I find that I watch more TV now. I never seem to stop and watch any show from start to finish. I always find myself watching something else. When someone asks me what I watched. I don;t even remember which ones because I just flick through the remote constantly. In the end, I haven't really watched anything.
Humming birds are out again. If you plan to take photos of humming birds, and if your camera has multiple exposure settings, Try using that. Because the humming birds are just too fast to capture, you won't even know if they wre actually in the photos as they are tiny!
Decided to go out walking today.. .... alone.... with my thoughts...
New haircut. Not quite the haircut I wanted, but It will do. I haven't really found any barber or hairstylist that had much talent in this area. In Calgary I had found an oriental lady (born and raised in Canada) who knew how to cut fine, limp Asian hair like mine. But I can't go to Calgary just for a hairstyle. I am stuck with keeping my hair short because, It seems that's the only hairstyle the haircutting people can do in this area.
Crowsnest Mountain, Alberta
The Famous Fernie Ghost Rider Shadow - According to Fernie.com : Lying in the shadows, a legend waits for the afternoon sun. On a summer evening, out of Mt. Hosmer’s face, comes the Ghostrider – the shadow of a distinctive horse and rider, the ghost some say of an angry Indian Chief and his jilted daughter pursuing William Fernie.
As legend tells it, William Fernie was courting an Indian Princess to learn the source of her sacred black stone necklace. It is said that after learning the secret location of the Morrissey Coal Seams, Fernie stopped seeing the Princess and the tribe’s medicine woman placed a curse on the Elk Valley.
Residents of Fernie feared the curse was real after several tragedies struck the town. Fire reduced the town to smoldering rubble in 1904 and again in 1908. In 1916, the Elk River flooded and in 1917 there was a mining disaster. A public ceremony in 1964 officially lifted the curse. Members of the Kootenay Tribes assembled in Fernie and Chief Red Eagle (Ambrose Gravelle) and Fernie Mayor James White smoked a pipe of peace.
Although the curse was lifted over 35 years ago, on summer evenings, the ghost of an angry Indian chief and his jilted daughter still rides above Fernie and their legend lives on in the shadows of the mountain.
Well, that's all folks! until next mail!
