Have you lost your special friend? 

 Do you feel like a piece of you is missing? 

Nothing replaces the past.

But no one can take it away. 

Cherish the memories you have in your heart. 


There was a time when you ran to the drug store to pick up a bottle of perfume as a gift, and you just picked something off the shelf. Times are changing.  I was at the Shoppers Drug Mart  at the Steeple Hill Plaza, and had the most knowledgeable person in the fragrances I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with!  Her name is Wendy!  I hope you are rewarded for great service.  


Special Thanks to Rebecca, a

 Great Employee of the La Senza Liquidation Store in Pickering!  

She gave fantastic service!

Special thanks going to Rosalinda for her unwavering energy when it came to our gardens.


Rosalinda took a look at our gardens, listened to what we wanted them to become...and then she created!  Incredible.  She did some sketches and we headed to a nursery for a minimal purchase for something to compliment what we already had growing. It felt like one of tv shows where they have to days to fix and create usable space!  

Voila, after some hard labor...and I mean hard labor, we moved rocks that were more like small boulders! 

In our back yard we have created a special "Memory Garden" .  When my Mom passed away we had driven home in a wicked  ice/snow storm. It was late November.  Realizing I didn't get my fall planting done I went to a nursery.  The good stuff was gone. There was one really bad looking rose bush.  The fellow talked me into it.  It was only a couple of dollars and he gave a guarantee that I could bring it back if it didn't flower in the spring.  That was all I came home with.  I prepared a spot in the garden and plunked it in.  It looked pathetic. A week later I looked out, and there was this beautiful single rose! It had yellow and peachy pink petals.  I stopped in my tracks and said "thanks Mom".  And this is how our Memory Garden came to be. Nikita, our first Alaskan Malamute, used to love the memory garden. It was one of her favorite places to lay . When she passed away, we put some special things in to honor her memory. 

Do you know how many songs I have written in connection with this memory garden?  Start counting.

Remember... Don't Drink and Drive


Had a lovely evening at the home of Syd the Kid.  As usual she was a grand host!  Her Christmas Open Houses are legendary at the very least!  


We had a great time over the holidays.  Starting with the VON Tea in Peterborough December 8th.  Mrs. Clause won my cd in the raffle, and I hope you really enjoy it. Those cookies you sent home with me vanished over night!   I look forward to visiting you again soon! 



We caroled on our street, and we  jammed/caroled at our home.  We had a good turnout and enjoyed everyone!   Thanks for making the holiday season extra special!  (Especially Curtis- Keep Smiling Buddy!) 

Your Drawings are still on my fridge!


We spent Christmas day with Jody and his family!  They have now "adopted" us for holidays! 


We attended a jam this past thursday night at the Irish Times, where I did my naughty version of Santa Baby.  It was a great evening.  



We are thinking that we will stay close to home for New Years Eve.   We often bring in some seafood, lobster, shrimp  etc. and have a nice evening at home.   Sometimes we are still up to ring in the new year.  We are in relax mode for the next few days...then back to the grindstone, working on the next album!
