I have been waiting for summer to arrive since last fall, and finally it is here. This week I will be leaving for our annual family fishing trip to the West Coast which I have written about more than once. I will be offline for a week or two. Sadly our travel plans through the Rockies might be changed with the flood damage to the Calgary area. Equally disappointing will be a smaller version of the world famous Calgary Stampede as flood waters have completed covered the grounds. My mom thoroughly enjoys putting her horse on display in the horse barns every year. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose homes have been ravaged by nature.
