AS YOU CAN SEE………THE LILAC BUSHES ARE FINALLY STARTING TO BLOOM UP HERE NORTH OF 57…….

 THEY ARE ACTUALLY A LITTLE EARLY THIS YEAR…. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY….. THEY BLOOM IN APRIL ON THE WEST COAST OF CANADA……. THAT IS QUIT A TIME DIFFERENCE……

 RIGHT AFTER OUR MORNING RUN YESTERDAY, DENISA HAD TO DRIVE HER BUS TO FORT McMURRAY SO IT COULD GET IT’S THOROUGH  TWICE ANNUAL SAFETY INSPECTION……

I FOLLOWED HER INTO TOWN WITH THE CAR SO SHE COULD GET HOME…… WE NEVER KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL BE IN THE SHOP BUT WE HOPE IT WON’T BE LONG…….

 IT’S A NICE 10C (50F)……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……
