Double Birthdays!!

We have many people in our lives that we celebrate and today is a double celebration!

First on our birthday list is our Mom, Helen Beglaw. We hope you had an amazing day, Mom, with family around you. You are an awe-inspiring woman and we are grateful that you are in our lives. Your zest for life, unending love and humour are contagious and we wish you all the greatest things today!!

Great grandson, Gus Beglaw!
Next up on our  birthday hit list is our dear friend, Bob Bortolin. If you remember, our friends Bob & Danna are ones on the South Pacific cruise right now. It is their home that we have been "sitting" (along with my Mom's). Funny story is that they crossed over the International Date Line yesterday (or today??) and the date skipped from the 11th to the 13th. Bob feels that this means that he does not age this year and stays as young as ever!! We like this idea!!
To our great friend, somewhere in the South Pacific!!
Hope you had a great day, even though Oct 12th didn't exist! where you were!

Birthday boy, Bob & Danna!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY friend!!! 
Lots to be thankful for this weekend and always. We are thankful to have so many family and friends that we can wish birthday wishes to. We are thankful for the love of those same people. We are thankful for our beautiful grandson, Gus. We are thankful for our life here in such a great country as is Canada. We are thankful for our health.......amen! 
We were thankful to spend part of our day today golfing with
Josh & Kathy. Such a fun time!!
Look out LPGA!!!

Doug, in full swing action!!
So that's it for today. We will have more for tomorrow. We will have our Thanksgiving dinner here with the kids so we are really looking forward to that!!

Thought for the Day: Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.


  1. Once again I'm behind on reading posts. You two certainly do have a myriad of friends and relatives who you honor on a daily basis. I wish your mom a happy, happy birthday and also your friend. It seems you have a birthday or anniversary wish in just about every post. I love following along as you two continue to enjoy your lives to the hilt! Hugs friends!

  2. Right back to you, our friend!! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!
