STILL HANGING - WITH THE BIRDS, THAT IS

Life continues during our stay in the Shuswap.  We have finished our appointments butr still have more friends to visit.  We will be prolonging our stay over the weekend as Kevin is going to visit Bev in Fort McMurray so Aileen will be looking after the grand dogs.  
I have been sorting through boxes of slides and scanning a few of them.  Still have thousands to go.  I've been trying to toss out as many as possible to minimize the bulk.  
 I think we will pull out of here on Wednesday then take the ferry over to Victoria Thursday.  As is common with RVers, those are jello plans, subject to modification.
