The annual Christmas pageant at Christ Church Cathedral. Grandpa Jack was once again Simeon, at the end of the play. Russell was his assistant - helping him walk toward the Baby Jesus at the right time. All agreed he did a fine job - strong voice, no lines missed. Hurrah!Posted by Picasa

Now I'm 64 - must admit it. Ros threw me a party Dec. 2, the day. I sang, "Will you still need me, will you still feed me?..." I do still feel needed, and Lord knows, I'm well fed. Note the heat from all those candles.Posted by Picasa

Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, 2005. We spent it at home, reading a relaxing. Especially Ros. Grandpa Kellett wasn't marching in the parade so we watched the ceremonies from Ottawa on television. Posted by Picasa

David listened to the game on his radio while Jack watched from his scooter. We were in the disabled section since we were with him. they weren't bad seats. Enjoyed it, but it took too long to get a taxi afterwards.s Posted by Picasa

Went to the BC Lions vs Saskatchewan football game Saturday. We were in the end zone. BC lost, 13 to 12. It doesn't seem like a football stadium, but a big room. People seemed to be enjoying it though. Posted by Picasa

It was a good getaway. Sorrento is beautiful, any time of the year. Posted by Picasa

What I did mostly was pick apples. There were a lot of them. Posted by Picasa
I went up with David. Here he is driving the Sorrento tractor, threatening to run me over. Also helping out is Arthur Nash. Posted by Picasa
I'll have to admit that poaching this pig was a bit gross. I had to turn it for over an hour. Actually, this wasn't my view of it, the rear end was. Posted by Picasa

I spent a weekend at Sorrento Centre. It was associate's weekend. About 30 or so associates - people who donate a bit of money to Sorrento - come to help close the camp for the winter. A highlight was a pig roast. Posted by Picasa

In short, a very nice getaway. Posted by Picasa

And fruit... Posted by Picasa

Lots of pumpkins on sale. Ros got three. Posted by Picasa

On the way back Ros and I stopped in at the Old Grist Mill near Keremeos, which is still working.. for tourists, not to grind flour as it did for 20 years in the late 1800s. Posted by Picasa

Some of the wineries have art, in this case, a sculpture garden. Posted by Picasa

We were lucky with the weather. While it rained a bit, generally not when were were out, and what rain there was came with a rainbow. Ros took this picture. Posted by Picasa

Thus. Grapes behind a net. Posted by Picasa

It is a beautiful area. This is not far from Naramata and the Kettle Valley bicycle trail - actually shot from the trail. This grpe grower has put his vines under nets, which isn't all that common, it seemed, though nets are used to cover the grapes. Posted by Picasa

Ros and I went with six friends to the Okanagan this weekend, Oct. 1 & 2, to relax and tour wineries. Here we are at one of them - Valerie, Paul, John, Kitty (almost hidden), Ray, and Ros. Donna has stepped to the side to look at something other than wine. Posted by Picasa

She was even able to tell the players which direction to go in - oh, no, this is ruling in favour of the red team... Posted by Picasa

Soon she got the hang of it again, and was enjoying the game. Posted by Picasa

She went out Burnaby for a game... I came, on my bicycle, and took a few pictures. Posted by Picasa

Ros studied the field hockey rules Saturday. She was a bit nervous about being a referee. Posted by Picasa

Russell was at the event all day, helping out. He brought the "love bike" which I sat on while the blessing took place. Afterwards Jane came, and with some other friends we went for supper. Posted by Picasa

The Environmental Task Force of the Diocese of New Westminster sponsored a blessing during Vancouver's Car Free Day on Thursday (Sept. 22). Here the Rev. Peter Fischer is blessing me, or the bicycle, or both (I forget) assisted by Paige Dampier, of the sponsoring group. We didn't attract too many people to this event, but it was fun and I think worthwhile. Posted by Picasa
