Winter years approach so MJ goes to Florida after FMCC party

As the Winter of my years approaches, not quite there yet, my life is undergoing changes as the adventure continues.

One the biggest over the past two and one half years or so, is the Friday Morning Coffee Club, the hour or so I spend each week with some of the greatest guys I have ever met.

FMCC was founded in the Starbucks at the Target store.

 We now meet at White Spot, but on occasion move to other locations for special occasions.

In fact, before I left for Orlando, FMCC held a birthday party for me. We try to hold them for all the members, and renditions of Happy Birthday are tremendous.

A good number of our members sing in choirs, singing groups and so on, so it is really a special moment, when they wish Happy Birthday, led by founding member Joel Vinge.

We went to the Pines in Kimberley last Friday where Gordon has been spending a week, and what a great place that is.

Thanks to the Pines for letting us use their special room.

On a sad note though, our good friend Peter Davidson, died recently while out hiking with friends.

Joel asked us to join him in a moment's silence for Peter. I extend my most sincere sympathy to Maureen, and all of Peter's family and friends.

Peter, my friend, you were the good shepherd. Rest In Peace.

Another change this year is that I am writing from Orlando, Florida, where I am visiting my good friends Michael and Nory. This is the first time in my life I have not been in Canada for my birthday.

Thanks to Joel for sending me the photos and to Jim for his help as always.

Finally, thanks so much for all the good wishes. They make those approaching Winter years so much more positive.

Every blessing to all!

Michael

  1. You're in Florida now, Michael. Don't get your feet wet and watch for alligators.
    Or is it crocodiles? What's the difference anyway?
