2005 A Good Year
Other sporting news includes the weekly badminton outing on Wednesdays, with a debriefing at the local Legion afterward. This is an enjoyable evening every time. Good people.
Jean is bowling in a Summerland league, and having fun at that. She bowled well enough to be placed on a seniors' team competing in Duncan, BC, but was unable to attend due to other commitments.
In June we went to Saskatchewan to bury Danny's best old buddy, Ed Hamm. It was a sad reason for a good trip. We also cleaned out our travel trailer, which cousin Andy Hawrysh sold for us. It had been stored on his farm near Hafford. Now we're on the lookout for a travel van. In August we went to Danny's niece's wedding in Hafford, Saskatchewan, and Jean's family reunion near Lacombe, Alberta. It's always good to connect with family both in large and small large numbers, and we enjoyed ourselves at both events.
In November we drove to California, touring through Washington and Oregon to get there. We visited family and friends along the way and did a lot of great touristy things, like visiting the High Desert Museum and the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Oregon, the Redwood Forest in California and the Maryhill Museum in Washington. We went down Highway 97, and returned via the Oregon Coast. We had fabulous warm weather and sunshine the whole time. Lucky or what! There were a few casinos along the way, too. We claim not to know much about them!! More trips are anticipated, as there is still so much to see and do in this world!

New Books In the Works
In 2005 we did further work on some books for other people. For example, we helped out on a book for a writer in Germany. When his book is finished, we will have more details on it.
Some refining was done on Volume Eleven in the folk tales series, which will be published at some point in the future. It is tentatively called "The Crystal Mountain," and it is a continuation of the series which started with "The Raspberry Hut."
We are also still working on an interactive CD based on a production created by Dave Williams of Revelstoke, BC, the author of "The Khaki Angel.". It is tentatively titled "Boys Should Live So Long." No release date has been set for this project, either, but it will be a great production when finished.
We reprinted "From the Gallows," a book which was almost sold out. We now have lots of them again!
For details on all our books, check out the Ethnic Web Site.
The Canadian Duck Club page has been updated a bit. I am still looking for more suggestions, though!
