how to be fiona's husband

Apparently there are a series of tests

the first one is on skateboards where the husbands to be have to go over ramps and stuff
then do it again on rollerskates

then they have to pass the protection test ...
protect fiona from a robber

then they have to like the colour of her bedroom

and finally, they have to be able to take care of her mom and dad when they're really old

and if they fail just one test, they're out

she's literally dreamed that up.

I think I keep changing the colour of her bedroom!!!!

Fun things to do at the OC

Of course there was checking flower pay phones for change.
-Elevators and water fountains in Sears and Eatons.
-Pinball and bingo fed gumball machines in Zellers
- and the carpet display in Sears...
I guess some things never get old.

Daddy's Girl

In the Stores now...

As she appears in the current Sears Father's Day Fashion flyer pg 4, on-line and in print.
FYI, the card is a prop based on Chloe's own drawing. I guess they didn't want to give her the artistic credit too so they made their own.

Coming soon to a flyer or catalog...

wild weekend

the storms came through on Wednesday and the power went out. So we made it through the first 24 hours. still no power. freezers stayed tight closed, glenn went to bring home blocks of ice for the fridge. ALL filled to the brim with food - sides of lamb, all of the processed chicken. YIKES.
Lucky our neighbours down the street got their power back, we found out through facebook ... and mom spying into my account (as per my permission of course)
so we headed over for a shower (remember in the country, no power means no water)
and the offered us a generator
so we had enough juice to keep the freezers topped off
and the phones went down
friday ... nothin and rumours it would be till sunday.
the SHEARING ... still a go and no way to contact everyone to call it off
had the gennie to allow the shears to work.
LJ and fam bring bottled drinking water
the super Hickey fam lend us the cottage again if needed.
and we manage, and the 100% rain forecast holds till after noon when we're done
lots of fun for all.
Fiona and I both took a bit off one of the sheeps. Llamas especially funny now (simon held the leash while the llama was tied to a pole)
thanks to LJ and CC for the photos.
Celebrated wee Chloe's 4th birthday too and a pre-dads day for Lj
Dave's should be on the way this week along with Benjamin's long lost power cord for his DS! (not forgotten and quite safe!)
