Up, Up, and Away!

I didn't have a chance to post before I left, 
but I'm up, up, and away
to Calgary, Alberta, Canada
to spend some time with my family.

One of my sisters is recovering
from an operation last week,
and I am helping her out.

Shadow of My Plane
Landing in Las Vegas
En Route to Calgary

Below is one of my favorite Canadian pictures.
My brother emailed it to me
several years ago ~
so I have no idea of it's source.

It's not quite sunbathing weather in Calgary,
but it has been very nice.

I'm looking forward to catching up
on everyone's blogs when I get home.


  1. Hey, welcome home to Canada! Enjoy Cow Town! Actually, no, that's outdated. Calgary is a big metropolis now. These days it has an updated moniker, so . . . . enjoy the City of Cows!

  2. I'm waving at you from Edmonton!

    That's a cool shot of the plane shadow, love it.

  3. Enjoy being back on the Canadian side of things at the Calgary shack. Can't say I've ever been there, do some quick gambling while at Vegas's lair? If you win big all the eh's out there.

  4. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your sister.
    It's striking how much Calgary and Denver look alike.

  5. Welcome home to Canada! I hope you enjoy your stay.

  6. Such a wonderful city, I was there many years ago now.

  7. I hope your sister continues to recover nicely. What an amazing shot of your plane's shadow!!

  8. Have fun visiting your family! Wishing your sister a speedy recovery :)

  9. I went ~~~ HUH?! ~~~ the cities look exactly the same ~~~ how confusing! Oh I'm sure true Calgarians and Denverites know the diff ~~~ right!
    Speedy recover, Sis!
    On the way home maybe hop off AirVegas and play some slots ~~~ you just never know!

    Cheers ~~~ you are back in C-A-N-A-D-A!


  10. Best wishes to your sister, Louise.
    So that is where that 'only in Canada' photo disappeared to!! And we thought we hid it well!! lol (Ron is on the right!!)

  11. I hope your sister is doing well! So sweet of you to stay and help her out. I really love that airplane shadow photo ~ amazing shot!

  12. Thank you all for your well wishes for my sister! That was so kind of each of you. I shared them with Barb, and she was surprised and delighted! It's great to be back in Canada, even if I had to use my passport to go home! Have a good day, and take care!

  13. Calgary, eh? Well I have been to the zoo there. The real one, not the hockey arena in case you are wondering. But I haven't been beck in 25 years! Hope your sister is better soon!

  14. Hello Louise,
    Wishing your sister a speedy recovery and I hope you are having a good catch up with her.

  15. Great post, nice views on Calgary!
    Do not worry, your sister's health is more important than blogging...
    I hope she feels better soon.
    I have been quite busy in hides and elsewhere myself so I haven't been blogging much either!
    Cheers Fundy, keep well!

  16. Hope all goes well for you in Canada. Love those hunky guys on the ice, very funny, eh? :-)


Thank you for your comments! I appreciate the time and energy you put into making them very much.
