I hate Vancouver!!!! Saturday I went over to the B.C. Lions game. Going in from Horeshoe Bay it was easy and it lead me right to the stadium. I parked right beside the stadium for 10 bucks and had a couple hours to walk around the downtown. The downtown is kind of like Toronto and besides lots of stores there are lots of other sites walking around the city. People watching is always fun and Patty and I like to do that where ever we go. I ended up buyying a cable shutter release for my camera at London Drugs. Its a place simular to Wal Mart but is only out west as far as I know. I was looking for DVD for Ben called CrossRoads. Not the stupid chick flick with Brittney Spears but the movie with Ralph Machio the Karate Kid who challenges the devils guitar player to a duel to save some guys soul. It all started with a deal at the CrossRoads. I've seen the movie many times and the guitar solos are excellent.
I don't like it when people forward me all kinds of crap but I got two recently, both from Nina that made me laugh out loud. Here is the funniest one I've seen.
Tomorrow is Ben's birthday but because of school and work schedules we did a bit for him today. Patty and I bought Ben a scooter that he really wanted a week ago and we told him that was his gift. It wasn't a cheap scooter that's for sure and he seems to like it. Today we took him to Tim's for lunch today then to The Dairy Queen to pick out a cake. Patty picked up some chips and he had four girls come over for cake and to hang out. One of them is Tamara his new/old girlfriend from last year. After cake Ben sent us upstairs so they didn't have the old folks hanging around. Patty and I put on Shrek Two and lay ed on the bed watching it.
Well we haven't been up to a lot lately so not much to post about. Ben's birthday is on Monday and the kid is driving us nuts. His mom told him we will celebrate it tomorrow so now it's like we moved the date and hes telling everyone his birthday is tomorrow. And hes got a list of things for us to do. It looks like we will be taking him to the Cowichan Fair and letting him go nuts on the rides till he pukes.
Not sure if you've heard but Jean has sold the house she and dad lived in and is building an addition on to Kim's house and moving in there. It came as a bit of a shock when she first told me because I was looking forward to going to see it next summer. Some nice memories there to go along with some of the not so nice ones. Maybe its for the best because it would have been tough to go in there again. I'm glad for Jean that she won't be living on her own she needs company. I kind of felt her and Joan would have moved in together but she said Joan has a good set up with her family already. Jean also mentioned that she had sent a box of dad's things up to Karl's with Mike. She didn't tell me what was in it other than some stuff that you people had gotten him. She sounded pretty good and seems busy. Looking forward to Rick and Michele's wedding next year.
On Sept 1st I was going to a football game in Victoria and I started a tradition that I'd like to keep up. I go down to Vic earlier in the day and go whale watching. Patty is not into whale watching like I am and she's definitely not into football LOL. So I made the trip on my own and met up with CAPT Ron who guaranteed whales today. The weather was pretty good, a little cool but fairly sunny. The water was calm which made for a good boar ride. Any day on the ocean seeing Orcas is a good day but this wasn't one of the better days for whales. The whales stayed too close to shore so we were not allowed to get too close to them. The big male by himself in the picture swam further out from the shore and his family but just swam right on by
