July Long Weekend

Sorry for the poor writing. Sarah hasn't updated "our" site in awhile so I thought if I posted something she'd probably edit and change everything. (Most likely you're not even reading this)

So we had a long weekend. July 1st is Canada day and the Monday was off for most everybody. I happened to get some visitors from out of town, so I took Fri-Sun off. Some old friends from my ISS high school days. Phil attended our wedding, and is from Germany, but we last saw him together with Gareth 2 summers ago in London. We commented that we always seem to get together when there are bombs going off in London. Kind of Strange.

And finally Gavin. Hadn't seen the guy in 8 years. He looked older and more mature, but I'm only saying looked mature. He was the same old :)

We'll hopefully post more this upcoming weekend. Supposedly the first days of summer have arrived. 30+ C degrees (80+F). This weekend we'll throw a massive pool party and if you know about this blog, you're invited.

Ben is the pool party swimsuit optional? Are you going to fill up an inflatable pool in the backyard or what? Will there be cold beverages (preferably Sleemans Honey Brown) chilled to approximately one degree served by waiters in tuxedos? Do we need to bring our own towels or will you have warm towel service on site? Lastly, does the pool have a sensor to detect when a guest has urinated in the water because that can be quite embarrassing. Thank you in advance for addressing my questions.

No. Based on the fact that we don't want to make people sick, swimwear is mandatory.
No. Real pool at my parents.
Yes and no. Cold beverages, no Sleeman's. We'll have to do that later.
and No. Tuxedos were all rented, sorry. We did however manage to make a waitlist for some trained penguins, but we're 4th on the list, so don't get your hopes up.
Yes. Bring your own towels.
Yes. It can be quite embarrassing to have sensors point out your mistakes, so we will disable them for the day.
Your welcome,
