Well its another rainy day in B.C. I'm not sure why everyone complains about the rain but other than I don't like useing my camera too much in the rain because its digital and has all those diodes and other electronic thingys I don't mind it at all. It feels a little cooler than if the sun was at and it was the same temp. Yesterday I went to Nanaimo yesterday but didn't get much acomplished. I took some pictures for the football team for some event comming up June 1st. Hung out and talked to some of the players after practise which was cut short because of the rain.

Today I decided to hang out here so I took Aunt Glady's shopping and then took her to lunch. I told her it was on me because she likes to sneak up and pay for it when she says shes going to the washroom so she let me buy today. We had a nice chat about how she met Uncle Don. She also told me other family stories from way back when. We just sat and chatted while having a nice lunch in a restaraunt called the Dog House. After I dropped her off i went and picked up Lalaine from school. Jess would love this school because they have their own stable with horses. Lalaine says her class gets to go riding some days when the weather is nice.

I'm not too sure whats up for the rest of the week. I'm trying to decide whether or not I'm going over to the mainland this weekend for the B.C. Lions scrimmage. Lorne Plante from the V.I. Raiders football team is still there. He even got his name on the news for getting into a fight with a D lineman at camp. I really want to go but its kind of expensive to go for the day with your car. The camp is in Chilliwack and I'm not sure if there are busses that run a normal schedule to there. I'm going to research that tonight and I'm going to talk to the owner of the Raiders because I'm pretty sure he and his son are going over but they might have a car load with coaches. He might be able to get me on the field for pictures.

Now for the news...

I called and talked to Jean to see how dad is doing. He was napping because they had been out at a casino for a couple hours with Aunt Alice. I thought his appointment with the cancer clinic was yesterday for some reason but its not till June 7th. While talking to Jean I asked her if I could come back and stay with them again. I told her I knew before I left Ontario that that is where I should be to help dad. After talking to Dave DeVier at the fire station I knew in my heart I should be there to help dad. Dave went through all this last year with his mom. He never once told me I should stay and he told me it wasn't going to be easy. I'm glad that no one else tried to talk me out of leaving. As hard as it was it was something that I needed to do for myself. I do want to make it clear that I know this is where I want to be and the time will come when I come back out here for good. I can't explain it it just feels like home to me on the island. I had a good talk with the owner of the team and the place where I use to work and explained it to him. Everyone out here says they will miss me but that they understand. I went into work the other day to talk to the new manager and asked him if he was the guy I needed to suck up to if I wanted my job back. He asked me if I had my boots and said it wouldn't take much because they were short a sawyer. I told him I just wanted to keep the door open for the future and his exact words were "no problem dude". Now I have a couple things I need to do and a couple I want to do so I'm looking at leaving in about 2 weeks for the long drive back. I'm hoping to get a trailer hitch and bring my trailer back with just a couple things I'd like, the main one being my bike. I want to start riding around the bay with Mike on weekends. If we ride to Solid Gold's I'm not riding you back on my bike Mike! I'll also have to get a real job when I get back so Shawn better watch out I'm gunning for his!! I'll have to let Dave know I need a weeks vacation because I'm booking a flight back her at the end of August to catch some football games. Well thats enough for now sorry I have no pictures but I did add some wolf shots on my photo blog.

Nice to her you're coming back Kev. I will set up a poker night for the night of your return. Maybe you Uncle Mike and I can all go in on a three seater bike for those long trips to the Solid Gold. I'll even sit in the front, but you guys have to keep pedelling. On the other hand maybe someone else should steer on the way home. Can't wait to see you!!!
