In another life when I worked in long term care, I used to love talking to residents about their travel experiences. I remember showing a live webcam shot of the Hong Kong Harbour much to the delight of a former teacher who said that was her favorite destination. That got me thinking. With a lot of time, photos and stories swirling in my head, I contacted some seniors' facilities and offered to do a travel slideshow in the hopes my stories would spur reminiscing of happy memories for their residents. Nobody died of boredom (although a couple had naps) and many shared great stories. Mission accomplished!

March was also a month of celebrations and it started off with Roy Christie's surprise 60th birthday.

Neal popped the question to Camille, who he met in France in 2010 and Brad and I were honoured guests at their civil ceremony held at Kananaskis on March 25th.
|Camille's family live in France but a few of them were able to view the ceremony via Skype. Isn't technology grand?|

|The two Heathers with the same motto --- when our kids are happy --- we're happy.|

Roger arrived home March 31st at 2 p.m. and by 5:30 p.m. we were having a great time with good friends Dwayne and Annette Majcher, their son Tyler and his wife Monica and son Clark, and Ed and Colleen Walsh. Dwayne cooked up an amazing Moroccan meal for Anette's birthday and they graciously included my birthday in the celebrations.
|An epic salad|

|Another very happy birthday|

Good friends are like stars… you don't always see them, but you know they are always there.
