Well, it is time to say goodbye!!
WEATHER ALERT IN NORTHERN WINNIPEG – you are about to be hit by a flood of tears!!! (Sorry- the Howdle sisters are criers)
We came on Friday night, were welcomed with open arms and we have enjoyed every minute — but now the time has come to say goodbye. It really seems like we are leaving our closest family members. Bill and Vi and all the other cousins are truly wonderful people. It has been an absolute pleasure spending time with them. Laughter has filled the house. We have worried about Bill because we didn’t want to wear him out. He’s been a real trooper having four more women telling him what to do. Vi has done a great job training him though. LOL.
We would like to overtake the blog just one more time in an attempt to let the world know how much we love and appreciate the time spent here in Winnipeg. To all of our cousins who came to visit – thank you for taking the time out of your day -and holidays- to meet us. We had a great time. The bad news is, we all leave a little heavier than when we arrived due to Vi and other family members good cooking!!
Thank you Ken for the lovely e-mail. You’ll be happy to know that Bill was really impressed, and your Mommy read it and was proud as a peacock that her “little boy” wrote such nice words. Your sisters are impressed as well and we love you lots and – your welcome. No thanks needed, but really appreciated. However, switch off the cap lock and stop yelling at us!! (HA HA) We had to put up with that enough when we were growing up!!
To the Kings, Dan you will be happy to know that your lovely queen will be arriving back tonight. I’m sure both your wife and her lovely sister will be greeted with the red carpet and a beautiful bouquet of flowers you have gathered from around your kingdom as a small token of your affection. Reg will have a few more days to prepare for the arrival of his lovely wife – and of course, Bret can do no wrong, so whatever he does will be perfect.
So, the blog is back to you Bill. Know that even though we are leaving, we will be faithfully following your blog – not only because we love you, but because we’re worried about what you will be “editing” in/out in our comments.
Lots of Love, Sherry, Gloria, Shirley, and Aunt Isabel
