Hi everyone. Feel free to comment on this post if you have a memory to share. I'd like to take some of them and set them as posts, so don't be surprised if that happens to yours.

And just to get us all started I want to tell you a story a neighbour of Dad's told me the other day when I ran into him at Dairy Queen...

One day Russell, Dad's neighbour, was in his backyard doing some gardening when he felt something hit him on the back. He looked around, but all he saw was his wife on their deck not paying any attention to him. He shrugged and went back to his weeding, when he felt something skim his shoulder. He looked up again, and this time yelled at his wife, "What are you doing???" She acted confused, and asked him what he meant?

"What are you throwing at me?" he said.

"Nothing! What are you talking about?"

Russell was getting pretty frustrated by this point, and was just about to tell his wife off when he heard laughter from two yards away.

My dad was outside on his deck, lofting crab apples, and very much enjoying the show.

That is so funny. I can just picture him doing that and laughing at his own joke.
