Will winter ever end?

Wednesday brought a very nice surprise to all that work at the courts. A judge’s position was filled by one of the most capable people that I know. A refreshing change from the usual political patronage and plum position handouts. I commend the Attorney General Chris Bentley for making the bold and correct decision to appoint John Skowronski to the post. In the few years that I have been friends with John, I have witnessed time and again good judgement, compassion and genuine interest in people that cross his path each and every day.  He is one GENUINE person, true to his word, and a man of solid work ethic and integrity. I trust him completely in every facet of his work. Now, with him in a judicial position, I know that the bench just became a little richer. A little more civil, and perhaps a little less stoic. A HUGE loss for the Crown’s office. Nothing but congratulations for his achievement from anyone I have spoken to… 

Friday brought Peter Downing back from Costa Rica. Seems he had a nice trip, and saw places that I haven’t. Just got to talk with him briefly, but except for a few bats in the bedroom…..all was well. Silly bugger got himself married on the beach while he was there. Congrats, Pete! ( and Stephanie). 

Mo and I went to Port Dover and stayed at her sister’s place on the weekend. Went to a performance at the Lighthouse Theatre which was a scream. It was a performance by “lookalike” artists….Ray Charles, Rod Stewart and Neil Diamond. Fantastic sounds, and a lot of fun. A bunch of the “old gals” in the town were up on stage with “Rod Stewart”, bringing fits of laughter from the audience. Really a neat theatre, and only a block from where we stayed. Lotsa fun…..

What’s with all the extra snow? I was hoping that it was over, and now more yet…

My dad came back from Cuba and is in the middle of getting a new apartment set up here as a base, busy indeed. Soon gladys will be here as well and back to working for the summer. Time seems to be flying by…

Getting ready to take the M/C course at Fanshawe College in May. Something I thought I would never do…more on that later.
