Today: Island time. From a Chemainus to Cassidy Airport drive with my Mom, to contemplative ocean time. Then some relative family time visit.
Grandma’s getting old, she’s till sweet, and pretty upbeat, but not very communicative. Her talking consists mostly of repeating your last sentence and adding the word “lovely” or “wonderful” afterwards. She’s gone simple, but she’s happy.

I then went to visit My favorite Uncle Owen, and my Auntie Birdie. Good quality time with cucumber sandwiches, cigarettes and a game of Scrabble I won quite handily. Then they sent me home. I guess I deserved it.

But a nice visit just the same. That’s why I came home, really. That and the hockey game with Dad tonight.
