I've been keeping busy and have been fortunate to have found walking partners and friends, Sandra and Gail. Sandra and her husband, Larry, are very involved in the community and have introduced me to people and volunteer opportunities which I've really appreciated.
I got to look after Gail's dog, Pepper, for a few days while she was visiting family on the west coast. I loved having the company, and there is nothing like the unconditional love you get from having a dog greeting you when you open a door!

Larry is very involved in the Lion's Club and asked if I would help out at a two day hearing and eye testing mobile clinic. I jumped at the chance and had a rewarding and fun filled experience being one of four volunteers that tested more than 700 students aged 4 to 18. We found a several kids with moderate to severe hearing loss, and many with significant sight issues. No wonder many struggle in school. The Lions Club helps provide hearing aids and glasses for those who can't afford them. Such a great organization. It was sad to hear kids talk about their parents not having health care insurance.

I'm going to Vancouver on May 31st for a week to dog sit for Brad and Anette (they are in St. Lucia celebrating their 5th anniversary but I will have 3 days with them when they return), then drive to Calgary for a day, then to Edmonton for the weekend to see our goddaughter, Megan Belanger, get married. Back to Calgary for another day and then back to Idaho on June 12th. I'll be putting lots of miles on the road, but looking forward to the trip.
