Talked to Trevor and he hopes to be home by the end of the week. As Trevor and I are close to the same age, we agree that getting older is not for sissies.

Ernie and Jacqui Goddard celebated their 55th wedding anniversary on August 19 by spending a quiet day at home in the cold and wet weather. However, we did get together with family and friends in Red Deer on Saturday, Aug. 21when we met for dinner.
