|Dean woke me up at 3:30 am to get to SeaTac for my 6:00 am flight. Both of my flights were on time and on schedule. I flew from Seattle to Vancouver, Vancouver to Toronto. Dad was supposed to fly from Calgary to Toronto, but got rerouted to Edmonton before heading to Toronto – they upgraded him to first class so he really didn’t mind. Bev picked us up at the airport, had a little mishap with her purse but I’m not allowed to write about it . . . . . Then off to my cousin Arthur and his wife Shirley’s for dinner. Gilda and Danny came as well and we had the best evening! Arthur is a great cook – he made the best lasagna and veal Parmesan and cherry pie for desert. Shannon, Shirley’s daughter came home before we left so we got to meet their beautiful daughter. We live so very far apart, but I still felt a connection and bond because family is family after all.
