A good way to fight the winter blues is to visit your friends and neighbours.
Percy and I enjoyed a few of those events with Canasta at our home with friends Fred and Velvet Entwisle. Then we went into Stettler on Sunday for cribbage with Barry and Lorna Brown.
It could be noted that on both occasions, the women rocked!
