+3C, grey and misty has replaced the overnight fog. Sorry to hear this site is shutting down personal blogs. I've enjoyed daily visits to several keeping up on happenings around the continent. I'll miss that.

Partly cloudy and 0C going up to 6C in the PM. Fredericton bound. Mother is concluding her earthly journey at 92 yo. A long life devoted to family, service to others and her strong faith. She is ready to go and anxious to be reunited with Dad, her partner for 73 years.
Will be absent from here for a while.

Finger foods always welcome with them.

The city snow removal people arrived yesterday and reoved the snowbanks on both sides of the street. It's nice to be able to drive down the street without having to stop for oncoming vehicles. Birdfeeders have been restocked and await today's bir...
