Epic Flooding in Okanagan, BC!

If you would have asked me a year ago that the Okanagan in British Columbia Canada would be all flooded, I would have laughed at you. Well I can say that the lake is at a record time high, and all of the beaches from Vernon, to Penticton B.C. are all closed and flooded. My husband and I went for a walk this afternoon to check out how high the lake is, and we could not believe how bad it really is. I took some pictures of the damage the water has done at one of our favorite beaches. This is one of the beaches that is still open, but for how much longer we do not know.

The reason for the lake being so high is because we had so much snow this year, and we had a very late Spring...

Tribute To My Beloved Blacks!

bdayblacks 18 years and11 months ago you came into my life. You were born in a cotton box with three other male kittens. You were the only black kitten, the runt of the litter, and female. I knew the moment I laid eyes on you that you were the kitten for me. Blacks you brought so much joy into my life. When I was sad you would lick away my tears when, and I was happy you would always were always around to bring even more joy to my life. You traveled to another Province with me by plane, and automobile. You were my other half, my familiar, and the best friend that any guardian could have.

I’m so blessed to be able to spend the ...

I Saved A Mamma Hen and Her Ducklings!

The other day (on my way to college) I saw a mother hen and her nine little ducklings making their way towards the busiest highway in my town, -Oh my! I immediately sprang into action and started to try and divert them away from the highway. It wasn’t long before others joined in the quest, and we all went to work trying everything we could to try and catch mamma and her youngsters so we could move them to the nearby stream. I took lots of pictures of the duckling drama.

We finally did finally manage to get mamma hen and her ducklings over to a near by vet and they were able to catch her and relocate them to the stream. It took me and five strangers (and the police) from 8:45am-11:00am to help mamma and her ducklings.

The most amazing part was having the little ducklings in my hands...
