the Dog about Town: the Canada Day long weekend of June 29nd, 2013

we

have been

following the news

closely and our thoughts continue to be

with all those affected by the flooding here in southern Alberta.

the City of Calgary has recommended that folks stay off the roads to let emergency services respond in a timely fashion.

so once again this is a good weekend to stay where you are.

here’s a link to the Canadian Red Cross Guide to Flood Recovery.

for up to date information from the City of  Calgary here is the link to their News Blog.

the Canadian Red Cross is in need of volunteers and has set up this link for local residents to register for short-term volunteering positions.

the joys of Go4aWalk? days #172 to #174: after the flood

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? days #172 to #174 . . .

days #172 to #174 complete . . . we did a quick 30 minute pack walk around the neighbourhood on Friday.  it was raining pretty hard but Jake didn’t seem to mind.

the sun came out on Saturday so we walked with our backpacks on for about an hour on bicycle paths around Rocky Ridge.  we visited some places we hadn’t been to for a while.  Jake was pretty happy to spend time in the sunshine.

today we did another hour long walk but without our packs.  we left a bit earlier to try to avoid the mosquitoes.

. . . it was a good stay where you are weekend.

being close to family, friends

and new friends

was perfect.
