It was a strange year this one. It went by extremely fast. I felt like there was so much more I could have done but no time to do it. I golfed a lot which is great. We golfed lots with Jeff & Wendy and I golfed at my Turner Valley golf course. We had some wonderful courses this year we played. I had some nice projects I finished off. We grew a garden for the first time. I had a couple of fishing trips and one fly in fishing trip that was awesome. We had some great weekend and weekday trips. May Long at Sylvan was awesome, our trip to Waterton was fantastic, trip to Gennifer was great and a lot of adventures all around.
This picture year in review is in opposite of times starting off with Dec 2022 and leading to January 2022.
But the piece de resistance was our trip to Disney in December. The timing was right due to missing a vacation due to covid and the boys ages dictating when to go we needed to get it done. Jackson being 11 and Auggie being 5 if we waited any longer Jack would be too old to have his awe and wonder of the place and if we had done it any earlier Auggie would not have been able to get on the rides. Auggie was tall enough to go on every ride!
Best trip ever ! I tease Jackie with the cost it could have been a Europe Cruise. Having said that, to have the whole family together and to have the time we had is priceless. I know it will be in the memory banks forever.
Best trip ever !
It is a memory that I am sure will last for everyone.
Frosty morning in Arizona in December for my golf game.
This fine gentleman turning the ripe old age of 65
Jackie & I headed up the street decorating committee and I am proud of what we accomplished. Since 2007 our street has been lack luster in its Christmas display. I love the new signs and house lights for everyone. Thanks to Fred for helping build all 30 of these and to the committee members that painted them.
One of the best surprises. Fred lost a few bets on football and left this on my counter for our arrival this fall.

Socializing, gathering, talking to neighbors and friends I am sure makes you enjoy life and live longer. Potluck at our house.
Fred & I have a tradition of green beer at Fat Willy’s. For years we have done this, and we were pleased to have Jeff & Ralph join us. Unfortunately, Ralph sold his place as he decides what they what to do and Jeff isn’t down here for 2023. Fun times.
Nothing better than gatherings. Amanda was visiting Fred & Terry.
Lots of golf with these two in Arizona
Daisy loves her friends in Arizona as she gets to play everyday.

I could have put a lot more, but this is just some of the highlights. As I said it went by SO FAST and I felt we could have done a lot more things, but it was a fun year.
I do have to say that we are enjoying life very much. A great family, a wonderful group of close friends, many social friends from Viewpoint, Golfing, Turner Valley and ex co-workers. I still enjoy “bugging” people about their choice in sport teams, their birthdays and political views. Most don’t appear to upset so I will carry on. LOL
We had some wonderful camping, fishing, golfing and gatherings this year. If I had to pick my favorite thing of 2022 it would be our Disney trip as a life long memory.
WE ALL HOPE FOR GOOD HEALTH, GOOD FREINDSHIP AND FUN TIMES FOR 2023
