... THAT ALL THE GUYS WERE SHARING. I AM SURE THE PARTY BEGAN AT 7 OR 8 AND ENDED PROMPTLY AT 11, MAYBE 12 BUT THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN PUSHING IT. I CAN REMEMBER BILL TEACHING ME ALL HIS JIVE MOVES:)
THOSE WERE THE DAYS! GREAT MEMORIES, BUT THAT IS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT.
... TO TALK TO A COUPLE WHO DO CEDAR CARVINGS. THE YOUNG MAN TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN ALL THE ANIMALS CARVED INTO EACH CARVING.
SO FOR ALL THE TOURISTS WHO COME TO NANAIMO THIS COUPLE ARE ON THE WALKWAY BY THE HARBOUR ON NICE DAYS SHOWING THEIR CARVINGS WHILE THEY DO CARVINGS. THESE ONES WERE FROM $40 TO $60. ALL GREAT ORIGINAL WORK.

Lynn and Steve were going to follow us most of the way, but we move a little slow sometimes (depending on the kids) and they needed to get back to Gabriola, so we parted ways after lunch in Port Alberni.

My 2010 resolution...
