August in Elko

Dear Friends and Family,

The temperature has been really high here for a while and It's like Philippine weather. Everybody is enjoying the summer heat with trips to visit friends and family and going to the lakes. I don't mind the heat of summer. I am hoping everybody is doing well. I am sending my love to all of you.

With Kathy. She is one of our friends from Fernie. Ron, Kathy and I went out walking one afternoon under the heat of the sun! oh my! quite a change - It makes walking harder.

One of the mountains from our short walk that afternoon.

Ron, Fox and Kathy by the bridge.

Frankie and Debbie came to visit one day. Here they are with Ron on one of our afternoon walk around Elko.

Frankie and Debbie's Visit.

It's good to recycle. With all the popcans and beer cans and plastic bottles we have accumulated in the shed, We had gotten $55.85 back! Isn't that great!

This is the Bottle depot. It was quite busy when i was there. But I find that after having done several trips there for the past months, I have somehow developed a very efficient way of sorting recyclables.

I wonder what "HELL" this little cart went through to get in such poor shape? I saw this at auntie Pepitas backyard. I think she rescued the poor thing from the streets. hehe.

Ribs - Filipino style. It has a bit of sweetness to it. Very very good.

Tita Juanita's birthday party. Happy Birthday Tita!

Marichu and Alfonse Portrait... oops!

I eventually got a more decent shot other than this, but I like the candidness of this photo.

I returned my iPod nano and added a little bit more money so I could get this iPod - iTouch - It does so many things. Videos, You Tube, Browsing the web, Address book, e-mails, It even had maps, Plays music, Podcasts, Calculator, Photos in a tiny but very expensive budget. It you get an e-mail from me and it is so short, chances are i wrote it from my iTouch. I am amazed at how far technology has gone with these tiny devices.

DQ - One hot afternoon, it was their airconditioning that attracted me, not the food. Where I got to read the paper and relax a bit.

A photo from the newspaper I was reading at that time.

A few weeks ago, Headline News was so horrifying that I had nightmares. This is the photo of the man who wad identified as having stabbed, beheaded and Eaten another man who was sleeping at the back of a Greyhound Bus, one night in Saskatchewan. The details of it were so unbelievable - Like a horror movie. The night after I had read it, I woke up screaming! I had taken the Greyhound bus several times in the past 4 years and I remember having sat and slept at the back of the many times.

I took this while I was driving home.

This is how I take photos when I am driving. My eyes are still focused on the road ahead. My photos will all be just "guesses and approximates" sometimes they turn out OK.

The Burger stand - Ron enjoying his onion rings and hotdog!

On our way to the lake today, we had stopped by the gas station and I had the chance to see what the tabloids have to say. Charles has a GAY Secret? hmmmm. If he did, he might as well spare everyone from the drama and admit to it. So shallow!!! Who cares if he had a gay secret anyway?

An old store in Jaffray. This store is about 100 years old now. Thus the design. hehe. It was wonderful!

Happy mother and her kids in Surveyors lake, which is only 11 minutes away from home.
