Now that supper is over the sun has decided to show his face. It's a bit too late I tell the sun and the tiny tissue of cloud that he is using to cover up his vital parts is very threadbare.
Tomorrow is another busy day and I have just found out older boy is sick far away. It's very maudlin. He's gone to bed early. He never goes to bed early and so he is really sick. With all the socializing he did while he was here in Edmonton it's probably the reason why he came down with a cold interacting with crowds of folks like he did. Hopefully he will recover without the tea and oregano drops that I forgot to give him.
I will check on him tomorrow by text or Skype.
Where was I? Yes the sun has come out. There are folks kicking a ball on the soccer field even though the field looks damp and the grass is ugly. All the trees are moving towards bumps on their branches. Younger boy still is not able to register in the class he needs and I can't pay for his NAIT stuff until he does register. He has not found a summer job. All he does is get up late and work on his animation stuff. He has to get going on the driving license that is also behind schedule. Most of my life is spent as a Blue Heeler dog moving children towards milestones that are sooo late. Older boy just got two years of driving done at 21 years of age and younger boy has no interest in driving at all.
I'd better go look at the Alice Modin Award for Ruth Adria now.
Minister’s Seniors Service Awards

This year, we are announcing the inaugural Alice Modin Award to recognize a senior who has provided long-term volunteer service to their community, promotes volunteerism, or whose volunteer efforts have had a provincial impact.

2016 Minister’s Seniors Service Awards
In 2016, Alberta Seniors and Housing received 63 nominations: 50 individuals and 13 organizations. All nominees were recognized at Community Celebrations held in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer and Whitecourt during Seniors' Week, June 6-12.
Each fall, award recipients are recognized at a ceremony and dinner at Government House. Seniors and Housing Minister Lori Sigurdson has selected the individuals and organizations that will be honoured this year based on the recommendations of a review panel comprised of ministry staff and chaired by Edmonton-Whitemud MLA Dr. Bob Turner. Congratulations to this year’s award recipients!
