A day to visit Banff

Today was a great day to relax and enjoy our time at Roselle and Dan’s home.  Dan had some work he had to do in the morning we so just stayed there and chatted with Rosy and played with their young son.  This little guy is going to be so spoiled.  He has three sisters, all of whom are much older and treat him like god’s gift.  It is so fun to watch him light up as any one of them come into the room.  He smiles nearly all the time and seemed to be always in great spirits. 

Rosy is the same way; always in a good mood, ready to share experiences and stories and as helpful as can be.  She helped me with a small problem I’d been having with my new laptop with one quick touch. Boy did I feel silly.

We even got on our computers and called (shirlan) Shirley and Andrew in Australia.  I don’t have a web cam on my computer so it was fun to see and talk with our friend from “down under”! 

Early afternoon came and Dan got home.  We headed out towards Calgary from the southern edge where they live and stopped in at a Subway to pick up some lunch.  I cracked up at the sign out front. The two businesses next door to each other maybe should think about spacing their signs a little further apart.  I was ready to eat some Vietnamese & Thai style sub-sandwiches.   J
