for the last three weeks. It was good to see her and we all went out for the evening. On Friday I had tickets to the Opera and it was lovely. The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra played and the Kitsilano women's and men's choir sang. I had never been to an opera and I found this to be very relaxing and beautiful.
On Saturday we went out as a family to the Fraser Heritage Park and had some fun walking the trails and then took Lucy for a swim at Kilby. On the way home we took $20.00 each and went to the sorry excuse that passes for a casino in Abbotsford Mission. The deal is nobody in our party spends more than their $20.00 and if they win the quit and share with the rest of us. I won $110.00 so everyone was very happy with me.
On Sunday I took my Aunt some flowers and spent a couple of hours with her. I then came home and helped my daughter get ready to fly back to Calgary this morning.
Today when I came home from taking Lucy out there was a message on my post from someone named Crazy Cath I had never heard from before. I followed the links to discover that Nervus Rex had awarded me the E for Excellence blog award I was so stunned that some one actually likes the stuff I throw up here when I have time. Thank you so much for that!

And because without Miss Lucy I would have little to blog about some days she got to choose some friends also:
Maggie & Mitch
The Zoo Crew
I hope that everyone had a great Easter and got to spend it with people they love.
