Day 21 – Free day! In order to be able to get myself up to date, this free day posting will be a brief photo album!
The Calgary Three have pressed on to Moose Jaw, I’ve had a very chilled-out (Father’s) day starting at the kids’ Swift Current Box Car Races (down the main drag in town):
…then having breakfast at “Smitty’s”, where I broke a personal record for number of coffees consumed within an hour or so (3 cups plus an entire jug, kindly left by the waitress long after she cleared my breakfast away, as I kept bothering her for refills):
…persuaded the nice waitress to give me a $10 voucher, even though I was celebrating Fathers’ Day alone. Sniff.
…met Pastor Dan and the big group outside his church, Victory Church, with their prized cars, all spruced up for display and demo rides for Father’s Day. Dan had a beautiful red Mini, the star of the show, with kids queuing up for another go around the parking lot in it. (I gather he also owns another 47 cars within the family). We discussed SOS Children’s Villages which he knew well, as he is a supporter of and volunteer for several children’s charities himself. (Check out the classic bike also entered in competition today)
Off for supper now at Boston Pizza calorie intake centre, then an earlyish night before heading south (heavens above, whatever next?) with a view to heading east again (that’s better) towards Ponteix (silent “i” I’m told). Wishing all dads out there, but especially my own, a very happy Father’s Day, though most of you may be asleep. What better way to enjoy it, eh dad? Bx
