Ros had a teachers' union barbecue to go to (no spouses allowed) and took off on the bicycle carrying a fruit salad (which you can't see). It's perfect cycling weather.

This is where I should have been sitting this afternoon, rather than fooling around with the camera - and reading a book and having a beer. It's so green this time of year. The wheelbarrow in the background though reminds me there's always work to do in the garden.
Here's Fred in his more traditional garb after an ordination service on Sunday. On behalf of diocesan bishops in the Dioceses of New Westminster and Kootenay, the Archbishop ordained five people. In the picture are the Rev. Patrick Blaney, who will serve at the Cathedral, and the Rev. Kelly Duncan, who is destined for the Diocese of Kootenay
I enjoyed as Communications Officer for the Diocese of New Westminster being with Archbishop Fred Hiltz, here touring a subsidized housing complex that the Church has been involved in. Jack Card is a resident and storekeeper in "The Wellspring." His dog is named Ruby. Fred, head of the Anglican Church of Canada, came for a four day official visit, and one thing he did was get a taste of the social services the diocese is involved in. The Archbishop loves dogs--he just lost a Labrador that had been in the family for 15 years, and really missed him. "The Wellspring" is one of relatively few places where people can keep their pets.

Here is the rendition of the hymn that I taped. It will be part of a national project. Across the countries groups and parishes in the Anglican Church of Canada will sing and tape themselves... and donate to the Council of the North.
