Back on 11 November 2004, a dear friend sent me this via email to help encourage me through a VERY difficult era in my life. I’d like to share it with EVERYONE here …and, so I’ll not lose this in a pile of paperwork again.
Just HAD to share the scenery that greeted me on the morning
Why, you ask, would I have been looking for another puppy?
And, you ask… did something bad happen to Nugget?

So very many managers (and a few executives) took me “under-their-wings” over the years that I worked for a local manufacturer thus I decided to send each of them a special “Thank You” letter for all they had done for me… but, not before we (and, planet earth) had lost my number one HERO… Desi Edwards.
In your last visit to your dealership for service, what did they do to say “Thank you”?
Most readers of this post will say that their dealership did absolutely nothing!
And, in some cases, absolutely nothing really means nothing!
Many vehicle owners have chalk-marked their vehicle’s tires just to see if their dealership even moved the vehicle after they claim they’ve serviced it. Over the past few years and in far too many cases here in Oshawa, Ontario, the vehicles were never moved, yet services were charged!
In 2004, when I first discovered Phil Booth was when he wrote the horoscopes for the Toronto Star Newspaper. Eerie though this may sound, his predictions for my zodiac sign were so “bang” on so many times in a row that I started to read his horoscopes “religiously” and enjoyed the many hopeful horizons he saw in my sign.
Being only about 16 years of age at the time, my mother let me go ahead and mix up a BIG batch of Banana Bread… which I had done on several occasions. So much so that this recipe became one of my “specialties”… I loved to bake!
Having several mouths to feed and raising a rather large family on one income, my parents resorted to cost cutting measures such as purchasing things like every day baking products in bulk. My father re-modelled a cabinet to fit a small hallway just off the cooking kitchen. This cabinet had two large bins in it, one which held a large bag of flour, the other held a large bag of icing sugar and brown sugar.
