Saturday & Sunday, 6-7 July 2013.
Thought some of the out of town CD-OM folks might like to take a picnic in High River this weekend. So we sent out an invite and got a small number up for the event.
Shelley suggested we pop over to her friends Annie and Herb. They have a lovely garden home and an art gallery. We caught them quite by surprise and they indicated their place was such a mess. We graciously offered to help tidy things up a bit with them. That took up Saturday. Sunday we just toured the neighbourhood to find something you could really get dirty at. Too easy. Another great day done.
|Shelley Bannister, Pat Willmott, Denys Beames, Karl Burndorfer - AHS team|
|Little bit of dust buildup on their driveway.||I'll just start at the top of this ramp and clean things up at bit. Don't want anyone to slip, do we now.||Lets switch to power tools now. No power! Not a problem.||Bit of petrol in the tank, Now where's the on switch?|
|Oh that's right, manual start on this model.||Nice time for a break, Please join us for a choice of Stroganoff, Asian stir fry (Basmati Rice!), Salads and / or sandwiches. Followed by desserts and your choice of beverages.||She may not keep up with the dusting, but she's an awesome cook!||Shelley and Herb into some heavy lifting. Compost bin at the back of the yard, right?|
|More gas already!||Dirty water out, clean in...||We need smaller buckets!||Come on boys, take a bit of time for a nice cool drink of water!|
|The good old days of being a kid and making mud pies, muffins, cookies, bundt cakes...||Car wash training, if you get good here, you can do cars.|
|Pat, a veritable ray of sunshine in the group. Well, at least 2 500 watt bulbs worth, and that's bright!||Just don't make them like this anymore. Quite sturdy these beams!||Almost done washing up the spilt potting soil.||Communal showers for everyone after work. Just need to get a little more wet on the front side here.|
|Tea is ready Pat, hurry up.||I'll just need a minute to wash up a bit everyone.||We do cleanup nice, see!||We will try to have it a bit more tidy next time you pop by.|
|Do come again.||I don't think it's just Herb & Annie, the whole neighbourhood seems a bit disorganized.||Not much of a roller coaster either, I think even I could stomach that ride.||You'll think twice when you go under that bush.|
|Well then, on second thought, maybe I'd pass on their roller coaster.||Do we line up here for the rides?||Seems sturdy enough!||Remind me not to try their Water Slide boat ride.|
|Whole new meaning to foot fungus eh!||Pat: before filling 1 dumpster.||The full dumpster.||Pat: after filling the dumpster, pretty gnarly now!|
|This is how mud wrestling started. See this chap next to me,||You get a handful of this mud...||Throw it at him. He'll push you. You'll slip in the mud and grab him as you fall...||Thanks
so much Annie and Herb. Couldn't find 2 nicer people to help out. We'll
have lots of fun memories of the event.
Hope you don't mind the teasing. You have a tough road ahead, and we would certainly come again if you need us.
