a good friend, far and away,
gave me this
fabulous book (by nancy Bush).
Next week i will be
Knitting on the road (so to speak).
I'll be going to Quebec City
with the Knitting Companion.
I'll be teaching and he will
be exploring the Plains of Abraham for
his first time. No doubt he will
be soaking up all the culture.

Ode to Olive
Olive and I met quite a long time ago.
We were "across the hall neighbours".
We lived in an older, small size
apartment building. Everyone had a tiny
little door/cupboard beside their front door.
Long ago, this was used by the milkman
Olive and i used to leave each
other surprises in the milk boxes.
Many a night, after one of
her "lady parties" or
committee meetings, a little note would be slipped
under my door to alert me to a special something
waiting in my milk box.
I liked to surprise her by decorating her
milk box as well as her front door from
time to time. She was a good sport and
seemed to enjoy the change of scene.
Olive had a big love for animals.
She was the sort of lady
who has a "lady like" apartment.
Olive loved cottage holidays in the summers.
Olive was a marvellous friend.
Kind and generous.
Warm and loving and very brave.
I miss her
