Ask a Stupid Question Day
Also my oldest grandson’s 8th birthday. Of course his favorite past time is playing video games or watching YouTube videos of others playing video games. I’m certain part of his day will include sitting in front of a screen.
One of his battles is epilepsy, absent seizures, (he calls them glitches) that his teacher and peers thought were behaviour issues, lack of attention, lack of comprehension, inability to control his bladder. Getting a diagnosis was a long, frustrating and difficult task, during which he lost grade 1. Once diagnosed, the treatment (a daily dose of foul tasting medication) has lead to no seizures in 15 months. The type of epilepsy he deals with he will probably outgrow, but the stigma of the seizures label a child. Luckily his grade 1 teacher got transferred and the grade 2 teacher only met a wonderful attentive brilliant child.
He is a wonderful happy child who gets along well with others. His parents are loving and kind, always looking out for his best interests. He is blessed to still have 2 sets of grandparents to love him and watch over him. As you can tell he has stolen my heart.
Trees bear fruits only to be eaten by others;
the fields grown grains, but they are consumed by the world.
Cows give milk, but she doesn’t drink it herself – that is left to others.
Clouds send rain only to quench the parched earth.
In such giving, there is little space for selfishness.
~ Munshi Premchand (July 31, 1880 – October 8, 1936)
In celebration of 25 years the Strathroy-Caradoc Horticultural Society Garden Tour was held Sunday, July 14th, 2019 from 10AM – 2PM.
All proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Rural Resource Centre.
Starting at 10AM on Sunday July 14th, 2019 volunteers at the Library were selling Passports for anyone who didn’t take advantage of the $8 Passports sold prior to the date.
An amazing contribution by those who opened their yards for the community to walk through, all the volunteers, and sponsors.

Procrastination is the thief of time.

The camera is my tool.
Through it I give a reason to everything around me.

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
