Over, much too quickly

We did a little visiting, a little sightseeing, a little eating, a lot of sleeping :) All in all a nice visit but it was way too short, it takes time to recover from flying across the country courtesy of Air Canada's insistence that you lay over for hours in the two centers of the Canadian Universe; Toronto & Montreal before hopping on a little puddle jumper for the last hour and a half to Bathurst. Oh well, hopefully their next visit will be a longer one and by then the elusive Mila may have built up some vacation time at her new job.

Hail, hail, the gangs all here!

Well, my sons made it safe and sound on their cross Canada journey to visit us here.  Imagine a five hour layover in Toronto or three hours waiting in Montreal.  Sounds like a torture the CIA would dream up but no, just our national airline doing its bit to screw over its customers.  However, I digress.  It's great to see them both, they were up until 2:30 in the morning adjusting their body clocks to NB time, Lynn and I however, had retired hours earlier.  Jake couldn't believe that his pack grew by two and loves these new pack members, Loki is beside himself, four extra hands for pets and Odo, well he's just being Odo.

They look good and I'm sure that once they have time adjusted, we'll see more of them :)
