For those mainlanders a CFA is Come From Away (I hope or I will be shot) and that is exactly what I am and always will be I believe. I am not sure of the ‘code’ of when or how you become a CFA … if you are off the island for a while do you become a CFA? I don’t know … I feel sort of non-CFA’ish only because I married an Islander. Who knows!
Anyway the weekend went pretty fast. We hung out at Bev and Tony’s house on Saturday as we were extra bagged. Carter hasn’t been napping much (more on that later) we think because of a cold he is harbouring somewhere deep inside. That hasn’t stopped Carter from playing with Shutout though.
Connor has been having fun with Shutout as well. Needless to say this trip will reinforce in his mind that he loves dogs and that all small boys should have one. (Thankfully both parents agree that having a dog is like having another child that can’t be taken on trips such as this!)
Friday night we had a nice fire outside in the backyard of Bev and Tony’s.
The boys summarily went to bed after the fire … note how Carter isn’t asleep?
Ah Carter!! The love of everyone’s life. He must be battling germs or something because yesterday he didn’t even nap all day. Oh boy was he ever cranky! C’est la vie! We bit the bullet and went to Bowring Park here in the city. It is a nice park with lots of birds. Unfortunately the local talent decided to steal one of the swan’s signets and now they are swimming around the pond looking very lost. Sad to say the least. Apparently the other mother ducks are losing babies as well. Some say it might be some of the local wildlife in the park but the money is on the human ‘rats’ taking them for some reason. Anyway it was fun for all ….
Today I got the day off and went to The Wilds golf course about 1/2 hour south of the city. It was really fun and the weather was outstanding. I was not Tiger Woods today to say the least but a little bit of Mike Weir (who sucks this year too) in my overall game. The golf course is one of three that the current Premier of Newfoundland owns. He is a multi-millionaire before being Premier after selling his cable business to Shaw or something like that. Nice job if you can get it. Interesting thing about his The Woods golf course here in the city. Apparently they got complete (I mean all 18 holes) winter kill on their greens. I was a bit shocked at the odds of that and the low-down is that the fired greenskeeper(s) late last year might have put chemicals down on each green as payback. Well they haven’t proved it but the fallout of what happened is that the course is closed for the entire season. That’s pretty serious to say the least.
While I was golfing Barbie and the boys (with their two aunts) went out to the Science Centre. They had great fun and low and behold as a treat Mom found a hotwheels track they really wanted and when we got home they were busily setting it up. The boys love it and will keep them busy for a long time. Nanny and Poppy will be taking it home for us when they leave in August.
Whew … better go as my hands are tired. More updates later!!
