How do you count your rabbits?

First off, I would like to congratulate all 2014 Graduates whether it was kindergarten, Grade 9 or high school.

First off, I would like to congratulate all 2014 Graduates whether it was kindergarten, Grade 9 or high school. We have a quite few members of our community that will be graduating this year from Morrin High School so I would like to send out my congratulations to them. Harlee Avramenko, Brittany Cawiezel, Marcus Herd, Denver Hodge, Bradley Nelson, Alicia Jarvis and Alice Sinclair are all headed out into the big, exciting world of adulthood, so best wishes to them. This wonderful event will be held on June 27. The other grads from Morrin are Kyle Montgomery, Kevin Devaleriola and Malcolm Johnson-Tait.

Congratulations to all of you. I would like to include any other grads from our community so give me a call if you know of someone.

Pat Holowath hosted a birthday party recently at St. Mary’s Lodge. She treated the guests to delicious Angel Food cake with whipped cream and bumbleberry fruit. A large crowd enjoyed the guitar playing and singing of Ray Duff. Jill Brodie had planned to demonstrate her dogs’ talent with herding ducks but rain had hampered the ability to do this outside show, so she brought in one dog which danced delightfully to the music and enjoyment of the audience. The extended lodge members who celebrated their birthday were John Hayward, Earla Campbell and Glenna Boulton. In the lodge, Adeline Guynup, Everna Corry and Beryl Gelinas also celebrated their birthdays.

I would like to pass on that Doris Cawiezel is spending some time in the Red Deer hospital, so include her in your thoughts and prayers.

Don’t forget to submit your slow pitch team to Doug Hodge 403-368-2152 or Derek Krywcun 403-368-3760 for the Rumsey Sports days. There will be camping spots available so plan to stay and enjoy the weekend.

I won’t be submitting a column next week so I will leave you with the joke of the week and let’s hope it will be good enough to keep you giggling for a couple weeks:

Teacher: If I give you two rabbits and two rabbits and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Paddy: Seven!

Teacher: No, listen carefully again. If I give you two rabbits and two rabbits and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Paddy: Seven!

Teacher: Let’s try this another way. If I give you two apples and two apples and another two apples, how many apples have you got?

Paddy: Six.

Teacher: Good. Now if I give you two rabbits and two rabbits and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Paddy: Seven!

Teacher: How on earth do you work out that three lots of two rabbits is seven?

Paddy: I’ve already got one rabbit at home now!

Happy Canada Day, everyone!
