Thanks for another great event!

Once again the power of volunteers amazed us all over the weekend!

Lionel was more than an Emcee

He came here a stranger but quickly became a friend to just about everyone in the Rainy River area.
I am writing about Lionel Robert.

Masked marauders left us a present

What’s gray, fat and wears a mask?
No it is not a bank robber, but raccoons certainly fit the bill of a robber.

The changing sounds of the season

The seasons are changing and so are the sounds.
In the past couple of weeks I have really noticed the decline in the number of birds chirping away in the morning.

Not quite playing on a full deck yet!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with my girlfriend’s stepfather “Pirate Jim” on a new deck for her house.

Operating blind!

Have you ever operated blind?
Well that is how we felt last Monday and Tuesday at the Record.

A tribute to Auntie Linda

Editor’s Note: My Aunt Linda passed away August 2nd. Here is the tribute I gave at her funeral.
Linda was an amazing person.
She was a loving wife, a mother, a grandma, a friend, a volunteer and she was short.

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3 (27 in dog years), passed away on July 23, 2007.
While his time on Earth was short in terms of people years and his time with his adopted family even shorter, Ricky quickly won the hearts of all who met him.

Some updates for all of you

Turning the “Big 4 0” three times!

How many times can one turn 40?
The answer would seem to be once... but in my case it seems like there is no end in sight for the number of times I will turn this week.
On Sunday I had one day left to enjoy my decade known as the Thirties. But the day marked not only the end of a decade of my life but the end of a very trying week with one of my dogs.
