I wish every one of you a healthy and prosperous 2016, and may all your own wishes for the next twelve months come true.
How have the first eight days of this New Year slipped by already? Was I not paying attention? I suppose my problem is I’m still on Vancouver time (three hours behind Ontario). I’ve been home two days and haven’t quite clicked back to my time.
December 29th, our second day in Vancouver proved more than memorable. Mary and I finally fell into bed around 11:30 p.m. We shot up, almost standing, from tantalizing slumber at 11:39 when a crack like an exploding bookcase dumping books on the floor in fury. It wasn’t till the next morning we heard there’d been an earthquake. She and I experienced only the terrifying c-r-a-c-k at our end of the house. Our hosts at the other end felt the ground shake. Check this out:
New Year’s Eve was also eventful. This is the birthday girl. Whew. Glad we ran out of candles and cake or else we’d have had to book the fire department for standby. She’s well preserved, yes?
It’s good to be back—or will be—once I’m in the swing of things again.Will post again next Friday.
Happy, happy New Year to us all!
