On Sunday we were reminded how precious our lives are.
Kim and I and our daughter Veronica volunteered to help at a benefit for a little boy with brain cancer in Bemidji.
Saturday could very well have been our last 90+ degree day of 2015!
While so many people were complaining about the heat, I could not help but think it is all down hill from here!
Are you enjoying the salad season?
It is the time of year where gardens are yielding so many goodies hardly a day goes by without us getting to eat fresh salads!
It was a long, long, long weekend... without cell phone service!
Friday evening Rainy River residents lost cell and in some cases internet services from the Tbaytel tower.
Have you ever met someone that instantly inspires you?
Last year at my grandma's 90th birthday party I met my sister's partner, Rob Fuller for the first time... or Henry as we called him!
Have you ever been to a place where you feel like you are at home, even though you were not born there?
For the past eight summers we as a family have visited such a place.
way by Rainy River's Canada Day fireworks display this year!
I have seen and photographed many many years of fireworks shows and it is my opinion that this year's was the best ever!
Last Wednesday I found myself remembering the class of 1985's graduation.
It was 30 years ago (wow time flies!).
Father's Day this year was an extra special one for me!
I began my day by calling my dad, Irwin Johnston, who is now residing at the Long Term Care facility in Rainy River.
Have you found yourself "tractor watching?"
Now that the big dig is underway on Main Street in Rainy River I find myself flashing back to the mid-1970s when I was a young kid.
