Gone for a Week

Photo from: My Royal Canadian Navy

I leave tomorrow at almost "Oh-dark-thirty", to head West for a week.

I'm not looking forward to the travel - I'm so sick of flying and the airlines etc. But once there, it should be fun:

  • Spend 3 days with 121 like minded individuals -well sort of. There may be a couple of "bun fights". However, I sure the evenings will be filled with impromptu merriness.

  • Visit with my brother and his wife for a few hours.

  • Visit the Dockyards for a couple of hours and see some kwel Navy stuff.

  • Enjoy the BC Coast weather and vista. The place where I''l be staying ( sleeping, eating, and almost every other event) is right on the water's edge and has a great view. Actually, its in the same neck of the woods as the picture above ( but 60 years later - I can tell you that much hasn't changed since then).

I don't know if I will have access to the internet, but even if I do, my week is going to be pretty full, so this is my last blog for a few days.

Ahhhh... now to eat brekkie and get out to run some errands. Damn, I hate packing. I think I'm taking more "stuff" than I am clothes. I had better not forget to bring some "Aspirin"......

It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and she's always gone too long
anytime she goes away.
